OCZ got negative rep for their older Sandforce based SSD's, as they had some initial firmware issues.

The VERTEX 4 uses a brand-new indilinx controller(which later I found out is actually the very latest Marvell controller but modified, which is known to be the best for reliability), and I've had mine for around 2 months, it's perfect. Check out the OCN club for the Vertex 4, its solid as a rock.

I would highly recommend you buy one. It's even backed by a 5 year warranty.

Not the most accurate self benchmark, but figured I'd share how Borderlands 2 has ran so far for me. With everything maxed including (16x AA and FXAA turned on) , PhysX on low however since I'm using a 7970. Everything has been running at a smooth 62 fps (I limited it to this), very rarely dropping to mid 50's. It also doesn't look to use above 800 MB of Vram, during my playtime. The graphics look decent and I've put about 8 hours into it so far. Surprisingly however, it is only a DX 9 game so a little disappointing in that respect.

That being said I picked it up at GreenManGaming for $38, so anyone with reservations on buying this game that may tip the scales. I was unsure about the site, but as soon as I confirmed my purchase the steam code was displayed and I was able to download through steam. I used GMG20-AWDF9-Q1PEY for the coupon code at checkout and it saves you 20% on any game, not just Borderlands 2, until the 25th I believe.

Overall I'd say if you liked the first Borderlands I'd pick up the second, especially if you can catch it on sale like I did. I think there have been quite a few improvements over the first game and I feel it is more of a true sequel. It seems like a lot of sequels try and completely change everything, but this seems more like a sequel in the sense that it improves upon it's predecessor.

Edit: Meant to put FXAA not SXAA, also it doesn't appear to have an MSAA option due to being DX 9, unless there is a way to force this.

Well got the two crossovers setup, don't have time tonight to do shots of setup and talk about performance (will tomorrow) but figured I'd post my first screen at 4757x2560 (bezel corrected)

how the hell did you get the game to even boot in portrait mode? It just flickers and crashes for me in portrait at non bezeled 4320x2560 when I go to launch it

Running drivers 306.23, I boot up the game in window and then in game change res to the defined bezel corrected one, it just works. I'll talk about it tomorrow.

Great pictures. Really great. I need to purchase this game. The details and character model is amazing. I heard this game is even better than the first one.

I am glad to hear that a 7970 runs the game great. Considering that I will use FXAA instead of MSAA, and crank the physx all the way up, I should also maintan 60 fps.

Hey which game is that? The detail is fantastic. I will add this SS to the list.

Arkham City is an awesome game. The first game is awesome, this one is of the same calibur. I wouldn't say it's better because I think they're identical in game play. Arkham City is just bigger with more side missions. A worthy sequel!
