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.
