Don’t Buy An iPhone X, Build This Beastly Gaming PC Instead

Apple announced the next iPhone; it’s cool but, well, expensive.  Here’s a powerful gaming PC you could get for less money.

I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who balked at the £999/$999 price tag for the 64GB iPhone X and the $1,149/£1,149 price of the 256GB model.  Yes, it’s a sexy looking smartphone, with even more impressive specs than previous Apple offerings with a slightly better battery life but…ouch.

I’m a PC gamer and, as such, I couldn’t help but look at what that kind of money would buy me on the PC market.  It turns out quite a lot.

This one belongs to Terry Crews but you get the idea.

Check this build out:

READ:  Battle Fleet Ground Assault Review (BUY/WAIT/AVOID?)

If you’re looking for a monitor, keyboard and mouse to add to your new monster gaming PC, you could check out the ASUS VS248HR (£120) and get a keyboard and mouse combo (£23).  The total?  £1,129.  You can spend the remaining £20 on video games to get you started.

READ:  Wii U Modded To Be A Handheld PC (Steam Streaming, Anyone?)

So, yes, you could spend £999-£1,149 on a new iPhone, or you could spend it on a beastly gaming PC.  Or, y’know, rent and bills (I recommend the PC).
