Woah, step back mister.

You must be running something really bad and old like windows 95 or even previous to that. If you have XP or Vista, which you need for some of the latest and greatest games, You need atleast 2GB Ram (Vista), and a decent graphics card, gaming is too much fun to give up. Always updating the PC is fun.

It's not so much the games requiring more oomph, as it is the gaming companies getting lazy with all the CPU power available and just spending less time (and money) to develop an effecient game.

Which of course drives demand for faster and faster CPU's, giving game dev's an excuse to get lazier, etc ...

Case in point: Crysis.

So, is your opinion the i7 architecture is worthwhile to upgrade to for hardcore future gaming? I agree gamemakers are getting lazy in their efficiency of programming and depending on processor speed. But are we well of to leap into i7 for this? I love games and my computers seem to be straining to keep up,,, even quad-core Phenom one year old.

WTF was the point of this thread, only to have the originator proclaim a sparse remark such
as "64kb of RAM is enough for any game?" What skool did you went to? (sarcasm to wit) and with NOTHING to follow it up. Some folks on here say they can't understand
me? Well fook me, that originators post just takes the fookin biscuit!

David, all the quads from day one can run apps/games no probs.
Blame the GPU Industry and Microsoft for casuing the grind to a halt of everything
PC related since late 2007 with the release and demise of DX10. Oh and consoles

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

The article was "Intel's Core i7, is it ever enough?
the implied answer is NO

either you're young and were not alive to hear that quote or seriously in need of reading up on stupid IT industry (blunder) quotes.

take an afternoon, you'll die laughing

McFly, in other words, it has been dubbed as "progress"! ...so that 'progressively' which is recursively applying 'lazier, lazier, lazier..." we all approach asymptotically absolute laziness! ... too fat-ass-to-get-up, sitting on sofa watching reality shows, when bored with too slow computer games!
