Well are you only looking to play games? Take into consideration that a top of the line Geforce 3 video card is the same price as a PS2. If you processor isn’t up to par, add in another $150+ depending on how fast you want to go. More RAM $50+. What kind of hard drive do you have? 20GB should be the bare minimum for a gaming system. Make sure you at least have an ATA66 hard drive. ATA100 is better, but your motherboard has to support it. Post you computer system specs so we can better help you make a decision. I have a decent computer setup for games, and a PS2. Sometimes it’s really nice to just pop in a game, turn on the TV and stereo, and play. You don’t have to deal with Windows crashing, patches, hang ups, bugs etc. As far as seeing the PS2 in action, the graphics are beautiful. Most games run at 30 or 60 FSP with no slowdowns. It doubles as a DVD player, had optical digital out for your 5.1 receiver. If you have a stereo hooked to your TV games really come alive. I don’t think you would be disappointed with it.

I was going to get a PS2 at the price drop, but now I see they have "Spy Hunter"!

Gamecube is nothing more than Mario and his damn lizard prancing around. Yes, from the screen shots I've seen the graphics are beautiful. But the games are VERY childish. I gave up on the N64 after about a year. When they start programming to a more adult crowd I will reconsider. Until then the PS2 will make me happy. And the Xbox is right around the corner.

If you are a console gamer, I would suggest to go try the PSX2 at the stores before buying and also wait till the X-Box comes out. By then if you still like PSX2 over the X-Box it will be cheaper. If you don't like them both then upgrade your PC. ASR

I've got a P3 450 128 RAM 32mb TNT-2 Ultra SB live Mp3 8 gig HD (dunno what type) It runs all games fine,but the new games like MAX PAYNE (fucking most awesome game ever made) I have to put settings to medium to maintain good FPS. I want to get a P4 1500 but I would need a new board and memory from what I've heard.
