He doesn't have money to afford a $400 console how is he going to afford a $1,200 average pc set up or a $800 mediocre pc set up?

My computer was a $900 set up and has ran flawlessly for 2 years now without a single upgrade.

The **** kind of ******** prices do you pull out of your ass.

The amount of money I spent on my computer to be able to play starcraft.

Tell me he's not using a PC in step two
#98 to #95 - fuckingtrolls (06/28/2014) [-]
Because a factory PC has the capability of running games flawlessly without paying an average of $122 for a decent graphics card and another $349 for a decent cpu.

Bitch please, I have a 2007 PC with vista, 3GB of RAM, and as long as I put graphics in low, (sometimes even medium) I get solid 40 fps (it's not perfect, but it works just fine)
#242 to #240 - fuckingtrolls (06/28/2014) [-]
graphics in low

Good enough to play and have fun.

Don't even remember to be honest. it's been 7 years already

I don't have a good memory what can I say.
User avatar #253 to #251 - fuckingtrolls (06/28/2014) [-]
***** . if you want something that's good enough to play and have fun with and not expensive as **** get a ******* console.
#255 to #253 - hairibar (06/28/2014) [-]
Meh. I paid around 500€ - 600€, I think.

Taking into account that anything less than 30fps is a ******* slideshow, this is much better.

Plus, I needed a computer for reasons beyond gaming too, anyway
User avatar #258 to #255 - fuckingtrolls (06/28/2014) [-]
***** what are you doing
User avatar #257 to #255 - fuckingtrolls (06/28/2014) [-]
factory condition computers are total **** for gaming though.
User avatar #103 to #98 - akl ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
>only decent cpu
The **** kind of cpu do you have for a gaming computer with a $122 gpu?
User avatar #104 to #103 - fuckingtrolls (06/28/2014) [-]
sorry m8
That's 349 for the 4gb of 1333mhz ram, h61M-D2h gigbyte motherboard, and the Intel Pentium G860 3 GHz Dual-Core Processor all together.
User avatar #108 to #104 - akl ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
pcpartpicker.com/p/4xKrYJ Honestly with some price hunting the whole computer could cost about that much for a low-mid range build.
User avatar #262 to #108 - pwnfrnzy (06/28/2014) [-]

A little bit extra, but double the RAM and triple the CPU cores.
User avatar #275 to #262 - akl ONLINE (06/28/2014) [-]
Most, if not all games can't even use 6 logical processors, and the i3 has better individual core performance.

I would definitely agree with getting 8gb of 1600mhz over the 4g 1333, but I was just using equivalent-ish parts other than the i3.
User avatar #277 to #275 - pwnfrnzy (06/28/2014) [-]
I do agree that the i3 has better core performance, but not all games use Hyper-threading, which could in-turn rob the user of performance from games not using that technology since the game will run it like it's a standard dual-core.

I chose a hexa-core so the game can use four logical processing cores since most, if not all games today are capable of using up to four cores, and use the other two for small tasks running in the background, thus having some breathing room and not loosing performance in the process.

Can't even run tf2 on that ****

>implying he wants to play at top graphics
>you're not gonna with a console anyway
Saving $400 bucks and getting a few, great old games like Halo 1, star wars battlefront II, tf2, WoW, the list goes on.

I thought the point of the whole PC master race thing was based on the quality of the graphics and the better frame rates.

I had made a big reply for someone else but the comment is deleted after I logged in so here is it for you:

Why PC gaming (Hybridfag here, I have both - grew up with console)

1. Price, typ. 30% cheaper games on release and then they quickly fall in price.
2. Aesthetics, much more graphical variety due to larger machine overhead.
(You can have both graphics and gameplay with PC)
3. Controls, I also have a Joystick and controller connected to my PC and they are all good for different things - K&M for FPS, controller for driving and stick for flying.
4. Mods, user generated content give PC games even more replayability (which is normally even bigger then consoles) with more content. (Like the 26hrs gameplay addon for Skyrim - free)
5. Peripherals, they are way cheaper for PC, a legitimate PS3 controller is $120, for that I can get a mouse and a keyboard, joystick and another gamepad.
User avatar #252 to #246 - fuckingtrolls (06/28/2014) [-]
wait, tell me if i'm mistaken
Did you just say a ps3 controller was $120?
#261 to #252 - fekillix (06/28/2014) [-]
I also asked them "how can I talk to you guys and others in game?"

answer: "get one of those clip on keyboards, it makes navigation and chatting soo easy!"

So I did that too back then, I spent $65 for the keyboard. Luckily it works on my PC too over bluetooth so I actually use it now while in bed gaming (same with the controller)

This was several years ago and after taking the "play with us" from all my previously-pesant friends I sunk all the money into what they told me to get.
User avatar #269 to #268 - fuckingtrolls (06/28/2014) [-]
this is the clip on thing you were talking about right?
#271 to #269 - fekillix (06/28/2014) [-]
Yes, it is actually pretty cool but a bitch for anything more then youtube searching and similar.
User avatar #265 to #264 - fuckingtrolls (06/28/2014) [-]
It has little usb thingy so you can use it with any device that has a usb port
#259 to #252 - fekillix (06/28/2014) [-]
That is the price when I bought one here in Norway, yes. (That was a few years ago though, but still)

I am still slightly enraged by the money I put into the console I have because my friends said "it is so much better, come play with us!". Now they are all on PC though. I have built 8 machines, 6 for my friends and picked components for three more.

Well I'm really sorry you got ripped off dude
#266 to #263 - fekillix (06/28/2014) [-]
No, that was normal price levels in Norway back then. Still is though, a PS4 controller now is $90 in a cheap store. Up to $120 in the more expensive places.
User avatar #267 to #266 - fuckingtrolls (06/28/2014) [-]
Norway is ****** up
#270 to #267 - fekillix (06/28/2014) [-]
Average income is $87K a year, so no. But it is still alot of money for a kid who just wants to play with his friends.

"PC Master Race" is half-serious, half-tounge-in-cheek kinda satire, though a few people take it seriously (they're retarded)
The cool thing about PC is how adaptable it is.
You can use it for netflix/tv
Steam sales keep games real cheap since PC has no licensing fees for publishers, if you play lots of games, you'll save money with a $1,200 gaming PC over a console
You don't have to pay for multiplayer or any dumb ****
Really, most people get a $500 prebuilt and a $400 console, when you could get a $900 self built PC and get way more out of it.

Who is that guy anyway? I always see him on the commercial and I don't know who they're trying to fool by implying he is actually playing titanfall.
