It was a bit under €800 and not €900 as I originally stated. That included Windows, but no peripherals, or monitor. i3-2120 and AMD HD 6770, 8 gigs of DR3 dual channel ram, dh67gd motherboard. No, they're not impressive specs, but I was nevertheless disappointed in their performance. I could've probably shaved off a bit from the cost, but didn't have the interest to shop around. And yes, it would have been cheaper in the U.S.
Yeah that PC is quite overpriced, I don't know how much it'd cost in your country but I bought a 6870 for $150 2 and a half years ago. You should be able to buy something like a R7 265 and it'll be a capable gaming machine, no need for anything expensive.
People telling you to buy a budjet PC are dumb. Just look at the feature gamespot did on budget PCs. Those things ran watch dogs like garbage. Watch dogs is a game in the first wave of current gen that can also run on last gen. Laughable. You build a machine like that and it's outdated before you even turn it on. If you want to go PC you're looking at 1500$ for something decent that won't be outdated in 2 years.
But for me, the deal breaker for PC as your primary/only gaming device is that PC often gets shafted in the developement of games in the first half of a console generation. Some games will get delayed on PC, some won't ever come out on the platform, some will run like garbage because new consoles get all the attention. Finally, most PC exclusives are made with old ass specs in mind so more people can actually buy them. You should be able to run those on whatever old ass PC you already have. PS4 exclusives like Bloodborn on the other hand...
Watch_Dogs just runs like garbage, it's not the hardware. Those builds could run everything else significantly better than a console and perhaps Watch_Dogs too, I don't know about that.
