Blue Mars looks fantastic. Of course, they are cutting out pretty much 
their entire addressable market by requiring a GeForce 9800 or higher to 
run... I think that mass products like the bigger MMOs and VWs are 
actually not friends of the graphics vendors, because the big trend is 
towards cheaper rendering, to be able to address more consumers. You may 
think that a $300 graphics card is dirt cheap and well worth it, but the 
average consumer couldn't care less -- he'd rather make an additional 
car payment, and stay with Intel GMA graphics.

Sincerely,

jw
