Good point. I know a couple of people who are hard line PC gamers. They say the console can't compete. My position is, at least I don't have to upgrade my console every three months to keep up with the demands of the next big game. <br><br>It feels like game developers aren't held to any restrictions when making games for the computer. People are having to buy new processors or graphics cards every few months. But when it comes to consoles these same cutting edge games will work fine on a three year old console.<br><br>

It's an expensive hobby for sure, but it's also about making smart choices for your hardware & keeping up with drivers and such...<br><br>I spent about $1500 on a custom-built gaming rig, and the only upgrades I've made in about 3 years are an additional 512mb of memory (about $100) and a new vid card (approx $350). Not too shabby, but then again maybe I'm not as obsessive as someone else might be. I also happen to be a Mac user, so I also spend $$ on hardware in *that* department - if I wasn't planning on getting a G5 soon, I might just drop that money on a new motherboard or upgrade the processor for the PC...<br><br><br>Back in Black...
