My friend just sold his Xbox X for a GTX 1070 graphics card.

Not sure he made a good decision. I realize the pc graphics are better but he only got $300 for his console and it was fairly new.

Good choice or not?

Somebody got a bargain... and it sure wasn't him.

Yea from my point of view didn't get a bargain, as here just recently I purchased a 1070 for a project I was working on for $255. Therefore that's half the price of the the X, as retail is $500. so from my perspective should of put it up for around $400 then looked for a 1070ti which is around that price point. And if he needed anything else for the computer he could of used that spare money left over . From that perspective there are average gaming desktops/ laptops that's go for $450-500 there is always that option if he sold it for retail or traded....

He traded a dead/dying/failed console for a high midrange card that will allow him to play on the greatest gaming platform of all time. Good trade.

He made a good decision.. PC graphics are way better than consoles, thats for sure.

On the other hand, selling an X for $300... thats a waste, somebody got a bargain :)

Not the end of the world certainly, hope that your friend enjoys the new graphics card anyway. He's got Age of Empires 4 coming out in the future which is nice!
