i recorded both timedemos myself during gameplay. the manual playback +fraps method introduces a lot of variations, and dont get me started on the way hardocp presents their benchmarks.

i hope you're not looking at 1024x768 which is quite cpu limited in most games

I Try to run my Games at native if possible, otherwise i try for Resolutions that match my Aspect Ratio, My Monitor is a 5:4 (1280x1024) and there arent many Aspects like that, I will upgrade to a 24" Monitor to support 1920x1200.

Looks nice, but I think I can hold in there for the next gen. Thanks for the review.
Im still trying to figure out whats causing my computer to lose power... Maybe video cards?

lol refunding my gtx 295 was very heartbreaking especially when I heard the 4890's fans.

Reading this thread gives me hope for the future when I go crossfire :laugh:
