Affordable gaming PC's you could build to compete with next gen consoles
Over the last couple weeks I've focused on videos covering the latest console releases, their reviews and comparisons among each other. Now as a pc gamer, I've been intrigued as to how I could actually put together a similarly spec'd and priced system and perhaps convince some friends out there who are still contemplating what to get in the next few months. This is for you guys! As I mentioned before in a post I did a while back, about how these new consoles and PCs now share the same architecture, so it'll certainly be easier to develop and port games. With SteamOS just around the corner, the potential will be even greater. I can't wait for CES 2014 this coming January for more information! So let's get right to it, time to take a look at what gaming pc's can offer shall we?
