Attractive women? At Walmart?

Didn't you just say you make $90 an hour?

Unless you're horribly mismanaging your finances, you wouldn't ever need to work at Walmart. I make about half of that and I am financially secure.

That's odd, because ATI has the fastest (consumer) card on the market right now, the HD4870x2.

Even with its two GPU cores each with 1gb of ram, I only get about 20-25 fps in GTA4. (We're complaining about it up above. Rest of the system is: 2.6ghz Athlon X2, 6gb DDR2, 1tb hdd, Vista X64 Ultimate) I'm waiting for the patch that adds multi-core rendering support to GTA4. I might actually be able to play it at that point.
