J_ wroteprebuilt for 600 will be a waste of money if im being honest man. tell your friend to watch a few PC build vids and then to get parts, it is truly so simple, ive built 4
Not a waste its just an entry into pc gaming. Is it on the cheap side hell yeah. But we all start somewhere with what we have.
yeah but you dont buy prebuilt as an entry lol
Many people buy a prebuilt as an entry, I can't agree with that method BUT many PC gamers don't have the capability of building their own rig and don't know enough to tackle it themselves from the beginning. If you build as an entry, you probably already have prior knowledge about PCs, a lot more than someone who's just trying to switch from console to PC. There's nothing wrong with overspending for convenience if you have the money.
dont have the capability??? not being rude but sentences like that are the reason so many people make mistakes when switching to pc. if you dont know how to do something then you what..? Learn, thats the way of life, we had to learn how to do things but the difference between that and building a pc is building a pc is easy. especially if its low budget, wont be any water cooling or vertical mounting in mini cases. i have built 4 PCs, all of which were very simple from watching videos on how to do so which id be happy to link the one i watched. after the first PC was built, the rest were so simple.
wasnt trying to be rude in any way but Pre built IS not the way to go. especially if youre going to upgrade later, all prebuilts get cheaped out on the PSU, ram, and case and motherboard typically. he would be overpaying by a longshot, i built a $440 pc that can easily run your daily games at good settings.
Okay. That's great for you and others capable. The guy clearly asked for prebuilt recommendations, telling him "duh dude learn what are stupid" isnt helping him. I understand, and so do most, that building them is something anyone can teach themselves.
But again for those with money, there is nothing wrong with paying for the convenience. Dogging on people who want to play on PC for buying a prebuilt instead of welcoming them to the community is one of the many reasons PC master race became a meme. I mean, just look at all of 21s replies in this section. Lol
im not making fun of him at all bud. im hitting him with the truth. idgaf if he buys prebuilt or builds a million of them, its his money, not mine. i was just giving him REAL ADVICE rather than letting him run into the many problems you face with prebuilt. you keep using the word "capable" if he can operate a mouse and keyboard then he can put a pc together. the pc master race gets "meme'd" because people are too helpless to try and learn something. not discussing this anymore lol. i gave useful advice
Pretty sure hes aware. No reason to get contentious. Just because something is simple for you doesn't mean it's simple for everyone. I'm sure hes appreciative of your input. Lol. Have a good one, J.
