    Good RPG sale at Direct2drive. Witcher 2 for £14, which i think may be a mistake as it's only supposed to be 40% off.

    Fable III, dragon age II, Two worlds-ii and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II Retribution are the other titles with hefty discounts

    It won't :p At least certain areas, it's such a taxing game, I was running nearly 60 fps flat for a long time in the beginning, but then I went to go outside and I got attacked in a hallway and my frames I think dropped to under 5 fps, I lagged around and escaped.

    Yeah, I always knew it was a demanding game, but I nearly shat a brick when I saw the requirement. At least now I'll have some more motivation to upgrade. Unfortunately, there are a ton more important things for me right now than my e-peen :(

    I picked up Dragon Age 2 on D2D for about $10 today too. Seems to be a good weekend for game deals.

    Also just bit on that Metro deal. Look forward to giving it a try.

    well at 5 bucks I decided to pick it up, downloading now. gonna take a bit as my gaming raid crashed from an overclocking error last night. well that is to say I f'd up my bios due to an overclocking issue and a side effect was my gaming raid borked. not a big deal just need to install everything again from my backup drive.

    but needless to say i wont be downloading metro untill the other titles are restored.

    I got it when it came out and in no way imo was not worth $50 lol. $5 is like a steal hehe as i do think it's worth $20.

    Borked raid :(. If using intel raid you might of got away with booting up of a single drive and fixing it even with failed ones.

    i just picked up metro 2033.

    I was thinking of getting borderlands, but is it worth it for single player? I'm pretty sure i wouldn;t be able to find a server for co-op anywhere near me.

    Seeing Metro 2033 on sale reminded me that I've yet to finish it. I picked it up a while back for $5, definitely worth it! So I got back into it for about an hour tonight and shall pick it up tomorrow.

    My cards are loud while playing this game!

    raid 0 is very unfriendly for recovery. at any rate it's only 2 hours of file copy followed by 20 minutes total to get the updater to detect the game files.

    Impulse is having a sci-fi weekend sale. I grabbed Space Pirates and Zombies after playing around with the demo for a bit. Pretty addictive game.

    I love this game. In fact, I've been playing it more than BC2, as of late.

    Make sure it's on AAA (shift the AAA slider towards performance in the driver settings if necessary), and you might want to consider turning off DoF and tesselation. That is a more practical and also (no offence intended) less silly manner of increasing fps than going CFX or SLI.
    If a HD4850 can handle M2033 @High Settings in Direct3D 10 mode at 1280x1024 (i.e. if 30-60 fps are good enough for you, else it's mediuminstead of high), everything at the performance level of a GTX470 or higher should handle the game at "HD" resolutions pretty well.

    1280x1024 is hardly a standard I would use to measure a game playing on High settings. I'm talking about playing this beast maxed, not talking about playing at a resolution that I last used in 2005. Of course dropping settings will help, I haven't ever tried my 6950 with M2033, but my experiences were with 2x 5850's, and it ran great for the most part (absolutely maxed at 1920x1200), but there was times that it would suddenly cripple that setup, and I don't mean 25 fps, I mean 5, just flat out break its legs and throw it to the ground and laugh at it.
