    Honestly you can build a gaming PC that rivals the new consoles with specs far less costly than those. Also, I'd take ATis GPU over the GTX 760. If we're talking the GTX 770 that's a different story.

    A few things I would've done differently: -CPU, the 4690K costs $10 more and overclocks significantly better than the 4670K -video card, an R9 280 will give you 5-10% better performance and costs less than the GTX 760 -SSD, the budget build alternative could've been a 64GB drive used for caching Other than that, very sound advice

    Also, either the author of the article doesn't know his graphics cards (I'm pretty sure that's the case, which is perfectly fine.) or he's an Nvidia fanboy, because the GTX 750 is most definitely not faster than the R7 265, that card is somewhere in between the performance of a 750 Ti and 760, although it's much closer to the 750 Ti. Here's some charts to prove it: http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/2014-vga-charts/compare,3598.html?prod%5B6788%5D=on&prod%5B6943%5D=on&prod%5B6799%5D=on&prod%5B6800%5D=on

    Agreed. Also, if you shop around you can get an R270 for $180, which is the best bang for your buck. Can play almost anything on Ultra with multisampling and still get 60+ FPS.

    All the specs on gaming PCs are good here but you don't need to spend that much on a gaming pc as many have proven. You just need at least an i5 or AMD equivalent. For video 2gb nvdia gtx 660 or higher or AMD Radeon equivalent but you need at least a 2tb hd(I already went over 1tb of space used for games) and a small ssd for caching. Ram ddr3 6 or 8 gb and a sound card only if you really want to have mind blowing sound but if you are happy with good sound then save the money. You do not need liquid cooling unless you are planning to way overclock your cpu but it isn't really needed. with that you should be able to run about any game in high specs.A case and motherboard can be bought for under $150 but I agree with power supply. Now just because someone buys/builds a gaming PC doesn't mean they abandoned console gaming so those of you who are obsessed with console gaming only don't push your fears on the rest of us gamers who love playing games on any platform that has good games.

    Honestly, the 750ti Ftw is a better buy then that 760. It's 160$ and you can only get it off Newegg. Who doesn't love Newegg.

    I have some opinions on how to better save when building a gaming PC, but Gamesradar seems to think my comments are spam so I guess I will have to keep my opinion to myself.

    Sorry, our comments system is a little... janky (but we're fixing it!). I'd definitely love to hear your thoughts!

    --or you could buy 2 ps4s and 2 games --and --if you already have 2 tvs --you can play MP side by side in your house
  • KaoticKyle - July 9, 2014 10:45 p.m.

    Who plays MP side by side in their house anymore? That's so.....archaic.....

    Effing comment system...this wasn't even supposed to be a reply. :/
  • LoboMau - July 10, 2014 2:55 a.m.

    I do and it's not archaic. It's how you have the most fun out of it.

    Speaking as a PC gamer who jumped platform ship with the onset of the current generation, I have to say the time to take the plunge is NOW. PC gaming is back in full swing and honest to god, any arguments about console availability dissolve in the face of Steam/GOG/GMG/GG/half-dozen other discount site sales. I've made more than enough money back through savings on software than I would have by buying a PS3/XBO. Plus, they all run at 1080p 60+fps. Which matters when you see it. :)

    Playing on the PC always been a cheaper option. You fork a little extra for the hardware, but each game is cheaper. Always has been.
  • LoboMau - July 10, 2014 2:58 a.m.

    Granted that if one only buys a couple of games per year it doesn't repay the initial investment. But, if you buy a lot of games, it does make a difference and ends being the cheapest option as I said.

    And not to mention building a PC these days is pure plug 'n play. Slot components into the motherboard and it all works itself out, beautifully simple.
