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!
