I am actually surprised that you thought you would find support for such an idea at a computer enthusiast's forum!
That's like going to a meeting of the local branch of the Ferrari Club and asking people if they don't agree that bicycles are so much better than cars...
Anyway, I understand your reasons for thinking so and must say that PC gaming is just not for everyone.
Why? Well, there's over 60 posts that can explain that much better that I would care to.
Don't like it? Don't bother yourself.
Console is way cheaper and much more accessible.
There's no shame into descending from the upper echelons of PC gaming and mingling again with the uncouth plebes of console gamers
(that's obviously a lame classist-joke, I don't really think like that)
Oh, and as graphic cards go, you will have a much easier time (software-wise) with nvidia than with ATI/AMD.
Not because of the quality or any such thing but because nvidia has a stronger grip on the gaming industry and, therefore, it is generally able to "influence and take advantage" of game studios and publishers more effectively than AMD. Sad but true.
