Three-Way Comparison Shows PCs Slaying Consoles In Dragon Age Inquisition

soupbowl Re:Duh (227 comments)

I agree, he is talking about PC gaming in the 90's or something. I usually buy mid range video cards and I can easily skip a generation of video cards or two and still play everything with max settings. I don't play every triple AAA title for pc but I play enough to know my pc never has a problem. My wifes PC has an amd 6800 card which is almost 5 years old and it plays most games maxed out. final fantasy 14 is a pretty intense game, the 6800 plays it at max settings/1080p no problem.
