Wow with so many great games comming out around this time, it actualy sucks!
So I want COD4, Mass Effect, PGR4, Skate, DiRT( Still haven't picked it up :( ) Assassin's Creed, Orange Box....but that's like $850 worth of games...Wow and thats way too much!

Plus I want to get a PS3 soon, and a DS....Hmmmm :-(

Guess I should finish the games I already have...

Orange Box is the top of my list, I have already completed HL2 and Episode 1, plus you get good value from the other included stuff in the box.  More play time to save up to buy the rest of your list!

Yeah didn't mention crysis because there is only 3 people with PC's capable of playing it :-(

If only I had lots of disposable income...that I hadn't already spent...hmm :(


And with the new 30" Dell having HDMI...Maybe the 24" will get it too...If they did that with PS3 DivX playback, and DVR...that would make its chances go way high of me actualy getting it, although for media playback FrontRow running on my 20" display does fine...But 24" is lovely 1200 lines of resolution...

Well I just stopped off at The Warehouse on the way home and picked up COD4. It's a very pormising looking game. Time to see if it can slow my beast of a machine down.

Don't think it would...but it would depend on your AF and AA settings...plus resolution of monitor! :D

I was in the 360 beta...the graphics were OK IMO...obviously its a whole different ball game with pc, but MP was fun!

PC leaves 360 for dead, very nice looking indeed but I think I need to get a couple of 8800GT's My 8800GTS 640Mb no longer cuts it, especially with Crysis coming out.

Hmm any updates on the Nvidia 9XXX series comming...I read ealier in the Year that 9XXX were dropping around this time, and had double the processing power of the 8XXX series...Which should mean a large jump in performance (obviously :-P ).

The 8800GT is a very nice single slot card though, great value indeed! It looks like you could run a couple of those without water cooling....but who knows.

The 8800GT has about 3% less power than the 8800GTX for just over half the price. They don't put out as much heat as the GTX, no need for water cooling.

The upcoming cards are the 8900GTX and 8950GX2
