Just so you know the 2000 series graphics card from amd is old they now have the 7000 series.
So you little thing on go buy a 450 dollar computer and it wont even compare. lol it will compare as far as specs goes you can buy a $700.00 gaming computer from newegg.com that will be just as good as the PS4. Face it gaming consoles are just the same as computers or PC face it when you fire up you PS3 or PS4 what does it say. Oh yeah Sony COMPUTER entertainment. and the price is probably going to be like $800.00 for the PS4 how much was the PS3 when it first came out like $600.00+ Tax. So all you die hard console fans do your research oh yeah the whole downloading games straight to your game console guess where that came from oh yeah online gaming from PC's face it PC's have always been ahead of game consoles and always will be. The Jaguar 8 core CPU at 1.3 GHz lol I can buy a AND Vishera 8 core CPU that runs at 4.0 GHz not to mention the solid state drives a 7980 AMD Radeon HD graphics card ect ect ect just do the research and you will see that PC gaming is just as good as a console if not better. Oh and someone said about this
The PS4 will be awesome. First thing is first - PC will always be the best of the best. Highest performance but at the highest price and head ach. PC's crash a lot more than consoles do. Also PC's do not get the attention from game developers that consoles do. All PC's are not made the same, you need to fork out top dollar money for the hardware if you don't want system incompatibility to cause you to crash over and over. Where it gets me is what you get from consoles. You get way more games, even the PS3 right now looks very good compared to PC - games like Battlefield 3 only run at higher frames per second on PC VS PS3 and in some cases have larger maps and in all cases more players. With the introduction of the PS4 the real next gen has finally arrived. My Xbox 360 crashes an average of 3 times per night, requiring a complete restart each time. My PC my crash once a month. Care to try that lie again?
system incompatibility just and FYI with the new OS like Windows 7 and Windows 8 all hardware is compatible when you buy a motherboard or mobo it says Windows 8 ready just like the graphics card now the CPU determains if it is a 32 Bit or x86 OS or if it is a 64Bit OS if you try to install the OS as a 64 Bit OS on a 32 Bit Processor then you might run into system incompatibility issues other then that all hardware pretty much is plug n play technology now a days.

You can get a nice gaming rig with an 8 core AMD CPU (or a nice i5) paired with a GTX 660ti for about $800. I mean, why not just go with a computer. Take into account the fact that you're going to have a computer anyway, and it's probably going to be from best buy or somewhere, and it will probably cost you upwards of $500 anyway. Add that to whatever you are spending on your PS4 and you've already spent more money. Not to mention that the PS4 will be old and outdated a year after it's released. At which point PC gamers can happily continue playing without doing anything to their machines, because they paid for decent quality stuff. A couple years later, the PC gamers can then spend a measly $300 or so to upgrade their machine to the next generation, rather than buying a new console or anything.
On top of that, this article definitely over complicates the process of playing a pc game. Click install, wait 20 minutes, play game. Sounds about like the same process they go through on the PS3, except I don't need a disc to do it. Seems to me like a PS4 is just a PC that has been dumbed down to only perform a single task. I'd much rather have a PC that can be used for high performance gaming AND standard computing, rather than a PS4 that can only be used for sub standard gaming and a PC that can only be used for sub standard computing.
Basically, using a PS4 will cost you more in the long run, and it will do less for you. Why bother? Just go with a PC.

Dear r u sure what u just said...I also been making Gaming rigs, and any desent beasty rig will cost u upward of 300$ and to keep it upto date after 3 years of operation is big challenge. Even the most decent rig is old within 6 months or so.
Second thing, PS don't get outdate in an over a year, so far PS3 has been on for almost 5 years + and ivent he oldest of PS3 can play the latest of game meant for PS3 ...just update the firmware officially to latest version and you r good to go!!!! and for playing same game i can bet you cannot use even a 3 years old PC without burning money on it.
And thirdly i would prefer A PC OVER A PS3 ONLY TO SAVE BIGTIME ON BUYING NEW GAMES, WHIC IN CASE OF PC I CAN LAY MY HANDS ON PIRATED GAMES... Sorry for shouting, but thats the real catch buddy! ;-)
