    lol, they saw that quads are useful when you play game and run anti-virus scan and thus concluded that everyone needs a quad... yeah.... ... .. .

    also, if they think "call as spoiled..." will let them get away with anything, then why don't they scratch that whole article and leave just "quads for everyone" part - that will be spoiled!

    Nice article Xazax, I like tomshardware, don't agree with them sometimes, but they are a good read and you can pick up on some decent info.

    Anything you can garner knowledge from is good...:)

    AVG stresses the hard drive(s) more so than the processor(s). That is, World in Conflict is going to croak when trying to load a map whilst AVG is thrashing the drives.

    I do question their motives in using AVG at all. Why not try something more practical and CPU intensive like BOINC?
