    A 950 is what I would consider one of the lowest end cards that should be used in a gaming PC TBH, much less and you might as well just go with a integrated card.

    Well, the Radeon 300-series cards are the better choice at the moment anyway, but yeah, kinda. The best concurrent for the 950 is the R7 370. The R7 360 and probably even R7 350 are still a good bit better than integrated. But the R7 340 is crap and should be dicontinued in the next generation. Even most Radeon R5 are better, and those aren't a big improvement over anything. If you don't have integrated graphics, like on an AMD chip, you should rather get an old used card...

    Really the only action game I play is GTA V but me and most of my friends actually like nice and calm simulators or racers, like Forza, Mario Kart, BeamNG, and
    im saying it only has 8 GB when most have like 12-32

    8GB is enough for most things. Question is, what CPU do you have?

    What graphics cards have 32 GB of VRAM exactly?

    What? No. The GTX 970 is one of the most common cards available, according to UserBenchmark (Source sorted by Market Share). It has 7.8% of the market. The 950 has only 1%.
    What?
    None, well, besides true compute cards, which really aren't graphics cards. He's probably confused.

    Thats a pretty good PC, but I prefer 16gigs of RAM since my PC with 8gigs lags behind on somethings.

    Consoles are meant to set a generic standard for games so you don't have to worry about computer specs. Also to make multiplayer same for evry1

    An awfully low generic standard which has been holding graphics back for years. Might as well use mid-range PC specs as a standard, which is what most PC games do anyway.

    Not sure what you're talking about here, online PC games can be played on any PC, PS/XB crossplay is not a thing for 99% of games.

    Last gen consoles (PS3/X360) at least offered pretty good hardware (at time of release, they were obsolete by 2011) for a very low price. PS3 had free online play as well. The PS4 and XB1 have literally zero redeeming qualities, they couldn't run shit from the moment they were released and you can actually build a better spec PC for the same price.

    IMO graphics being held back is very good for the gaming industry as it means less time and therefor money is spent on just making a game look pretty and it makes it allows modelers to make more models in the same amount of time so games can have more diverse content and more of it... Unfortunately because graphics are easier to market than actual gameplay depth companies just focus on graphics anyways at the expense of render distance. I just wish the next gen consoles had better CPUs
    He means that everyone is on the same hardware so everyone experiences equal amounts of lag and there's nothing you can do about it... at least with computers you can upgrade components

    They're supposed to be a quick alternative in general. No thinking required, you just go out and buy it. And you just plug it in and play pretty much.

    I'm not seeing the relevance to the above discussion when ultimately it comes down to this:


    THE CONSOLES ARE NOT POWERFUL ENOUGH TO RUN BEAMNG

    Can you say that again with explosions in the background?

    Yeah. They were never intended much for simulators (and technically as was stated in a different thread, this is not an efficient simulator, it's an easy to make feature-packed sort of engine, not an efficient one that runs very, very well...) I mean, if you want to use Microsoft Flight Simulator X, you wouldn't run it on a console, you'd run it on a computer that has USB inputs and other inputs for a yoke, pedals, control panel perhaps, triple monitors, throttle/mixture/prop controls, etc. (I don't have that.. I have a single monitor and another one for like information to be displayed on such as what speed to pull up at, etc. for aircraft I don't know about and a USB yoke/pedals combo thing... I'm not rich... I don't have one of these...)

    But that doesn't make them bad. They have their own time to shine. Also, forgot to mention, they're TINY. ABSOLUTELY TINY.... You could fit like 6 of those consoles in the average computer case if you remove any internal drive bays and everything...

    EDIT: They're quiet too. That's one reason why they're not crazy powerful. They try to give you the quietest experience of power as possible which makes it hard to build well. My computer's silent other than a very slight noise of the fans and the hard drives, and it's hard to build it this quiet. The more power, the more heat, the more noise when expelling that heat. So the only option is to scale down the power.

    And they still run at 70-80C. Unacceptable IMO.

    I actually don't own a modern console (I have a Wii and a DSi...) so I can't respond to that, but both the Wii and DSi run very cool and quiet...

    However, according to my research online, you are very wrong as the XBox One seems to run at around 50C while playing games... And the PS4 is the same. If those are your own temperatures, seriously get the console checked out because that's abnormally hot... It's still technically safe, but abnormally hot....

    I was basing it off of last generation consoles. Nintendo seems really keep the power low enough to keep temps down, which is pretty cool.
