Man it really shows that having a super UXSWVGA resolution monitor doesn't really pay. F.E.A.R. dipping to ~40 FPS on a $8000 computer? That's absurd, but not as absurd as Oblivion giving it a black eye with 15 FPS. Sure these are possibly the two most graphically demanding games available, but it does show that nothing can feed enough lines of rez for those huge displays without sacrificing some candy.

Bring on the next generation already!

Those games really are too demanding for their result. Also if you turn off a little bit of effects (you don't need 14x super enhanced AA at this res) you can get 60 FPS even in those games. I like the high res on more reasonably demanding games like BF2, even though it's graphics are a little old. Here is some screenshots I took. This is the best settings running at 2048x1536 and FPS never dips below 60.

Bad comparison in benchmarks. Note that there is not a single Crossfire set up in Tomshardware benchmarks. There is one rig with a single X1900XTX, and that one scores 13.91 FSP in Oblivion. In Crossfire, it'll definately score better, probably outscoring the Tomshardware monster, but falling short of the fastest Quad SLI rig.

I tried that a while ago and it just stretches out the image to fit a 2560x1600 screen, but doesn't actually increase the pixel count.

Only on the menus! When you get into the actual game then you will notice a huge difference.
