1000 is a very limiting budget for a pc. In fact 2k is too.So PS5 is $400-$500, XSX is $500...
and then this PC is ...
$150 motherboard, RAM
$300 case, PSU, CPU cooler, cables, etc (edit- forgot to write SSD in this part)
$50 mouse & keyboard
Yeah the $1000+ PC is the same price lol ok
And no don't count "I have old parts I can sell or I already have some of those" because that works with consoles as well. I paid less than $180 for my PS4 because I had my PS3 and games to sell off, etc.
Nobody wants 6c 12t. You want 8c 16t cpu and that's 5800x. Then you want pcie x4 for that fast nvme. That's x570... Gpu? Shame to put 3060 in it, gotta get 70 or 80.
Oh 20usd keyboard? Nope... Keyboard is 200...
Pc is hell of money and problems. I know, I am a pc gamer since 1997 and love/hate it
It goes like this forever. You can build for 1k no problems but it's cutting corners city.
Also getting a gpu is just impossible and prices are doubled from msrp. My 3080 was the last one sold at msrp lol. Getting it for msrp now sounds like I made a great deal.
For ps5 I had to wait since release. It's finally coming today but I think it will speed up
