Build for 15 yo console gamer

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So my son is 15 yo and thinks consoles are much better than PCs. Even quoting that he saw game play from NBA2K14 for both PC and PS4 and the console was better.

Recently he bagan playing League of Legends with me so I used the spare parts laying around to build him the following PC:

The FX 6300 is at 4.4 ghz with temps in low 60's
The 7950 FLEX has been bios flashed to run 1100/1500 at 1.25v and passed gputool for 2 hours (forgot I had it running)

The BEVT hasn't been installed yet as I just copied everything over from the BEVT to my Toshiba 3tb.

So how does this PC fare vs consoles and what can he not max out. I have a second 7950 I can use in his system or I can put a 280x or 2 in it (all laying in my closet)

I think this thing will play most games @ 1080p on High/Ultra. (Not to be an intel fanboy, but i think a 4670k would do this system some more justice wink.gif)

...and need him to spend 300 bucks on top of what he has already done. No, not worth it at all.

 

@CravinR1 That is a very powerful system already. He might not be able to max AA in every game, but for sure max the majority of games out there at 1080p.
