    So are we going to be able to play this with the likes of a Ti4200 or am I going to have to spend £300 just to spend the game of the year.

    With the detail turned down it will run rather nicely on a Ti 4200 I would imagine.

    I feel ATI are the better company, producing some decent cards for decent prices. Nvidia should just make more decent chipsets for the ATI cards to run on .
    Then we just need to get Intel to give up and make, uh ... heatsinks, for AMD CPU's

    I can dream
    Desktop: AMD Athlon XP 2500+ Barton, 1024Mb PC-3200 TwinMOS w/Winbond, MSI K7N2 Delta-ILSR, Radeon 9800SE AIW, 40 GB 7,200 Rpm Hitachi Deskstar, 120GB 7,200 Rpm 8mb Cache Maxtor Diamond 9, 160GB 7200 Rpm 8mb Cache Seagate 7200.7 SATA, Plextor 708A 8x DVD-RW, 550W PFC Q-tec PSU, Casetek 1019SM Silver Case, Camdridge Soundworks DTT2200 Speakers

    Laptop: Clevo D470W - 17" Widescreen TFT, Intel Pentium4 3.06Ghz 533FSB, 1024Mb PC-2700 Hynix, Radeon Mobility 9000 64Mb, Fujitsu 80Gb 4,200rpm, 250Gb 7,2000rpm 8mb Cache Maxtor OneTouch, Toshiba SD-R6372 DVD-RW +/- x4, Built-in Four speakers, webcam and microphone

    sure is!, hope we dont see a nVidia vs Ati 'battle' where some game manufacturers favour one or the other, youd need 2 pc's to play the latest games at a decent speed

    I think I will wait and see..... I base my choices on more than a couple of reviews on an un-released game......

    I have ever bothered with AA or AF. I play the game for fun etc and not to gaze in awe at the graphics quality..... That just gets you killed

    If this happens, I'll probably just end up never playing games. I hardly get time at the moment but love kicking some arse on F1 2002 when I get stressed. If that was the case, I'd probably just give up.
