Hi Guys,

After asking in the forum elsewhere I was planning to build a gaming PC with (FX6330 - Asus M5A99X - Asus R9 270X - 8GB RAM 1.6ghz) hoping that it will last for a couple of years at least, with rooms for upgrades the CPU and refresh, allowing me to play next gen games with high settings.................but then doubts came to mind

My question and reason for the topic is...do you think that next gen will help PC gaming due to similar architecture or we are eventually seeing what has been said for years and years without really happening: a decline of PC gaming with less and less new IP and exclusive?

We all know that PC are far more powerful than consoles however I am talking about facts and trends. Even if Steam (which I love) is making good numbers!

What do you think?


(Please avoid to end up doing console-PC war...and what you think about that rig?)

Well I personally am seeing a move away from consoles among my friends and even some newer gamers are asking me to build PC's for them

It seems that to me PC has nearly reached a state of consoleness in that they are relatively easy to manage for the most part now if you know some people

I would say they coexist, since my PC actually requires minimal tweaking and I can fire it up and start a game right away for myself, only hard part is choosing parts and building

building is easy if you got a tutorial and we here help people choose parts

I see consoles and PC's being competitors but its not an exclusive either or choice

I have been playing PC games since the 8086 CPU (so a long ago lol) my first and only console was the Xbox 360 (sold today) and I actually enjoyed a lot, no need of upgrade to keep up with a fair quality of details.

What do you think about the above configuration? It is not iper expensive but hopefully enough to play next-gen game with high settings!

I have also found this interesting list of titles with a list of the one coming out on PC.

I'm a bit longer fellow with my first PC being an Pentium III :p 

I expect you'll be able to hit 50+fps in 1080p high for most games

Yep I would go for that motherboard because of possibility of upgrade the CPU.

1) "Plug and play" games, no settings
2) Too many upgrades required
3) Small case / living room

Are factors that are helping the console market going up and up along with the "factor 0" Piracy even if with Steam things seem to go a bit better.

well mITX builds are decently sized

upgrading is personal decision, some may feel need to upgrade to feel their PC is better than console

Plug and play is almost there I think

Steam is doing pretty good
