    I'm happy with my raidon 9200/128. For serious, exciting and realistic gaming with intense graphics and realistic adversaries I simply jump on my motorcycle and try to get to the mountains without getting hit.

    Those are workstation class video cards, they do nothing for gaming. They help in rendering 3-D objects and in image and color accuracy... Gaming cards ar made for speed rather than looks - which is fine.... 1 pixel "off" can ruin a professional project.

    In 1987 - I drooled at Apple's new MacintoshII computer which has a COLOR graphic option! The $5000 computer came with B&W still! $500 got you 16colors, $1000+ got you 256colors... those first 256 color images look awsome in 800x600.

    1989, the NEW Amiga 3000 was $2500 (Same CPU as the Mac II) with 25mhz CPU, 2mb RAM, 8 color desktop, 4096colors - max res of 800x600. Oh, 100mb HD. No modem or CD-ROM. Mine still works :) Funny - I can add a $50 video card and use it to access the internet if I cared too (and get a 24bit desktop)... not many 1990 PCs or MACs can do that.
