It is a battle as old as time itself, which console is better? Everyone has their favourite, just like in the Apple V Android debate. There are many different reasons to like each side. Each have exclusive titles to the platform, different features, and different specs. Some stick with one system over another out of loyalty while others heavily weigh the options on both consoles. Lets compare the specs to see what the real difference is. If you aren't interested in the nitty gritty, tech heavy details, then you might want to skip this bit. With the latest release of the Xbox One X, both platforms are almost neck and neck in technical specifications as shown below.

For some reason the white version is selling for nearly half the price of the black colour , it really is a bargain , having full access to steam with a fairly competent but upgradeable machine. As well as being a fully fledged pc , so origin and gog are also available. As the system is now it plays skyrim in ultra but i recommend upgrading the ram and getting a nicer keyboard , mouse and controller . what you get for the price is amazing though .
Your processor can be a bottleneck for gaming, but as long as you hit a certain performance minimum, which many modern CPUs do, it's other components that are more likely to hold you back. Recent processors are more efficient than ever, with a much more capable baseline than the average CPUs of the past. For this build, we went with an eighth-generation ("Coffee Lake") Intel Core i5-8400 CPU for $179, which is more than powerful enough for mainstream gaming.
PC and console gamers both want the most bang for their buck, but what that looks like and how it’s measured is different for each group. For a console gamer, costs are generally limited to purchasing the console, extra controllers, games, and perhaps online multiplayer passes. For a PC gamer, there’s a wide variety of options to buy if you choose to build your own computer, but not every PC gamer has their own custom-built machine.
HyperX, a division of Kingston Technology, offers gamers both RGB peripherals and components for the different gaming setup as Alloy Elite RGB keyboard, Pulsefire Surge Gaming Mouse and Predator DDR4 RGB.

Built for the battlefield, the HyperX Alloy Elite is loaded with fast, accurate, and comfortable Cherry MX Red switches and a durable steel frame. RGB backlit keys and a brilliant 18-LED light bar keep you fragging away long into the night.

Though the title may not be something I can get behind (I know, I know, my name is attached to it, but hey, I gotta pay bills and this is only minor-league soul-selling), there is some truth in it. I recently penned a piece detailing how ditching consoles for a gaming PC improved my life, a far more nuanced approach to the same topic. Now, with a corporate gun to my head, I'm going to smash the metaphorical big, red button and launch this savage take.
Making your home theater into a gaming haven is not going to require much work. All you have to do is connect the gaming platform you select to the screen or projector and you can start gaming. Keeping in mind you have a screen and a decent sound system already in place. So kick your gaming experience up a notch by having your home theater serve as both a theater and a gaming room.
Played a game and hated it? Steam, Origin, GOG.com, and many other retailers now allow you to refund any game you purchase, as long as you meet certain parameters. Not only does it let you get your money back when developers don’t deliver on a game, but it also lets you test whether it runs on your machine—thereby removing much of the guesswork from PC gaming.
Now let’s get into some console gaming. The Razer Wildcat is simply going to take your Xbox gaming or computer via USB to the next level. Fully equipped with multi-function buttons, this is a controller that has the ability to remap other controls that are within it. Whether you are fighting combat on the battlefield or juking your opponent on the gridiron, one thing is for sure, the Razer Wildcat is built for additional control as well as reliability when compared to stock controllers.
The PC has always enjoyed a performance edge over console hardware, and it’s not restricted to big, heavy desktops. Zotac’s Magnus EN1080K, for instance, packs a seventh-generation Intel processor with Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1080, a graphics chip that pushes almost nine teraflops of raw computer power. That easily bests even the upcoming Xbox Scorpio, and it’s about five times more powerful than a standard PlayStation 4. Even Alienware’s Alpha, the most modestly equipped of its peers, beats the Xbox One S and PlayStation 4 in raw performance.
Backwards compatibility on consoles is a somewhat dubious matter. While the Xbox One is fully compatible with older Xbox releases, the PlayStation 4 is not. This is a situation that might change in the future, so it’s highly unpredictable. Ultimately, there’s no telling if you will be able to play a current-gen game on the next-gen console without having to pay extra for services such as the PlayStation Now.
One last thing, Steam sales. For the past two years. Consoles have been having sales that rival steam in prices. Especially during holidays. Alot of games on consoles tend to go on sale starting off at 50% off. Recent games too that just came out the past year. And sometimes if you keep checking the sales every week. They could go on sale normally in-between. 50% to 85% off. Steam sales are a thing of the past.
We were debating on including this in here, however ultimately we thought, “we need to put all of this gear on something, right?” Desks were probably the most difficult to choose ‘just one’ as a recommendation, since we actually prefer L-desks for not only gaming but office work and leisure computer use. This particular model however caught our eye for a few reasons. For one, it’s relatively affordable as compared to some higher-end desks that cost almost a grand or more. The Arena also has a nice amount of space to it at 14 square feet, and what’s even more nifty is the fact that the entire surface is a ‘custom mouse pad’ so you can have as much space as you need to move your mouse as opposed to relying on a more limited external mouse pad.
Ghosting can really get in the way of intense gaming or hard work so Anti-Ghosting can be a key feature of a great gaming keyboard. Ghosting occurs when multiple keys are pressed simultaneously but not all are registered, those missed are said to have been ‘ghosted’. Anti-Ghosting supports simultaneous keystrokes so your moves are never missed in the game.
