As anyone who works with me on a daily basis can attest, I am a freak when it comes to reformatting my computers. I custom built a system a little over a year ago that would serve as the ultimate entertainment system machine. My original intent was to use it for Windows Media Center as well as MAME. This is much cheaper than dropping $300-$500 on a XBox 360 system. I have finally relented and reconfigured my environment to incorporate the purchase of a new XBox 360. Several factors influenced the decision.
