Somehow, I doubt that was the answer OP was looking for.

But you do make a valid point. The cheapest system that can play a PC game also available on consoles likely is the console version.

Yup. A 360 can be had for around 200 bucks USD, less if purchased used or aftermarket. That same amount will buy a graphics card that can just barely play the game.

With my Phenom II and 550 TI I can play 1280x1024 @ ultra settings just fine, about 50FPS on average. So I'll use that as a guide. And I can probably get you a better video card than mine, (I'm swapping out my 550TI myself soon for something better)

CPU- Phenom II 965 $110

Mobo- Asrock Extreme 3 970- $85

RAM- G.Skil Value series 8gb- $40

Video card- Sapphire 6870 $160

Price doesn't include monitor, OS, keyboard, mouse or hard drive.

Hard drive will cost you another 60-100, Windows7 runs about $100, mouse and keyboard, maybe $20 each for decent ones?
