it's*

How are those sub-par textures on the 360? Paying money every month for XBL on top of a net connection must be pretty awesome, huh? I want to watch my blu-rays on my 360... oh wait...

So one day you decide to try to change the world by telling people to destroy their computers (give me a sec while I laugh) and go out and buy an Xbox 360. Should NASA and the Army also do this or is this wise advice only for the common? By the way Xbox--> Microsoft......does that ring a bell in your head?

Yes, everyone should have a gaming appliance that can't do much else. Halo 3 FTW.

Pc gaming is far superior in every way. From graphics to modification and sound too. The more cash you can sink into it the better it is. Try running two GeForce GTX 590 in quad SLI.

lol what a troll, this guy obviously has never seen any pc game run on full high/ultra settings, do yourself a favor and find a video comparing crysis 2 on xbox 360 vs pc and you will see PC will always be better than consoles, when did the xbox 360 come out? oh yeah that's right, your xbox 360 is obsolete

Why do we have to destroy our computers? Couldn't we have a computer and an Xbox 360? I have a computer and a PS3. In the same room, actually.

I saw somewhere that somebody had modded an Xbox into thier computer.

There are a few people that modded both the 360, wii, and ps3 into their PC case. It ran all four systems.

I've also seen a 360 modded into a laptop. Some people come up with some really cool ideas.

"Paying money every month for XBL on top of a net connection must be pretty awesome, huh?

really dude? think about just how dumb that is...how much more do computers cost? I dont agree with the OP at all, but get real. an extra 50dollars a year? Even buying a new computer every 5years that is moderatly decent at 1k dollars, is still more costly than this.

Which is the appeal of your XBox PS3 and Wii. You dont need to constantly upgrade it.

Obvious console fanboy is obvious. You can build a gaming computer on a $300-400 budget that plays games in the same resolution as the consoles.

A nice gaming computer would set you back about $600-700, and you'll get a lot more out of that then a console. This discussion has been beaten to death.

building stuff is easy to a lot of people, just as many people dont know how. the parts, what is better, what it means. I play PC games...but I am not the only one who has no clue how to build PC's.

It's not that hard actually and newegg has decent tutorials. Just make sure the motherboard and chipset are compatible. Like if you want to use a sandy bridge intel chip make sure both the motherboard and the intel chip say LGA 1155.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=LGA+1155&x=0&y=0
Just by typing LGA 1155 you get all that. Read the different chipsets, choose one and many different types of related products will show up. Read each of the motherboards and decide. Building a computer isn't hard. The instructions booklet help a ton and show you what to do, especially when each instruction guides help each other out. The hardest parts are cable managing and installing the drivers, but that's why they bring discs with all the needed basic components. Then you update the drivers. A good built pc can last for years, but you don't need to upgrade that much unless you decide you want a whole new chipset.

I didn't know how to build a computer, but once I got into it, it was easy. Took me 3 hours or so since I had to manage the cable wirings. The 600t case is worth it for cable managing.

So, you can't spend 15 minutes researching a how to guide or watch a youtube video?

I know several people that can't build a tower out of legos that put together their own PCs and haven't had any issues in just the past 6 months.

So yes, everyone knows how to build computers. They just have some mental block that states they can't. How hard is it to plug a cable into the only place on a motherboard it could go? Everything these days is labeled so easily you'd be hard pressed to mess it up.

The only thing you have to do is be mindful of static electricity, everything else is a breeze. With the availability of bare bones kits these days they only choices you have to make are which kit to buy and which video card to install. It's almost a no-brainer.

Building them before plug and play was time consuming and required more knowledge of the parts. Working with commands in DOS was always a blast.

When I first was told about building one, I freaked out. That was in 2009 and I was nervous about not knowing what to do. Two years later I said, I want to build my own computer. I want to play the old republic. I was told by my friends how easy it was. I thought they were geniuses but in fact, all it takes is reading and making sure of compatible components. Then it takes patience and not a lot of force. I laugh at it now, at how scared I was back then. You can do anything you set your mind to.

I agree. I always thought building a PC would be impossible. I built my first one around 2008 or so, and just upgraded a few parts a couple months back. I figure I'll be set about 4 years with my current rig, and IF I have to upgrade I'll just grab another video card for about $100.

Sometimes its cheaper to buy a built ready computer, especially for offices. Since they're done for offices they cut down on the parts needed and put the cheapest possible material. Check dell.com and you won't see any pc with a K intel chipset (k =unlocked for overclocking). You also don't know what type of motherboard it will be and what spaces are capable of upgrading. For my job I have a dell vostro slim. While it at home, I have a corsair 600t white with an asus z68 v pro motherboard that can handle 2 graphics card for sli mode.

Do it yourself can be hard, but it is cheaper when it comes to labor cost and also you can make sure the parts have up to 3 years with warranty. When you buy a computer, the company makes their money on accidental warranties and extended warranties and services. Do note, when you buy a built computer, you only have 1 year of warranty, costco gives you two. So you have to pay extra for more warranty, otherwise, you'll be ripped off by the company. Or sometimes, the company won't fix it at all.
