Many people like the idea of motion gaming, nobody likes the actual application of it though. I don't see Kinect adding value to traditional PC gamers. This crowd would rather have 120hz, 8K, 16x...

Do you have to horsepower to drive 2560 x 1080? In my opinion, if you're not going to running at least high, you won't be getting the most value out of your purchase.
