Well.. all my friends told me that i could buy a PC for half the cost and get a better gaming machine for Lotro or whatever but i told them that i wasn't getting a MAC just for the gaming. I need it for my Photography business and maybe 10% for gaming and besides,... Macs are better! Well, now i got the best of both worlds. I can't wait for them to come and see Lotro on ULTRA-HIGH settings (that's maxed out btw) on my new MacPro 2.26 Octo. For those who play Lotro; quick loads, no glitches, smooth gameplay, even in Bree and busy areas. My MacPro has the ATI graphics card and 16gb of RAM and i'm sure both of them help.
