    Default Crystal ball time...

    So I was sitting here today thinking about what I'll be putting into my next computer...cause I can do that...I have a bit of free time every now and then. Being as I'm over in the lovely little sandbox, the build won't be for a while...after today's announcement from the Pentagon...apparently it'll be a few months longer than I had hoped. But on the plus side to that, Uncle Sam will "generously" be giving me $3000 to do this with ($1000/month for those 3 months he just added on to me..)

    So come early next year...what are the prognostications of what technology will be the "have to have" technology? What do we have to look forward to in the next few generations of computer gaming technology?
