but other games, rts games....any requires me to be relaxed in my desk chair, at my desk, with my computer right in front of me....face-to-screen, hand on mouse...I dunno

Games have a "feel"/"posture" I feel suits them, and it can only be achieved with a console sometimes, and sometimes with a PC.
I agree, but is your friend. I can switch to my TV as a second monitor and either watch stuff through Boxee or switch a game to that screen and play with a controller. I love playing Dirt 2 on there while I sit way too close.

Just run an HDMI or DVI to HDMI out to the tv and an optical or miniplug splitters/extensions to your receiver.

On the Boxee side, I can control it with my Droid and shut down the computer remotely when I'm done. <3 technology.
