    f and j are shaped differently on every keyboard (or at least they are supposed to be)

    I've just got a new keyboard so its a bit more troublesome at ther moment. but still - there are games where you need to use a lot of keys, often at once. I still find myself glancing from time to time and I think without peripheral vision I'll have a hard time finding "home". maybe not with my cursor keys, but my right hand, number pad, function keysm etc etc. I don't think it is just my shoddy keyboard kung-fu. Maybe it is just me but I think even people that can touch type are going to be fumbling around if they cant see their keyboard.

    Open notepad, put both hands above your head and close your eyes. Now find WASD, F10, > and Numlock.
    I only managed WASD + > and it took me ages.

    my fingers can keep up with my brain when writing - but that doesn't prove much about my typing XD

    Did anyone notice its 2gb just to tell you if your computer can handle vr? Has programming become so shit you need bloated ass software to tell you your computer is shit or gold?

    Yeah that's only ten minutes download in the first world though.

    Still a fucking weird amount of assets.

    Well, with a 20gb connection to comcast it was a rather short time to download. I am simply complaining about how terrible programming has become to need so much space to run that "test". Do they know nothing about generating content before test?

    Go HERE and check how how one group of people with godly programming talent can do amazing shit with 64k sized files.

    Some folks in the Tech Report comments have said that the actual download is only 1.9 GB.

    I use a 660GB HDD. And only that.

    What i really love about the performance test is that IT CONFIRMED HALF-LIFE 3.

    Also,my PC sucks so much its at the lowest you can be.

    maybe cause I didn't set a performance profile in nvidia inspector for the application. The card might have switched it's performance state without that. If that is indeed the case why my score is lower it just shows how bad of a test it is.

    Wouldnt upgrade GPU with such CPU, bought that GPU like 2 years ago or so.
    Still very satisfied with this PC performance.
    Next upgrade planned CPU, just probably with new Motherboard, just not sure yet.

    (AMD Phenom II X4 965 3.70GHz OC // 2x 4GB Ram // XFX Ati 7970 3GB)
