In gaming, it's all about 3D graphics acceleration for high FPS, so that you can play your FPS game without any choppy effects. There has been a lot of talk since the 8.7 Keynote on the mac pro, it's gaming capabilities as they relate to the graphics cards and whether the stock card is too weak and what aftermarket cards will or won't work. However, I have yet to see any discussion of the ultimate game. It seems so many people play it everyday. And the computer industry is winning. As new software comes out, you play the game of what is the best computer to play those games on. What video card to stick in there. Oooh, when this processor is out it will smoke this system and be the ultimate gaming system. Until... a new game comes out that demands an even faster hardware set. So besides the fact that you spend countless hours gaming, just as many are spent arguing over how to get the best gaming experience. But who wins the game of being addicted to gaming and the obsession with always having the best machine to do it on. When do you sleep?
