Careful, this is gonna sound bitchy!!

Wow, that's amazing, you can max our Crysis? On a 17" monitor at 1024x768? HOLY COW!! Or is it a 19"? Or wait...what resolution did you say? YOU DIDN'T!!!

Sorry...I'm just tired of reading "I get 2946 FPS on Crysis with 200xAA and 280xAF" but then no one backs it up with what resolution they're doing it at... That's what matters!

Framerate and processing power depends solely on resolution. An 8800GT will max out Crysis, if the resolution is low enough...

So when I say I'm getting an average of 75FPS in Far Cry 2 Bench with everything on high and 4XAA and 8XAF at 2560x1600, it has relevance.... (just guessing there, but I'm sure I'm close)
