After cashing my paychecks, filling up the gas tank, taking a bit out for the wallet over the next seven days + the $250 I have to Amazon, I have about $1200 to play with.



Working on getting another job or two as well. Probably going to wait until the middle of May/end of May to get this sh*t though because of school.


might as well wait on the gtx 780 or atleast I am. got a price point of 1,500 to spend on a gaming pc. going to use my 46 inch lcd tv for a monitor. been doing my research and came across some good sites I will share. I was going to do a titan but I believe its overkill ust to run metro and battlefield 4 at ultra. Going to just wait on the GTX 780 purchase that with components in the pc that would be able to handle if I drop a second GTX 780. below are some good links.

I am probably waiting until at least the middle of May. I might order a few pieces like the case or something, but school doesn't end until May 10, then I probably have a few things to finish until the 16th.

Even if I wait two weeks, that's the end of May already.

see thats the hypocrisy I find in most of u pc gamers

yall shyt on consoles for their multiplats having inferior graphics but praise those
super nintendo looking games like diablo,hotline miami,league of legends,world of witchcraft ect. as if those games are anything special to look @
I sh*t on consoles for incredibly sh*t performance.

And super nintendo actually had great 16 bit art. The ascetics were good. Also, you are comparing 2013 games to 1990 games. I have said this time and time again as do most PC gamers. I care about performance first. Gameplay second. Story/Characters third. Graphics 4th.

Performance can absolutely ruin a game for me and story/characters mean nothing if your game is completely broken. I don't care if your game is n64 looking or crysis 3 looking.

Bioshock at a solid 60 fps with no slow downs and v-sync on?


Sometimes I wonder how i put up with 30 fps console games for so long...



Funny story:


My boy has an alienware laptop from a few years ago.. he was showing me Bioshock (he has to run it at 720p) but he put it on 1080p and it was playing at 30fps (this was before i hooked my pc up).

My exact words were "damn that looks good to me" and he was like turn your machine on



When I did


I cannot... and will not be doing any multiplatform gaming on a console again this gen (and probably next gen for that matter)

The first step is acceptance. Now you just need to suit up and spend some green.

Honestly, I have no problems switching between console and PC games. My computer can handle Battlefield 3 on Ultra at close to 60 FPS, but I still play the 360 version quite often. I just don't get that same "PC gaming ruined consoles for me" feeling other PC gamers seem to have. The transition will be even more seamless next gen. I just don't understand some of you PC evangelists. I love PC gaming but consoles still have their worth.

I don't think anyone in here is saying that they're worthless, just inferior. Consoles have a lot of worth, most people's friends are on a console, consoles have better RPGs and f!ghting games and when you put a game in on a console you know it's going to run.

im only agreeing with u because of 64 players, u need as many players as possible for
those big a.ss maps so u dont have to worry about running around for 6 minutes trying to
find someone


but as far as graphics,fps and all that other bullshyt yall pc gamers talk...I couldnt

You can save those countless 60 bucks wasted on purchases by updating your hardware, download the game(s), and enjoy.

I fu*k with PC and PS3, but I spend most time on 90s games. So the issue is less of hardware and more of quality games for me.
At the end of the day most people are going to spend more console gaming then you will PC gaming if you play sh*t regularly.
