Cool that they mention the SLI mode. Funny that SLI took that long to implement again.

I played Quake 2 in software mode on a RIVA128 like that while NV was working on their first OGL ICD. Back in the Rivazone days.

i was lookin at a JAN '04 PC Gaming mag and their two leet systems fetured for that month had a gig of ram, a 5950FX, 21 inch CRT, intel 3 ghz i think lol

dell would be a fine company if it didnt load bloatware onto its pc's
