That said, it should be obvious which type of audience these two types of consoles cater to and which you belong to. And since the latter consoles are in a league of their own, the PlayStation and the Xbox are the ones which share most of their games with PC and are the ones that compete with it. As such, we will be referring primarily to them throughout this guide when speaking of “consoles”.
When gamers want to game they want only the best. The best titles, the best specs, the best graphics, the best internet speed. Gamers always want more from game and console developers. Gamers always want to have the best gaming setup, so we're here to help. We are going to cover everything you need to create the ultimate gaming setup for you from consoles to computers, mice to monitors. Since we've already gone through how to build your own PC, lets start with console gaming and how to make the most of it.

Microsoft (with its $9.99-per-month Xbox Live Gold) and Sony (with its $9.99-per-month PlayStation Plus) are very happy to squeeze a few extra dollars out of their fan bases with paid multiplayer services. And Nintendo, with its "I learned it by watching you" online outlook, plans to follow suit in September 2018 with a somewhat-mysterious paid multiplayer service that eliminates the company's current free offering.
Lian Li's Alpha tower includes a small pedestal near the front on which you can install your boot drive, and it was strangely satisfying to mount the SSD to this little metal stand and screw it into the case, propped up like a trophy. The SSD isn't the most eye-catching item, but it gains some celebrity when it's on display like that. Hiding the cables leading up to this lone plinth is a little tricky once it's plugged in, but it's a nice touch. The RAM was similarly easy to install, and we wanted to get it in there before the DIMM slots were made difficult to reach due to other components getting in the way.
With everything else selected, we were able to get a sense of how much power we'd need to run the system. The GPU and CPU are the main power drains, and given the components we selected, the 650W Corsair VS Series VS650 is strong enough for the job. 450 to 500 watts is enough for a GTX 1070 and the relevant components, so the VS650 even leaves some headroom to be safe. It's not one of the fancier options—it's non-modular, without the higher-end gold or platinum certification—but in a build that doesn't require excessive power and is trying to stay under a price limit, it should be a fine fit.
This is no longer the case as titles are now available across platforms; and in nearly all cases, the PC title is better than its console counterpart. Why? Because most computers are simply more capable than consoles. Take for example the Sony PlayStation® 4; with a processor speed of 1.6GHz and 8GB of RAM, is bested even by some entry-level laptops. Thus, in the ongoing debate that is console vs. PC gaming, many gamers are starting to ask themselves why they should show allegiance to any one console when their gaming PC can support all of the titles that interest them – while also providing all of the benefits of a computer.
Anyone who's a gamer knows that for as long as there has been a divide between console gaming and PC gaming, there has been a debate on which is better. The console gamers have often argued that by virtue of their devices being dedicated gaming machines, consoles were better suited for gaming. PC gamers would counter-argue that PC machines have far more computing power than their console counterparts, and thus are for true gamers. The debate is only further muddied by the fact that many of today's consoles are now designed as do-everything machines. They can just as easily be used to watch Netflix or Hulu as they can be used for gaming. Which begs the question: If consoles are starting to emulate computers, what do they offer the modern gamer?
