You could build a gaming PC that won't break the wallet. If you can afford a console, its accessories, games, etc, you can afford a gaming PC. Many
people think you need to buy the most expensive gear to have a proper gaming PC which is not at all the case.
I wasn’t thinking VR but you are correct. And a PNY gtx 1050 TI is going to game as well as an xboxone. Not the one X though. I almost got a 1080
but decided against it because in two years something on par will be available for cheaper. But that is just my take.
I really wouldn’t go cheap. My Xbox one looks like crap now and it’s by far hit it’s limitations.
If you want to future proof you need at least a 1070. Video games are just getting more and more demanding each.
“But my 1050 can max out fallout 4 and Farcry3!”
Yea uh no one cares about games years ago. Try running a 1050 on ultra on a game from this month. I doubt you’re going to clear 30fps. Guaranteed
that you’re not going to come close to running high for the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2.
Going cheap is just going to cost you in the long run. Want something future proofed? You’re going to be paying $1200
I can hear them now too... “but I built my computer for $600 and I can play a three year old game just fine!”
