I must know, do you believe the D5000 will:
Blend, Run Quake, run Pron at a decent framerate, or work with Good Ol' Manual Lenses?
Actually . . . just the last one is my real question.

I hear it does well with 3Dmark...

Manual lenses will be interesting point. AI lenses will almost certainly work as they do on any other low-end Nikon, but I don't know about pre-AI at this point.

decent is not how i would describe it...

I use a nikon 50mm 1.8 E series on my d5000. it works with manual dial setting only (duh manual lens manual setting). it works great with the focus indicator in the viewfinder.
