My computer build is now about a year old, and it has not disappointed. I worried that there would be some breakthrough in PC gaming hardware that would 1) make all my components way overpriced and 2) allow game devs to sprint past my abilities.
However, prices have mostly stayed the same (RAM down, HDD way up), and it still devours games at max settings, no hardware issues whatsoever, and the Win7Pro platform is more stable than I'd ever hoped. Good thing an old flame of mine (seriously, she was a flaming redhead) worked at microsoft and tipped me off that Pro is always better than Ultimate (more debugging and proofing for big business). It's made me question my console dedication. Since I built the PC, precious few console-only games have enticed me: Dragon's Dogma, Uncharted 3, and Dark Souls, the latter now being available on steroids through Steam. So that makes me wonder if I'll even both with the next gen of consoles, which would be weird since I've been an avid console gamer since the late 80s. We shall see!
