Im not sure I understand what you are saying here. How are people that are dissing the Xbox 360 and its gameplay, hurting PC gaming? Please explain...

Well, it would be more helpful to know what your PC specs are, but if your PC graphics aren't cutting it for your PC games then upgrade your PC otherwise I would get an Xbox 360. An Xbox 360 will get you access to more games, and if your friends also have one, it's a good choice. Obviously the graphics aren't as good as a PC, but last time I checked good graphics doesn't mean a game is fun/enjoyable.

Would be nice to know the pc hardware you're using

As for a XBOX 360? FORGET ABOUT IT! You'll do much better with a PS3 However, I will admit XBOX has better downloadable games

LOL it wasn't a reference to piracy, it was having to pay to play online for Xbox Live and getting more features on the PC for free

the other guy who u quoted was talking about piracy, not me I buy all my games on steam. u completely misunderstood me but I guess I should have made myself more clear but I thought it was obvious considering the price u have to pay for Live and other stuff that rips u off

overclock the amd 9600B to 2.8ghz
add to this a gtx 460 for $80 from tiger direct and a decent psu for $50 and your set

you dont need awesome RAM or CPU to play games

a phenom 1 OCd to 2.8ghz can easily eat any game - all you need is a beefy GPU and since every1 is trying to get rid of the 756mb gtx 460 - its $80 AMIR
Does the calculater work OK though or does it run a bit slow?

Just pulling ya chain dude. Respect for how little you spent!!

The difference between the 360's graphics and a gaming PC's is like the difference between a Geo and a Ferrari.

I own both and the truth of the matter is this: The graphics are worlds a part and that's about it. Most PC games now are console ports. I find myself playing more with a xbox 360 game pad on my PC then mouse and keyboard. Mods used to be a reason but now since like I mentioned most games are console ports its either impossible to mod them or that mods are junk.

If you are a graphics "......" and want to play the latest and greatest at the highest visual quality possible you need a pc and an expensive one at that. If you can deal with decent graphics and the same game play experience then just get a console.

The only reason I have a PC is because I play simulators. Being able to play the rest of the games is icing on the cake yes....but again if I didn't play sim's I wouldn't have spent as much as I have.

The xbox 360 is pretty cool, the achievements gives replay value and its nice to have a friends list all in one area instead of have twenty friends on steam, thirty friends on xfire ect..., The other good and bad part about the xbox 360 is most people have a MIC, so you get more communication during online gaming. The down side? You get more communications during online gaming lol.

Since you are a looking to upgrade I think actually putting down your PC specs would be helpful. People will then be able to tell you if you just need a 300-500 graphics card or if you are looking at a system overhaul.
