While we're talking about how slow computers are, mine's so slow i can't benchmark it. When I try to benchmark, it says to downgrade to a cheaper version of benchmarking software.
I feel your pain who ever doesn't get to choose parts. I can't either...I live in silicon valley. Everyone knows about computers.
What does aquamark benchmark for?

Doesn't matter if it was a long time ago, the fact is still there meaning, I had a crappy computer while other people had 'Mega 400MHz' machines lol

Whatever the reason, take it to off topic or PM if you wish to continue it there. We won't go into 'life lessons' kind of deal in a thread regarding benchmarking.

6800 GT is an awesome card. I would get it if I could afford it. You should definately get that card if you can afford it.

If you wait long enough, that $100 could go to a system that's twice as good as anything out now. But...you might wanna not start waiting now...
