Sent this to one of my friends who is a teacher and she was like "omg!!!" since her kids play Minecraft and Portal at age 5 and 6. They are quite good for certain learning purposes especially at a young age, even more so since it isn't BORING.

Which college do you go to?

:/ damn...

My school has C2Ds and a few i3s but my work has P4s. Thing that sucks about C2D is that the GMA graphics suck for gaming.
All I can say is even a P4 3ghz HT with 2gb of ram is still slow as balls. The slow hard drive makes it worse but still, so easy to peg the machine to 100% CPU load. Worst CPUs ever made tongue.gif

In our library on one of the floors we have a gaming section.

Each system has the following (I am not joking):

i7 980X
12GB Ram
SLi GTX 580's

Why they spent our tuition money on this? I don't know. But I'm not upset because it is quite awesome.....just need to find a way to sneak a folding client on there tongue.gif

PS: This is at the University of Calgary
