Well I think that money that you spent on your rig could've gone to other worthy causes as well. Last time I checked, computers don't require C2Q or Water Cooling systems or 8800GTX to run. You could've ran your computer with an amd Athlon 64x2 and a 7500gt and still be able to use it. But wait I don't think any one is in any position to tell someone how to spend their money if they worked hard for it.

If people want to spend money on games, then let them. I don't see why you have that rig. You wanted it right? So why can't people want GTA IV. Its a lot less spent per person then a custom PC.

I'm pretty sure intel raked in billions on just core 2 quads by now.

Yea, I'm sure EA is looking pretty silly with its 2 billion dollar bid right now... A quarter of that from one game from only one of Take Two's subsidiary's in only one week.

It's on two, and it's safe to say just 360 sales of GTA4 stomped all over Halo.

This is what happens when good games are made. Too bad this much hooplah isn't over a PC game.
