Bought SimCity4 today

I don't have time to play it much, as my gaming quota is pretty much filled already. But I wanted to see how it had implemented one of my favorite concepts, detail on demand. I want a gain to give meaning both close-up and in a remote, impersonal way, depending on how involved you choose to get. SimCity4 seems the closest approach to that idea yet, but I may be wrong. Now to install it, while my DSL is elsewhere engaged (downloading Hikaru no Go, as is good and proper). I hear SC4 is a real performance hog, barely playable at the most high-end home PCs. I hope to be back later with more details!
