Buying an Xbox One X vs Gaming PC Build [4K 60FPS]

what’s going on everyone this is DOM and with the launch of the Xbox one x we are getting 4k gaming running at 60 frames per second which is a lot to brag about especially at that $500 price point and well because of this I decided to build something comparable in the PC realm that would not only have a console like experience but also that same 4k 60 gaming that we’re getting on the One X and how much do you actually have to spend to do something like this well meet flexbox so there are obviously many different routes you can go with a gaming PC like this but we are limited to the size in the case that I chose which is the fractal design node – OH – this is a very compact case which nearly matches the form factor of the original Xbox one and it includes an integrated 450 watt SFX power supply as far as the processor inside of this thing I decided to go with the Intel 7700 K and the gigabyte V 270 and Wi-Fi motherboard because if I was a nice pair and having integrated Wi-Fi is definitely a good thing if you’re trying to get that console like experience I also threw in a 16 gigabyte kit of course tears vengeance lpx 3000 megahertz ram and I had a 240 gigabyte SSD from Kingston and a 1 terabyte hard drive as far as the GPU goes there are a couple of different options you can go with to achieve that same 4k 60 experience I decided to go with the GTX 1080 but you could also opt for a 1070 but we’ll talk about the differences between those two in a little bit now to keep things on the same level as a console I’m utilizing the Xbox one controller because well it pairs up with the dongle connects to the PC and works with just about every game now I know some of you are going to pull your hair out because I’m using a wireless mouse and keyboard combo thing from Logitech but really this is a console experience if you want to plug in a keyboard and mouse feel free to do so and it’ll work just as well as you’d expect for in-game chat I’m actually using the Corsair void wireless RGB headset which I liked a lot and links to everything I mentioned in this video will be below in the description it’s also important to note that I’m not doing any overclocking in this build because of how small the cases and how limited the cooling is inside of that so I just didn’t feel like it was necessary either to achieve what we’re trying to do here but regardless of some of those other details and the overclocking can this thing do what the Xbox 1x will do well the simple answer is yes and it looks damn good doing it as far as Geekbench goes we have a single core score or of five thousand four hundred and four and a multi-core score of eighteen thousand one hundred and thirty-eight moving along to the fire strike benchmark flexbox scored fourteen thousand nine hundred and forty two but as far as gaming goes well this thing is a beast I was easily able to run Grand Theft Auto 5 at 4k with a constant 60 frames per second and that’s at normal setting I took it a step even further and bump some things up between normal high and very high and it still performed flawlessly surprisingly I was able to do just about the same with the 1070 as well with a few tweaking in the settings a little bit below average moving along to rise of the Tomb Raider this one was a little bit different as I had to do some tweaking between low and medium settings to get a constant 60 frames per second at 4k resolution the 1070 just couldn’t hang in Tomb Raider and I had to bump the settings all the way down to lowest and that just kind of justifies me putting a 1080 in this bill because I like to have the extra Headroom but overall in my opinion whether you’re playing at low medium or normal settings on flex locks it’s going to look mild better than the 1x well at 4k 60 of course we’ll find out for sure soon enough and if you’d like to see a comparison between the xbox 1x and flexbox be sure to leave this video a thumbs up and drop a comment below but if you want to build a gaming pc that can perform comparably to this console your going to have to pay around $1,200 and that’s actually just with 8 gigabytes of RAM and the 1070 GPU if you want to bump it up to the 1080 and 16 gigabytes of RAM you’re looking to pay somewhere around the $1600 range so what the 1x be $500 price point is very impressive but it depends on the quality of gaming that you want obviously if you go with something like this well you’re losing out on the native Xbox gaming experience and what Xbox Live has to offer but you’re gaining a full on gaming PC and a media center because it’ll work pretty good for one of those two but let me know which one you would choose the Xbox one x or flex box drop a comment with your opinion
