Default PC vs Console

Which has better graphics? The 2 in particular is the Xbox 360 vs a PC.

Well how could a console beat an expensive computer? I would have thought considering the access to upgrades and more software, a console could never beat a PC.

Depends on GPU/Ram.

I think a xBox has a tricore IBM processor, and some gpu like a nVidia 7600GT.

If you have a quadcore Intel, 4 gigs of ram, and a 8800 series card, then obviously your computer is better then the xBox.

Well, lets say the PC in my sig "new build". Not really expensive. How would that match with the Xbox performance?

Just asking because I am debating which to get first.

For the price, the Xbox will win. If you're willing to throw some cash on the table and play with the big boys, a PC will always win out over a console. The advantage the Xbox has is not running a hefty OS and background programs all the time. I think your new build will be much better though. However, games for PCs aren't developed the be optimized on your machine, therefore framerates will usually vary greatly over gameplay and you have to find the happy medium with your settings by yourself. That should pretty much cover anything you were wondering I think.
