X1's are actually $350 right now. All models have a $50 price drop through the holiday. Also your system doesn't have the form factor or the features. Wifi, blu-ray, etc.

People buy a console for more than just it's gaming prowess.

You'd be better off going for this or the g3258 and overclocking the hell out of it! Add in a small SSD to boot from and you'll wipe the floor with any console!!
