And gamefly unlimited PC play is just terrible, they only have some really old titles like red faction (the first one) with all the characters have polygon heads.

You mean you only did the main story which is not beating the game. Your ignorance and stupidity is unmatched.

Skyrim in 6 hours.....Skyrim in 6 hours.....Skyrim in 6 hours.....

Skyrim in 6 hours.....

Wait.....where were we? Oh yeah, the topic at hand. One of my greatest regrets is that I waited so long to build my own system. If you have the money, you should too. You will not regret it for all of the reasons the other members have stated. Plus, there is a wealth of experience on the site to help you prepare for the build and to advise you when/or if problems arise. Go for it!

Skyrim in 6 hours? I still can't wrap my brain around that one.

If you have the money I'd say go for it. PC Gaming is great because 1. The games are way better on PC, they run smoother, with better graphics. Win/Win.
And 2. You can use a PC for anything, for gaming, Internet, You tube, Folding, almost anything.

AND You can have a massive PC hard drive. Unlike silly 320gb console HDD's. I'd rather have a nice SSD (wish i had 1) for a boot drive, and a 1TB for games, movies and music.

Two games, metro 2033 on max settings, bf3 on max settings 5040x1050. These games make you go "holy crap!".

I was more talking about they "I consider mmo players nerds who pay $15/mo for the same game." as stupid and ignorant also the fact that saying a game is out dated because you sped through the game the day after it came out. So apparently I don't have a life because I like to play games I pay $60 for for more then 6 hours. Of course I'm stating my opinion that's the whole point of a forum rolleyes.gif.

I dont think anyone has mentioned yet that pc has released 4 major game design platforms that are being updated and improved all the time, so you can expect lots of cheep and fun and inventive indie and more mainstream major titles to come out for the pc.

Not to mention apart from game design programs, theres a huge market for livestream gaming thats growin and will most likely explode into a huge growing comunity by the end of this year.

Its never too late to get into pc gaming and its not too expensive either, bought my current computer within 4 weeks of working.

Get a PC but don't expect to do as good as you would usually do on console for online shooters.

Wow, can you play Metro 2033 on maximum settings with that resolution! I am actually jealous, really, I am. I am able to play on High settings, with DX10, but on 1920x1080 and i get 60fps usually.
In saying that, I did find a Config file that makes the game run alot better somehow, I used to have to play on low, now I get better performance on higher settings o_O

And to the guy saying you don't do as well on a PC and you do a console, don't say that, on MW3 I get scores like 20kils / 5 deaths. On my mates Xbox 360 it's the other way round. You just have to get used to the controls.
