Hello everyone!

I've been to Legit Reviews a number of times, but all those times I came for the reviews. They were very informative, by the way. I eventually stumbled upon a contest hosted here and since I love contests, I joined promptly. However, I can see that there is so much more to the forums and I look forward to spending more time here to participate in discussions. I have an interest in programming, computer hardware, video games, and graphics (especially volumetric graphics using voxels). Other than computer stuff, I have an interest in sports, not really watching, but instead playing. My favourite sport is Football (Soccer), though I haven't played in a while. My favourite cheese is Camembert. My favourite colour is green. My favourite video game of all time is Duke Nukem 3D.

Though I would drool at the latest hardware, I know it's not within my reach, but my specs aren't shabby. I'm sporting:
Intel Core 2 Quad @ stock 2.4GHz (I'm not much of an overclocker)
nVidia GeForce 8800GT 512MB (gets pretty hot with only a single slot cooler)
4GB of DDR2 RAM (I'm too lazy to check the specifics)
Gigabyte DS3L motherboard (was pretty cheap when I picked it up and it's pretty decent quality)
Antec 500W PSU (sometimes I worry this will get in the way if I upgrade to a beefier GPU)

I find that the only game that really pushes the hardware is Crysis. I spend quite a bit of time playing Crysis Wars, it's quite fun. Crysis 2 is my most anticipated game. I live in Canada and I'm pleased to meet you all. Anything else I should add? :)
