    The second I get one of those I'm getting it to print "Hello world!" down the screen repeatedly. GOTO 10 ftw.

    WoW's already so Blizzard Low any computer that has decent parts can already make it its bitch (internet connection is another factor we won't delve into). Now if it could max run Crysis or Warhead with its retooled engine (I can get close on this rig) on everything including resolution on one screen, with enough memory left over for me to do all other sorts of shit on another screen without having so many fans that make it sound like its a wind tunnel in a box THEN I'd be impressed.

    I remember when judging a PC's capability could almost be measured by playing solitaire and watching how fast the cards jumped.
