For Avid Computer Gamers, Only Wicked Fast Will Do

From the article: "Many Americans are cutting back on high-ticket items. Not Robert Pasque.
The Warren, Mich., resident recently saved enough money to drop about $7,500 on a blazingly fast desktop computer, and another $7,500 on a companion laptop with similarly advanced features. The machines, from boutique manufacturer Falcon Northwest, sport matching paint jobs that combine digital camouflage patterns used by the U.S. military with a logo and member names from Mr. Pasque's computer gaming team -- a custom option that added about $4,000 to the total price tag.

Did the tough economic times make him think twice about the costly purchase? "Not really," says Mr. Pasque, a 35-year-old technician who works on transmission towers. "If you are a serious gamer, and you find your system lagging, you find a way to upgrade." (PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
