Easiest thing to do? Buy an xbox and forget PC gaming

Yes, because owning a console that most people celebrate if it goes a year without kicking the bucket is a great investment.

Plus, controllers < keyboard and mouse.

No, seriously, I like the XBox, and all, but I'm getting this for PC.

Already been down the PC road... The crap is obsolete a year after you buy it.

I like consoles better, less cheating. Mouse and keyboard? Too easy.

Xbox failed, thats why I have a wii and PS3 for backup

As for zombie panic. I play it. (Ir0nExpress)

As for who wins more, it really depends on the players. I've had some silly teams on both ends. Zombies would ambush in packs. People who stick together annhilate everything.

As a zombie, I use the **** out of the F button (zombie vision). Turns em all red and **** and you can spot them a mile away. I like playing as a zombie more. Dont forget the sprint button You also regenerate health (I dont think it was server specific? not sure) so dont be afraid to take a few hits and run, you waste their bullets if they're paranoid.

It's like playing stock class vs electros, you just gotta have teamwork and use ur brains...or lack of ;D

I really don't have a problem with my pc.A good video card and clean your computer out properly and it will play the most current games out to date.My computer is 3 years old and will play Crysis at almost max settings.I have already sent 2 xboxs back for repair,got an elite it's ok seems pretty weak though for a high end console.I do like my ps3 but I don't like the $60 game cost.

Gamefly is your friend.

I'm not the biggest fan of the hardware on the 360 but they have way too many good games to ignore.

If I ever get PC its ole purpose will be gaming, I'll leave cruising the web to my Mac.

It only goes obsolete if you think you need the dual $800 video cards.

I'm running an Athlon 4200+ X2 and a single GeForce 7600 GT from when they first came out, and they were designed as the pieces just before the usual $150 jump in price to the 'high end' stuff. And I have yet to find anything they won't happily run at levels more than I require.

That said, I love games on all consoles, too, but if I'm playing an FPS or RTS multiplayer, it's all PC.

True. I'm also using a 4200+ but I have a 1st gen 8800GTS
(One of the ones with no PhysX.) I have yet to buy a game that runs at less than 60fps on max settings with a res. of 1440x900 save UT3. For UT3, I disabled all the annoying blurring effects and now it runs just as smooth as any other game.

I swear I've seen you around on a Steam game before... Might've been either ZP or TF2.
