It was more a debate when PC gaming genres dominated the industry. Primary FPS, RTS, and MMOs. Console gaming was synonymous with casual gaming but now casual gaming is mobile gaming.Never understood the whole PC vs. console debate. I'd rather lay out on my couch when I want to play a video game instead of sitting in a chair in front of a monitor. I used to love gaming on a PC but got tired of the constant need to upgrade hardware..
Ill be using it for two things: 1) to play some games and 2) to run my laser refurb machine. 512 should be fine as I won't likely run more than a few games at a time. I have a 4 TB Sata drive and can get an SSD if I need to but I think 512 should be fine. This won't replace my iMac, MacBook or XBOX consoles as daily drivers. This is more just for fun. This will likely allow me to play Madden on the go or in bed and some other games I wouldn't otherwise dedicate a lot of time too. I'll still lean on my consoles for the games I usually play. I just spend an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening relaxing before and after sleeping so this allows me to get a game or something in versus just laying there scrolling Facebook, something I've grown to detest.That should be fine but the storage space is a problem. But you should be able to get by with an external SSD hard drive.
I have a 2070 max and it's one of the better price-to-performance cards out there. 4k OLED is pretty nice as well.
