    Console wars!!

    Actually it's a celeron, not a p3. And its graphics processor is equivalent to Geforce4 mx i believe. What i like about XBOX is on the fly dolby digital encoding (similar to nforce1 & 2 boards). It really sounds nice playing games with a 5.1 speaker setup!! :)

    Where should i start if i wanna learn programming??

    Console wars!!

    Therefore they are aimed more at the younger generation. Im not saying the games are bad though (I love them). :) I agree with freaking_out, most PS2 and XBOX games are the type that i would rather play on my PC.

    Console wars!!

    Im getting another xbox just for the mods (linux, media player). The other xbox will be for live games. :D I never really liked any of the Nintendo consoles mainly because of it's games. They are usually more aimed at young kids. For example, I remember back in the snes and mega drive days...
