    i know this must get asked a lot, and there must also be stuff out on the net too. but i'm dambed if i can find anything....

    anways, it's a very complicated question, but what do you think the PC equivelent spec of, for instance, a playstation 2 would be? and maybe other consoles too...

    What do you mean by equivelent?:confused: You mean in hardware parts or in capabilities?

    Anyway, if you are interested in buying a gaming PC consider the following:
    -PCs are usually better in games because of their more powerfull hardware. But the gamer's dream machine needs a great sum of money to be given away...Do not except a 400euros PC (Box only) to provide all the graphics of XBOX 360. Consoles will play their games until replaced by the next version while PCs may need upgrades more regulary in order to keep em up with the evolting software.

    As for the playstation 2 question, I guess that it could provide graphics equivelent to those of a
    P4 2.0/AthlonXP 2000 or lower with a Geforce 4 gpu and about 256MBs of RAM. That's a guess only...

    If you want to buy a gaming PC search the forums for that, there are several similar threads.
    Or you could start a thread at games forum where gamers with more console experience could answer you.;)

    I'm adding this here too: The old Xbox has a "cut down" PIII 733Mhz CPU, 64MBs of RAM, and a GeForce 3Ti based GPU. But it provides much greater performance compared too a PC with these parts, I'd guess it's performance it's like the playstation2 equivelent PC.

    You may of course be aware of the above stuff...;-)
