I owned a xim3 and was like you, i had to make the choise between pc upgrade or console plus all my mates play console. The xim3 for me was flawless, i never experienced any issues and thats not being biased, i tried 2 other products (cheaper) before i tried the xim and ive never looked back.

I returned to PC for black ops 2 and had a blast. I sold my xim3 in preparation for next gen and I once again had the hardware upgrade or nextgen console purchase dilema. I got a PS4 because my mates did and it was cheaper, im not a fanboy to any product, i go where my mates go as gaming for me is all about socialising.

Unfortunately the last 6 months have been hard getting used to the controller but i was getting there. Now I find I am getting owned alot more and I feel this is because other devices already enable K&M but i'm holding out for xim4 because it will be the best precision on the market.

My pc upgrade would have lasted 1-2 years, my console and xim purchase will last me 5+ years subject to not dieing on me.

For me PC gaming is always best but i have many pet hates about pc gaming, no friends, hacking, no trade in and generally a lower player base. Based on this I am now a console gamer but i still play other less intensive games on pc like MMO's so the upgrade timeframe is longer between upgrades.

xim =/= skill in a box.  And between True Skill being used in the background of matchmaking, and auto-aim lowering the overall skill gap needed to aim sufficiently.  You may be surprised at how hard it will be "owning kids" who spend countless hours playing.  Trust me, good controller players will have no problem aiming.

Out-aiming somone is a much smaller factor for success in console FPSs vs PC.

Like Lordy, my decision on the matter was dictated by my friends. I've been a PC gamer forever, and resisted getting a console, but several of the people I play online regularly with only play on a console (360) and are unlikely to get a pc and keep it up to date as I do. So I will probably always have both, and of course Xim, would be lost without it. Any game that is not some multi-player game that is likely to interest my friends, I try to get on PC. Reason being that it usually performs better, and more so as time goes on since you can upgrade a PC a piece at a time, as opposed to waiting 5-ish years to buy a whole console. Also unlike consoles I don't have to worry much about my old games not playing on the new gen.
I tend to buy a new vid card every year (and ebay the old one), bought an SSD last year, etc. Not the top of the line, just the best bang for the buck at the time.
We haven't got one of the new consoles yet, but I'm sure we will at some point.

I recently just switched back to PC gaming and built myself an SLI 780/4770K gaming rig.

In all honestly the ONLY reason you should be looking consoles is if you have a huge amount of friends that you know will never convert to PC gamers or you have a very limited budget.  Otherwise stay on PC. Prices for games will ALWAYS be better and you don't have to pay $60 a year to use the XBL service. Not only that but games look alright now but in 2 years you'll still be stuck with the weak GPU inside the XB1 while PC games will continue to look better and better.

Literally the exact same boat on all accounts, that's a really good point with the time lines though, Console is good for at least 5 years, whereas I wanna throw my PC out a window after 2. Thanks for the testimony man. If all my buds played PC,  this wouldn't even be a topic, but they have all jumped on the next gen band wagon

When building a PC, always buy a higher end motherboard. Everything else can be upgraded, but if your motherboard isn't future-proof you'll wind up replacing the whole PC on a shorter cycle.

I got by with small upgrades every couple years using this strategy.

Great responses guys, I really truly appreciate the honesty, I made a post on PCMASTERRACE, oh god that conversation was a bit one sided ahah.

Seems to really come down to Friends vs actual gameplay. If I want the best gaming experience I obviously should go with PC, but if I want to actual be Social and not play with WuFungDing from South Korea, console it is.

Tough......on the fence, especially with the performance I have seen with my Xbox....certainly lacking and this AIM box thing scares me a bit, I was not aware of it.

See that's the tough part right, I have gone on buildapc plenty of times and the amount of configs is endless as well as the debate as to what is "Best" I think if I am going to build I will wait a few more months, I hear NVIDIA is coming out with some great new cards and Intel is looking at a fancy new processor. But good point with the motherboard!

There's always going to be some new tech release "right around the corner". Keep a look out for good deals and use those to stay in-budget. I usually wait till November and the holiday sales.

Mouse response via XIM depends on the game.  With your BF's and CODs there is hardly any difference.  I actually find the auto aim in these games to make things too easy and therefore switch it off.  If you are a semi decent twitch player in these sorts of games you will murder most opposition as you can easily 180 as well as track running targets

For some other games its not too good.  GTA for instance has a very slow turn cap so XIM is not recommended. 

Overall though I would whole heartedly recommend moving to XIM.

In my eyes, there's no major difference moving from PC to Xbox apart from the aim assist which I found really useful. Pubs on COD is way too easy if you're using a M/K against normal controllers. Comp side is abit challengin as gamers are experienced n abit smart. As a XIM user, I never been proud so much with it as it really makes the game easy and enjoyable for you.

Lemme throw a small bit bout me, I played a lot of top players/teams on COD EU including pros pretty much in the rest of Blackops2. Never got addicted with my M/K so much the time I had my XIM Edge :D #worthit
