Hey everyone, I was thinking in my own mind a few things: Basically a girlfriend of mine wants a computer for gaming purposes. Basically, I can get a barebones box off Newegg, slap a decent videocard and bang, she'll be playing Sims 2 with actual framerates compared to her laptop currently. Which got me thinking. Currently neither of my machines are gaming machines. Originally my thinking was that I would eventually get a PowerMac or at least an iMac that would have respectable gaming performance while still preventing me from having to revert back to Windows OS. But, looking at NewEgg, it makes more economic sense to just have a simple Wintel box around for gaming purposes. I mean, concieveably I can purchase a system and some upgrades and the price will weigh in around a top end Mac Mini and have superior gaming performance. Only drawback is that it's Windows. Has the thought of having a wintel box for gaming only ever crossed anyone's mind?
