Not a review for once!

But one's coming for Indigo Prophecy, I swear.
First off, I'd like to wish everybody a happy New Year! Why is New Year capitalized? Respond and explain it to me!
So for the past week or so I've been buying games off of Steam, six as of typing this, three of them being a game I've already beaten one way or another.
S.T.A.L.K.E.R, Bioshock, and good ol Street Fighter IV I've already played, Jade Empire, Indigo Prophecy, and Torchlight being games I haven't but here's the thing, my graphics card is a (Even though an sounds better) NVidea 7300. I'm pretty dead-set on buying this graphics card but is it good enough to run those games at I don't know, decent frame-rates and settings? For a point of reference, here's a screen cap:

 Gen because I am way too lazy to unlock Akuma for the fourth time
That's SFIV running at 640x480 ladies and gentlemen, with every setting as low as it can get and I think that's the only way to keep it around 60 FPS.
On another note, people who play SFIV on the PC PLEASE KEEP WITHIN YOUR SYSTEM'S CAPABILITIES.
 
Want to hear a crazy New Year's Eve story though? That sucks, because I only have a pretty mundane one.
So normally my work schedule is Friday-Monday and 5-9 PM, awesome I know. Today though, the restaurant was expected to be pretty busy so I got there around 4, notice I said got there and not, clocked in there. So after six hours of the busiest I've ever seen The Shack (Not Radioshack damnit), after being called blind by a 70 year old woman that I absolutely hate, I realized that I hadn't clocked in. Luckily my mom, who's like the head waitress, promised me that she'd tell the owners that yo, don't cheat me out of $40 come paycheck day.

Last Few Thoughts Before I Go To Bed...and I love tables
 Got a Mario beanie for Christmas from my momma (Bye bye Santa hat profile picture!), so watch out LordOfUltima! You have some beanie-wearing competition!
 I need more Steam friends so if you have any of those games, especially SFIV, add OwnlyUzinWonHan.
 I'm gonna end up having a 360 (FINALLY!), a TE Fightstick (FINALLY!!), and a Wii or graphics card (Finally?) in like two weeks, how crazy is that?
 I really feel bad about not participating in Stang's tournament, but hey, this paycheck I'm holding in my hand will buy my friends 360 as soon as I can get a hold of him.
 Watching these high-school football All-Stars games are reminding/bummingmeout of how good I used to be at soccer.
 
So uh, discuss I guess?

Gen is only guy I have unlocked on the PC version also but in all seriousness. You'll never play that version ever again. :P

@SpecialBuddy: Wouldnt you just need gen and then stop there?

@SpecialBuddy:  Really I bought the Steam version for two reasons:
1) So I can play some SFIV at my dad's apartment, because he doesn't want to get a router.
2) It's been a while since I played and hey, while I'm on this spending spree why not buy something I already know that I like?
 
How are you doing in Stang's tournament anyway?

New Year's Day is a recognized National Holiday, so I guess that is why it gets the 'caps'.Really, nothing particularly holy about it 'sides calendar change.
