Look at the top gaming PC's, they cost upwards of $5000 for the fastest processors with the best graphics cards & their video isn't much better than the PS3's.
Lotus is right here - PC video kills the PS3 hands down. PS3 vs Nvidia 8800 Ultra? No contest. But the ultra does cost more than a PS3 so it should do more. PS3 you get an entire system - its like HTIB, I know a lot of people who have them and are satisfied. A fully tricked out computer rig is like having the Snell Reference A Thx System with 18 inch subs. They both do the same things but one cost a whole lot more, does it better, but fewer people can have it. This is why the PS3 take over - there are more HTIB's sold than Snell systems (but the PS3 is way better than a HTIB).
