    Honestly? It may very well be s l o w e r than my dedicated gaming machine. Pure proccesor power is great, but if you don't have a good/dedicated video proccesor or two.. the actual output will suffer greatly.

    And for a gamer.. well.. 140fps in my current game is working fine for me.

    I am not a die hard gamer but do enjoy the 1680 x 1050 of full AA/AP with V-Sync On and all Maxed Out.

    I can do most games like that with my four year old rig though. It really is in the GPU and its Clock Speed and GDDR Memory that really count for gaming.

    You'd still die from lag!

    I wish I could still game, but that time in my life has passed. Maybe when I'm retired some day. I spent the better part of high school and college gaming constantly (Diablo 2, EQ, WoW, PS3). It got me a crap GPA, a History degree, and some online friends.

    I took all that energy and put it into becoming a lawyer. Now, things are great. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you put your mind to it and remove the really bad distractions.

    Lawyering is just like gaming IRL. You pwn noobs, form strats, and get into verbal **** talking altercations (aka pleadings).
