Hardcore Gamers...this Site is for you! was just discovered by a friend of mine. It's a fairly new site and offers something that I was looking for a lot last year: Online Video Game Tournaments for CASH $$! Basically you set up an account (and if you do please mention me: XBOX LIVE tag- GNADERADE) and can post and accept challenges in pretty much any online game. I actually talked to a representative of the company and they plan on putting together a teamplay feature as well...that is the only thing that is currently sorely missed from the site. It's a great site though and with enough traffic etc. could be as big as some of these ridiculous online poker websites.
