Is it possible to build a computer from scratch that will outperform PS4 @ $400?

FSB speeds haven't kept up with ram i3 i5 and i7, fx-6300,fx8350 still have slow fsb compared to ram. You can't set the ram to the CPU clock. Current estimates are in the 100Mhz range for FSB.

DO NOT listen to this guy. His PC is a load of crap with insanely crappy parts. He is still spouting this BS. Honestly he should be banned but the mods don't care.


He just wants to warm up your house =[...To critical temperatures.

None of this matters because of console exclusive games and community/ native controller support.

/end topic. seriously

It just ISN'T the same. But I understand PC gamers will never see eye to eye when it comes to this.

Yeah, parts going up makes it hard. Back before the mining craze you could get a 7870 for $130 and 7850's for $110 on sale or after MIR, and it included the AMD bundle when they still had more games available.

There were also some great holiday deals on processors with mobo combos. Microcenter had the best ones, but Newegg and Amazon also had some great prices.

RAM has stayed pretty close the same, but I'm sure there were some good deals to save a little bit.

It would be smart if Newegg would do a DIY full build deal at around $500 to compete with the new consoles and include Win 8. It'd be entirely possible since they usually discount those DIY sales by $75-100.


The problem is that discounts need to be relative. That's a ~20% discount for a DIY PC. Not out of the question, but you usually don't see deals that good.

Read a professional review, logisys PSUs are beyond trash, their '600w' models burn out instantly at the 375w mark. Their 80+ labels are counterfeit. They deliver more power on the 5v rail than the 12v rail. Just everything about them is a problem waiting to happen.
