what? no im not . . .

everything in europe, especially the UK, is expensive . . .

the pound is almost worth twice the dollar, yet you pay the same numerical amount; ie: a hard drive here may cost US$100, while a hard drive there will cost GBP100, but you're paying almost $200 in US funds

Mabye its because x800 cards arent supported in doom 3?? Dont know. Your systems suck bro the First one sucks for the fallowing reason: Its a GATEWAY!!
