PC gaming is awesome. It's great when you build your own computer. But if you are not sure how to do that, get a computer like a dell xps, alienware, or something like that.

I couldn't agree more, plus you get the satisfaction of building it yourself, but if you have never built one you may want to get some help from someone that has.......

Funny seeing how thats where i got my information. Read any site. They all agree that PC gaming is being overtaken by console gaming at a very fast rate.

I think they are definitely worth it, I myself am making the switch from console to PC games. From my experiences, a specific game on the PC is always better than that game on the console especially with patches and mods etc(but now that is also being done more with the console games). Aside from that, I'd say another huge factor is the fact that it can do so much more. As someone else also stated that PCs are great for doing projects and such.

Another (slightly off-topic) question. I was thinking about getting into 3D computer design. Like making custom 3D models out of polygons and stuff. What computer/program(s) would I need to do that? And where can I learn some skills related to that stuff?


Well there's Blender, which is free and open source.  If you really feel like paying money, there's Maya or 3D Studio Max.



if you have the money, get Rhinoceros (i think its part of Autocad)

ok here is what you need/want
 
Core 2 Duo, you dont really need the extreme edition or u can wait for quad cre which you can buy now
 
at least 1GB of ddr2, but 2GB DDR2 just makes the world go round
 
At least a 7600 nvidea maybe sli (two of the same video cards) sli would keep you going for a while
 
thats it! and a good mobo and a big HD

I got a gaming PC recently cause I have more interest in shooters, and PCs are the way to go for shooters.

Pc Gaming will never be gone, it will never die. Why? Because it is alot cheaper and there is more amaeturs that are able to make games on the PC then that on the console.
