> > Great thanks. I see there are no important code updates though. Do you have the AccPack? Is it worth the money? And are you using special hardware? Currently flying with my Inspiron 9400 laptop attached to my 32 inch tv, but I'm looking for a normal desktop with a better graphics card. Any tips regarding the video card? I'd like to hook up at least two wide screen monitors, if possible 4.

> I got the Accelerator pack which comes with SP2. I can get quite good frame rates (most options to the Max) with a Core2 Duo, 4 gigs memory but I have a 512MG Nvidia 8600GT. The 8800 is too pricey being 800 upwards. The 8600 is a cheaper alternative but does not need the extra powersupply as well as the extra $$$ :)

> Currently the 8600GT is the cheaper alternative though they also have a more expensive GTS. The 512m options though a bit more expensive are worth the cost. If you jump to 8800 then the cost goes up dramatically upto $40,000 :(
