That's true, likely a lot of fanboys will buy their favourite brand whether it's a better deal or not.

It doesn't even run multiple core CPU's properly like it is stated it can. The game is a joke, period.
I is a good tech demo though. But hey, 3DMark shouldn't be considered a definitive gaming benchmark either, but it's rare that there's a review without it. Same for Crysis.
