Agreed, a 670 will push those games without breaking a sweat (obviously a 680 would do an even better job... but it will cost you another $130)

EDIT: Nevermind, i just was you are looking to apply this to a 120Mhz monitor. Yea, get a 680 Lightning.

If you wanted ultimate performance you could go with two 7870's which would cost similar to the 680 Lightning but destroy it in terms of performance. That would be much more complicated though. I still suggest the 680 Lightning...

For $300 I loved my 6870 CF setup, but I did have a fair share of performance issues with certain games. Can't say I recommend CF/SLi.

The worst FPS I had in Metro 2033 was 40 in some specific scenes, with my 670 PE (all max settings).
And it's not a good game for nvidia in every benchmark I've seen.
So, I'd say it's a prety descend card in terms of performance even if it's not a 680 lightning.

No, just no.

You didn't max all settings at 40 fps as min, that's not possible my friend.

Yeah, even the best cards go as low as 5fp/s.

Metro looks the same whether you run medium settings or max settings - simply lowering 1-2 settings and disabling physx will let it run fine, and it will almost exactly look the same. The engine isn't even that great, the fact that it runs so slow is quite dumb. Crysis 2 looks way better and runs much more fluid.

you have to short three resisters also all of which can be found in the first page

right, obviously there is more than one voltmod out there...
but this is the only way that involves manipulating the VID pins of the richtek controller, which is what we're talking about here.

Crysis1 and Warhead are still the best looking games when moded, nothing comes close. To bad SSAA wont work in Crysis frown.gif
