Begin quite - Graphics adapters are the limiting bottleneck for performance in ANY current system when it comes to gaming. Don't be fooled by benchmarks showing Intel faster than AMD or vice versa, all of this only applies to hypothetical low resolution runs with all eye candy turned off. Especially above 1024 x 768, as meager as that may sound in a day and age where most desktops are natively running at 1280 x 1024 or even higher, the graphics card itself rather than any bus interface or other system component is the one and only bottleneck in the system - as far as gaming is concerned. The mere fact that an AGP x4 system could hold its own is probably the best proof for the validity of this argument. - end quote

Goddamnit, MS, you can't tell people that. Tomshardware, Firingsquad, et al. might not have anything to publish if people ever thought about this.
