Ok, I've been reading the game reviews... pathetic.
At Gamespot, none of the PS3 or Wii games even cracked a 9.0.
I understand that the Wii is supposed to have more gameplay and less graphics, but just the gameplay scores alone are coming in at 8s or worse.
After much debate, I'm going to build a new PC (first time ever building)... I need it for other things as well. I'm going to wait till Vista comes out though (and watch all the kinks get worked out first).
nVidia 8800 GTX (not dual cards... overkill for current games)
Intel Core Duo 2 6600+ (overclocked)
4GB-8GB 800mhz ram
motherboard support for SLI
yada, yada, yada.
Will probably cost me around $2300-2600 for the setup... but the graphics will blow away the consols for years to come... plus I can upgrade later on.
For work, I use intense graphical programs, so I need the juice.
Anybody else build, this will be my first time. I was going to just configure something at Dell or Alienware, but they basically charge DOUBLE the retail cost of the parts (their lower-end systems have razor thin margins, but their true profit center is the hardcore gamer configs).
