Well I was considering getting Elderscolls Oblivion given that the forums is gushing about it, but then I checked the minimum specs. Wow, my computer's not even close. I guess I haven't been keeping up with computer tech recently, because I didn't even know that computers existed at the recommended spec level. It's scary how fast the processing power curves have climbed in the last year or so. I should have guessed that it was around time for me to upgrade when WOW filled up most of my hard drive when I installed it. Anyway, the point is that I need to upgrade, but that's not going to happen until after I get a job, because I can't justify to myself spending that much money before then.
I can't even remember how old this computer is. I do remember I updated the video card.. come to think of it, I think that might have been for the last Morrowwind game. It's at least as old as 2003.
