This is a subject I have absolutely no clue about since I usually play games on consoles.
Recently I've been having trouble with my PS3 so I thought whether or not I should invest in another one or buy a PS4.
However I have an Asus tower which basically doesn't work and instead of throwing it away I thought maybe I could turn it into a gaming tower, without the need for buying new consoles, without the need to pay for online gaming, and with the fun of mods and easy game recording.
Now I have no experience with building a gaming computer, I would love to have games like GTAV and possibly newer ones as also old ones play smoothly on it, maybe recording gameplay too. I'm sure there are many guides out there but what I really want to ask is, can you build a strong pc that consumes a little?
Of course computers compared to consoles have more things to run but the PS4 consumes maybe around 150watts while normally gaming towers consume up to 250 to crazy 800watts?!
