Microsoft's upcoming Xbox One X console will cost $499, but when you consider that it is set to bring 4K gaming to the living room, that's quite an aggressive price.
For PC gamers, is it possible to put together a PC will similar functionality for around the same amount of money? We take a look to see if we can throw together a number of builds at multiple price points to return different results in quality and performance.

i have to agree with the article, but within one year the pc hardware will become cheaper and you will be able to have similar performance as the xb1 x. a console is thought to last some long period of time, at least 5 years, but since the release of the first xb1 less than 3 years have passed (September 2014). so no, i dont agree with the article. microsoft is able to have that price just because the bought a lot of hardware in in big chunks from the manufacturers. and u cant upgrade the console as u can upgrade the desktop pc.
anyway, that is an interesting article
