You're right. I love my PS2 and the games I have for it. I just want a 360 so I can have the Rock Band'* and new Guitar Hero'*.

What kind of stuff did you end up getting? Based on the price point, I'm going to guess you didn't go with i7 stuff.

The stuff that matters:
Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.8GHz
6 GB Triple Channel RAM
Nvidia GeForce 285 GTX: XFX Black Edition.

NICE... what that set you back??? itll beat mine im sure but ill only be OCd to a 3.5 (seen it pushed to 3.9-4.1) cuz more is overkill ona dual much less a quad... and youll have 2gbs of ram over me.... but even currently i played on max settings and on a 38" wide screen tv/monitor thru hdmi at 1368x768 res... so with the upgrade ill be perfectly happy lol

i would like an i7 but im kind of a poor kid so i have to piece it all together point by point and until my mobo crashed i was still putting if off... but i just payed for another 2 months of wow and hate playing on my crappy laptop lol

o and i averaged 30 fps on wow at max settings with my older stuff... so i cant wait to see what it hits

Well considering it was a whole machine build, it was around $2,200 I think. But I had to buy everything to make a computer work. Oh yeah, that'* on an air cooler too.


Gear grinder for now: construction. I swear to God these people plan the worst times to do construction. They KNOW the south-bound lane is full of traffic of people going to work, and the north-bound lane is practically empty. So which side do you think they work on? The south-bound lane. When do they wait to work on the north-bound lane? In the afternoon when it'* full of people going home from work.
