At first I didn't take this seriously. Now looking back I definitely should have bought Zbrush from Pixelogic...near the same price. $700.

Ack... Mod please move....

I'm actually serious, I was looking to really go nuts modding this and obviously have been tempered. I'm still comfortable with Nvidia towards the future, and will look forward to their next generation / lessons learned etc.. I wont buy day 1 again of course.

Annoyed I posted on the wrong forum. I'm working on a Unity3D project and hoping to find a way to designate which CPU Core I'm running my client on so I can go multicore, multiclients and I had some ambitious graphics goals.

I'm on hold for now. I'll likely still buy zbrush in the interim, as it alway interested me, with what those guys are doing.
