I'm thinking the Xbox One X is worthy of replacing my gaming PC.

So I'm really impressed with the Xbox One X specs as of late, and I'm debating on pulling the trigger on one versus keeping the gaming rig. Right now I'm running a pretty pedestrian master race pc with a G4620 and a gtx1060 3gb. It handles every game great at 1080p.

Now I know consoles can never match a high end pc but I know the console has so many advantages. The pc community is probably a lot smaller than the xbox community, that means overall, it's probably a sure thing to find multiplayer matches quickly, and multiplayer won't die out as fast on console as they do on PC.

Another obvious advantage, is no hackers on the xbox as far as the really bad stuff...like aimbot, etc.

Any way I think the xbox one x has really bridged that gap a bit as far as resolution and IQ. I told myself that I would get a console that has gtx1060 level graphics, and the xbox one X seems to fit that bill. I just hope they don't do stupid things like limit the fps to 30...that's what I hated on past consoled. With the power of the xbox one X, it would seem everything should run at 60fps.

So I'm thinking I'll sell my GTX1060 card while they are pretty hot still and going for $200 and up and use that toward the xbox one.

Really depends on games. If you only play cross platform games then you'd probably be fine. I'd never do it myself as I play more exclusive PC titles.

You also have to remember every game built for Xbox One X has to work for base Xbox One, so that really limits what they can do technology wise. They have to build the game so the performance is good for the weakest system.

I'm not being mean when I say I find this line of thinking pretty dumb.

What I'm hearing - reduced to it's essence - is "I'm missing out on the virtual Mos Eisley otherwise known as XBox Live."

Unless you consider this sort of thing a "feature"

there's just not much a console can do that your PC can't.

I find your proposition #literally absurd. But I suppose peer pressure's a b!tch...

I didn't use a spoiler tag because you just seam to take them for granite. But don't worry old chap, I'm hear to help you. For all intensive purposes, your probably relying on spell check a bit to much. But who knows, maybe this post is a blessing in the skies for other people who make similar mistakes, or maybe it's just a mute point and all for not.

Heard nothing but great things about the Xbox one x thus far however. Games are as cheap on the x as they are on pc when there are sales. Pc exclusive titles are really rare. But I'm not into the niche stuff any more. I did like the total war stuff in the past. But you played one you played them all.

Xbox exclusives like forza is more of an attraction to me.

And I prefer controllers vs mouse and keyboard as well.

So to me the Xbox x is the perfect console. CPU not as powerful but it's enough for games

My main thing was FPS, smoothness and iq...things that the x finally addressed

Was actually thinking of getting a gtx1070 but decided on the Xbox X instead.

sounds like you've made up your mind.

for me console gaming is really only fun split screen. PC gaming offers a bigger selection of games and a wider variety. not to mention some games are just better with a keyboard and mouse.

We've been doing a lot of MP games on PC. PUBG, Hand Simulator, Gang Beasts, Genital Jousting, Garry's Mod Prop Hunt/Murder.. . There's just so much diversity in the PC market.

I thought Genital Jousting was a local co-op thing.

Achievements are not for the meek, it is better to forfeit inheritance of the earth so that the mighty may look upon my gamerscore, and despair. Achievements are for men who dream; men who dare; men who achieve! Men who carve out entire galaxies with nothing more than nimble cheetos-dusted fingers and their wits, and in our leisurely twilight days we shall sit by softly flickering fires with our descendants recounting the tales of these unimaginable glories.

Forza 7 is available for PC so that's mis-information, just like most of your post. PC has the best games at the best prices with the best multiplayer experiences available.

Best not to even bother responding, it's an obvious Xbox fan boy troll

Most recent reason why everyone should be armed at all times:
Santa Fe, TX school shooting. 10 killed 10 wounded.
This was a gun free zone. The shooter didn't care. Gun free zones only hurt honest citizens. If someone was armed there could've been 1 less death.

Pretty similar, but with a medieval theme.
