How to piss Hermits off.

When GPU companies like Nvidia do this............

I mean come on, it is bad enough that most PC gamers will go out of their way to try and make sure they are above console players.

I game on PC, it was a choice i made when i left the armed forces, i had the money to step into it, however, money is becoming a problem for me now, and it is becoming harder for me to upgrade my system, now do not get me wrong, my GPU has lasted through almost 4 years whilst still maxing games out, this is partly due to the stagnation of home consoles.

But when something goes bang, it needs replacing, and warranties do run out.

I am feeling the sting right now, i went from a GTX 480 which cost me 170 pounds, and was extremely reasonable cost back then in 2010, to a 5850 for 50 pounds off ebay, quite embarrassing, but sadly, in todays times, money is becoming harder to maintain.

Yes i am a PC gamer, i will remain one, but for next generation? i am on the fence.

It pisses you off, because you can't afford it?

Furthermore, why wouldn't they compare it? They solely produce that component. It also gives consumers a comparison to upcoming/mainstream components. They're appealing to the general market.

I replied to your post... I was watching the video as I replied. The point I got to... He was bitching about the cost.

Soooo much speculation...

Loving this, the only thing here is you defending PC, obviously, you just stated you never watched the video.

The whole bragging bullshit that PC gamers do is just fucking retarded, i work, i have a job, but i can't afford it now, i am struggling to maintain things and go and purchase the next high end GPU.

Not only this, what says it will stop there? my PSU dies? CPU? intel CPU's are not cheap.

You replied under a minute of the thread opening, you did not watch it, simple.

It's fine that you take such personal insults like this, all i did was say what pisses me off, but it is apparently making your hairs stand on end.

PC gaming is expensive. If you can't afford it, buy a console. It really is that simple.

Sometimes you'll see hermits trying to claim you can buy a good gaming PC for like $60, which you can if you know how to build a PC, hunt for good deals on parts, and already have the software or can get it for free.

The bottom line is that you get what you pay for, and if you want the best in gaming, you're looking at well over $1,500. My monitor alone was $1,200 (Dell U3011 @ 25x16 native resolution), my keyboard, mouse and speakers were probably another $400.

Get a better job, or a second one to help you pay for a legit gaming rig and accessories. Or just buy a PS4 in a couple months...

I stated I was watching the video. Please, don't speculate upon what I post. So, you are b*tching about the cost? Just as I posted. Yes, it is expensive. Your inadequacies are not everybody else's.

Components die. My memory died out of warranty and had to be replaced. 2 of my 360's died, and were luckily covered by a 3 year warranty (as were most of my PC components).

Now, what is your specific argument? PC gaming is expensive? Thank God, he gave you the IQ to discern that.

Exactly the post i was after, this right here is a PC gamer, mr hierarchy.

You choose to talk about me, but not the point i am making, and this is a bid to stop my point in the first place.

If you had watched the video, then read the text i typed, you may not be typing crap up, but what should i expect? people can read? lol.

I don't game on PC anymore... So, what were you after? Not the point you were making? The OP specifically referenced yourself. In fact, you went so far as to reference your service. Congratulations. Stop milking it.

I've watched it.

It is quite obvious that you just go for the personal aspect, not the point, if you can't see the point, why are you here responding? or is it to make yourself feel better?

Yet another trait of ugly people.

#18 Posted by trollop_scat (2615 posts) -

@AMD655: You don't have a point. You're just whining about PC being expensive, which everybody already knows. Go find another shoulder to cry on, you'll just get laughed at here...

You brought the personal aspect into play. How is that my fault?The video commentator can't even make his points without stuttering, plus, the video is old as sh*t.

At the end of the day, you are broke and are complaining. You brought your service into the OP for pity, and it backfired. I appreciate service men and women, but not those who b*tch because they can't afford a PC. Do one.

#21 Edited by AMD655 (4495 posts) -

So, what is the point of this paragraph? What does your armed service convey, for this topic?

It's a pity post. My cousin is in the RAF, and my Grandad was in REMI, attached to a special forces unit in WWII. I couldn't serve due to a debilitating illness. Why do I give a f*ck about your service? It's irrelevant to the topic.

Only stupid, immature people compare console hardware to high end PC hardware. They're miles apart in terms of pricing, so no sh*t the high end PC hardware is going to perform much better.

What have I made up? Provide a concise argument, with evidence. I've tackled the point. You are b*tching, because you can't afford it... It's stipulated in your OP.

Infancy, lol. Yes, my intelligence clearly defines that.

I still see how you avoid my points regarding the pity brigade. My family have served, so you have sh*t all.

#32 Posted by starjet905 (1841 posts) -

I don't understand the point you're trying to make here. Sure, the top of the line stuff is expensive, but that doesn't mean you need to buy that to game on PC. Nvidia making high-end GPUs doesn't mean that they're going to stop making decent mid-range GPUs anytime soon.

I myself can't afford high end GPUs, but I game on PC regardless. That's the beauty of PC gaming. You can build a machine that fits your requirements instead of a standard level set by some company.

As for "who cares, Nvidia?": Certainly not me. I won't be buying a high end GPU such as a Titan anytime soon, so I don't care. But those who want top of the line performance will care, and they will pay for it. Being pissed off about expensive things being available to those who want them and can pay for them is ridiculous.

No one here said PC is not the best, yet another one proves the point.

#34 Posted by soulitane (13380 posts) -

Then don't buy the best? Pretty simple, if you can't afford the best, then play on lower settings with worse hardware. At the end of the day, you'll get most of the benefits of PC gaming (such as sales and more options than consoles) just without the pretty graphics and performance.

Read over my posts. It's fairly explanatory.

I don't think I know it all... In fact, it's the opposite. I'm just schooling you. However, continue to avoid any and all questions and rebuttals... It's fun lol.

Care that you cannot actually rebut my argument? Of course. That's why I posed it. Sh*t, the entire premise is lost on you, isn't it?
