New job, new country, so its time to leave the five-year-old Advent at home and buy a decent games machine to occupy those lonely expat evenings... (Mrs 4(T) is around to ensure I don't enjoy too many of the traditional expat amusements...) I'm a bit out of date with hardware at the moment (eg I went to the local PC shop to buy a replacement MS optical mouse, and was amazed to find out how much rodents have changed - now I have a lazer version with an incredible number of buttons and which glows purple for some reason...). With PCs, I usually buy "high end" but not "bleeding edge" - so I don't need a megabucks gaming starship cooled by liquid helium, or whatever the geeks are using these days. I'll probably get a machine built locally, so just need to know where we are with processors and graphics cards at the moment - eg Intel/AMD, core duo/quad core, NVidia/ATi, etc. In the past I've started by looking at the configurations on the Dell site, and taking those as a benchmark. Unfortunately, Dell now seems to list so many processor options and deals that its hard to understand what is new and what is old. I was wondering therefore if anyone can point to a site which gives an easily-understandable road map of the current processors and/or graphics cards?
