Default xbox 360 or comp stuff

Ok guys, I have 620 dollars. Xbox 360 or cmputer stuff. Gramma sent me 500, 250 for an xbox 360, then she sent my mom her share, which was 200, then I won 100 in the lottery, and my great gramma sent me 40, and I wasted 20.

How much are you willing to spend for an XBox 360?

It depends...since your computer is already pretty nice, go with a Xbox 360. Yeah, Elder Scrolls: Oblivion looks really nice...

Hah, what an easy question.

PC. Hands down.

Think of the benefits of a PC to an Xbox 360! Upgradeability, NOT using a stupid controller, more useful...

Well I can get Elder Scrolls for PC though, and it'll look nicer. Plus, the only game I'm really going to play is Halo 3, and I don't wanna spend 500 to play a 50 dollar game. I'm not as intrested in consoles as I used to be. The idea of paying to play online is bogus, when I heard of that, it killed it for me.

Yea because what is an xbox 360?? All it is is a cheap gaming computer, and it is prolly gonna look best on a 300 dollar television, minimum. I dunno what I should get, because if i get a 7800, I'd only have 120$ left, and I want new ram or liquid cooling. But I might get a new motherboard since this one magicly only goes to 1.5volts.... Any ideas?

Yeah, but paying for Xbox Live is worth it. You'll get way more from it than any online that's free.

Is playing the smae game over and over on a crappy controller online really worth it??? I have a one year xbox live subscription but I bet it won't work with the 360. It expires in July.
