Hmm, sounds like your old rig was kind of similar to mine. Slightly less powerful, but if it ran like crap for you, then I doubt I would fare much better. I'll try it tonight just to satisfy my curiosity and see how well (or badly) it runs. Would've built a new computer, but decided the funds would be better put towards the real thing. (I love my 335xi!!! Still grin like an idiot every time I get in it.
