I was wondering if anyone had an idea of what components it would take to make a pc that would get Xbox 360ish performance. I know it was really optimized, so based on the actual result. I don't want a 100,000 dollar pc, something that could run flight sim or Modern Warfare and look like it's on a 360. Thanks!
About $600 will get you a reasonable gaming computer for 1080 resolution gaming.
Ryzen 5 and a nVidia 1650 Super are good cheaper parts for the bits to start with. If you are really strapped for money then an Intel Core i3-10100 would be OK to get.
