the problem with building a system equal or more powerful than the 360 is you cannot play all the games that come out for consoles like the xbox 360 or the PS3. Heck people are still waiting for halo 2 to come out for the PC
who really cares about halo anymore? It was like the online fps revolution that has hit PC gamers, what? 10 years ago? most of the features that Halo can offer gamers has been around for a long time. As of now you can build a $400 PC more capable than any console. I have built plenty of friends' cheap and affordable gaming systems that will give the same or higher fidelity of gameplay that any console can muster up.
Anybody know when the updated "Jasper" xbox 360 is going to arrive? This new Pro model with the 60GB HD....does it also include the Jasper update? From what I've read the "Jasper" model has a newly shrunk 65NM ATI graphics chip, replacing the current 90NM graphics this will reduce heat from the graphics and lower the costs for Microsoft....I read that it was supposed to be out in August, but I can't find any new information....the last updates I can find are from May 2008 referring to an August release date?

Lol.... I think you ment halo 3. If not then well you're just dumb. Anyway real pc gamers don't care about halo or pretty much most of the consoles games.
The only console game I would love to see on PC is not even an xbox360 game...
It's a ps3 game, grand turismo 5(the real one not that expensive demo). It would look sooo pretty on modern hardware... why can't I have it, damn you sony!
Man so much hate here. I've been a PC gamer since I was kid starting with the Commodore 64, if you can call that a PC. There is a time and place for PC games and console games. I've always been weary of playing games on consoles because of the lack of upgradeability, no keyboard/mouse etc, but in recent years I gotten a PSP, Wii and a few months ago a 360. I've pretty much left my PC for gaming while I travel and for internet.
Why? Because now I have a son and I have very little time to play video games. When I do have time there is nothing like starting up the Xbox and loading up the Orange Box, Bioshock or whatever for a quick game. PCs are great for games, but for me, it's not as comfortable as a console. On a 42" HD Plasma games look great. yeah..I could do that with my PC, but I don't want to have the asociated cables, keyboard, mouse etc within my son's reach in my living room. The days of locking myself away in my "computer room" are over.
