You're going to need to upgrade and the intial costs can be really high if you want to play at meme setting and meme framerate.

A console is a single purchase that will last you whole generation.

As for games if we exclude piracy new games cost roughly the same but on consoles you have the option to trade and sell wich lowers the costs.

PC isn't cheaper and you know it. It's a platform for enthusiasts willing to put some money into their hobby.

Switching between generations add to the unless you want to keep the older hardware around, Paid online, if you're into that sort of thing and steam sales can go way below $20 dollars. Meanwhile, buying the highest end graphics card can get you through two or so generations without the expense of software incompatibility of older games

Let's look at the "le pc gaming is cheaper xD" meme.

We're going to assume that you are an average dude. You have a TV in your appartment and have a laptop for general computing purpose and porn. You want to play video games, the normal way to go would be grabbing a PS4 however ebin redditors are trying to meme you into building a PC dedicated to video games. You consider the option.

You need:

PC equiped with an i5 coupled to a 980 - $950
Monitor - $200
Keyboard + Mouse - $50
Set of speakers - $30
Gaming chair - $60

You build your tower, install steam and are greated by an aweful community, every one only ever plays assfaggots and counter strike. You are butthurt 24/7 and are always wondering whenever a game will or will not come to your PC.

Meanwhile, Matt, your friend, got a PS4 for $300. He is enjoying video games and has the certainty that every relevant game will come to his system. You see him, go to 4chan /v/ and post shit like>>323361018.

Well, you are going to need a comfy chair if you are going to spend 5 hours sitting at your desk. I challenge you to use pic related for even one week. It's seriously something you have to consider buying when you build a PC.

Up front costs, retard. Every generation switch only costs the graphics card. You rarely need to upgrade the other components. Don't forget the utility value if you do work on it. Also, the community argument is a moot point considering that shit communities can exist everywhere.

Anything with "gaming" in its name is more expensive than some equally non "gaming" product.
You don't need $500 headphones, but even a portapro sounds better than a $150 headset
You can quicksave, but you better not cry about loss of progress being to tough or ever refer to someone as "casual".
Steam is basically valve's attempt at consolizing the PC, so anyone shitting on consoles while praising steam is a huge idiot.
>>
>>323362347
Matt also owns a computer, although probably a weaker one, and he has to buy games for a stupid price, while Steam offers relatively new games for prices unseen on consoles.

You usually have to upgrade with every new generation and sometimes in between if you fell for the $160 cards meme. You boast about resolution and framerate but these things aren't free, performance come with costs. If you want to play games at 30fps low in sub console settings then what's the point of owning a PC?

The PS3 lasted you for 8 years. Show me that 2006 PC capable of running GTA V in 1080p 60fps.

A midrange card can get you [email protected] with games within the generation you bought it. The highest end, while costing you as much as a console, can get you triple digits during that generation, 60+ for games a generation later and one more gen if you can tolerate 30fps.

Not this shit again. I have a 760 and it's fucking shit, In newer releases I can forget about 60fps 1080p. It doesn't even have 1 year and I already have to upgrade.

The fucking 980, a $600 card already struggles on newer releases if you push the graphical options to the max. Performance comes with costs, that's a fact. No matter of reddit pc master race bullshit you swallow will change that.

Some graphical settings should be viewed like this: It's amazing you have the option to control the setting, but know that it's not necessarily meant to be thought of like "if I just have the right pc, I can put it all on max". You can basically always force a gpu to its knees one way or another. But that doesn't mean it's a desirable setting.

A PS4 + generic laptop costs around $700. You can easily build a PC that well outperforms both in their areas of expertise for around the same cost, without having to pay for more expensive games, monthly online fees, etc.

>>323366351

You can play games on consoles for cheaper than PC if you are a smart consumer.

That's not entirely accurate, you pay for a service that includes online among other things. Besides, you are free to not subscribe, there aren't that many games worth playing online.

Consoles are holding games hostage and it's an awful practice for the industry and for consumers.

PC gaming is literally the master race because it wants to unify everyone instead of segregating.

depends on what you want it to do. a 970, even OC'd at an offset of almost 200Mhz, can't get consistent 60fps in TW3 on Ultra-minus hairworks.

shit; I couldn't get consistent 60fps even in TW2. Ubersampling was also a no-go, just like Hairworks. even the 2xTitan-X build NVIDIA had for their tweak/performance guide shit itself on Hairworks.


either TW3 is poorly optimized (doubtful), or variable sync refresh rates are going to become absolutely needed as time goes on because 60fps is just not feasible without gimpling quality.

shame G-sync adds a nice $400 to the cost of a screen right now.

League of Legends. The game is THE most casual game I ever played. Riot used shady methods and huge advertising campaigns to make it popular. They knew who would fall for this kind of shit. Generation facebook. And you know what they want? Cheap games, where you can show how unique you are (skins) and that you are such a progamer because you got some grind points and a mastery tree. At the same time Facebook and Youtube changed into a marketing service. They both just exist to sell products and have shit on their basic service.

After the huge success League of Legends was Riot pushed the "it's an E-Sports, E-Sports are real sports!!!" shit over and over. I mean why wouldn't you a fat virgin that is a total loser not want to show that you actually have a function in this world? Own3d.tv and Twitch.tv appeared and they changed the core audience of the gaming industry to some facebook farmville playing faggots. Minecraft,Candycrush, just look what happened after 2010. Not only 4chan got worse but the whole internet.
Just look how crazy the GPU prices went up. 2006 I could get the top line GPU for around 300$ and now? 1000$$$$$$$$ Gaming chairs, headset all the kind of shit is bought by some teenagers wanting to fit in.

Because that's the only thing that makes sense. There is no reason for the graphics card to be bottlenecking when the game hardly reaches 2Gb mem usage or 100% utilization.

Besides, there are some reports I've read that i5s ARE bottlenecking in TW3 when i7s aren't.

I don't know what the reason for it is, but it doesn't make any sense that some guy with an i7 low haswell model is getting 60+fps, and I'm struggling to get 60 when my card is OC'd higher.

Theres no real reason for them to, they're still Dx11 compatible and even at that so are the 500 series GPU's and those haven't been abandoned yet and if the 500's haven't been abandoned that means the 400's aren't either since they use the same drivers

Serious doubt. The vast majority of busses run at ~100Mhz, which is what mine is running at.

Hugeness and amount of people shouldn't really have that much of an impact on a GPU from a compute standpoint. Large areas, textures, and models generally just mean more VRAM usage; it shouldn't be dropping frames so often or not running at 60fps at all unless something else is an issue.

Regardless, it's pretty sad that I'm dropping frames at all with a 970 OC'd fairly high. I guess this is how NVIDIA pushes G-Sync, or 980s and up.

>get 16 gigs of ram, poorfag
Web browsers become unstable when RAM usage is extremely high (1.5-2+ GB for Firefox and Chrome). It isn't an issue that can be solved by just adding more RAM.

>>323381216
you can literally just download more ram if you start running out after 2GB m8 stop spreading disinfo

>>323380101
This is so fucking true.
Literally every irl casulcuck friend that I have that enforces the "mustard" meme has a library like this.

Except they dont play csgo, they play fucking COD black ops.

You have to do "Open Containing Folder" to open a window to where the file is. The catch is that if the torrent is downloaded with a folder, you have to right click on the file itself and not the root of the containing folder, otherwise it would just open to the outside of the folder.

I have more respect for COD players than CSGO players

What's the problem?
>>playing a shooter with autoaim
He's a casual. Autoaim is still better than RNG aim like CSGO.
>>Playing a shooter with autoaim using an xbox controller on pc.
This is pretty dumb.

These two are the only ones that reek of autism.

Face it, you are not master race of anything. You are a Slav.

>uses "gaming" anything
It's really hard in this day and age to NOT get something labeled for gaming. I went out and got a sound card, only to realize it's a "gaming" sound card. My motherboard also has a shitty "gaming" logo. It's hardly avoidable at this point.

Just get the platform where all your real friends are at. Fun for everyone. I have way more friends on ps4, so I got a ps4. I have another group of friends on PC, so I got a gaming PC, even though I play on the ps4 more.

How can they play something that they literally, actually, do NOT have?
>>
>>323359415
PC became a console. The "PC Master Race" thing means nothing to people other than a label, to feel superior to others. The average person wants to prove themselves better to their peers, and luckily PC happened to have a LOT of console games, most of which being titles that people care about, so PC is purely a bragging right's console.
