    The sale lasts until Monday and is only for the US. Metro 2033 is my personal recommendation and it's only $12.50 right now! As for the quality of the THQ online store... I'm not too sure on that. Also, it says the platform is PC Download(They might charge you for downloading so back it up).

    I already own the Company of Heroes(Great and fun game BTW) collection from the Steam deal for 12.50 so I think I'll try out Dawn of War.

    EDIT: BTW, games like Metro 2033 and DoW2, they will give you a key on Steam to use from what I heard(Took one guy 45 minutes to get the email). So... Don't buy the "Extended Download Service" for those since it's pointless, because Steam lets you redownload as many times as you want. For everything else... Back up. They like to add those to the cart by default though.

    Been wanting to try Metro 2033, that game looks slick, probably will run like Crysis does on my computer, 30 FPS on high or medium settings, apparently it requires more juice to max out on DirectX 11 so my 5770 won't run it as well as it does Crysis.

    Well for Metro 2033, a 4850 HD can run it around 45-60 in closed areas Very High(DX10+) at 1280x720(AAA mode) but then once the god rays appear for areas especially outside, then it starts dipping to 30? in my experience. Those were guesstimates just to let you know, but it seemed playable. Or maybe it ran 30 fps with motion blur and Vsync? No idea. Playable at least and there's still room to turn down the settings or up the resolution. I don't have that card anymore to test with FRAPS though.

    Heck, I had to play the game on an 8600 GTS.
