re: Gaming Computer

you might want to valuate these parts lower since a lot of them can be purchased brand new for cheaper than the prices you listed.

Wrong.

Used parts are inherently more valuable than their new counterparts.

Why would a PC need 4 video cards?

re: Gaming Computer
You'll be able to play everything at 60+ (probably more like 75+) FPS on 1440p pretty easily. The only game I can see being taxing is crysis 3

you realize he was trying to build a computer that would run every game on its highest setting in 1440, right? not 1080.
i swear to god you act so fricking ignorant in master race threads

eta: in case you werent aware, a 1440p screen is 400% more than a standard 720p and requires HDMI 1.3 to run properly.

re: Gaming Computer
i assumed he new something and was just acting as console peasants often do. i mean he did start a thread trying to quantify the value of a gaming pc vs console didnt he? is it too much to expect that person to know something about the subject matter?
