It only took a GTX 760 and Bioshock Infite, but I don't think I can go back. I am seriously considering canceling my Xbox One to upgrade my case and a few other components. I was blown away at the size of the GPU when it arrived yesterday! BARELY fits in the case I have but, thank god it does because I've never seen a game look so amazing. I am going to go broke buying games I've already played just to see the difference. This is like playing in a whole other universe! Can't believe I've been missing out on so much for so long.

Edit: I still plan on getting both consoles in the future, I've just been a "Day One" buyer since the N64 days. Now that I have a competent PC, I'm just considering investing my money that is currently set aside for xbox one, into my new rig. Can't think of any launch day console exclusives that I can't live without. Figure I'll have both consoles within a year of launch either way. I love my gaming.

My power supply pic is in the "apple guy bought a PC" thread a few down. On my ipad now and can't post another pic. It's brand new though.

I have a gtx 760 on the way that requires an 8 pin connector. If I don't have an 8 pin, can I use two 4 pin, or do most have an 8 pin?

@devildoll: not pre built. Built recently on my budget with knowledge of upgrading soon. There is no spec sticker. Started out as a case. He put in the mother, I have an i5 on order, 8G ram, several expansion slots. I'm not rich. Putting it together piecemeal.

So I guess my question is: Will the 770 with 4G ram be better than my Xbox 360 with my other specs?

No. I bought it from a local shop. Owner built. Was on a budget as I wasn't expecting my laptop to shit out on me. I'm just liking for it to be better than my 360 and I figure ill upgrade to an i7 in the near future and add some more ram. Will it play most games on high ish settings with just upgrading to the 770 for now?
