I appreciate you seeing this from my perspective and I apologize if it sounded like I came down on you personally. I really didn't mean it that way, it was more of venting after a really, really, really hard week at work that seeing another thread on 3dmark just was kinda the straw that broke the camel's back.
But to comment on what I quoted you on there, I know this is Benchmark Central, but there are other benchmarks we can talk about. JKII for instance, the game you (and I) play. Also there's Comanche 4, Sysmark and a whole laundry list of others. Unfortunately, there are a whole lot of people who live and die by Madfunyon's mark and if they don't score above a certain point they feel as if their manhood is threatened. I feel sorry for those people, I really do because as I'm wreaking havoc in GTA3, these folks are trying to take some computer Viagra so they can brag to a bunch of faceless forum slugs who won't give a crap after about 2 minutes.
God, what a crappy week I've had. I think I'm gonna follow my own advice and play some games. GTA3, here I come.
Incidentally and this is off-topic - how do you like that Soltek motherboard? I'm thinking about getting their new VIA Pentium 4 and I'd appreciate some feedback about the company before I make such a decision.
