Go get Chris Sawyer's Locomotion. It's Transport Tycoon for the 21st century, quite literally.

Same game, same designer, just a new name and updated. Just released last year.

Well, one of the reasons why I was looking for TT with the original executible was for the bug in it that afforded me lots of money at the start.

I mean, I had a single Voodoo2....and then a few months later I got a 2nd (Orchid Voodoo 2!). I never ran any games at 1024x768, but I ran them all at 640x480 at super fast framerates..like..40 or 50fps man!!! :D

But that was then...3D cards were expensive game gadgets only geeks owned. Today, its a different world.

The only way SLI would work, would be if the company producing it deliberately slowed down the development on their next-gen products. For example, you make a Geforce 6800 Ultra the high end card. And you dont make another one faster for years. Then, as games progress a bit, you can add that 2nd 6800Ultra for SLI performance, making SLI...and not constant technology upgrading....the method of choice for better game performance.

Now we know that wont happen because of competition.

But man, it would be great for all of us if it DID happen. Instead of developers always having to spend time pushing the envelope (instead of creating actual good games), they could focus on content and tweaking existing technology. Look at Gt4 on the PS2.......thats what can happen when you give a group of people thea bility to maximize potential of a system, as opposed to always having them chasing the next DX shader release....
Applause to you sir.I Couldn't have said it better myself.Although,I haven't yet given up on pc gaming.
