I am a hard core Xbox player right now. I played the Play Station 1 and 2, also the Original Xbox. My friend are starting to switch over and I am considering it. If I did I would get a Alien Ware computer. (My current computer is a piece of sh*t, I can't run Slender on the lowest settings, if that gives you an idea of how bad it is.) Is it worth it? do the benefits outweigh the trouble ditching everything I know? EDIT: I don't have much experience with computers, so building one would seem like a lot of hair tearing out to me.
About 8 GB RAM, i5 processor and a good graphics card are all you really need. And the benefits? All the games are much cheaper on Steam than xbox.
