    The power thing was disheartening, but we figured it out relatively quickly. The WiFi thing was significantly more annoying, just because of all the cords and what not. I’ve got my work laptop docked and plugged into the KVM as well, so it was just a pain.

    I also ran a speed test and was only getting like 35 down through the WiFi antenna that came with either the box or the motherboard. Need to follow up on that and see if it gets better. 35 down is not enough lol

    Honestly not super worried about budget. Just need a solid pair that will get the job done and last a while. The PC games I’ve been playing so far have been Minecraft, Rocket League, and Age of Empires (I’m still playing other stuff on the Series X), so it’s not like I need the best sound in the world.

    I have hyperx for my series X, so I don’t mind getting another pair from them. I’ll give them a look. Thanks.

    I also now feel like I don’t really need a PS5. Are there PS5 exclusives that don’t come out on PC?

    At this point almost all ps5 and Xbox exclusives are only exclusive on the console. Most every game also releases on pc, which is why I can't figure out why anyone is buying consoles any more.

    Less expensive. Much more convenient.

    Can’t tell you how many times during my Lenovo laptop experience and even during the build yesterday that I thought to myself about how simpler it is to play games on my xbox series x

    Went with the Cloud Core. Was able to get the Alpha’s for close to $160 with a coupon for their website, but just didn’t seem worth it when the ones I got are only $70. I’ll also get them sooner.

    You can make a comparable PC for the price of a Series X, and you can upgrade it piecemeal as years go on instead of having to buy an entirely new system.

    But if playing games on a console is legitimately considered a 'simpler' experience, then yeah, maybe computers aren't for you past the standard word document and Pornhub visits.

    Never played it before and never really even looked into it, but downloaded it on my PS5 last night. I'm starting to get burnt out on The Show, so I'll need something else to play and I'm gonna give this a shot.

    Let me know if you ever want to run some games. I highly recommend learning how to run Wraith, Bloodhound, and Gibraltar. They’re all top tier and freely available from the beginning. Wraith is my second choice after Valkyrie.

    The Series X was the definition of plug and play.

    The laptop set up came with numerous problems and many hours of trouble shooting.

    The PC has been more straight forward, but it wasn’t without its own issues. I can definitely see how someone who isn’t familiar with computers wouldn’t want to deal with it.

    There's a PS5 bundle (new Horizon game) available on playstation's website (at least it was this morning and has been for a few days). You have to sign in with your account to be able to purchase it, but they seem to be in stock. I ordered mine a couple days ago, and it just arrived today.
