www.pricespy.co.nz would be your first place to visit, everyone will have a different opinion on what a gaming pc will cost, it really boils down to how much do you want to spend.

Next to price up your xbox360 you could start a FS post on geekzone or have a look at expired listings on trademe to see what they usually go for.

Ive spent about 2 grand over a number of years on my "gaming computer" and there is nothing it cant play medium to high but you could probably do it for less.

My 2cents.

Maybe also consider keeping one of your controllers for PC gaming. Many 'Games for Windows" seem to have good support for the XBox360 controller on PC. (Well, the two that I own do anyway.)

Even if you don't know how to build your own computer find somebody that does and get them to do it for you. You will save a lot.
