    ...

    you know what i mean! DX and in order to install and utilize said GPU id need a new motherboard a new harddrive a new processor (to play the damn thing). the only thing on my pc thats gaming ready is probably my monitor. When i move out into the dorms hopefully this fall ill get a job and start building a gaming able pc. I probably wont use it to game outside of RTS's though since FPS's give me headaches. =\


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    2GB DDR2-667 $200
    8600GT $150
    Case $50
    PSU $75
    19" widescreen LCD monitor $175
    Keyboard and mouse $15
    5.1 Speakers $75
    Hard drive $100
    Optical drive $30

    ~$1200 for everything

    That will run Crysis at medium-max settings at the native resolution of the LCD, which is 1440x900, already higher than the PS3/360's 1280x720.

    PS3+HDTV (a crap one) $1300
    360+HDTV (a crap one as well) $1100
    But don't forget that you still have to get some decent speakers as well and other stuff like extra controllers and whatnot.

    Yeah Jyuu, 4X the price.

    $1200? Just over £600, I spent £670 on my PC originally, all I got was a AMD sempron 3000+, a GeForce 6600, 1GB of slow RAM, an 80GB HD and a 15" screen.

    AMD seprom 2800+ (I know, crappy)
    768 MB ram
    640 GB HDD (in total)
    18" monitor. (not that flat screen, my monitor is old, lol)
    radeon 9600

    = a bit under 500 euros.


    I'd have to upg my videocard (100-200 euros) and possibly more memory and/or new processor. (no idea how much those cost).

    Now the 360 costs around 400 euros..

    Uh, actually, looks like it would get pretty damn close with the prices and such.. :P

    But then again, I could play any 360 games without the need of upragading but with comps i'd need to upg videocard later on if I intend to play new games. :S



    Oh and on a site note, Jyuu, you're asking if SD spent less than 150$ on clothes? wow, how much do you use? I use total or 0 euros a year on clothes (parents dont buy either), got enough clothes for myself right now. <.<

    I'd rather spend that hard-earned money on music... obviously, you can tell what level my computer is at, but then again, the only computer game I've bought in the last three years is Sims 2, which I haven't played since the week I got it (before any expansions were released).

    Hm, you know, maybe if I didn't spend that money on music, I'd be able to buy some PC games to see exactly why I need a better computer.

    Well, 1 good reason to upragade a comp is so that you could run those games.

    It wouldnt feel nice to buy 50-70 $ games just to notice your comp's not good enough to run them. :/ *talks from experience*

    Currently I can play the games I got but they could be better, a lot.

    Oh yeah, dont worry DE, I havent bought a game for.. 4-5 years, guess we are on the same level. :P


    Ehm, back on topic.
    I like the 360 since it has gears of wars, halo 3 (dont know if it's any good but I kinda liked 1st and 2nd) and even oblivion (which my comp barely runs it [it could be a lot smoother ]), I know that wii got that motion thing and it's probably pretty awesome with the zelda game but honestly.. I never liked zelda.

    You guys really don't know how to choose parts when building a PC. =\
    Moreover Vista Ultimate costs less than $300.

    Oh yeah, I forgot that most people just stick to Dell, HP or Emachines.
