Upgrading so often should not happen. Game industry should be adapting to what most people have... and not dict what to buy. Buying a game this days can be way more than 70$... add a decent graphic card and your game would be worth 370$? Even if you tell me you can play more game with better graphic, it's not worth it. Calm down, developpers. I've upgraded last year, if your game is so demanding... well... i won't play... with no regrets. Other good (and better) games are coming anyway.

Xp is the best OS right now. Stable, compatible with everything, nice securities (SP2)... i don't see the point in switching to Vista. Vista got the eye-candy stuff, XP got the rest.... for now.

Why upgrade to Vista ? Windows XP does everything i need. Plus, i have a Vista Theme on my Windows XP... nothing better than a Windows that won't crash or be unstable at any moment. I trust Windows XP SP2. I don't give a damn about DX10... they dont have games that supports it! Even if you upgrade now, you won't enjoy DX10 for a BIG while. And then, you'll already be out of date since there will be new video card... result: lost of money. Also, remember that DX10 won't change anything to the gameplay. Graphics are not everything.

of course it will run fine on your pc omerdv! I think everyone is kinda satisfied with their computers. Honestly i didn't even heard a single complaints about not being able to run the game pretty well. Oh yes, the only problem I heard are those crazy guys with SLI 7900 GTX not being able to run the game smoothly. They need to patch hehe. :P

i've got AMD Athlon 64 4000+, ATI RAD X1900 GT, 1,5 gig ram... the game runs pretty smoothly at 1600x1200 all maxed out. No lag at all. Nice frame rate. NO NEED in upgrading in those useless crazy FX-64 or Intel Duo Core processor... or in an Ultra video card. You'll spend like 700$ for one card which will let you see the smallest animation 60 times per second instead of 35 times, for example. 700$ is worth the PS3... or this kinda thing ? Think twice before upgrading.

yes there are motherboard that accept both. I know ASUS have been doing this since 2-3 years. But of course, only one slot can be used at a time.

Mini games are for kids. I prefer graphic, control and gameplay than a game which stand on presentation and off-ice show. I want to play a hockey game, that's it. So I'll go with NHL 2007.... when the PS3 will be out, cause i don't want a 360, and other version (PC, PS2, etc...) sucks hard.
