Re: Games and all things related
That graphics card I gave to James I used to run games like Darksiders and Borderlands on, and even after I got a new one I didn't have to go to the top end to get good results, I bought a graphics card for about £60 and can run most of my games on pretty high settings.
The PC I have now I bought for about £600 back in 2009 and it still runs amazingly well.
When you keep in mind the price of the games you can get on PC these days, the sheer amount of stuff you can do on it that you can't on consoles, the usual minimal cost of repair or upgrade compared to the price of a console, attachments (granted you also have to get some for the PC, a monitor comes to mind), price of new games, the actual hardware you get for the price, the repair costs sometimes costing as much as a new bloody console (gone through this before myself), there's just no doubt that even cost wise a PC is a lot better.
The next gen consoles will most likely do what my 2009 PC does but with a few gimmicks to help polish the turd.
Though I still want a PS Vita.
