          I'd like to see the 3600 instead of 3600X, it does say 65W vs 95W, you'd think the difference would be fairly significant.

            First thing I did when bulid my PC was undervolt the i7-6700k. Runs 30ºC idle, 57ºC load at stock 4.2GHz, rock stable and silent. Also game at max 60 FPS. There is hardly any gain in more.

                          can you be the first to compare FX9590 to 3800x? why no one compares old tech to new tech to see how far we improved in CPU. I want to see fx9590 with 5700xt or 2080ti vs 3800x with the same graphic cards and same amount of ram. if the rams are ddr3 vs ddr4 due to 2006 technology of fx9590 its ok. do some modern and old gaming comparisons. I want to see just how far a graphic upgrade could get me and others with old systems would take us today. please and thank you.

                                You should save more energy with LED 1080p monitor, perhaps smaller 22" monitor. you can still game with it, and 22" needs less LED light compared to bigger 24" LED monitor. Going for 4K monitor is asking for more power btw. And there are (BeQuiet) fanless power supply's to save more power. And how about compare it with laptop? Laptops use different design and is build to save power, due smaller cooling system compared to PC, also it has mobile type CPU. sometimes with mobile GPU. Then we know which is less power consuming.

                                  Correct me if I'm wrong but on consoles even if you set resolution to HD it still renders the game at 4K so considering this fact the Xbox is really capable at rendering games at 4K at that power draw and maybe, just maybe it could affect the final results if games were rendered at 4K on the PC side.

                                      Well, below around700mV Silicon transistors just won't switch on. That's where the floor comes from, it's a fundamental property of the material, not related to frequency/frequency stability at low voltages.

                                                  HDR means 10bits per pixel. Processing more bits costs more processing power. When HDR is off your GPU is in essence processing only 24 bit color.

                                                        Uh, it is not hard to build a rig more efficient than a console, the problems comes at doing for the same price as the console. Your power supply cost half of what a console went for and at the cost of what they are going for now. Virtually anyone with 1500$ to spend could build a rig better than a console.

Location/energy price is also a somewhat variable factor. I would do the math myself but I don't wanna lookup how much they spent on each PC part.

Your efficient PC was probably twice the cost and size of the console. Do a Mini ITX gaming rig that will do 60 fps in the size of a console and keep the costs close to that magic $499 US.
