    Xbox 360, no question. PC's are meant to do a LOT of things, gaming just being one of them. It must do word processing, handle an operating system, be highly adaptable, run god knows how many different languages and protocols... etc etc. The xbox 360 is made ONLY for games thus it will blow away almost any computer.

    Take a look at this thread to see why completely faithful emulation of modern consoles on a PC requires a high-end gaming rig.

    You're probably talking about ... top end dual SLI 7800GTX's and dual cores and raptors and insane stuff like that. I mean you're asking for a tow-truck that could outdo a ferrari while at the same time still being able to haul cars all over the place....

    In my opinion, Xbox prevails over your computer for gaming purposes only. Your graphics card gives it all away.

    The real question though is how PS3, the real nemesis of Xbox, will differ. Some say it'll be better, others disagree and argue it down. What are the differences?

    Mouse + key board > XBox 360 controller
