If your going to discuss your computer specs, please start a thread in pc-hq's. This is the 360 side of the network and thus lets keep it to talk of the 360. Not trying to rain on anyones parade.
Now I think what Gamexxover's original intent was to start the ball rolling on why keep upgrading your computer, when you can stick with a 360, and still get great graphics for the next gen games, without the need for costly upgrades.
That alone was the main deciding factor for my purchase of a 360. I remember when they first came out, I had no intrest what so ever in playing on a 360. That is until I just couldn't afford to keep upgrading parts on my computer to retain the ability to max out graphics on the latest games.
With consoles, the developers have a set list of specs to work with, whereas with a pc, they have to take into account what the minimum specs they will support will be. Thus keeping them somewhat grounded by that.
Case in point, I was extremely annoyed by the fact that my 3 thousand dollar pc rig could muster graphics as good as the 360. But when a game is developed on a console, they know their limitations, and are not obligated to support older hardware. As is the case when developing for the pc counter part.
So IMO I think at the moment the best choice for gaming is consoles. There still is some drawbacks, such as user created addons/content. I feel the mouse/keyboard combination is far superior when it comes to FPS's and probably always will. You just cant get the pinpoint acuracy achieved by this combo. The fact that multiplayer is usually free of charge on the pc.
All in all its a personal choice, and there are games that wont look as good on the 360 as on the pc, but I feel this will take awhile to tip onto the side of the pc.
