Yes it's the one in my sig. It runs really well actually, even faster than xp. Games do run a little slow but I'm going to get more ram soon. system rating 2.6

That's interesting. And I bet adding a bit more RAM will quicken things up a bit.

HAHA i laugh at you jk, there is no file too big to download. Hitman Blood Money took me 4 days and its 4.18gb, but now that i'm using a different client my downloads don't take over 3 hours at max, no matter what size.

I guess it isn't too bad, even if you guys are complaining new games will take days to download, for me all games take that long or longer but I can still go for it

i havn't pirated any games but i'm just saying if I were to download a standard size game it would take about a week and you guys are complaining that a game that is freakin huge will take a few days, hell I'd kill for that.

I laugh at you when Crysis is 3 DVD's and you have to download 10 gigs of stuff, LMAO!!!

Haha, hopefully it won't be that bad. Usually I get about 50 kB/s with games since there aren't that many seeders. I think today was the first time I ever broke 300 kB/s with a torrent downloading Norton Ghost. But then again, when Crysis comes out, I'm sure there'll be thousands of seeders.

I love uTorrent, IMO it's much better than Azureus.
