Yeah I'd recommend the ps4 for that price. You can't build a worthwhile PC for that price. Speaking as someone that built a $400 PC in 2008 for the purpose of gaming. It's horrible at everything else and I regret it.

why don't you lower you expectations with that meager budget. $400 will likely get 720 or 900p at med to high settings for those games. Also expect to cut some extreme corners. like finding a 15 dollar case and $25 on the psu. It could be done if you can get to a microcenter.

Best move is to get the ps4 at 400. 600 or more then we can talk about you getting a great game tower. 400 is just troll talk

Keep an eye on newegg. There are some DIY kits on the shell shocker daily deals that aren't terrible. There was an A10 build for like $300 on there the other day. Sure, it's not the best, but there's room to upgrade as well. And it wouldn't make a bad media center PC or steambox either.

Unless you want something that is not worth it, I say save at least an extra 100.

Search for the build thread, cloudx and I have two builds for about that cost, for mine turn the 8gb ram down to one stick of 4gb and you'd be below $400. Both require overclocking though.
