Intel, unlike AMD is not in charge of NVIDIA. Even with AMD, you can still mix and match, just probably not as cheep, like you said. Intel and Nvidia are just grouped together via marketing and the fact that AMD cpu and gpu are, leaving them 'partners'

ouch ouch ouch. You hurt my head sir. You really want the price to jump up because they chose the 7 series AMD as appose to last gen Nvidia? We are trying to bring gaming to a broader spectrum of people, not by making it more expensive -.-.

I assume you want the 7000 series, because that is the only reason AMD is "ahead int the GPU game" at the moment. Now if your argument is to go with a 69** AMD, I would support you, but that is not ahead in the GPU game, now is it? Just decent price.

I don't know about nvidia being ahead though (I do own one) they got the 3 next gen consoles, apple computers and a big chunk of the pc market.

I wonder if this would use Windows or if valve is coding their own operating system. If it doesn't use Windows it might run games better than regular pc's.

Does this mean they are making a console to compete with playstation and xbox?
post #16 of 29
Why are you complaining that they are providing more than what you need?

I don't get it... Valve is currently an AMD partner and they go for an Nvidia GPU?

Just saying, but who is going to buy a high end computer that can ONLY play steam games? It's literally just going to be a branded and endorsed gaming rig.

No. It will use Windows.
post #20 of 29
I hope the specs are a 2500, 560ti, 8GB of ram, and maybe 500GB storage.

if it's in a small package like the x51, I'd pay 1000$ for it

oops i7 so 2600 or K?
