Sorry to ruin the mood everyone.
Can anyone guide to choose pc and specifications for a beginner? Yes literally a beginner.
Also for the above scenario, is Playstation 4 or equivalent better? Thanks in advance!
Again sorry to ruin the party...
What's your budget? And are you looking for a pre-built computer? Or do you want to build one?
If you're building one to match or exceed a console, here's some important info and their cost
if so, you're going to want a minimum of 6 GB RAM, but most likely 8 gbs.
You can get a 2x4 set up for 40 USD at Newegg:
Anything GTX950 or higher is going to give you superior graphics to consoles - the GTX950 goes for about 160 USD:
You'll need a PSU with a minimum of 200w overhead to accommodate for other components.
I use something similar to this one, but so long as you know the power requirements of your GPU + 200, you should be able to find the right one for you.
For the processor, to get console quality performance you're going to need at least an i5 (possibly a late gen i3 if your VRAM and RAM or capable enough), but more likely an i7.
Mid-model i5s, 4000 series, run for about 200 USD.
You'll also want cooling systems, a motherboard if you bought your processor without one - be mindful of the chipset of your CPU and CPU or you could end up buying parts that don't find, and you'll need a tower.
If this seems intimidating, building a computer usually is for a novice. I'd recommend buying a prebuilt instead and would be happy to help you find one within your budget.
That might as well be Latin to me !
In fact it is Latin to me !
One of CP Professors Beat you here. I am not exactly sure how much does he have but i m sure as heck its 512+GB ram , and he told us about half a dozen things he uses that for which effectively went over our heads.Have 96 GB in my workstation with 2x Xeon 5670 six-cores running Linux.
When I run my little application (it runs for an hour and a half) it generates about
60 GB of data, so I thought a ramdisk would be nice.
It turned out that the ramdisk only shaved a minute from the run time compared to a 24GB system.
2 x 15k RPM SAS disks in a striped RAID configuration gives the same performance as an SSD.
What application you run which needs so much hardware?
Don't speak geek Armstrong?
Try not to overthink it too much, lest you overclock your brain and burst into flames.
Here, they make cooling devices for just such an occasion:
I can't even install Windows on my PC and I had a really....really hard time downloading and playing a game on Steam !
I know I am an ignoramus !

State of the art facial recognition system maybe :p

Step 6: foolishly challenge a sassy Norwegian lass to a game and get destroyed.
Nah, you're just different. Tech isn't for everyone and you'd be surprised to know just how many young people in advanced nations are still really, really bad with computers.
And I am somewhat old-fashioned as well; somehow opening the door for a lady isn't considered the gentlemanly thing to do anymore either !
I was practically scolded by a feminist friend of mine when I did that....!
