It's likely that we will move to a new platform sometime after the Microsoft Vista official launch later this month. The Pentium 670 is getting long in the tooth and we really need to move our test platform to a Core 2 Duo CPU at the least along with a DirectX 10 video card (probably 8800GTX) to support the new features of Microsoft Vista.
