Ok, So there is always this talk about console killer builds but I just never see any done correctly, I hardly see people talk about the OS and whenever I do it's always SteamOS or Linux... Now why would I want to buy a Gaming Desktop machine and only play bloody games on it? Why do I have to get used to the Ubuntu Interface? Whatever the case, I'd like to see if anyone can beat a console properly...
I'm splitting this into 2 categories, New and Preowned... The Pre-owned console is checked by professionals, so it has the upper hand on used parts from ebay in terms of quality assurance. In the New category you cannot, use pre owned parts but if you want you can post cheaper alternative pre owned parts that could give equivalent or better performance for the same price. In pre-owned you can throw out anything as long as it meets the Rules..
Categories: (Prices in AUD) New: $478.00 Console, https://ebgames.com.au/xbox-one-800698-500GB-Xbox-One-Console--2-Games-Xbox-One Pre-owned: $368.00, https://ebgames.com.au/xbox-one-211991-500GB-Xbox-One-Standalone-International-Console-Refurbished-by-EB-Games-preowned-Xbox-One
Beat these in price and performance on cross platform games within the rules..
Rules: - Must match/beat console performance in cross titled games. - All Costs must be below the catagory's price, including shipping. (Just convert from your own currency to AUD) - Must include, mouse, Keyboard and windows license.
Bonus Points (Not required) - for Monitor, Microphone, extra games. (The New console comes with 2, can you beat that?) - for the least effort to build this PC, less parts the better, pre-built even better...
Well, if you can be bothered to have a go, do it! This is all about comparing specifically what the console gives you, to what a PC would give you, and the time it takes to get one. So far no one has been able to beat this from what I've seen whether that was from me not looking far enough into this but. PC's do take the effort and knowledge to build and maintain and Consoles have that "Assurance" that you shouldn't need to **** around with it for it to work. Even if someone meets the requirements there is still the effort of putting that PC together, which I'm sure anyone reading this would be completely fine with, might even ask to do it. But a casual Console gamer wouldn't like to put the effort into it when they are already out doing other stuff, like their hobbies and not ours.
