Heh, I got my girlfriend into gaming. She played for a while on her laptop, then took my internship (damn GPA grumble grumble) and built a better desktop than mine. Now I'm trying to get her to play NS with me, so she'll pre-order NS2.
And I'm suffering from a huge case of nerd jealousy. My girlfriends computer is better than mine, and this is causing some terrible issues. I play on it while she's at work, and pretend it's mine.
