PCs are always on the cutting edge of gaming technology. The current generation of consoles with high-definition capabilities briefly narrowed the gap, but well-equipped PCs continue to offer superior graphics. High-resolution computer monitors and the latest multicore processors and dual GPU solutions make it possible to build a remarkably powerful gaming system. Even if a console offers incredible technology upon its release, there is no way for it to compete with the rapid hardware advancements that have become a way of life in the computer industry.
First up, the dramatically titled Logitech 'Prodigy' gaming keyboard has been reduced by 42 per cent to £34.99 - the lowest it's ever been at the retailer, and the best price we've seen online. The exact same model will set you back £70 at Argos right now. Ideal for both performance gamers and folk who really enjoy bright colours, this keyboard boasts many advantages, such as a tactile, mechanical feel optimised to suit gaming, and an integrated rest for wrist strain. The Prodigy is also around four times faster than your average keyboard, and can be uniquely mapped with simple software.
Big Picture Mode is an alternative Steam interface, and one you’ll likely become very familiar with if you decide to build a Steam Machine. If you’re curious about it and want to play around with the interface, it’s available on Steam for any computer. Go to the top right corner of your main Steam window, and click the controller icon. Immediately, you’ll launch Big Picture Mode.
Unlike consoles, which can restrict the way you play, PC users benefit from a wide variety of controllers and mice to choose from. Gamers looking to kick back and relax can enjoy the freedom of wireless controllers, joysticks and even a steering wheel for racing games, like most consoles. However, when precision is key, PC users can utilize a gaming mouse. Gaming mice are particularly accurate, allowing you unrivalled control and accuracy during first-person shooter games. These are often favored by professional gamers, who can’t afford to have anything less than perfect accuracy.
When it comes to which gear for your own gaming experience and skills should be upgraded, it will ultimately come down to personal preference. We know a few of our friends who are just about professional gamers (big Fortnite people) who prefer an old mechanical keyboard and beat up mouse pad; however, when it comes to their mouse, headset and overall PC rig, they’re constantly on the prowl for the latest upgrades. Others we’ve spoken to can get by with just about any gaming gear as long as it works, while some others we know are consistently trying to get that edge over their opponents in any way possible.
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.

After a trip to PC world, my nephew (who knows a lot more about computers than me) explained a few things to me and I was very surprised to see how much better this PC is compared to what the likes of PC world were offering. Almost double the power, more storage space, double the memory, for almost £150 less!!! You don't get the monitor like the PC World one but after checking online the screen they were offering with theirs cost only £60 on Amazon, so I could buy it separately and still save money!!!
The first line of eighth-generation-compatible boards (boards based on the Z370 chipset) cost over $100; these less expensive B360 models are relatively new. This model comes with a solid port selection and plated heatsinks that don't get in the way of installation, and it fits the black-and-white color scheme. The two main concessions for the B360 boards' lower prices are that you can't overclock CPUs installed in them, and that they support only one video card. That syncs up perfectly with the plan for this particular build, so we were happy to save the money. It's relatively straightforward but effective, and at $79 with a $10 rebate, this motherboard definitely doesn't break the bank.
When it comes to gaming, Argos are champions. We are your one stop shop whether you need a PS4 console, Xbox One console or, if you fancy playing on the go, a Nintendo Switch. The contest between Microsoft and Sony is fierce, with both releasing high spec versions of their consoles for dedicated fans, the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro respectively. Sony have even re-released their original PlayStation as the PlayStation Classic, which comes preloaded with classic games.
Looking at the comments for this article, really keeps the angry PC elitist stereotype alive. The article was completely objective, but he did have some good points though. Console gaming is cheaper, there's no doubt about it. And don't give me that crap about ps+ or Xbox gold. He's talking about initial startup price. Some of these guys going on about $500 or less PC's. Yeah it's true you can get one for that price. But only if you want to play cheap Indies and AAA's from 5 years ago. Otherwise playing modern games. Your easily going to spend $800 or more.
But there are so many console games on PCs nowadays, it’s only natural you want to play some of them with the original control scheme. Dark Souls comes to mind, as does Assassin’s Creed. These games just play better on a gamepad. Luckily, it’s easier than ever to connect an Xbox One controller or a DualShock 4 to your PC, either wired or (in the case of the Xbox One S and DS4) with Bluetooth. And most games support controllers on the PC these days, especially the big multi-platform releases.
