How To Build A Liquid-Cooled Mini Gaming PC For Under $1,000

If you go into your local technology store and look at the PC section, most if not all will be standard black towers. However, on the enthusiast scene, there’s a seismic shift going on with many people ditching their large tower cases and opting for shoebox-size ones.

FACT #1: I could spend between $800 to $1000 to BUILD a liquid-cooled mini gaming pc.
FACT #2: I could spend that same amount of money and buy a brand new next-gen console AND a brand new 42" 1080p led tv(both of which work right out of the box).
Just saying.

I post FACTS, you post an opinion. Disagree all you want, but you know I'm not lying.

Or you could save up and have the best of both worlds. The PC indie scene is truly incredible. PC has it's own exclusives and amazing graphics. A lot of control options. Use any gamepad or peripheral you want as there are literally hundreds of input options that work on PC.

Also, PC's are really easy to build if you spend more than ten minutes researching how to put them together.

The consoles have great exclusives. I like what the consoles offer in their more closed ecosystem. XBOX Live and Now PSN are great online experiences that give you unification that really helps in getting matches together with buddies.

They both have their advantages, even though I would rather part with any of my gaming consoles before my PC, I can and do enjoy both experiences for what they offer.

There are actually people who would go out and buy similar hardware to emulate this PC. They might even able to make a comparable or better one for even less.

In the end these people are the reason why hardware such as those in next gen consoles exists. While current gen consoles struggled with customized hardware, these PC gamers kept the development for X86 architecture, DDR3 and GDDR ram alive long enough for console gamers to enjoy when next gen arrive.

Deny it all you want but next gen won't even exist without PC gamers.

Rolling the Dice: Do Modern RPGs Miss the Point of Team-Based Play?

It seems it was long time ago. A bunch of friends spending hours on end playing RPG games, sitting around the table with the box of cold pizza. Excited about the story, listening to the Game Master, they were completely engaged in the worlds only visible to them and their imaginations.

The GM is the programmer, and in MMOs and co-ops, you can play with others. If you want to ONLY use your imagination for the visuals, read a book.

1) Hope they put it on disc this time.
2) Hope this is a positive for Neptune coming over as well.

Demons Souls5016d ago

If so, that's being developed & published by Idea Factory. Compile Heart has nothing to do with it (Thank God for that).

Godmars2905016d ago (Edited 5016d ago )

Thought Compile Heart was one of the companies lending characters.

Was also speaking in general as in regards to a US of Neptune. If these guys are offing a second game, NIS or Atlus, both of whom offer quirkier titles, will put that one out.

@kagon01:
My issue isn't - wholly - with the DL-only option, but the price. The first game should be $30. Maybe $40, and by that I mean $39.99. The only reason its $45 is the 360 disc version which has extras. Nevermind that by all rights its a PS2 game. Something that proabbly could have been done if the devs had the GOW2 engine or tools.

ClownBelt5016d ago

I approve of this god damn message.

Could have gotten my 60 bucks if they just put it on a disc.

Another exclusive damnn the ps3 keeps on rollin wit games awesome ;)

Jack-Pyro5016d ago

Is this a half decent SRPG, porn aside, cause if it is, i might just decide to go and buy it for the 360.

Anon73495016d ago

There's no porn just some sexual innuendos but that's it.

Also it is a great game by itself, maybe not graphically but everything else is top tier.

RedDevils5016d ago

so it had some kind of "top tier" porn story jk

ThanatosDMC5016d ago

Yup, it's a decent game. I just hate that a move has to go first before any attack options.
