In my great war; it is between Microsoft, Intel and nVidia and Macintosh, AMD and ATi. Doesn't fit any reasonable system - as the PowerMac uses a Dual-Dual-DVI 6800 and a Mac Processor; but Microsoft uses Intel and nVidia in the XBox so it works in theory.

I think your right. If you ask a network engineer which machines would you put in a large network. Knowing that reliability is a Major factor.

(Networks = problem x No. of machines). then ALL will go for intel on good motherboards, No SIS & Via stuff.

As with the ATI's as i have mentioned many times, they are not as stable as NVidia. And that's why as you pointed out the XBox uses the two most reliable components.

It must just be because the XBox is so good? If only my friend (Anti-Microsoft Freak) could get that idea into his head.

But as I said; its probably just because I like it that he dislikes it.

I should really get on with my War Story; I haven't done much recently.

Lol I had an Xbox (sold) and the only decent game was Halo, I soon got bored of it when I completed it.

Yes it will eventually be! I own the original for PC, so I'm almost positive it will come out.
