Well, I have this tremendous longing of heading out and buying a copy of Doom III, that will be available in stores within 3-4 days. But the hefty price tag of 55$ is playing games in my head. According to the hardware requirement analysis at HardOCP.com – Doom III Hardware Review my Inspiron 8600 will be able to run it, and I should be able to play with medium quality settings@ 800×600. (A poor graduate student like me have to live with that). So what do I do? Buy or not to buy? … to buy or not to buy ?….to buy or not to buy ?…. but the game really looks awesome. My current mindframe reminds me of my first year in IITK, when I spend Rs. 1100 to buy a copy of Quake II… somehow I feel nothing has changed !
