I am pretty sure my GT 640 is a more powerful GPU than what's in the Xbone4

They all are, no one seriously thinks they can get a proper gaming machine for under 500 dollars.


$500 will get you a lot more with black Friday sales and if the next gen geforce or amd cards are out by then... I am just sayin.


But why would you want to? Why not build a good machine instead?

Xbone plus a year of Live build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3yf4K

Top end of your budget build: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3yf8V

Both builds have an i5 4570, build one has 4 gigs of ram plus a 2 gig 660, build 2 has 8 gigs and a 760. Build one should be comfortable for 1080p at least until Sony/MS allow devs to access the systems' full ram (They currently have 3.5 gigs blocked from access allowing a total system+GPU memory of 4.5 gigs).

Build two should be comfortable at 1080 for the foreseeable future. Unless reqs bloat for no reason (like Crysis 3 requiring DX11, COD Ghosts 6 gigs of ram fiasco) it should have enough of a lead to play anything that comes out this gen, especially once DX12 comes out, providing the hardware lasts that long without an issue. If the 360/PS3 are any indicator though I doubt a single launch console will last that long either.

You have the same mistake as me and Boge where you're using MicroCenter prices on two major components. It's not likely for the TC to necessarily have access to a MicroCenter, so the build will likely end up being closer to $700 if you try to combine both an i5 and 760.
(( It is of my own Volition to act as I have. ))

Those aren't in-store exclusive deals though. I don't see why you wouldn't order from them to save $30 on a gpu and $5 on a PSU while you're at it.

The only other part that isn't from amazon/newegg is the HDD and that's a whopping 1 more expensive on amazon.
