They do but it's after a 30 dollar rebate as well, and it's a 3d Fusion or somthing brand.

That sounds about right, considering a 7800GT is about the minimum card you want to play that beast of a game.

I hate MIRs. Just give me the savings up front. A $40 check in the mail 8 weeks after I bought something is not savings, IMO.
I'm not altogether on anyone's side, because no one is altogether on my side.

The demo played reasonably well for me.

I know this is OT, but what card are you running (6600GT?)

Yeah, 6600gt w/ a slight overclock, I think. (don't remember where it was when I played the demo) on an Athlon-xp@ 2.2ghz w/ 1gb RAM. I'll put it back in my sig after I find the F@H one old (give it a week or 2)

6600GT here as well, and the Demo ran without a hitch. Slowed down less than Quake 4 even.

Athlon64 3000+ (1.81ghz), 1gb RAM.

Please take any discussions regarding your cards performance to the general graphics forum, or as I said above.........
