actually you can get a quality HDTV for around under $500..still cheaper than the 8k :)
PC gamer that still uses SDTV.. tsk tsk
Yeah and you can make a PC for about as cheap that will run Crysis better than what it cost you to buy your HDTV and your console.
I don't watch TVs and I don't give a shit about graphics so why would I blow money on something so useless?
Yet another PC myth.
PS3 = 399 bucks
Intel DX58SO Motherboard = $240
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 = $150
Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 = $150
Corsair XMS2 Xtreme Performance 4GB PC2-6400 DDR2 DIMM = $50
Cooler Master HAF 932 Black Full Tower = $150
Samsung Spinpoint F1 1TB Hard Drive = $100
Antec P/S 500W ATX12V 2.01 PS/2 SIZE DUAL 12V OUTPUTS = $50
Logitech Cordless Desktop EX 100 Keyboard Mouse Combo = $30
LG Electronics GGW-H20L Black Dual Layer BD-RE Writer/HD DVD-ROM = $230
= 1150 bucks
Whoa now I fully outperform a PS3 for just nearly thrice the price, awesome!
First your processor and memory do not fit in the motherboard you chose (it takes core i7 processors and DDR3 memory, you chose Core 2 Duo and DDR2 memory), second you just chose whatever expensive parts you could find and slapped them together then declared it more expensive but conveniently forgot that:
1. He said PS3+HDTV
2. it only has to run Crysis better than a PS3 would, so running it at 1280x720 is enough as most PS3 games run at a lower resolution than that (fake HD).
Also you slapped in a Blu-Ray writer (which the PS3 hasn't got, only a player) when we are talking about games graphical quality, not attending media functions here.
I think is noticeable I haven't add a monitor to PC as well. Plus I got the cheapest I could find, or you would prefer a Logitech G15 keyboard for $50? Yes, I missed the processor thing: however a Core i7 is at least 100 bucks more expensive, what does not add nothing to your point then ^^
About the blu-ray thing, I guess is also noticeable I said 'fully outperform PS3'. But if it pleases you, exchange that for a Lite-On DH-4O1S-08 Black Blu-ray Reader which is at least $80.
If you are gonna add a monitor then add a hdtv as more people upgrading their rig will already have a monitor than people upgrading to HD will have a HDTV.
It doesn't add much to your rig if you can't use its CPU. You could have just cosen a $100 P45 mobo as the point here is not to buy the most expensive rig, just one more powerful than PS3.
As for the blu-ray, you may have said 'fully outperform PS3'
I just want to point out that I am not saying you are wrong, I don't know either way, though with falling PC hardware prices and Sony's problems cutting the PS3's price it will be true soon enough, but you certainly went about trying to disprove it in the most biased way possible.
