    Well first of all we both play at 1920x1200 not that lower res (though I know that graph not much diff). But, more importantly, all these goddamned benchmarks are single player. Multi is a different beast. Emphasis on beast.

    P.S. Thanks for the M4A1 Service Star 2 last night, E. ;)

    Reayth has the same exact GPU as me. Same RAM also. I have a 2600k and he has a 8150. I was getting almost 17 FPS on average more then him. Sometimes 25 FPS more.

    Yup.

    You'll stilll get a better performance boost with a better GPU.

    That I won't argue. I would go 570 for single card performance right now.

    On one monitor its not that big a deal. 45 FPS on Ultra 4xaa. Set it to auto (cant tell the difference) and I get 75 FPS.

    true I am running at 1920x1200. I can not afford right now to switch to Intel. I only got the Crosshair V a couple of months ago. i got it from LaughingMan at a deal. I tried OC'ing my card but it is a weird one:GIGABYTE GV-R585OC-1GD
    my monitor is of course 27" so I want to make the best decision so that my BF3 experience is best. then I can "wow" my COD n00bs into switching to BF3.

    Also mailman, for gaming I wouldn't put aside a 6950 2GB as well. They have been shown to push some high FPS in a lot of games

    Well then why don't you start with TLM for some OC advice. And order a better cooler. Perhaps a Corsair H-60 or whatevs?

    I don't understand the heavy barrel attachment
    It says it improves accuracy, but it makes my recoil worse

    What exactly does "accuracy" mean?

    So, apart from benchmarks that we see where no matter the CPU performance is about the same, in multiplayer things change? Why isn't anybody telling this?

    Because most benches are done single player for consistency man. Multiplayer is more CPU intensive. Its impossible to bench for multiplayer.

    Yeah...there's no good means to bench multi in any kind of scientific, properly comparative way. Which sucks big time. I mean, you can collect performance numbers same way they do for SP but they really won't be much use to anyone else.
