I've mainly been a console user and only really recently learned about high-end gaming PCs (I know, doy). Most times when I've played PC games, it's been on my laptop (which is generally supposed to be used for school and some misc fun stuff), and the games that I've run on it have always had frame rate hiccups, though usually not bad enough to ruin my immersion or fun. Plus I never like using a mouse or keyboard and was always more comfortable using a controller. (I know you can attach them to PCs, but by the time I learned this I had lost my USB cords for my PS3 controllers and had gotten one of those charger stands instead, and it didn't make sense to buy one when I mostly used consoles anyway). But the point is that for the longest time I was confused about people saying that PC gaming was the best option when it comes to gaming when in my experience consoles always did better, lmao.
So do most of you PC users here have high-end gaming PCs? And what does the cost of such hardware amount to? Would you say it's a practical investment?
