At 1280x1024,looks like my 4870 is performing accordingly and your 8800GT performs the same as the GTX 280.
Yep.... i think its because at 1280x1024 its maybe more cpu bound, i do seem to get some very good frame rates with my rig.

In the crysis benchmark tool i score.. 45FPS DX10 and 49FPS DX9

thats at 1280x1024 high settings no AA

so what does this mean? So if I want more fps in WiC at 1280*1024 I should upgrade CPU, possibly Q9450 and overclock it, not the video card? My current Q6600 CPU is at 3.2GHz
