    It's actually pretty impressive the kind of games you can play on an integrated gpu these days, at least on the AMD chips. 2-3 years ago you couldn't play on built in gpus that came with the cpu. And you still can't on Intel chips, but the Ryzen 3 2200G, 2400G, 3200G, and 3400G are actually pretty good if you play on low settings and sometimes 720p, but where they really excel is for making small emulation machines. I was really impressed to see that it can run Zelda Breath of the Wild as well as a Wii U can.

    That"s pretty interesting. I might have to give it a shot, haven't played BOTW yet. And I'll be good with the GameCube and PS1 library for a good while, not big into modern games besides game set in historical settings. So would you recommend any prebuilt for AAA gaming or would that have to be a build your own?

    What does that system you're looking at cost? I'd almost always advocate building your own .

    I was just wondering in general. I don't want to spend 500+ on a console when I only play like 2-3 games on it and barely use it. I was thinking of getting a PC which I use a lot more.

    Well if you do buy a PC don't expect it to be able to game nearly as well as that $500 PS5 or XBox Series X. It seriously costs around $1200+ if you want to outperform them. You can do a Ryzen 3 2200G build with 16GB of RAM and a 500GB SSD for around $430, and that will run emulators beautifully, while for AAA games like AC Origins or RDR2 you'd be looking at 720p low, 30 fps. Don't get me wrong, games like Rocket League or Overwatch should be doable at 1080p60 though. Though I am also assuming you pirate Windows. If you want a legit copy PCWorld currently has a promotion with Windows 10 retail (so it can be transferred to a new PC in the future) for $40.

    If you want something that can play RDR2 at around 1080p, 60 fps with setting tweaks you're looking at probably around $600, maybe $550. If you go to $700 to $800 you can probably build something that should outperform the rumored lower end XBox Series S and that will play anything out there right now at 1080p 60 fps with minimal, if any, settings tweaks. If you want PS5 level though the graphics card alone is $500, and if you want an XBox Series X level system you're talking about $700 just for the graphics card. Though PS5 and XBox Series X will be targeting 4k, while the rumored XBox Series S should be 1080p.
