It's long been said that more than 90% of Word users use less than 10% of the functionality of Word. I think we've reached that stage with modern systems. Too much power and not enough to use it on.

i mean, who on earth would need 2 graphics cards? apart from Crysis, there is NO game a single 8800GTX or 8800GTS G92 cannot max at a reasonable resolution (24inch or 26inch is the maximum reasonable res) those people buy 2 graphics cards are just the rich ones caught up by the marketing hype.
