XFX 7970 for £190 I would snap that up for a Xfire if i had the money and import it.

People say PC building is expensive when really you could build a better-than-next-gen-console rig for around £400-£500 and not pay for online services and pay around 40% less for most games.

AMD HD 7970 ($280)

AMD FX-6350 Vishera CPU (6 core) ($120)

ASUS M5A78L ($60)

8gig ram ($40)

Cooler Master Elite 430 ($45)

500gig HDD ($45)

Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 500w ($40)

Linux/SteamOS (FREE)

$630 or £400 -

Not bad for a machine that will max most games out.No online fees and discounted games. Fully backwards compatible, 1000's of FREE indie games and FREE mods to make your game last just that bit longer.

Just my 2pence on the matter.

I agree. AMD gpu/cpu makes PC so inexpensive. I have a $500 PC (AMD) and i can play most games on the highest settings.

But i still wanna buy a PS4, I don't wanna mis the great exclusives on the PS4. their first party games are one of my favorites :D

PC-PS4 all the way!

Yeah. I started out with consoles in the 90's and was mainly into buying Sony consoles (PS1, PS2, and PS3 and PSP, no regrets) and Nintendo's portables (multiple GBA's and the NDS) and I love many of the games I got for these platforms. But today, I'm hard pressed to be hyped about the new consoles. Outside of KZ: SF and a few games on the Vita, there's no real incentive for me to buy them right now.

I've been PC gaming for many years now, and it's nowhere near as expensive as people make it out to be. Sure, it used to be really expensive, but nowadays both AMD and Nvidia make GPU's that are cheap enough to let you play modern games at 1080p with high framerates and most of the sliders turned up.

No online fees, no BS. The only thing I don't like is the DRM (which Steam itself basically is, same with Origin, etc.) but oh well. And if you build a "gaming" PC, that PC can do pretty much anything else as well. It feels awesome to just buy your own parts and slap them in and then fine-tune them for the performance you want.

That FX-6350 for just $120 is a steal, too.

I got too excited. I thought it said 27" monitor for $120. Already had my wallet out. :-(

LOL i know. a 27" monitor with 2ms response time for $120/£75 would of made my house look like Fort Knox security room.

Haha ... once drawed in I thought, "Why did the title lie?" Then it was sadly apparent to me that I just cannot read. :(
