how long before a console beats my rig? - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Your rig would be superior for ages.

2600k + GTX580 = win combo IMO. Just one will eat any game for breakfast, except perhaps BF3 on maxed on 1920x1080. However, since you're rocking SLI, that is a non-issue..

Even a mid-range rig is a console's wet dream lolz.

Sure you'll blow away a console, but in the end you'll have a slight edge because the game is 100% optimized for them and nowhere near that for the PC.
But! At least you have a keyboard and mouse!.... for now.

I figured console would probably never match these specs but at some point they'll be able to offer a superior gaming experience. I sort of think i'll have ps4/x720 beat for experience but if/when ps5 type shiz comes around i might be looking a little threadbare and long in the tooth comparatively.

I'm certain i'll build again long before this wont cut it, but i generally build from scratch. So i envision this rig staying in it's current form for a long time and just being moved down the food chain... relegated to a browing / email machine or a home server..

You're probably right about the vram. I should have waited until they released the 3gigs but i was impatient.

well seeing as youre comparing apples to oranges, the answer is kinda hard to give, since most games for us are console ports we're stuck with un-optimized software running on high performance hardware vs mediocre hardware running super optimized software

The 8800GTX and the PS3 were released in the same year, this might give you an idea of how long your current rig will be able to max out games. (for a while the 8800 could max everything apart from Crysis, which wasn't a console game)

I'm going to say never. I just don't see consoles pulling ahead of what a PC can do. In x years when they "catch up" thats x many more years for the PC to advance further.

We won't be using silicon when they do.
