Gaming Dollars & Sense

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Quote:
The foundation of a great-performing PC is very often built upon the gaming performance of it. There is little fallancy in that approach since games are the major final hurdles for just about any PC. If a PC makes the mark for this area, it will probably handle just about any form of usage well enough. Great gaming on the PC does not come cheap however, so join us as we try to make sense of our dollars!

Some of the hardware choices in that article didn't make any sense. I think basically they were just trying to highlight the products of their sponsors. I mean over $90 for the budget power supply and I don't know where those people buy their ram because that set of G. Skill on Newegg is like $160 not $250. Plus the micro ATX motherboard for the bugdet system at over $100? That is ridiculous. You could get a full size DFI that is quite a bit better in my opinion for under $100. I would say that this was a pretty poorly thought out article.

There's too big of a gap in parts between the budget and premium rigs. I don't think it's a good review....
