    Seriously, biggest waste of money I have right now, and ever had, my gaming PC.

    RTX 2080, 64gb RAM, 5TB HDD (5x 1TB WD Black), 1TB SSD NVMe, AMD Ryzen 7 3800x cpu, Noctua NH-D15 SSO2 D-Type cooler, MSI MPG X570 Gaming Plus motherboard, Noctua NF-F12 fans all over the case, and I forgot what I have as a PSU, I know it's some Gold rated one. The case? The beastly Thermaltake Tower 900. Yes I know, The Tower 900 is better suited for liquid cooling, but I went with air cooling because I prefer the style and color of Noctua fans. Monitor is a $600 Acer Predator XB1, 27inch, 1440p, 144hz, 1ms, G-Sync.

    Why is it a waste of money? I don't even use it. I have a $1300 Dell all-in-one PC which I keep in my living room, where I always am, so it's my primary PC. I only go into my bedroom (where my gaming PC is) to use the bed, or do exercise on my free standing pull-up/chin-up/leg rise/dip station. The worst part of it is that I moved the nearly $3k gaming PC away to another corner, disconnected, to make room for weight training equipment, which totals around $400. Yeah, I moved away $3k worth of of stuff, to make room for $400 worth of stuff. I don't even know if it's really $3k, it's probably less. The most expensive stuff was the monitor, the GPU, and the CPU. The case cost like $270 iirc, I forgot.

    But yeah, I don't use it. I might as well sell it. It would be less than what I paid for. But at least i'll get something back. I use my PS4 Pro in my living room for gaming.
    That's a nice rig bro, i'd love to take it myself, but i can't justify that kind of ££ when i'd hardly use it.

    You'll be able to get rid of it any time you want tho, if it's the right price someone will snap your hand off.

    Console gaming is more expensive than pc gaming.

    Let's say you buy an rtx 2080 for 700 dollars, then after 3 years, you sell it for 500 dollars. That's 200 dollars. And all the games are free on pc since you can just torrent them.

    or

    You can buy a ps5 for 600-700 dollars. Within 3 years, the price will plummet, and you'll sell it for about 300 dollars. That's 400 lost.

    and if you buy 30 games, at an average of 40 dollars each, that's 1.2k


    200 dollars vs 1,600 dollars.

    Also to get a 4k gaming ready pc is not that expensive. You don't have to spend more than 1300. Just get a barebones set up and an rtx card.

    People who are spending more than 1500 to get a 4k ready gaming pc have no idea what they're doing.

    Less than 2k, plus pc gaming pays for itself since you can pirate everything.

    Playing a console game, and playing the maximal high end graphical experience is the difference between driving a civic and a supercharged lambo.
