A personal computer is a general-purpose computer, whose size, capabilities, and original sale price makes it useful for individuals, and which is intended to be operated directly by an end-user with no intervening computer operator. This contrasted with the batch processing or time-sharing models which allowed larger, more expensive minicomputer and mainframe systems to be used by many people, usually at the same time. Large data processing systems require a full-time staff to operate efficien... View more [Wikipedia]

    Husky Wing I like him pointing out the ridiculous claim about cost. I've literally seen someone built a gaming PC that was way more capable than an Xbox One X (true 4K in cases where the X has to upscale) for less than $500.

    DJ JJ Slider Okay, I wasn't the only who thought that this sounded crazy. Lol. $2,000 might have been a fair price in the late 90s. Dude got ripped off.

    DJ JJ Slider He spent so much time name-dropping crap too. I halfway expected him to talk about a "next-gen" 3DFX graphics card. I be so high-end, mofos.

    Right, that\'s it, I\'ve had enough!!

    I\'m tired of struggling to get old games to play on a new OS, I\'m buying an old PC and putting Windows XP on it. I\'ll have it running side by side with this PC.

    Master Crash All I did was install a thing. I don't remember it's name, but I know a friend who does and I'll be with him this afternoon so I'll ask him about it.

    My PC is absolutely essential for me. I'm primarily a console gamer, but emulation means I can put all my old consoles away and have hundreds of thousands of games from older systems just a click away. I have a 42" TV plugged into my PC and an Xbox 360 controller, so it's perfect.

    That moment when changing the boot order bricks your operating system and none of the solutions on the Internet work except "re-install Windows".

    Silent Gamer Sounds good Gries. I too find a little delusion to be good for the soul

    I just cleaned the innards of my PC. Man, there was so much dust in there, it was quite scary. I should clean my PC every month instead of two times every year. I also implemented my brother's Blu-Ray drive. Works like a charm! This is the first time I actually did something all by myself on my rig. I'm so proud of me!

    Waluigifan ! Well, I used an air compressor (4-5 bar) to blow the dust out of the case. It worked really well.

    rockshard PhD whoa, heavy duty. I just had one of those compressed air in a can.

    nodley Green I built my old PC without knowing a single thing. It was easy, it's just plug and play almost.

    Maybe spending 2 grand on a PC isn't really worth it considering
    - I'm only playing indie games and the occasional sim on PC anyway
    - having no PC allows me to focus my attention on my other hobbies and or consoles

    Sandy Vich I meant mouse/keyboard and worded it badly, but yes, much greater options for remapping keys is another big plus, though ironically I'd much prefer that versatility for console gamepads.

    Husky Wing Yeye I feel you hun. Steam\'s integrated that controller feature (first Steam Controller, then DS4, not sure if the options for other controllers are out yet)

    Husky Wing But in the future, consoles should adopt something like the Xbone Elite, incorporate rebinding as well.

    wait wait wait. I could, like, get a pc from alternate.de but without a GPU and simply plug in the GTX660 from my alienware x51, right?
