My PC is a PS3 killer - Page 2

post #11 of 41
Yeah when I feel like chilling out with a few beers and play some SP games. I hook my PC upto my 32" 1080p LCD TV and Yamaha HT Receiver with a 360 pad and crank up the settings. I mostly play New Vegas and Dirt 2 It is awesome. I played on an Xbox 360 around my mates and was very suprised how bad the games are graphically really.

I do this all the time.

I love when people come over and their jaws drop from the graphic goodness.

Yeah whenever I go to my friends house and we play GTAIV on his PS3... It looks like pooop.


Then when he came over to my place and saw it on my PC.. he had one of these moments

Personally I'm a gameplay>graphics kind of guy,
which might be why we don't see eye to eye,
but I must let you know your argument is getting pretty dry,
now I could keep rhyming but it'd be a lie,
because, you see... well I don't know why.

The PS3 graphics were outdated upon release as the 8800GTX released at the same time. PC Gamer actually lured a potential buyer away and gave him a $7500 machine if promised to never buy a PS3 in his lifetime http://www.joystiq.com/2006/11/17/pc...00-gaming-rig/

Bet it gets pretty awkward when the guy checks up on him.

Thats was 2006. I bet that PC struggles these days maxing out games. I must say that is the one thing console have going for them you dont have to keep upgrading the hardware every few years. Most PC Gamers know the advantages of upgrading there build and dont have a problem selling there old card or using old hardware to build another PC and selling it on. So the price isnt quiet the hit it may seem.

Still plays all the console ports @ max.

I had a 8800gtx rig and I was playing BFBC2 on medium and a bunch of other top games on high/medium settings. There is a reason why the 8800 series is legendary.
