Just wondering what the best value would be: upgrade my current PC (rather outdated), or simply buy a ps3 slim (or 360 elite). Also, what does game compat look like on both, AFAIK the PC has BY FAR the most games. My rig is: AMD Athlon 64 3200+ OC: 2.2GHz 1GB DDR 400 RAM (dual channel) Winfast NF4SK8AA mobo PNY Verto 7600GS WD 160GB SATA drive DVD+/-RW 500W Xion PSU Note: I, like anyone, appreciate good graphics, but it is NOT a primary concern (well... within reason) Basically: PC: Best game lineup, but outdated CPU/RAM/mobo, underpowered PSU (for gtx260) PS3: Best features (IDK about ps3 exclusives), but games are more $$ than PC 360: Most popular (some good exclusives), everything is $$$ Any ideas? (BTW: my monitor has HDMI, but no TV)

your CPU would be a bottle neck for the GTX260 - so any major performance jump would be limited because the cpu wouldnt be able to keep up with the video card.
Best value for money out of the box is the PS3 - but on the other hand the xbox has more games...
either way the console for gaming would be a cheaper investment than upgrading your pc - you would need a new mobo / cpu / ram / video card to play the latest games at anything oyther than low settings
PC is always better Better graphics, better multiplayer, and you get to be close to the screen with a mouse!
I have a GTX 260 Black edition...Could pump out more graphics then the PS3 and 360 combined :P
