Xbox 360 PC hardware equivalents?

Even if you got a PC with pretty much the exact same specs as the 360, you won't be able to run most games that the 360 can since they're not optimised for the PC.

Consoles only have one main job, which is to run games. A PC has to handle many more things simultaneously, a demanding operating system, resource hogging applications, etc. So you would never get the same performance out of the hardware. Not that the specific hardware used in the consoles are available for desktop PCs, and would probably be more costly than standardized hardware if it was.

Equivalent to Xbox 360?

 

CPU: Athlon II X3 450 3.2 GHz (only loosely equivalent. X360 uses PPC instead of x86)

RAM: 256 MB DDR2 (GDDR3 is based on DDR2)

GPU: ATi Radeon X1800 XT 256 MB

 

That sounds about right, but to put what Azazel was saying into practice you'd probably only manage to run GTA San Andreas on that thing.

Barely. 256 MB RAM is minimum for SA, that is, with AT LEAST 128 MB being taken by Windows (assuming using XP).

I think it'd run okay since I completed SA on an Athlon 2000+XP with 256MB RAM and a GeForce 4 MX440 (on Windows XP).

 

It was a total slideshow on my computer, but it means the system you mentioned would render it at least playable.
