Lol - I don't intend on playing it Unless my friend brings it over and it accidentally gets installed without me uninstalling it when he leaves...

Its a bit annoying actually - I have the money - its sitting there and I can't spend it until he gets back!

Lol LK, I don't even understand why you got your 64-3200+ and 320gig HD, without getting a decent card. You must want to be able to store your porn and have it load quickly lol!

LOL! Nah; I got everything from PC World on a nice big Advent Offer - Graphics Cards have never been of any high priority to me until I get childish and want to beat my mate's card - and after I saw the likely requirements of Longhorn.

Yeah; well - it would work on mine at the moment and that isn't decent but to get best perfomance you'd need a reasonable one at least. The new Graphics Interface if seriously fat; or is phat the right word? Its both.

Lol; Longhorn would come with all the drivers - you forget its Windows! Any it didn't have the Drivers for would be so new they could run it without drivers well enough to install them.
