Aaaah Commodore, what fond memories my C64 and Amiga 500/600s gave me. It was quite sad to see Commodore take such a sudden deathly dive all those yrs ago, leaving the door wide open for the IBM compatibles and Macs to take over.

But for those of you who lived and loved the dominating decade of Commodore, this should put a smile on your faces. The Inquirer recently found out that although Commodore is but a small dutch company these days, they're sticking the brand onto high-end PC gaming systems with NV 7950GX2s and AMD FX-60s :D

IF YOU remember Commodore 64 that means you are not a teenager any more. We certainly spent a piece of our life playing with that machine in the dawn of PC gaming.

Now, the Commodore brand sits on a range of high-end PCs equipped with Nvidia's 7950 GX2 card and an AMD FX 60. Commodore is now a Dutch company and is testing the waters to see is there a market for such a PC with this legendary brand on it.

The company picked a nice looking case packed some high-end hardware to beef up ye olde Commodore logo.
