    I suggest picking up Quake 3 for 20 bucks and downloading True Combat. It's really good for LAN parties, looks great, and isn't hefty on the system requirements.

    How many times has this been discussed to death? ;) Obviously the poster was not aware of the previous discussions regarding this topic, (I can recall manay a thread...), which is completely fair, but yah, I agree with everything else - Quake 3, UT2003 - it's all the same for all intents and purposes and will "get the job done" just as well as CS. If you're a hardcore CS fan though, and nothing else will do, I think you're outta luck...

    OKI DOKI, I almost felt sorry for asking, but as a so called "newbie" I havn't been through the forum so much, hence my question. However, I'm not a hardcore CS fan, just seeking something similar. Will pick up UT2003 and quake 3. THNX.:D

    counterstrike is available on xbox now and it improves upon the pc verison with more maps. Plus with xbox live it is easily as good as the original.

    What else is the xbox but a pared-down Windows PC? With some work, any Windows-based game should run on xbox.

    Very True.

    xBox is the closest you can get to a PC without marketing calling it that.

    I couldn't agree more. I said that even before the XBox was released - my exact words, I believe, were, "It's a f@$%ing computer!!!" I was actually pretty much saying that out of frustration, as many of my friends at the time were all about the XBox (not saying it's a bad thing, by the way), but I, personally am still a fan of my PS2. :)

    I always found that the XBox is a PC gaming machine, whereas the PS2 is more like a true console, at least af far as game selection goes. So, it just depends what types of games you're into. I have always found though that PC gamers tend to lean towards the XBox more, but that's just in general, from my experience.

    Speaking of Q3 and UT...anyone know where I can purchase Q3 and the original UT for the Mac? I'm having some trouble finding it.

    Buy Quake III gold - it has Mac, Linux and PC versions and the expansion pack. $30 CDN, so probably $20 USD.

    Any EB will have it. Circuit City, Best Buy, etc.

    The X-Box is a PC, it has a GeForce2 MX, 10GB HDD, PIII 733 (I think,) RAM soulderd in, etc...

    What else does it need to be a PC a VGA out put and PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports.
