Then there's the monitor, the case, KB&M, graphics card, power supply, etc.
Motherboard GB P45 $94
Q8200 $160
4GB DDR2 6400 $40
GTX 260 $150
Case with PSU $60
500GB HD $60
DVD +RW $23
Saitek backlit keyboard $40
G9 $60


You are pricing old parts and prices (Who spends $200 for a motherboard??? Maybe an I7 mobo when they just launched I never spend more than ~$125 on a motherboard). Also, if you have a TV you dont need a monitor.

PS3, no TV - $400

Already u have a PC that will do alot more than any console.
i7-2600k @ 4.6Ghz, Zotac GTX 680 (1310/7000), 16GB DDR3 1600, 2 x 1TB Samsung F3 RAID 0, Windows 7 x64, CPU and GPU custom watercooled
