One thing is that when these consoles release, I will surely buy one of them.

But I don`t know if it is worth to have both. (Because these next-gen consoles have similar specs as gaming PC`s).

These are the reasons for why I want the gaming PC:
-To stream PC games in NVIDIA Shield. (Also not sure if NVIDIA Shield worth it).
-It will not just be for gaming, also for working.
-Only playing games like Crysis 3 and Battlefield 3. (Only few games).
-I would prefer to buy it at Cyberpower.

Budget: No more than $950

I think it's worth it to have a gaming rig and a ps4/xbox one. You're going to find that some games are better on console and some on PC. If i had to choose, however, i'd go with just a PC.

Okay, so as long as your PC is capable, if a console game has a PC equivalent, the PC version will be better. I'd only get a console for certain exclusives.
