''Ever since puberty, guys have been comparing their stuff to other's guys stuff to see how they measure up. I'm not just talking man-junk here. I mean cars, houses, wives, money, everything. And gaming rigs are no exception.
If your neighbor gets an 8800GTX, you get a GX2. If he puts in a case window, you get cold-cathode lights and a custom paint jobber from Smooth Creations.

It's a sure-fire path to fulfillment and a vindication of your life in general.''
