Well to me it sucks ass

If u have a gd internet connection Xbox for sure.

Pc brings to many problems and too many upgrades.

Get the 360, upgrade your pc later.....as long as your processor is over 2 ghz and you have over a gig of ram you should be okay, the only thing you should change if you want is your graphics card.

Personal Computer seems to be the more logical choice. You're bound to need a PC anyway and I always thought Game Consoles were a waste of money.

I'd argue, but you've shown time and time again what an idiot you are and how you're arguments always fall apart once you try to prove them.

Probably a PC if you like FPS. With any luck, gears of war will come out on PC. It's too good a game, like the first halo, for it just to be left on a single format.

Try out an Xbox and see what you think. if you like it, then go for it. If not, stick with your PC. Both are very respectable machines for games.

Please don't become another 360 fanboy though, there are enough as it is :P

Personaly i think PC always has better games and online play, plus if you have an x box 360 you might become an x box fan boy and no1 likes them
#21
The point is, he already has a PC, why upgrade it?
If he wants to use the net or anything his PC seems fine, hell 2GB RAM?! I've got 512 MB and I'm doing fine.

It also depends on what kind of games you play: strategy then PC , FPS then 360..

to thread starter - If you have a good pc already get the 360 then use the media link to link them together, it's really good, sharing media on both systems, the 360 is basically a pc anyway.

You do know you can use *shock horror* controllers on a PC?

and that you can get Monitors that are stupidly big.

ye, its pc for me! i just gota keep praying that gears of war comes out on it :P acordin to some guy from microsoft they MAY do it, i exoect they will coz when they reliesed halo on pc it sold way more copies than the xbox version did. jus one last thing GRAPHICS! i i do what i suggested, thats 2gb ram, 512mb or higher graphics card, duel core 2.4ghz or faster procesor with the graphics be able to be better than 360?, because aparently with that spec i should be able to run crysis on high if not full and the graphics are amazing, and so are the physics in it.

As long as you have a HD ready monitor and a powerful enough system, the graphics comparisson to any of the new systems shouldn't be an issue.

Buy a new graphics card cheaper than a 360 and you'll have a very decent computer and it'll look much nicer than a 360. If your mother board supports PCI express I would go for something like this: http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/119679


This man speaks the truth. Geforce make fantastic graphics cards. theres one inbuilt into my laptop and i love it.

What are you going to argue, that I DON'T actually think that playing on a pc sucks ass?

tbh. even though u can get better graphics on PC i think the xbox is still a better bet, because inevitably you will just end up having to upgrade your graphics card every year/year and a half to keep up with the latest games. i bought an ATI Radeon X600 about a year and a half ago and back then it was a pretty high spec card. now, it plays very few recently released games such as graw and rainbow six vegas. i doubt a new console will be released for at least another decade and developers are always finding new ways to utilise a certain console's graphics capabilities. im no xbox fanboy but i just get a little pissed off at having to upgrade my graphics card all the time and thats why i would go for an xbox 360.
#36
Well you can plug the 360 controller into a PC's usb port. Come vista, games like shadowrun and a few other games will be able to play on live between PC and 360. So if you've got a really high end computer, you'll be able to make those games look better than the 360 could, but you won't have nearly as many choices of games. (for live at least)

wtf?! I don't even have half of that...

and my games don't lag... you must be doing it wrong

I recommend the PC, it's cheaper in the long run and you can do much more with it, and always add more components, like joysticks, steering wheels that are cheaper than the 360's equivalents
