Less CPU power/ little bit less graphical power.

Slightly under, but much more memory.

not to mention you can do all sorts of things on a pc

x box 360 uses the R500 core, whereas the X1900XTX uses the R580. so no competition, the xbox wil get owned by that system.

o btw, you dont need a crossfire card for one single card unless u plan on upgrading to two cards in the future which i highly not recommend you coz you need to wait for the new directX 10 cards

Xbox 360 has features from the R600 core (X2 series that hasn't come out yet).

No way ... The Tri-core 3.2Ghz CPU is the equivalent of a hybrid tri-core Pentium 3. It's not that powerful, on the other hand the video card is faster than any PC video card. But that will change with the G80's, and plus a PC can do everything, an X360 games and that's it.

its not tri-core, its just 3 CPUs. which i believe are dual cores, not sure, they are IBM though.
