ET: Quake Wars and UT2007
So, seeing that both these titles *should* be able to be nativly installed on Linux (which is very important), who else will be taking the plung come Novemeber and purchase one or both?
I'm definately in for ET:QWs in Novemeber, and UT2007 when it's on special
I'm afraid to disappoint you, but I don't believe ET: Quake Wars will be out this year. A recent report (I believe it was at IGN) had stated the game would no longer be out this year.
For UT2k7, I believe that is scheduled for May or June of next year.
Noooooooooooooooooooo! My plans of spending the heat of summer inside a hot computer room is ruined...

Even though I'd love to have those games out last week we're better off giving them more time to finish the game development and finish working out any bugs they find. I'd much rather wait for a good solid stable game, than get another game like BF2, very very buggy, buggy to the point that its unplayable until patches are released. Only a few things are worse than shelling out $50 on a new game to end up pulling the hairs out of your head because the game isn't stable.
I've found both games released by ID software and by Atari to be stable, but still have a bit of bugs upon release, but nothing to the point of making the game unplayable.
Heh, you're not the only unpatient gamer
Quake Wars & UT2007
When the games become available for Linux. Then yes I will be buying the game. just my way of supporting linux gaming.
Just a little off topic sorry for this. not intending to hijack a thread here. I know I was extremely dissapointed that Prey did not have a linux client. I was looking forward to that game.
Anyway back on topic again. I have vented.
I guarantee you will. I recently got a 24" display and am having trouble powering it in games (at 1920*1200).

I have a similar rig to your PC1 Andrew, and I'm in the same boat. When I look at the small decrease in encoding time in benchmarks I just don't see the need to upgrade... unless it's humongous, like 10Ghz.
