That would pretty much solve it - of course you would still get people running ATI cards on AMD cpu's with a generic soundchip on VIA chipsetted motherboards. you get what you pay for.

Huh. I always thought my Creative sound card was the spawn of Satan, but I guess it must be the only thing that's actually making my computer work!

I'm not even angry. I'm being so sincere right now, even though you broke my heart and killed me.

Well, yes.

As long as you don't insist on strange hardware configs, or running 3rd generation Graphics cards on 6th generation software.

I think the only thing you really need to do to be safe is make sure the chipset is an intel. I made the mistake of buying a VIA chipset motherboard once, conflicted with so much hardware that I'll only ever buy Intel chipset boards.

Actually, I think that Microsoft (or SOMEBODY) needs to come up with a games specific OS, so for example you have your Windows XP partition, and the GamesOS partition. That would pretty much solve it - of course you would still get people running ATI cards on AMD cpu's with a generic soundchip on VIA chipsetted motherboards. you get what you pay for.
