I like PC gaming for single player games for the better visuals and better frame rates. I use a controller and plasma hooked up to the pc for my games though. It baically becomes a beefy console. I still like the xbox for most multi player games because I do not enjoy using a mouse and keyboard. If you try use a controller and go up against other players that are using a mouse and keyboard, more often than not you will lose. So I do not regret building my gaming pc but I also do not play muti player on it much at all besides a few co op games here and there. I do not like competitive play on PC because I am no good at it. The learning curve is very steep to learn how to play games competitively on pc, too steep to be enjoyable for me. Now about splinter cell, I can't wait to play spies vs Mercs again, it was awesome on original xbox.
