I'll add Crysis when the new one is released. Until then, that buggy POS stays off the charts. ;)

My System Specs


Frankly Crysis was the first game I checked on charts, when it was available, because most modern cards can play other games at 60-120 FPS anyway and it's hard to see the difference. Crysis may not be optimized, but it's a good benchmark tool that gives comparable information about the card.

I'd say one of the best benchmarking games is Far Cry 2 (IMO) since it's well optimized but still tough to run (assuming your monitor is appropriate for your videocard e.g. > 1920 x 1200 for a 5870).

Lo Mein said that, and I think he knows a little more about dancing than I do pal, because he invented it! Then he perfected it so that no man could best him in the club of honor.
Then he used his prize money to buy two of every whore on Earth. Then he herded them all onto a boat, then they all beat the crap out of every single one of him.
