right a couple of things to say on that.

1. i wont be gaming on the new pc, i dont like pc gaming (dont kill me )

2. my current pc is intel dual core E2160 with 2Gb 667Mh RAM,

i currently have the wii for gaming on and i no graphicly it is terrible but for pure fun it wins my vote i jus got a racing game for it and its cray lol, its got a drift mode on it and it jus makes me feel like a lil kid moving my arms like a reel car lol, but then i thought well the graphics look like there off a sega megadrive lol, thats why i think im gonna get a new console.

but i could do with a new faster pc my pc jus dont cut it n e more, i was burning a DVD the other day tried opening IE and it took like 30 seconds for it to open thats the reason i need to upgrade.

Really depends on what each thing means to you. I've never been a fan of console gaming so I'd naturally go for the computer upgrade, but if you're into consoles, and Blu-Ray even, definitely go for the PS3, it's a nice thing to have.

Well that settles it. Go get a PS3.

Just clean up your OS a bit and it should run faster.
If gaming to you is all about the consoles, then thats where you should go.

That's already a great PC, maybe overclock it a little, run CCleaner, etc or format, and it'll be running pretty quick...

I'd say go for the PS3.

I'd say to go for a Xbox 360, if your into gaming personally
(I do have both, so its in no way one sided).
For media though, the PS3 may just have it.
