FINALLY, got off the fence, bought a new pc.

Recommended Posts

After hand wringing for literally 6 months, or so, I finally took the plunge and bought a new pc.


I bought a Sager 9880 from http://www.discountlaptops.com


I got the 3ghz, p4 with the 2mb L2 cache. Supposedly it will run 64 bit applications but, we'll see if/when Longhorn ever ships. It has a 256mb GeForce 6800 Ultra and, with a modular bay, it supposedly can be upgraded with new boards. Hopefully, Nvidia and ATI will support this feature.


Tossed in 1gb of 533ddr2 memory and a 60mb hard drive.


I'm getting it without any os since I have a copy of winxp, corporate edition.


The only pc games that I can think of that I'm looking forward are Black/White 2, Quake IV, Warhammer 40000 Winter xpansion pack and...I'm contemplating Oblivion for the pc or, maybe the 360. I know that the 360 will not have no where near the mod support that the pc version will. I'm just not sure if my pc will be able to run it well since, the 360 is far beyond this laptops power.


What other big name games are coming out these next several months?
