You can try the Steam Link.

That's interesting. Thanks.

And thanks for this thread. I investigated Alienware and I'm seriously considering picking one up, but probably not until the holiday season:
1) to hopefully find a good deal on one; and
2) for Star Wars Battlefront.

It seems like the Alienware is so small, it wouldn't be too hard to move it between our office and the basement TV. But the Steam Link would save that trouble.

Re: Are Console-Like Gaming PCs A Good Choice for Sports Gamers?

Don't know why but sports games seem to feel more at home on consoles than PCs. Sports games are a major factor of what I play so it will be PS4 for me all day long. The ability of gameplay recording using the PS4 and editing software that comes with it is another draw. True it is never going to be as good as a PC for editing but it is if, like me, you want a simple and quick option then this can't be beat.

Re: Are Console-Like Gaming PCs A Good Choice for Sports Gamers?

Currently, no. NBA 2k and Fifa are really your only options at this point as far as sports games. Mlb 2k12 is kinda hard to find and it's expensive if you do find it (Not worth it). MVP 05 is even more expensive and it's honestly long past stale imo. Mods make it tolerable for a while until the nostalgia wears off. And if you've spent any time with the show in recent years then MVP is pretty much unplayable. But if baseball is what your looking for then you may as well just get a PS4. If Ea ever starts to release Madden, NBA Live and NHL on pc again, then I think it becomes worth it IF your looking to buy just for sports. If your just looking for a console alternative then yes it's worth it. Especially if your leaning towards buying an Xbox one. I got my Xbox one for christmas and if it wasn't for my kids it would never see any action. Pc gets pretty much the same games as Xbox minus a few exclusives and the huge Steam sales and library make up for that.
