    I think on the budget gamer build, it would be cool to limit your the budget to around the most expensive consoles+ an OS. A budget PC vs a console. Consoles may be 4 years old, but it's a guaranteed performance. That would be a real price/performance comparison.

    Really gotta hate the legality that prevents contests from being set up easily in RI.
