I don't know if it's just the picture but that VGA connector sure looks crooked! You can see the outline marking on the board below the connector.

I doubt that, given it's only slightly more powerful than a top of the Ion, and if it could not at a resolution worth playing at.

Considering people around here and Youtube have played Crysis on a P3 600MHz and a PCI GeForce 8400 GS, this should be able to *run* it at least.
