Low budget computer VS Xbox one???

Hi I used to be an Xbox360 gamer but i want to switch to pc gaming. I don't want to build a computer so I want a pre-build. I was looking at the Digitalstorm Vanquish level 1 and that at $700 is at my max price range for a desktop tower.

So my question is, would i be disappointed if i decided to get this computer over the Xbox one???

  1. If you're looking for prebuilt, you probably wouldn't get there. If you were willing to build you could easily beat the Xbox One, but you probably wouldn't be satisfied with what pre-built can get you.

    see the thing about console systems are that when they are new they can beat what you can build by a little but the pcs usually have more versatility and last longer if kept up here is my suggestions for a pc you can build :D (ps you can overclock a bit but dont get extreme with it ;) )

    here is a good pc for that price range that is pre built through but it will not be able to do what you want it to

  3. Well, 3 things:

    1) He said he wanted pre-built

    2) The 270 is out of stock there because of miners, so that isn't viable

    and 3) There is no OS included.

    I completely agree with what you're saying, but for going pre-built, it just isn't worth it right now.

    thank you for telling me that i forgot the os (edited it in now) and it is still possible to find them 270s it will be a little hard but hey you know
  5. That Walmart PC won't get near what the Xbox can do though, although it's a great all-around PC. This is why I hate pre-builts lol
  6. if building a pc really isn't that difficult i can give it a try. I just am not experienced enough to know that best parts for the price.

    If you want to build, something like this would beat an Xbox in gaming, and you would get between high/ultra at 1080p, where the Xbox gets about medium/some high. Building is actually pretty easy, you can check out LinusTechTips and CareyHolzman on YouTube to see how easy it can be.
