I'd advise IP blocking WEP6.COM (192.31.186.21) due to malware/script eventing, along with an insta-ban on liasli's IP.

..and all this can be had for the low-low price of about SIX PS4s!!

I find it hard to follow the "non-fanboy" logic of people who think the general population is stupid for not getting on board with a system that costs $2,500. "They're holding us back!"

Gordon, you're always making some elitist-distinction between console gamers and PC gamers saying "console gamers aren't hardcore." I finally get it: nothing says "hardcore" like spending a few grand so your kids can play Call of Duty or Battlefield ;)

...casual gamer is a term I'm comfortable with if it means I can play any game I want on a console or build a PC that doesn't cost more than twice as much as a console.

+1 - Couldn't have said it better. What does it matter WHAT I game on, judge a PC by it's merits against other PC's. What it can or can't do against a console is about as asinine as comparing an Hummer to a Fiat. I game on both because they offer different experiences and some games like Madden, I can't even play on the PC. I've always hated the console Vs PC argument because there really isn't a winner, just preference.

I prefer to play at a high resolution with a PC. That is my preference.

how high of a resolution are you playing at? I know 720 p can be a bummer for console games. are you playing at above 1080p? I think the next gen of consoles will mostly run at1080p. so unless you are talking about multi-monitor gaming, which I know you're not, your comment is the typical pc is better than console garbage.
It doesn't matter what you game on as long as you love it.

5760x1200. You are not the only one who owns high-end hardware. There are plenty of people with even better than you. There is no need to start an argument. Why? There was never one to begin with. The end.

ummm....

do i need to point out AGAIN this Maximum PC, not Low Cost Console?

Engelsstaub

No, but people need to get a grip on reality and stop crying about how "everyone's holding us back!" That's life in every aspect. Maximum PC does (usually) represent enthusiast-interests just like Sterophile reviews speakers that cost more than my car. Sterophile often reviews low-cost turntables and MaxPC sometimes reviews budget components and laptops,

The problem is when we act like a bunch of out-of-touch superdorks who think that everyone's going to buy a "maximum PC" just to play games. "Low Cost Console?" Shit, dude: most people don't even want to spend 400 bucks or more on a new console. They'll wait a year or two until the price comes down and think the people who stand in line for Playstations and XBoxes on Day 1 are "hardcore." That's reality. I don't know one single person IRL who would drop 2500 on a PC even if it made them breakfast in the morning...people with money to burn too.

People can cry all they want about how the gen-pop are holding back their graphics-experiences by going console, and I empathize with that viewpoint, but it won't change a thing. The enthusiast thinks everyone else is stupid for not getting a good PC to play on, while everyone else thinks PC gamers are elitist dorkwads for expecting them to drop this kind of money on a system to play CoD or Madden...or some console-port.

BTW: my last PC cost $200 less than the one in this article (and no it was not a Mac.) Though nobody ever said it aloud to me, I saw an awful lot of "wow, you're dumb" looks when I told them it had cost that much.

list your rig specs bro! consoles define gaming now. get used to it. are you a "hard core gamer?" all your caveats are now
owned by amd. so get in line with your complaints.

Hey.That_Dude

It's a very nice little rig. Sounds like it could be loads of fun to play with if I had that much money to throw around.

People who use the word fanboy to describe other people are often times biased themselves, just like people who in an argument will state "you think you're always right" which are usually the one who actually can't deal with being wrong.

really, no Haswell chip?

Thankfully, not.

Wasn't this published originally before Haswell rolled out?

That's correct, this review was in the May 2013 issue and there were no Haswell CPUs then.
