    Probably be on store shelves end of this month.

    I hope it runs well on Geforce 4 cards. After this Half Life 2 fiasco, I'm not very confident anymore. [​IMG]

    I believe Halo PC uses Pixel Shader 2.0, which is supposed to be support by DirectX 9. Performance just might suck on our piddly little graphics cards.

    Hmm, how well do you guys think it'll run at 640x480, Medium-low settings (No AA, no fancy filtering) on an XP1700+ Geforce2GTS (feel my pain :p) )?

    Hey, for the record I can run Call of Duty (demo), GTA:VC, Tron2.0(Demo) at 640x480, decent graphical settings at a very decent framerate with it (30+fps)
