    One last question. My bad fellas. What size case y'all want. Micro, medium or large. This will help determine mother board and graphics card size

    What's the difference between case sizes?

    why are pc players always trying to get people into pc gaming. " you're nobody unless you're playing gta online on pc" pc masterace, console peasants blah blah blah. look, I made my decision nearly a year ago when I shelled out 500 for a ps4 and i'm happy with it.
    I don't have time to build a pc, installing fans and whatnot so that precious 1000 dollar piece of plastic with wires and circuit boards don't over heat. consoles players won't have that problem or get the red light of death if they only shut of the damn things when they are not using them like I do. all that for slightly better graphics and the ability to make iron man fly around in los santos no thanks.

    1) dont start that shit fam

    2) if you really want to have a legit discussion as to why I personally prefer pc over console, then we can, but dont start just spewing dumb shit. I aint forcing NOBODY to do anything, but i've read there is some interest in switching to PC on this site.

    3) You talking to somebody who has played consoles EXCLUSIVELY from every generation starting with the NES, and I JUST became a PC guy in the last 2 years

    4) And if you got time to watch Porn, play that shitty ass Madden football game, or any other activity that you choose to spend your time on, you have time to build a pc. Idk what you think it involves, but to say I'd NEVER built one prior to me building one, the shit took 2 hours tops. Most of the time went towards getting my OS setup, but the actual build itself took 45 min to an hr

    So again, if you wanna have a real convo about it, then this is the place, but if you just wanna troll and say ignorant shit and spread misinformation, then you know how to dip out

    respectfully of course

    What's the difference between case sizes?

    you have mini, mid, and full


    couple examples of a mini. If space is an issue, this is perfect. The only downside to it might be you have difficulty (difficulty, not impossible) dealing with cord management/placement, and they have very specific motherboards that can fit in it, which may alter what type of graphics card you can pop in it.

    Neeeeeeeeeeeeeerd...

    I could never get into PC gaming to the point of building a PC. It all comes down to the games imo.

    ha

    well unless you are about console exclusives, which i dont, then most of the games that are released are multi-platform so...

    and again, its not that hard to build a pc lol.

    it aint like you building shit from scratch...you just plugging in and thats pretty much it

    Executionah got the game all fucked up.

    You can only do so much with a console I got a ps4 too but I also PC game.

    My computer aint strong enough for games like GTA for PC or anything like that.. I'm thinking about copping a gaming computer or maybe ill just try to build one idk.

    PC gaming is and always will be better than console gaming
