better frame rates than ps4, and streams in 1080p.
games that are sized up to 1080p look the same and run better than ps4.

Except no games on it support 1080p yet, and it's lt's a weaker system than the ps4.

Seriously, both of them have **** libraries right now, but the xbone is weaker, more expensive and there was that **** MS tried to pull to basically remove any rights you had in relation to purchased games.

Unless you are dumb you can build a computer today that will run all modern games on AT LEAST medium, but more likely than not high settings for under the price of an XBO or PS4.

There is no way a 500$ computer could run games as well as a console. You may be able to build a computer for that price that has the same specs as a console, but the computer would be slower because there are a lot more background processes that slow the computer down.

I hate to sound uneducated, but can I ask what a good computer would be? I've never really gone and checked out the specs on a computer when I've bought one, and I don't really know what to look for.    
   
I see people insulting each other while talking about various computer features and parts that I don't really get, so I've always felt a bit too embarrassed to ask.  All I really want is a crash course in how to figure out WHAT it is I want a computer to have and how to make sure what I'm getting what I want. I also have seen people talking about building a computer, and while that sounds interesting, I know nothing about that either, so I wouldn't even know where to start on something like that.

What makes a "good" computer is subjective. It all depends on what you're looking for. I'll assume you want your computer to be good for playing games and break down what specs you need to be looking for.

Processor: The basic unit of processor quality is its clock rate, usually measured in GHz, or billions of processes per second. Your processor does some hard number crunching in addition to overseeing all the programs on your PC. The higher the clock rate, the faster your computer will be overall. My processor gets around 3.6 GHz. Some get more, others get less, and it's usually a tradeoff with price. For a gaming PC, I wouldn't recommend anything under 3.0.

RAM: RAM acts as a "workspace" for your computer. Any program that's running keeps its information in RAM. The more RAM you have, the more programs you can run simultaneously without encountering slowdowns or crashes. It's measured in bytes (usually gigabytes). RAM also has a "clock rate" like a processor, but all you need to make sure with that spec is that it is compatible with your motherboard. I recommend at least 4 gigabytes.

GPU, or graphics card: Graphics cards are harder to pin down in terms of performance, but again, clock rate is key. Graphics cards usually also include some amount of RAM specifically for storing graphics information. Like clock rate, the higher the better. Here's a link to relative performance of some high-end gaming graphics cards: www.videocardbenchmark.net/high_end_gpus.html. I own an Nvidia GTX 480.

Motherboards: The motherboard is the backbone of the computer; a bunch of sockets to plug all the other components into. The biggest thing about motherboards is that they need to be compatible with all your other parts. If you buy a computer out of a box, you know the motherboard is compatible; if you're building your own, however, you need to find that out yourself.

Finally, www.newegg.com/ is your one-stop shop for anything you need to build your own computer.

If you're a complete newbie ant computer building, this video is a great place to start: www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPIXAtNGGCw Goes over all the components, what they do, and what you should look for in a way that isn't limited to 2000 characters. If you do choose to build, be aware that an increase in performance will also be met with an increase in price. My computer (just the stuff in the case) cost somewhere around $500 - a bit more expensive than going to Best Buy and picking one up in the box - and it's a relatively tame build performance-wise. You can easily splurge well up to a couple thousand if you want the absolute cutting edge of technology in your build.

On the other hand, if building just isn't for you, go online and do your own research. Don't trust me; I'm just a random guy on the internet. Use Google to figure out what some good specs for a gaming PC should be. Make sure to visit online stores like Amazon in addition to actual retail stores. There's a deal out there waiting to be made that fits your budget and gives you the performance you need.

It may work fine, that doesn't make it a good computer. Your point was that the xbone is faster. It's not faster than good PCs. No console is or likely ever will be again.

Well, that's kinda the point isn't it? I mean when people say PC they mean good PCs, but my laptop is a PC all the same. "PC gaming" is relative to what you're willing to pay for it.

If that's the point, who ever made that point probably shouldn't be around points, they'll probably get hurt.

You can't say "consoles are faster because i'm willing to spend more on a console than i am on a PC". It's been shown time and time again that shopping around you can easily get a PC that's faster than a console for cheaper, and that's not even taking into consideration that you could simply buy parts and upgrade your PC.

Seriously, did you think the point through at all? I mean, even if it cost a bit more than a console (and i do mean a bit, not a lot) it would kind of make up for itself through the games themselves being cheaper. I primarily play Mobas and MMOs on my PC, so i get a ton of value for money there, being that almost all mobas are free, and the sub MMO is a thing of the past outside of wow and final fantasy. Then there's steam sales...

With the amount of BS consoles throw at you with what you can and can't do, mandatory updates and lacklustre sales, there is no reason to get one outside of exclusives. Back when the x360 and ps3 were released, it would cost an ungodly amount of money to get a PC of such power. That's no longer the case, and likely never will be again. This isn't necessarily bad, it depends how console makers react. They basically have to pump out high quality exclusives often enough or cut the ******** and make a games console, not a media machine.

because you pay 500 dollars each for 2 worthwhile exclusives on the consoles, then buy games for either or at 50 dollars average, or PC for 30 dollars average. Wherin, if you decide to save the money that you spent on overpriced console games and two consoles, you could be completely covered in an amazing computer that will outlast and outperform the consoles, and have cheaper games.

You can buy a PS3 for 100$-200$ and an Xbox 360 for the same.
That's only new games, you can buy them used for 10$-30$

Games aren't cheaper for PC, there's just more games that are cheap. Indie games and such. Big name brands, like the ones that sell for console, are still 50$-60$.
Computers will outlast, and outperform consoles, yes. Unfortunately, that's if you upgrade them with 100$-300$ parts every few years. Consoles do their job perfectly for around 10.

So, you buy a PS4 on launch date for $400, like I did.
Sony will most likely release the PS5 in 2019 or 2020.
Consoles last for 6-8 years, and are still able to play the latest games.

Last i checked, the 360 and the ps3 have been running below the Low Settings since around Crysis 2 (early 2011). Additionally, the current gen consoles are nowhere near the relative performance of the previous gen. The 360 was 6-7 months ahead of its time while the ps4 and 360 is already struggling on games like BF4.

My current build:
AMD Phenom II X4 970 BE @ 3.5GHz
Gigabyte GTX 670 2GB
8GB of DDR3 Kingston RAM at 1600MHz
2TB Western Digital Caviar Black HDD
Seasonic X750 Gold 750W PSU

The CPU is a little outdated (It's still an amazing chip considering how old it is), so it adds a slight bottleneck to the 670. Most things run at 60FPS no problem, though.

The biggest difference for me is the fact that new games cost me 70 dollars for a console and pc games around 45-50 (700 Swedish Crowns vs 430 Swedish Crowns).

In the long run, buying a PC for around 500-700 dollars then paying 45 bucks per game is a lot cheaper than a console for 400-500 then games for 70 a piece.
Also, almost every game is prettier on a PC anyway and unlike the consoles, PC's can run games at higher than 30 fps.

i don't want to sound like a PC elitist but guys you are getting ****** with the new consoles and you act like it's the ******* best thing ever
in my opinion theres just not good enough things to spend 500 dolars for basically a restricted pc with no chance of playing old games from old consoles is a bad investment

Not to be a buzzkill... But most people have a computer right? And most people buy them pre-made from hifi stores. What did your computer cost you?

All up mine cost me $800 for a gaming pc that runs everything on at least high (which is still higher than ps4 and xbox one). Plus I have the ability to easily mod games and even pirate them for free to pre-test them in case I don't like it.

tl;dr gaming pc's are unknowingly affordable for most people

I would say that a PC is actually cheaper in the long run but the initial starting payment is more expensive.

Whereas consoles are released every few years to upgrade at a fairly high price with probably no backwards compatibility depending on stuff (ps2 was knocked off the ps3 due to it "damaging the blu-ray laser" or something).
With a pc you only have to buy a new GFX card and a CPU that would match your price and the range of quality you want that would be a bit cheaper than a console (that will last a bit less than a console) or about the same price as a console (That will last a little longer than the average console lifespan.)

I'm pretty sure backwards compatibility was removed mainly to lower the price. My 60 GB PS3 that I got at launch had full backwards compatibility with PS2 and PS1 games, but the console cost me $500. They brought out the cheaper PS3's a few years later and the only difference besides appearance was the lack of backwards compatibility.

Backwards compatibility was removed because it is too difficult to emulate the Cell processor and much too expensive to integrate one into the circuit. So, not really to just lower the price, but to avoid marketing a $1000 console. Same for the XBO.
To be fair, the consoles could play Xbox, PSX and PS2 games with barely any CPU strain, but I guess we can't have nice thing, can we?

I appreciate the clarification on the technical aspect, but I don't understand how that makes it not about lowering the price. Obviously the tech is there, but it's just too expensive to be viable when consumers want the console to cost $300.
