Mouse/keyboard for FPS games on the 360 at $179? Very tough choice, for me being a PC shooter type.

I guess for PC gamers that are used to spend $200 on RAM every quarter, it is an easy choice to fork over the money. For me, it is an easier choice, I'm keeping my money at $180 for games for the rest of the year (or maybe part of the year).

That price is insane! Don't forget to add the cost of a nice keyboard and mice...

lol, RAM doesn't cost $200. 4GB is like $40.

If PC gamers want ram they wont take some cheap ram... most likely they will even take ddr3, buy heatsinks for it, and evrything...

TheIneffableBob3181d ago

$40 for quality RAM from name brands like G.Skill and OCZ. Good RAM is only needed if you plan on doing some overclocking and you won't see much of a difference between DDR2-800 and DDR2-1066 speeds in real-world applications. DDR3 is somewhat expensive compared to DDR2, but prices are rapidly declining as fabs begin to phase out DDR2. Also, people don't usually "customize" their RAM. Most just use the heatsinks that come with the DIMM.

Leave the PC Gaming comments to those who have a clue what they're talking about.

What makes you think that I know nothing about PC Gaming? Mister self proclaimed expert!

For those others that misinterpreted my comment, I was exaggerating and talking about prices over time. It wasn't too long ago, maybe 18 months, that quality RAM cost $200 and more for 4GB. Many gamers buy the latest and greatest. Many of them don't mind the price tag as long as it gives them the biggest epeen.
