I love how it's a generation old midrange ATi card listed and a new top range NVidia card, in the recommended.

I read some posts (by child geeks) that the game runs unacceptably slowly on "minimum" hardware.

Hey, that's my old midrange ATI card! Except I've got the x800 GTO. I wouldn't even try to run it on my PC. I'll stick with the PS2.

Speaking of which, I've got hard beat except for Cowboys from Hell. Got up to 98% and lost it! There are two times in the song, one of them towards the end, where you need blue, yellow, red in quick succession. I keep messing that part up. I normally star power the first time, but I can quite make it past the second time so I die at the end.

On that note Ken what is your preference for Video Cards as I am looking for a new card.

Current system specs:
Gigabyte GA-MA69GM-S2H Mobo
AMD 6400+ AM2
using on board video right now.
2gig PC6400 ram dual channel mode.
500gig WD SATAII
LG DVD writer / lightscribe
Antec Phantom 500 Power supply

All in a small form factor/microATX case
LanBOX Lite by Thermaltake

Anyone else have preferences?

I am torn between Nvidia 8800 series or ATI latest HD.

The system is mostly for gaming(more my 7 yr old son than me\:\() and minor playing around, I can't see myself using it as a HTPC but you never know.

After all I can get this for much cheaper than any stand alone

8800GT. Or the HD 3870. Depending on how much you want to spend or how long you want to wait.
