But look at the display the Xbox 360 is connected to. Often it's on some old TV and that may be why the big push for the gamer PC. My kid's game capable PCs are an old dual core Intel machine with some PCIe Nvidia 6600 256MB card and surprisingly he runs everything on that. Today such a machine could be dis'd by gamers but I just count my lucky stars he hasn't read gamer web sites telling him how archaic his machine is.
Back to the display. We upgraded the game room with a better display for the 360. It's some 21 inch HP connected with HDMI and no one complains about it at all. Far cheaper than getting a gamer PC.
My nephew has an Xbox 360 and is a keen gamer. He has mentioned that he would also like a gaming computer.
I have no interest in gaming and know little about it. However, I had thought an Xbox and a gaming computer did the same thing.
Please could anyone tell me, does one have an advantage over the other and is there any point in owning both?
