    Thanks for that! I didn't know, but I'm gonna get a copy. And Unreal Tournament 2004? At last I might actually get to try my Radeon 9000 on something other than XGalaga and Battleships (which are both a bit tame by my standards).

    Not old news to me. First I’ve heard of it. Thanks for letting me know.

    Will my system (details below) be decent enough to play DoomIII?

    Well, if there is anything you might run into problems from, it would be the video card. A GF3Ti200 might be a bit too slow to support Doom3 at its best.

    The minimum requirement for D3 is a Geforce 3 card, so you'll probably only be able to run it at minimum settings.

    Got to wait a while for Doom 3 though. December this year: Merry Xmas. Unreal Tournament 2004 comes out in March... at least in the UK

    bringing back an older topic, I can't wait for id software to release the binaries within the next month.

    also, how well can it run on linux?
