Lol i know what you mean, i have all the videos, the .exe (bink) videos and the mpeg and avi ones too, what i mean is how does that show how the system i mentioned above will play the game?? (please note that is NOT the system i am running now if the videos are benchmark videos (are they?))

Sorry if i'm being dense!

AzN, check out the nVidia GeForce FX 5700. It's at 203$ here:

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...ce%2Cfx%2C5700 .

It's a pretty stable GPU...I've tested a few myself. They overclock fairly well and also respond pretty well to bottlenecks that you might have. I think it has an ample amount of power for the casual gamer.
