For 750 youll be part of no master race bud, maybe the lower castes thats not allowed to look the master race in the eye.  

You could Get a pro and probably some 20 awesome games.  



Honestly though if you have a PS4pro or a 4k HDR TV, get one or the other instead.

Kinda hard to beat the bang for buck, a PS4pro gets you.

On other hand if you already have a PS4.... its not as tempting since you can already play those games.

In which case, something like a pc with a Intel i5-7500k + amd 480 graphics card, should be doable for that price.



yeah $750 is a little light.... A GTX1080 alone will run you $500+.



Lol for whoever said 750 isnt doable.

You do not need a GTX 1080 to run games well. I am pretty sure you can create a build with a GTX 1060 for around 750. It is doable, and I am pretty sure a 1060 will destroy any console we have.

Which is exactly why it has no place in his build, which is fine. Even graphics cards worse than that have pretty good performance.



A good place to start:

And it will certainly perform better than a ps4 pro in most games. We don't really know Scorpio so idk about that. What I do recommend however is to spend $150 more on a 1070 instead or wait a couple of months until AMD's Ryzen 5 CPUs come out which may lower the cpu cost more. Also add like $20 more for Windows 10 from Kinguin.

Does that budget include buying an OS or you're already covered in that regard? And, are you up to overclock or not?

Also, AMD will launch the 4 & 6 core versions of their Ryzen processors on April 11th, and rumors say that their new 5xx series (which are mostly rebrands with higher clocks and lower power consumption) will also launch that month, so if you can wait a little you could something better for the same money.

But, if you want to buy it now, your best GPU options are either an RX 480 8GB or a GTX 1060 6GB. Don't waste your money on models with less memory.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

While Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo do the marketing to hype up the consoles (They do have fantastic games btw) there is one device that doesn't need hyping to sell AAA games and that is the PC. Steam itself has over 14,000 games, other websites like EA account for another couple thousand, and that doesn't include emulations of console games. So that means there are that many more AAA titles on the PC then the competition. Also platforms like PSNow and EA Access are allowing PC users to experience more titles.

Price wise PC wins again. My Steam cataloge includes hundreds of games (sadly I haven't played 5% of them). That is because the price is so damn cheap to buy the games, once you get past the PC cost everything diminishes. Even brand new titles such as Wildlands can be found for $40 easily and if you do a little more digging sometimes at $30.

Controls have more options. You can use a PC mouse with keyboard, Xbox 360 controller, Xbox One controller, PS4 controller, various VR headsets, and even cheap off brands. Very versatile, can use almost anything.

Multimedia is made for PC. The only reason consoles now do extra stuff such as Netflix and Hulu is because the PC made it popular. All of this has been done on a PC years before consoles.

The only issue with PC is the hassle which rarely comes with consoles. Sometimes you have to upgrade something, sometimes your computer is too new for a certain game, sometimes a controller doesn't work with a game, sometimes people use mods online, and sometimes it's more than just pushing a power switch and playing.

I'm happy I bought a powerful PC, but I come to find myself never using it for gaming anymore. I use it as a multimedia device along with my Smart TV. Everyone is different.
Edit: You can make a decent gaming PC that will run new games on normal setting for around $600. Use the rest to get a couple of games.
