But other than that, this idea has my vote for next years competition because people don't always have the cash to spend on i7's and such which really do boost your physics scores.
Another idea might to be run the competition with a benchmark that runs singlethreaded (3D03, or A3, etc) so i7 hexcores and quads are evenly matched against i5s perhaps that would level it out a little. Also maybe instead of SLI and Crossfire, running a single card but go back generations to see over history which team wins. Like this:
Team Red Team Green
R 2xx series GTX 7xx series
HD 7xxx series GTX 6xx series
HD 6xxx series GTX 5xx series
HD 5xxx series GTX 4xx series
But I'm biased since I mostly have older stuff right now and I'm liking this competition too, great to see these rigs posted and how badly I'm outclassed.
