Even if you buy a pc for 600 bucks to buy a graphics card to run high end games is gonna set you back 250 easy. Im talking about a comp that can run games on their next gen graphics. You show me a pc for 700 bucks that will run crysis 3 at 31 fps. My friend had to drop 1500 on a custom pc in order to run crysis on that and even then it dips into the medium 20's. Next gen graphics require a lot of computing power. They have been out for a while on computer but the amount of money needed to actually get them to show is a lot more than any console. I can go pick up a 360 for 200 bucks and run skyrim and it looks pretty good. Now to get a pc to run it at its very best is gonna set you back a lot more than 200 bucks. PC gaming is a lot more expensive then console gaming and that is why next gen graphics on consoles is such a big deal even though they have been out on pc for a while, just too pricey to really have it at your finger tips.
Im not sure what games your referring to but to play the games that are known to look beautiful at their best settings i.e. crysis or witcher 2 your gonna have to put a pretty penny into your pc to be able to run them at their best and still have a great gaming experience.
yeah but if you do the math in combination with getting games on steam it will set you back a lot less money once that computer is built than paying $60 for console games whenever a new one comes out.
You'd actually save money in the long run doing computer gaming than console gaming. Because of the money it would cost to get the games on PC and steam over paying 60 for console games and bonus content while also having more to offer add-on wise than any console if you wanted to mod
