BIG Screen HDTV or New comp?

Recommended Posts

DarkRogue    0

Hey all im faced with the decisions to either buy a 53inch BigScreen TV for my Bday/Xmas Present. or a new AMD64 FX-55 computer system.

the problem i have is the system i am using now which is a little older can play HL2 and Doom 3 with a decent amount of ease and i figure waiting another year for a comp isnt that bad..

but does anyone know if i should blow the wad of cash on lastest greatest computer system only to possibly find that within a years time there is something 10 times better than what i have, or should i get the sweet TV and watch DVD's and play PS2 Games and have that last me a good 5-6years??

You could probably update your computer instead of getting a new one. Then you could get more.

nahh HDTV LCD will do him well but just so he knows Playstation 2 wont gain to mutch more quality on an HDTv since it dosant support and or games dont support HDTV and it i s hard to find a Compnant video cables for Ps2. now if he had an Xbox he could buy the HighDef Pack and get full 1080i Resolution plus some Xbox games support High Def. Plus movies

Tv. Right now is not the right time to buy a computer.

If you can, don't buy anything and save your money.

save for a year and buy an LCD tv.

Tv - Get a nice 36" hd tv and invest the rest or save it.

oled tvs aren't too far off and you sould like someone that always wants the latest and greatest.

We all know that waiting will reward you with newer and cheaper products so I say wait on both and just update the comp for now.
