Oh yeah, they are gonna be a tad expensive. Probably better to stick with what you got then. Or up your budget.

That should run as good as, if not better than a 360.

I thought people with ADD weren't supposed to play computer games because of the light flashes or something..

You're thinking of people suffering from epilepsy. ADD is an accronym for Attention Defecit Disorder, in which the subject has a shorter than usual attention-span. This in NO WAY denotes a lower intelligence, incase someone decides to find it funny.
