    Hello everyone at av forum

    recently I posted a thread about my dissapointment of Xbox Live, (the lag) and I was looking forward to star wars battlefront.

    However, ive now spotted this Tiny PC for a reasonable sum of £569

    details here http://www.tiny.com/packages.php?prodid=10582

    would this be much cop for games like star wars battlefront, far cry, half life 2 etc, and also is an ati radeon 9200 up to job?

    Pity star wars battlefront aint coming out on the mac :(

    thats an 9200se (a crippled 9200) which is the lowest ati card of the previous generation, you may be able to play half life 2/doom 3 @ 640x480 low detail, but you'd be better off goinfg for at least a 9800 pro (which you can buy online for about £130). If you fancy giving it a go yourself £600 will get you a much better machine if you build it yourself.

    I use a 9800 pro with my athlon 2200xp and 512megs of ram.

    It runs farcry and doom 3 pretty well on medium settings - but it is a long way from a top end machine. I suppose it depnds on what you are expecting - but I would say a 9800 would suit your needs for the immediate future.

    But then a X800 would kick ass...... :D
