My buddy Joe has this old mATX computer from HP like from 2000 and he runs Wow @ decent settings. if thats not saying something then idk what is. Wow is just not comparable in this area like you've stated.

(me personally i hate WoW)

Microsoft is promising now that they will put a longer warranty on the 360's cuz they admitted to the defect being present in the 360's. IE overheating red ring of death.

My fondest online gaming moment was in Socom.

Everyone on my team but me somehow died in the first minute of a game on that snow level with hills, a couple buildings and a outhouse. I hid in the outhouse and when the whole team rushed my building I jumped out, threw a bunch of grenades and opened up with my machine gun. I mowed down 7 of them and then got in a pistol dual with the last one. Sadly he killed me, but I swear he had to be cheating because he got hit with a grenade and shot a bunch of times.

memories...
