Hey guys I'm back...just after I finished my uni work my laptop died ( I fried the graphics card somehow) and I had to get a new computer.

My computer has an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU (E8400 @ 3Ghz) - which apparently can be overclocked to 4 heh. And my graphics card is a NVIDIA GeForce 9600GT. I'm still running XP and I'm happy to say that UT3 demo runs at highest possible settings perfectly smoothly at 1680x1050 and crysis runs playably at the high settings as well (anyone know how I can get stats for crysis ?) 3 gig ram, half a terrabyte harddrive, etc etc.

Also tried out some PhysX examples because apparently my graphics card supports PhysX...played a really awesome fluid physics example and it ran pretty good considering it was processing like 16,000 bouncing spheres. I wonder if someone will invent a 2d PhysX library that used the GPU to calculate the physics :D

Anyways I an exam on Friday and then I'm on holidays, so I'll get back into some serious construct work very soon :)

Sweet laptop man. Sounds a lot like the MSI GX620.

If you are keen on the PhysX thing, you should check out Ageia and see if there is an SDK available. It would be awesome if Construct could use the PhysX technology to process all the physics objects.

Also, I prefer AMD and ATI as well, yet I bought Intel and Nvidia this time around lol.

Oh snap. I have no idea why I assumed it was a laptop lol.

I know what you mean though... free roaming portability means work just doesn't happen. To inclined to muck around rather than produce.
