Yes I want the best IQ possible. And I want performance to go along with it. Also I am a fan of PC hardware in general, I do not favor one company or another. I only favor one product over another and that always changes with time. Even though I will never stop loving my old 500MB Seagate SCSI hard disk paper weight.

The one thing that you can't really notice from the videos and screenshots, is the way the light reflects off of the rocks... as you move around in the scene, the light reflecting off the rocks changes realistically.. looks really cool

I personally believe that us americans are unable to do so because osama.

People out there in our nation don't have that, And I believe that our education like such as south africa and such as the Iraq.

everywhere "such as". And I believe our education should help the US should help the south africa and the iraq and the asian countries so we can build up our future.
