Finally, something that can take an honest stab at Crysis: "In Falcon Northwest's benchmarks for the game Crysis, one GTX 480 displayed high-definition images at 30 frames per second on a 24-inch monitor, and two GTX 480s displayed at 58 frames per second."

Hmm... had been wondering if 3D was going to be more fad than anything else, but hadn't thought about gaming. I'll betcha that rocks.

It's perhaps just enough of a killer app for the ITTOs of the world to build sick ass Win7 pr0n gaming monsters from hell.  I'd LOVE to see the finest 3D gaming in the universe... in my office Smiley

the big one will be console games in 3d. But the main requirement will be no headaches... which frankly aint gonna happen.

Too bad consoles won't have enough horsepower to push two game images with proper framerate when they struggle already with too many games.

But I would love to see ITTO's machine Wink It's going to be interesting to see what happens in 3D gaming. One thing that people seem to complete forget is that we already have one very convincing 3D solution that works with only one image. I built this myself like year and half ago and lemme tell you, it's awesome. It's completely immersive and I would love to see how a game like Modern Warfare 2 would look with similar trick.

I'm afraid I'd probably let you down and build something like this, but better and far cheaper.  Some people never grow up Smiley  But at least it wont be a transformers box  ROFLMAO

Or at least the concept of everything being modular. I have always wanted a truly modular computer, though this isnt quite there.

I only would buy that alienware box if it came with that glowing magic area effect glyph. Then I would be teh oober.

Borg in a blender ROFLMAO  That box could beat up Chuck Norris Wink  But seriously that looks really nice.  Perhaps a tad over-ominous, but nice.
