    that is a beautiful machine you built and i must say that the only reason why ur dissapointed is either a)you've gone to the future and seen even better graphics or b)you havent maxed out the graphic quality in the options menu which would make the graphics BETTER than next get consoles

    Well, the games that are out right now for PC don't push the envelope in terms of graphical prowess. Wait until Bioshock comes out in August,and buy it for PC. You should be able to see better graphics on that than in the 360 version.

    Also if you haven't played it already, try out TES: Oblivion on PC. There are more options to up the graphics, and thus, make it look better than its console brethren.

    Out of curiosity, what type of monitor are you playing on? If you have a really nice monitor, the maxed out resolution will also look nicer... Catch my drift?

    Or Hellgate London, that will blow out any game on the market on any system when it comes out. And wheelstb, your computer will make that game look amazing.
