HOLY COW! Finally, something that has the potential to run 30+ fps on Crysis at its best settings!

Mr. Ccoke-i-nator...

I really like the opening statement about the kids getting the better hand....this is all too true in life..my kids always seems to get the best of me after thay have played for a little bit...

you would have laughed when we played Wii with forum players and my 5 year old took us all in Mario Kart and does very well on COD-PC...

Nice review...good job
