Amazin how a thread how NVIDIA didn't want to support the PS4 turns into "PC vs Consoles".
I have enough money to buy both a gaming PC (already have one) and consoles (Am getting a PS4)
They both have their fair share of exclusives.
Any games that they share, I typically buy on console (Unless the game is a non-COD FPS that focuses on realism, in which I buy on PC, like Battlefield or Crysis, or a game like Tomb Raider, with extra graphical options on PC) Or of course, if the game has really cool player mods (like all the graphical mods you can do with Skyrim. Not to mention my Skyrim on PS3 happened to be one of those buggy ones, so the PC version played nice)
Or if the game just makes more sense on either one (i.e. Never buying an Assassin's Creed game on PC, seems more of a controller game. But RTS games would make their home on PC)

I swear its old, like I said though its upgrade able, it was 8 years old when I bought the ps3. It wasn't top of line when I bought it or it would of cost 3 to 5k. When I got mgs 4 bundle for 675 bucks, that PC was 8. Yrs old.
I had it 8 years at that time, and like I said it wasn't top of the line or it wouldn't of been cheaper. It still IDE DVD drives only sata it came with was HDD but it has sata cord so I could up grade all hardware to sata if I want. P4 processor single core. It came with os Xp home 5.something I believe or smaller. Win updates made it like Xp newer version though.
Now the story changes.
Oh, it's not 20 years old, maybe 15.
Then it is not 15, maybe 8.
Then it's just to "really old".
Nothing you type is worth the pixels used to display it. You are full of crap. You always have been. People shoot down your arguments in micro seconds, and when they do, you just change your story.
Pathetic. I really hope the asylum you live in gives you your dose of Thorazine, so you are knocked out for the rest of the day, and the rest of us can be spared your BS.
You owe it to yourselves as gamers to drop this nasty, unhealthy habit that is Home.
Save yourselves the money.
Save yourselves the aggravation.
Save your PS3's HDD.
Just say NO to Home.

You know that if you take a PC, and upgrade all the parts, then it's no longer old, right?
Your PC is only as old as the parts you are CURRENTLY using.
I have an old Windows 98 PC in my guest room. If I take out the HDD, Motherboard, CPU, GPU, RAM, PSU, and put in a brand new Motherboard, Intel i7-3770k, an NVIDIA GTX690, 16GB RAM, 2TB HDD+32GB Boot SSD, and a 1000W PSU, does that make it still old? No.

GPU alone won't help you.
CPU/GPU combination is important, because if one is lacking, it causes bottlenecking.
If I had a Pentium 4 processor @ 1.6Ghz (single core), and somehow managed to install the new GTX Titan, think it would run any games?
Not one bit.
Amazing how you never actuallly listed your EXACT COMPUTER parts. You just say "Radeon 256" or whatever.

How am I proving your point? I just said that an old PC wouldn't play games if you only change ONE part. The example PC I listed would cost well over $2000.
And you avoided my question on your PC parts.

Yes, you need to know what each part is.
Processor model + Clock speeds + # of cores
GPU Model + Core Clock Speed
RAM + Speed (DDR1, DDR2, DDR3, etc)
HDD Model + Storage Capacity
PSU Model + Wattage
Operating System + Service Pack + 32/64Bit
If you don't know any of these, then you really suck with computers in the first place
