    I've been thinking of switching over to PC gaming but I'm hesitant. I just don't know.

    I've been thinking about it for awhile too. I just don't think I have the money to keep up with hardware advances that seem to happen every year with PCs I have heard you can build a good gaming rig for $500-$600 (not saying top tier, but I guess decent quality). Just without the know how on parts, and other variables it seems far too risky to try building one on the first go.

    My desktop was in that price range, got it a few years ago, and it still runs most games at the higher settings very well, and isn't slowing down. It did need a few upgrades, but even those weren't too expensive.

    It actually gets a bit cheaper over time as well. Since once you have it, when you upgrade you don't need to replace everything. No need to replace a perfectly fine DVD-RAM drive or a solid power supply (power requirements permitting). Heck even investments you make to keep your current rig up to date like a new graphics card (mine was like $40 and easily bought me another two years) can typically be beneficially migrated to a new setup. As a general rule just DO NOT SCRIMP on the Power Supply. As it will make or break your system. You don't need to over spend or anything, just remember that el cheapo $10 power supply will probably come to bite you in the butt later on :P
