UPGRADE my computer or buy a PS3/XBOX360/Wii.

I am primarily an FPS gamer but i will sometimes play an outstanding RPG like OBLIVION. Now sometime next month i am buying a 42" LCD 1080P HDTV. So my question to those of you that play Video games is:

Q. So should i spend the $1000 to build my new gaming rig or should i buy one of the new consoles?

That would depend. IS all you play is those few games? Do you need a new computer? And either can be made to work with the HDTV

just think TWF in 1080p

I would get a 360. I have one and it kicks a$$ on a wide screen in 1080. And gears of war is a 3rd person. First person is when u are looking through there eyes..
Me, I would save up for the bike. But that is me
