I run my xbox through my pc. a computer screen has similar res to an HD tv, if i remember correctly.

Though you really need the RAM to forward every screen. TVs sacrifice resolution for fps.

maybe. but there is something gobsmackingly cool about playing on a really large LCD, and those bravia's really handle the graphics well

I have a simple Xbox, not a 360. I run it in it's natural size against my 1280x1024 screen.

>>This is what i get<<

Actually... that looks odd. The actual window wouldn't screen capture, so i had to use a screen taken in dScaler. That was then STRETCHED into place where it should be. It actually looks better than that x3

I do intend to get new things for my pc... but an external harddrive, more ram and a new motherboard are higher priority.

depends on where your buying, or how the quality of the bits involved. I wonder if its more expensive in UK? further away from china?
people blabber about the cost of consoles, but when it comes to PC upgrading, its usually much worse cost wise

oh and rainbow 6 las vegas for the PS3 hasnt been ported well from the PC.
to make a long complaint really short: it sucked; graphics, interface, loading times, everything. sucked.

ubisoft has gone downhill, only game worth noting is assassins creed

i agree with that too. chaos theory is one of the only game sequels where they built on the good points of the second game and made them better.
play chaos theory. i can lend it to u if u want... :P

Cheap video card. Simple answer.
Spoiler:
Mind you... mine was free... and the sound doesn't work on it. Sound is run to my amp, so i have to press a button on the amp to switch between PC and XBOX sound. I also needed a composite lead to reach it.

Convert your money to American dollars and import. Should save you a couple hundred.
