the big problem with the benchmarks you guys posted (Crysis and Far Cry 2) is that not a lot of people play those games....

You've got to be playing a game that you play a lot...I'm a COD4 junkie, and on my rig (see sig) I get OVER 125 fps all the time, and that's where I have the game frame capped. I know that on certain maps I get over 250 fps at 2560x1600 with 4xaa and highest AF. That's with all the stuff in the Nvidia control panel left alone.

A friend of mine is playing Empire at War right now (the new one) and on his 30" with a GTX 280 with medium settings his frame rates drop to below 10 sometimes!! LOL

I think that if he were to run another 280, he'd have no problems at all...

It all depends on what games you want to play....that info would help us to help you!

What are you on glue??? Maybe not a lot of people that you know,,,,,,,but a lot of people that I know are into FPS more than strategy RP's.....kind of an odd comment...
