    Ok... That, I believe, is technically cheating.


    That's a top-end card no matter how you slice it. However, I do believe that I've a couple of choices in that category as planned upgrades in the medium future- just not yet. Need to buy the quadcore first so I can get compiles done faster...

    I'd just like to say that 'Precedence' is not the correct word for the title. Precedence means rank, priority, first choice. It simply doesn't make sense in the context.

    Of course, awkward wording isn't anything new for articles on this site.

    I was trying not to nitpick, but I think the right word is "precedent"

    Yeah, oops. Can't believe I didn't catch that bug until now, but that's what I get for working tired. Thanks, it should be fixed now.

    Hey, at least you remember what you were *trying* to say. I haven't always been so lucky

    I have to try out this Unigine. Looks like it will kill my GPU though. 7800 GS (agp)

    Regarding 3dmark. I remember 3dmark come out all those years ago, and I tested my 3dfx card. At the time I was highly wowed by it's graphical glory. Thing is, at the end of the day, it's just 3dmark. Not UT3, ET Quake wars or the next gen game.

    In this case, it's a demo of an engine that will be IN at least four or so games at this point. The screenshots of at least one of the games are visually impressive. Now, it remains to be seen what the game will need in the way of resources, but...

    Svartalf:
    Must be a game targeted towards future release otherwise it would cripple even a modern pc.

    Heh... Yeah, the games in question are still in development. At least one of them appear to be a hot potential AAA play in the markey.
