I just think that games become more demanding on hardware as graphical liimits are pushed. Such as Crysis. Even though it was poorly optimised it looked amazing when it was first realised! A step up from COD4.

It wouldn't make sense that a new game can come out that looks far better and has better and more interactive environments can be down to all development and programming. The hardware must be faster to deal with the new additions.

The hardware industry seems to be progressing much more than games need.
Unless you're playing on 6x 1600p monitors with 3D Vision.

"Then why are new GPU's being released that don't hit massive frame rates on games now?"
- It certainly depends on which GPU you're using. How about a GTX 590 ?


My point is, statistically, games haven't gotten much more demanding in 4 years, so what will they be in 4 years from now ?
According to the roadmap of Nvidia, GPU's are getting numerous of times faster with the release of the next few generations anyway.

But IF he decides to buy 2x 460's now, he is presumably going to be able to play games at max settings or near for two years or so. Considering how demanding the game industry has gotten in the past few years.

I definitely second the 460/560 Sli to max out anything at 1080p for quite a while.

But... The 590 can max games now. But could a dual gpu from 4 years ago max out todays most demanding games?

I agree with you that hardware is progressing faster than games at the moment. Pretty hard to disagree with that!!!

Its games having to keep up with hardware. Which i believe leads to graphical advancements in games or just lazy console ports :/

Games have progressed over the last 4 years, just not at the rate hardware has. Which is pretty fast at the moment.

COD4 is not as graphically taxing as Metro. Some games will be more/ less taxing from 4 years ago. It depends which games you compare it to.

Compare a top of the line game (Graphically) from 4 years ago and one from 2011. Excludes Crysis.

Hardware from 4 years ago may have been able to max it out. But not max out the game from 2011. Eg. 4870x2 vs 6990

The 4870x2 can NOT max out all games now.

Lets keep it friendly though! I agree with almost everything you just wrote, except that games havent become more taxing from 4 years ago. Maybe 2 years ago, but not 4.

I really hope you realised that the "" at the end was intended to make it a pun or joke because this is OCN.

Thats all, it was a joke. I know not everyone wants to overclock. I was poking fun at the people who ALWAYS tell people not be buy top of the line hardware because "THIS IS OCN".

Hahahaha

Yes, I agree.

I find it to be more value wise to buy the bang for the buck of the current generation than going for High end single GPU's even though they are more future proof.

Basically I agree with you. It's mere preference, I assume.
I'd like to get the absolutely most for my money, regardless of future upgrades. The GPU industy is advancing pretty fast, as we both mentioned. It's almost impossible to keep up.
I don't know how demanding upcoming games will be, but I honestly doubt they will demand much more of the hardware until I upgrade my rig next time.
Perhaps in a couple of years or so.

And thank you !

Im glad we sorted this out peacefully!

I totally agree with the bolded text too.

Hahahaha, the OP will find this little discussion quite useful actually!

Thread Starter 
this is a most enlightening discussion!
so im pretty much definitely going down the sli/xfire route, however, im not sure exactly which gpu to go with: 2x gtx 560 ti
2x 6950 1gb
2x 6950 2gb
Could i have some answers/opinions in terms of temperatures, performace, ocing potential, etc. (i wil be gaming at 1080p remember)

Non of those cards are particularly hot, or that loud.

performance wise from the cards you listed it goes:

2x6950 1GB
2x560 Ti (<- I'd suggest one with a 3rd party cooler already installed)
2x6950 2GB (<- May have opportunities to flash to 6970)

The 560 Ti will OC to 1Ghz with a third party cooler or extra vim cooling. A card like the MSI Twin Frozor will do it and the Gigabyte SOC version comes with a 1ghz OC by default. It rivals stock 570 performance sometimes.

The 6950 has the opportunity to be over clocked also but I'd recommend trying flash it to a 6970 for performance benefits past a basic OC.

But, if your gaming at 1080p you won't need to overclock any of those cards for good frame rates.

It up to you! Hope thats of some assistance though!
