You had CGA- I didn't even have that. I had a Hercules monochrome videocard. Like green anyone?

A fun thing for us nerds to do is pick up a 15 year old copy of computershopper catalog/magazine. It's hilarious.

Not so funny. I had an Apple ][ with a tape drive. I remember receiving Byte magazine and Computer Shopper when it was the size of a phone book.

This shows you why it's worth waiting for a dual-GPU single card solution from Nvidia. I hope it comes sooner rather than later.

Despite initial reservations, I will wait for a dual-GPU card as well. That, combined with a GTX 285 for PhysX, should handle Mafia II the way I want.
