Granted from your system spec it looks like you have a decent enough gaming rig. So going with the ps3 for all its media functionality and its gaming pedigree is also a good choice ( especially for bluray lol )
ya M$ has great support. JUST DONT PUT THE INTERCOOLER ON IT VOIDS YOUR WARRENTY!!! GET A ELITE TOO. anyways i sent my elite in cuz it got E74 gpu failure. ITs a falcon and they sent me a brand new non refurbished Xbox 360 Elite Falcon back. Xbox 360 FTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PS3 Epic Fail

The chip for the 360 is accually almost to the R600 performance and picture quality.

If you examine the performance of the cards both consoles use as a base for their chipset then you're right the 1900 does have the advantage but infact other aspects of both consoles performances make that technicality obsolete when comparing them. Many people assume the 360 has better graphics because their games are easier to develop and port. Therefore some games like fallout appear to look better on 360. When infact its quite simply a case of finding the power in the PS3. When one developer succeeds they get excellent results. Naughtydog are probably at the forefront of graphics with the PS3. Uncharted's presentation is something I cant honestly say I've not seen in a similar way on the 360. Burnout paradise was developed from the PS3 from the ground up then ported to the 360 and it and performs better on the PS3. On the contrary gears of war looks amazing on the 360. As does games like mass effect. But it is absolutely possibly to achieve that with the PS3 if a developer were to take the time and effort to do it properly. But when a game is developed side by side for both consoles. Like for example the call of duty series. There is absolutely no graphical advantage on either console. Both will boast their chipset exceeds the other's but in reality neither can out perform each other. Its all down to how the developer makes use of it in their games.

I'm not trying to troll (I love Microsoft) but you do NOT want the headaches that 360 hardware problems bring.

I'm on my third (after 2 RRODS) and now I'm having disc drive troubles, which isn't covered by the warranty. Everyone on my floor's 360 either makes grinding noises, freezes, RRODs, or in one case, inverted all the graphics' colors then died a week later. Plus most "exclusives" come out on all systems eventually...

I have had 3 xbox 360s and i traded one in, bought one from friend and another one like 6 months ago. I dont have any now, but i do have a ps3. My third 360 died after 3 weeks since the purchase date. Ps3 is free online, looks better, blue ray, and has nice games imo compared to the games on xbox that tools play.
