    It does look pretty intense. I have a feeling my aging system won't be able to handle it (if there ever is a Mac version, that is).

    Why don't you just use $100 bills as toilet paper at the same time?

    Anyways, it's a P4 2.1ghz with a gf4 ti4600.

    Your card should be able to run it fine then cow... Atleast how i understand it.. err, not fine, but be able to run at the 30+fps with stuff cut.

    heh, if you dont notice in some of the screenshots they use 2d like image overlays. :D Funny guys.

    If you're going to compare, at least use the same processors and don't use a shitty motherboard like that.

    But it would still be way cheaper.

    who cares? just go buy all new parts when Doom 3 comes out. It's not like it shouldn't be worth it :D
