Have you got the one with the nice pink casing?

Seriously though, the Go 8600M GT card in those things is pretty good, it should run a lot meatier things than AOE at a decent framerate. I even heard a rumour it can cope with Crysis, but not sure on what settings!

So you wimped out and went for black rather than a nice pink one!

Let us know how you get on with Crysis ...

Which Vista did you get? 32 bit or 64 bit? Just sayin' that 32 bit won't readily recognize your 4GB of RAM. It's one of those things that Dell doesn't tell you when you're placing your order. A friend of mine had that happen on his XPS gaming rig.

My Vista 64 machine has handled all that I've thrown at it except for The Orange Box. For some reason I can't get that to work. I get sound, but no video. Might need to re-install. AOE is amazingly beautiful. I almost can't believe it's the same game I played before.
