All depends on what you do more. Do you spend more time on the computer or do you spend more time in front of the TV? Personally i picked up my tv using best buy's no interest deal so it wasnt really a huge purchase.

I would definately go with a new PC. PC gaming really is better than console gaming.

I don't know a 40" tv w/surround sounds pretty nice. I got an idea. Downgrade to a 32" and build a good rig and ditch the PS3

If it involves PS3, then go with the PC. PC games are way better...ANYTHING's way better...than PS3.

I like console games on the 360 and Wii, but PC gaming is also great.
