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

Anything but CX430=fire hazard

Amirite?


In that price range?
Actually, yeah. Pretty much exactly that.

It has decent reviews though so why is it a fire hazard.

I learned where the killer part comes from at least.

You know what else gets decent reviews? Hookers. You know what will still make you wake up with a burning sensation? Your PS4 killer.

The reviewers must be hyped more the thrills of the afterlife than my PC.

Amirite?

How could they possibly be using the power supplies with no issues at all?

If you only have 400 dollars to spend on a PC for gaming, your money would be better spent elsewhere.

The PSUs threatened to blow up their families.

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.


implying the pc master race cares about console peasant exclusives.

Also I would be shocked if that build outperforms a PS4. The GPU would most likely be bottleneck by the CPUs. I also doubt those server based CPU's will out perform The PS4's CPU.

the 375w burnout point is really high to a typical home user. That's about what an i7/770 draw. A celeron/pentium system and integrated graphics isn't going to pull nearly that much. Your system, on the other hand, has 2 server grade CPUs and a midrange gpu. I'd let you do the math but it's painfully and sadly obvious that you don't know how numbers work.
