    Default Is buying xbox 360 better than upgrading pc in overall consideration?

    I am not a hardcore gamer but I play games everyday.My pc is almost outdated for current games requirements.E5200 2.5ghz processor,2gb ram,18.5" monitor and a 9800GT geforce card from XFX which blew out right after a few days after 1 year.

    I like to play games from some distance now.So I see I will need a big monitor.But monitors which are 23" or 24" costs like 20000-30000 tk.And over that I will need a graphics card and might need to upgrade the processor too.More costs.

    So,I am thinking I can get a xbox 360 for under 20000 right.That's the price I last heard not so sure though,correct me if I am wrong.And I have a 32" tv which can be connected to xbox 360's port.It will be cost effective.

    But now here's another problem.Does xbox 360 found in the local markets live long?I mean what if it gets broken after 1 or 2 years,it will be a total loss.Moreover the games will become useless. Tell me about expereince with xbox 360s bought from Bangladeshs' markets.

    Also suggest me which will be right,pc upgrade or xbox 360.

    Mind filling in your gadget list? A lot depends on what you currently have and, how much you are willing to spend; just telling us that you own a E5200 and that your graphics card died on you after a year isn't enough info.
