No way PC gaming is atleast 100x better. Xbox360 has the stiffest FPS controls ive ever used i re-sold mine the first month.

just so you know an I7 and a mobo will set you back at least 450 but that will be the most crucial expense of your build since the 1366 chip set is going to be the new norm soon getting an old quad setup is building dated, however this is not saying that a 775 quad set up is in any way not a killer machine

Thermaltake Armor
680i LT
q6600 (g0 revision)
736 mb EVGA 8800 GTX
2 gb crucial tracers
500 gb seagate 7200.11
TRUE 120
PC Power & Cooling 610
and a run of the mill DVD drive
