So as the title says ...

I'm pretty torn apart from  upgrading my PC *getting new GPU and a better case and a new PSU* or actually buying a PS4 and slowly upgrade my PC ?
What do you guys think should i upgrade my PC massively or upgrade it slightly and buy a PS4 ? 
My main PC now is pretty good with a 970 and an i5 which if i upgraded the whole pc will most likely upgrade as well !

I'm really thinking about a PS4. It's super cheap right now but will cut out of my upgrade budget.

Never been a fan of the consoles myself, so i would upgrade the PC. How much are you realistically going to use the PS4? Is there any concole only titles you want to play? 

On the other hand, how demanding are the titles you're playing on the PC? Upgrading the GPU for games like LoL wouldn't make much sense.

Something.

not trying to PC Master race circle-jerk, but unless there are specific games you want or you have friends on PS4 why do you want one?

I 100% read the post the quoted it, The reason being is to try and determine your GPU needs  *getting new GPU and a better case and a new PSU* is what you wrote so by knowing your Monitor Resolution and Hz rate it gives a better picture as to your needs. 

Personally i would think about a new GPU, Perhaps sell the 970 and replace with 1070 ?

Personally, I'd invest some of that into bitcoin or something, but between the two options you've narrowed down to, I would choose the latter.

 

I assume there's a PS4 exclusive that you want, or perhaps have a friend group that's primarily on PS4, which would justify the cost in my mind. Also, I would avoid upgrading right now, seeing as there's still a NAND shortage, and GPUs prices have only recently started to return to normal. Of course, we're also getting close to Black Friday, so SSD/GPU prices might be reasonable by then.

Sadly i thought about bitcoin before.
But my religion is sceptical about it. *islam*
So it's a no no for me.


P.S :i know i shouldn't be talking about religions but i just wanted to explain. I respect all human beings and i'm not starting a flame war ffs :P 

And yes i'm drooling over PS exclusives. 
Such good games. Sadly no PC ports so that's that.

Mind explaining it?

Islam is taking it into the gambling area i don't know how but it's all about how you could lose and win at the same time which in Islam is considered gambling.
And gambling is in Islam officially HARAM.

https://cointelegraph.com/news/is-bitcoin-halal-how-cryptocurrency-conforms-with-islam-and-sharia

“As a payment network, Bitcoin is halal. In fact, Bitcoin goes beyond what more conventional closed banking networks offer. Unlike conventional bank networks which use private ledgers where there's no guarantee that the originator actually owns the underlying assets, Bitcoin guarantees with mathematical certainty that the originator of the transfer owns the underlying assets. Conventional banks operate using the principle of fractional reserve, which is prohibited in Islam.”


its actually more Acceptable within Islam than Modern Banks (unless you use a Sharia Account) 

Hopefully that article might shed some light for anyone wishing to find out more about it (was news to me only looked it up just now out of curiosity)

I've read this post actually before.
Yes, this says it's Halal.
But there are countless people saying it's maybe-Haram.
And they say it's like gambling.
I didn't say bitcoin itself is. it just may be.

I have more to add but it will come accross as "flame war" esque and will avoid it and do not wish to offend. 

I will say that all currency is Haram for those that follow the Sharia.

Maybe actually.

It just needs more of a detalied look.
