I saw this on Toms Hardware and figured I'd post it here. This is pretty much a PC that will rival consoles in terms of gaming capability. Its more powerful than the PS4 and X1, but it needs the extra power to compute all the extras that come with running a PC.
If you are a gamer and want best bang for your buck, now is the time to buy a console. 2-3 years later as these console age and PCs get more powerful and cheaper, story will be different.
This fall PS4 and X1 will come with a lot of extras like controllers, bluray, Kinect 2.0...and are cheaper than this PC to begin with. They will provide amazing gaming value...
