Lol I remember watching Friday 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street when I was 5-6 years old. Desensitized me pretty good. No ill effects, except the time I put butter knives in between my fingers (while watching Freddy) and scared my mom so bad she tipped her chair over

Um this game isn't tooo taxing on a system. My brother runs it at 1920 x 1200 max settings with 16QXAA with a 9800 GTX. So pretty much every new card can run it max with 16QXAA. Although it is a dun game and looks great.

that's what i figured based on Mike's GPU reviews. it should be a good title then for some upcoming dual channel VS triple channel testing that i am planning.

I'm running it on highest settings on my 8800GT with no problems, but you got to remember, this is a Source game, which is very scalable for systems.

Nightmare on Elm St disturbed me, and I was 30 or so when I saw it.
