Well you can divide your games.I mean,PC is best for all shooter games and console is good for racing games and fifa.But,with PC gaming,you get much better graphics and the games are way cheaper than console games,so its really up to you

Please please please do not buy a $20 PSU. Buy aby Seasonic,XFX,Corsair PSU about 450w or more, they can be had for a little more money but they will serve your system much more reliably than that piece of crap in the video.

Well,i would suggest you get another RAM(4 GB or 8) of the same brand you are using for better compatibilty. I have never heard of the mobo though,,,your graphics card is good,,so is the PSU

Also on what i see on the internet,your motherboard is not that good.So it would be better for you to get a new one from a better brand like Gigabyte,ASrock etc.

ECSmakes some OK motherboards. The good ones are usually ASUS, Asrock, Gigabyte or MSI. As for the RAM, dont use 1 stick, that CPU is designed for DUAL CHANNEL RAM, meaning 2 sticks, one in each channel.

February 3, 2014 9:41:56 PM

Your PC is good enough for now, that 500W CM PSU is enough to power your system so there's no big worry about that either

In terms of raw performance it should keep up with the PS4 for a few years

You don't need a dual channel kit of memory if you're running a dedicated GPU, in your case the GTX 660 so you won't lose out on much performance, if at all with a single stick of 8GB, no need to buy another stick at this moment

Dual channel memory only makes a big performance difference if you're running an integrated chip such as an APU

Also, a "Steam Machine" is just a PC with SteamOS installed, just use your XBOX controller as above with your PC and you should be fine for the next few years

In regards to games, Steam Sale prices are crazy low so you'll be able to pick up some great games at very low prices during sales, another thing to keep in mind

Yes! thats what i am saying too,,,you dont need a ps4,,,but change the mobo if you can.And as the guy above me says,,you dont need a RAM immediately

Yes, upgrading your PC will be better, though it'll be quite limited in this case since the 760G mobos throttle with the 8 core FX CPUs, so if you want an upgrade path to a better chip like the 8320 or 8350 then you'd want a good 970 mobo like the Asus M5A97 R2.0 (non-LE)

If you had an 8320 and a decent board like the one I just mentioned, in a few years you could just upgrade your GPU and you'll be fine for gaming at higher settings again and will definitely outperform the consoles which will remain the same after all these years

i think 500 dollars is good to upgrade the mobo and chip.and if not,then just upgrade the mobo and you will be good to go.upgrade the chip later when you have more budget

Yep, that'd be the best thing to do, stick with a decent 970/990FX motherboard and upgrade the CPU or overclock your 6300 with them to help with future GPU upgrades (Asrock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 or Asus M5A97 R2.0 should do great)
