Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox One X PC Build: Can you do it for $500?

Wait for the RX Vega release. The price of the GPU should drop quite significantly.

400$ is cheaper? The console alone cost as much, and it wont even run better because your old CPU will bottleneck your graphicscard which is pretty wasetfull.

I would much rather buy a new XBox One for 100$ more, getting also a 4K bluray player and saving some hardrive space on my PC for porn etc.

Last time I checked $400 is cheaper than $500. And for that saved $100 you can get a 3TB drive for all your porn.

Any regular mainstream CPU from 2013 outperforms the X1 CPU by miles. CPUs haven't been bottlenecking PCs since 2010.

It wont outperform the X1Xs CPU, yes CPUs can bottleneck your expensive graphicscard. 100€ wont be getting you a 4K bluray player, i much ratehr have a complete new device for 100 bucks.

You probably don't need an optical drive for gaming, since pretty much every modern game is available digitally on PC. So that's -$43.

And if you already have a PC, you probably already have storage, a case, and an OS you can use on your new one. That's an additional -$50, -$34, -$32.

$652 - $159 = $493.

So if you already own any kind of PC, you can turn it into a monster for $493.

You can get a case + PSU for $45
Some cases will be an issue with other motherboards.
You can however just use the box the mobo comes with.

Impossible as the CPU/GPU driver optimizations were put in silicon...

So basically the XBOX One X is a high end PC gaming machine at an incredibly affordable price. Thats pretty cool.

Not surprising since apparently Microsoft will sell it at a loss. If only they market it as a "next gen" console they will sold more.

A handheld gamer only (for now).
