I don't know which of the two to get. I am not buying either of them right now, it'll probably be in like a month or two but I need to save up accordingly. I have a lot ofgames for the pc (F.E.A.R., Swat 4, NBA Live 06, Doom Resurrection of Evil, Battlefield 2, Half Life 2, Area 51, Cricket 2005 etc.)

My current pc specs are:
3.00GHz with HT
1GB RAM (400MHz)
128MB GeForce FX 5700 Ultra
80GB HDD
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2
17" LCD Monitor

If anyone got an idea about which of the two I should get then please tell me. Also let's try & say that price is not a major factor for this. Oh & also I have the Xbox, NOT Xbox 360 duh.

Thanks
Manu

I would have to say get the card, but I love computers and not so much consoles. What I love about PC's is they can be upgradeable... But thats just me, its really what you want to do. Get together a cool PC or get a console, its your style of gaming. (But I think you'd be really happy playing BF2 and the games you got on the video card you want...)

To me this is not really a question anyone could answer, but i could be wrong. This is your personal choice, are you a hardcore gamming or just a guy that likes to mess around playing games? I would have to say wait on XBOX 360 as they have stopped producing them due to the fact the CPU's are freezing. Their are to many bugs, I would recommend the card because the XBOX will drop significantly in price. My theory is never buy something when it first comes out because theirs usually something wrong. Hope i helped you decide.

Have a great day.

Go for the vid card. But, in the end its really up to you. I like the fact that pc's are upgradable. And a GOOD 256 vid card is probably about half the price of an xbox. And a really good one (512 ddr) is about the same price as an xbox. Not to mention all the things you can do on a PC, that you cant do on a console. Just my 0.02 cents.

I would get the card, you can do more for pc there is a bigger selection of games, the games that come out are often larger and higher quality in pcs. And pc games are cheaper and the prices go down much faster, better online play on pcs as well, and you get to use a mouse and keyboard which is better for gaming than a joypad.
