Yup. Oblivion on a 7900GT anyone? Of course not, its not possible. Not with all the eye candy anyway.

This, i think, is really my only concern too. You used to hear from everyone about how DX10 would give you the same eye candy on the same card and deliver 50% more FPS.
But of course, ****ty DX9 patches don't count do they? I'm guessing the whole engine code and game would have to be written in DX10 for us to see any real comparison.
I think also one hard realization for this forum to come to is the majority of people play their games on 1024x768 or 1280x1024. Although those would seem rather low to us, its the way it is, and therefore, from the benchmarks i've seen, the aweful DX10 patches aren't THAT terrible.
