Well, If you just want 1080p gaining then you might was well get an iPad.
With Retina display and build in UPS for power outages.
Touch screen and everything you need.

You can’t build a PC with iPad specs for the price of an iPad. $300

But can the ipad play crisis?

It can play allot of games.
They have some similar to crisis.

I could not live with out my iPad.
I am so hooked on this thing.
I tried to get rid of it before but I just keep going out and buying another one.

I've owned 2 tablets and all of them have become forgotten within a month. If you have a PC and a smart TV tablets are useless. I don't even consider buying tablets or laptops anymore Iknow they will just gather dust for me, I have no specific need for either.

I don't consider the kinds of "Games" you can get for a tablet to be games. There are very few real indepth experiences on mobile platforms.

Well tablets are good for one thing. Browsing the web while you poop.

You need to upgrade your compulsions. Buy more retro gear!

All hail the Great Capacitor Brand Finder

My advice if you want to save money is just buy a really cheap ddr3 era bundle off ebay.
Myself I got an i7-4790k bundled with memory and motherboard, motherboard has a m.2 and it only cost me £250.
Handed down my fx-8350 machine with rx480 to a friend for free (also which i got in a bundle for £200 some years back on ebay), after seeing him struggle to play WoW and battlefield 5 on his 1030 GT, and his broken hardware that wouldn't let me overclock his FX-6300, wouldn't even boot with 1mhz overclock; never found out what's up with that as he's non-tech savvy and didn't like me tinkering with his PC which he was convinced I was going to break, even though I hadn't done any voltage tweaks...
Pretty funny though how after I gave him the fx-8350 machine, I didn't tell him it was on overclocked settings, all cores 4.6Ghz on a surprisingly low voltage, the temps idle and loaded are fantastic with my old thermalright 120 ultra heatsink! I wonder if he has worked out it's overclocked... probably not!
Worked out in the end because he was bro enough to give me 2 of his old gpus as payment. Got around selling those for £60, they were hd 7770 1gb and a r7 250 4gb (DDR3 eeewwww), made me cringe that those were his gaming gpus! He should've given me his gt 1030 to sell also tbh! 😠 😠 😠
And that's the end of my story, sorry I suffer from insomnia, going to play some with my retro pcs now.

P4SCE mobo/prescott p4 3ghz/4gb ddr1 in dual channel voodoo 3000 PCI @187mhz
3dfx ref. drivers / win98se with memory patch to boot with 4gb(1gb used)
