Hey all. I have a situation. I ordered an Xbox 360 from Gamecrazy and they said that they would get some more in January and said they would call as soon as they hit the door, but I'm kinda having second thoughts. I'm perty sure I can take my money out of my GC account (all 400 buckaronnies). If I go ahead and get Computer upgrades which include a 17" LCD Monitor and a GeForce 6600 agp 256mb graphics card I would be playing more games sooner, but if I get the Xbox 360, I'll know that I'll get next-gen, fast-paced gaming and more. I CAN'T DECIDE!!!!!!! HELP O POWERFUL GAMING FORUMS!

Considering the best games on the 360 are going to be out on PC and the console to get is the PS3 best to upgrade and wait till PS3 comes out for your console needs. I was in similar situation to you, realised getting a 360 would be waste of money.

XBOX 360....I am a PC man, but you should defenatly get the 360.

Why? because a 6600GT will NOT power any new games well enough to satisfy you. The 360 will have the best graphics you can possibly get without buying a 3 grand PC. Your call though.

XBox 360's price will plummet after a few months. It's not like it'll be going anywhere, so you may as well wait. You have a PC now, and if it's performing badly enough for you to consider an upgrade, then that's an immediate priority. And it'll only get worse the longer you put it off, unlike the XBox 360 which may actually get better if you wait, if they release a version with those technical problems solved, or even with better HDTV support (I don't know much about them, but I understand that HDTV on 360 isn't what it was expected to be in current models).

And of course, any XBox 360 games worth playing will be out on PC eventually anyway.

Good graphics suck if your processer can't handle them. Halo 3 will also be on the 360 soon. But I think that i'd still go for the PC unless you have a crapy processer.

It just what Matt said, wait until price comes down for the console, get your PC upgraded. PC parts are pretty cheap for a decent upgrade.

You should upgrade your PC instead, computers are a way of life there used everyday game consoles are just for lesuire you should wait for a 360 sometime later in the new year.
