Xbox Live Silver (free)

Create your gamer profile: Ok, you get a unique ID to identify yourself on the Xbox Live network. Sweet.
Create and maintain a friends list: You can chat with Xbox Live friends just like any Instant messaging program.
Access To Xbox Live Marketplace: You'll be able to download game demos, skins to customize the look of Xbox live, game content, and arcade mini-games. Some downloads will be free (demos, trailers) and others will be premium (arcade games).


Xbox Live Gold (as low as $50/year)

All the Silver level benefits PLUS:

Online gameplay: You can only play games on Xbox Live if you have a Gold membership.
Exclusive Xbox Live Marketplace Content: A few extra downloadable perks for being a gold member.


Those are the basic differences between Silver and Gold.

Bottom line: to play your Xbox 360 games online, you'll have to purchase a Gold membership.

However, for PC Games it's different.

So basically, if you have an XBox360, you have to have Gold to play correctly.

If you have a PC, you only need Silver because you can play multiplayer with it. You only need to get the gold if you want to play with XBox360 users.
Dude you can still play online with silver you just cant play ranked matches. I know first hand.

Remember...for PC you can play online with Silver but on your actual 360 you have to buy gold.

You can have your 360 break and have a free repair + month of XBL, I have 3 free months!

...But nah, it's not worth it.
