Anything tainted by Nvidia isn't worth buying anyway.

I also like how they avoid using any ATI cards for comparison :) 

But ya those recommendations look like a computer killer allright.

I don't understand why ppl hate 3D gaming that much! Personally I think its great, it gives another dimension and feeling to a 2D screen. About the headaches that ppl are constanly blaming for their indesire to try something new, I don't recal many ppl complaining about them after Avatar (even though that took 3 hours). Even with the flickering of stereoscop glasses, theres no way that all the ppl who complain have tried them for extended periods of time, they just havnt been around long enough!

If we remember back to the days when the first moving videos were shown, ppl came out with all kinds of headaches --> we get used to stuff!

As for Metro 2033, it would be sweet if ppl stopped saying "but can it play Crysis?"

Yes as a slideshow if xbox360 have the same graphics like PC. But on xbox is going to run like that 1024x600 or 1280x720, 0-2xAA, 0xAF, 25fps, low settings (poor textures, shades, lighting, shadows, physics, etc.). ;) 



... yeah Im not going to take those specs too seriously, if anything they are just trying to get attention. I think you will be fine with a HD4870/GTX260 along with a fast Dual Core (x2 5**/e7***/e8***).

but really, those are some specs to play it all right if they are true to what is needed

I feel sorry for everyone who complains about headaches. Obviously those people are inferior human beings. I must have superior DNA as I have never had a problem with 3d movies or my Nvidia 3d vision glasses.

They recommend 8GB of memory for the best performance, I noticed that as well and kind of laughed, I have 6GB of ddr3 1600 and it didn't use anything near that much. It seems like they are trying to get people to waste money on stuff they don't need.
