The PC has to run the Windows OS as well as legacy devices, making it less efficient. PC games are also forced to use DirectX so developers cannot tweak to get the most out of GFX cards.

You need roughly a 1.5Ghz CPU and 256Mb RAM and a 64Mb GFX to be able to run PC equivilant of console games (Halo, GTA) as smoothly, even at 640x480 resolution.
