Pro Gaming

With games right around the corner this Fall, consoles aren’t going to be your best bet for the greatest experience. A flaw people believe is that consoles are better than PC’s which is a massive opinion and untrue depending on your PC. Say you have an office computer, then obviously a console is more ideal and they better are budget wise for gaming. If you had the knowledge of good PC’s, you could make a $500 dollar PC that would out do any console.

Things you should take into consideration are that prices for parts always change so get them when they’re the cheapest. For a PC build though out it’s your choice. The key components though that a PC is unable to survive with are, a graphics card, processor, mother board, power supply, RAM, hard drive, finally the case of the computer to keep all the parts contained. Optionally you could buy a new keyboard and mouse if you have none to spare, and you could get speakers or headphones.

An 8th grader at Garner named Evan Fowler recommends that “Building a PC should be your first option because, it can save you more money than just buying a PC, and it’s a good learning experience.

Daniel Denis, a fellow 8th grader, believes that, “Building a PC is better in the long run because you get to choose what you want with your computer if they’re compatible parts.”

Of course if you don’t want to build because it’s too difficult, or you’re just lazy, you can buy a gaming PC at Cyberpower PC that also allows you to customize how you want it and when you want it delivered for a pricier budget. If you just happened to have more than $1000 then you could get an Alienware PC even though they aren’t the best idea due to a very low quality graphics card. Your best Alienware option is a laptop they won the title of having the best gaming laptops. The true reward for getting a very pricier computer is that you get many more games, Betas, Alphas, and other Indie games.

In the long run for a low budget, get a console. If you are looking for a better experience and better graphics, then a PC should be ideal.

Gaming Season is Here

Most likely, you are a guy or girl that likes to play video games. The only problem this year is that you have to decide whether or not you should get the PS4 or Xbox One. These consoles can basically be purchased at any type of family store (Wal-Mart, Target, and GameStop). The console parts are important in considering which a better buy is.

The PS4 and Xbox One both have the same brand of processers (CPU) but different models of them, making them much more different. In a test, they compared the exact parts with each other making the PS4 blow the Xbox away.

Another important thing to consider is the Graphics Card (GPU); in this case the PS4 beats it again having 2x the graphics power of the Xbox One.

One big down side for the PS4, is that the release date is still unknown, while the Xbox One comes out November 22, 2013.

While the technological differences aren’t that different, they are still entirely different brands. One thing though that makes the Xbox One a little bit more worth buying is that unlike the PS4, you get Xbox exclusives such as Halo 5 (name is unofficial), Forza Motorsports 5, Titan Fall, and some others. While that is in mind, you still are able to get all of this year and next year’s big blockbuster games such as Elder Scrolls Online, Battlefield 4, and others.

In all though, PS4 wins due to it performing much better than the XBOX one and it is $100 less in price.
