GTX260 Core216 sc - Page 2

post #11 of 35
ARGH no you're right, I was thinking of a coupla reviews doing crysis on high, not ultra high - and only 2AA.

http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum...review-14.html

Crysis should have never been made anyway.

LOL... You're right. But think about the genius behind it though... A $50 game that wants you to spend $1200 worth of graphic cards (3x GTX280), $1000 CPU (Quad Xtremes), $400 Mobo, and $200 Ram to be able to play it to it's full potential is hilarious.

I know I will get a lot of "disagreements" with that last comment but, I know that when I upgraded from 8800GT to GTX260sp216, the very first game I benched was the Crysis, even though I don't play it. And every GPU reviews always includes a Crysis as part of their bench.

Has any other game made such an impact on how we measure the worth of our computer's performance?

I have the 22" samsung 226bw and I love it. No problems so far. Though I would really like a larger monitor, maybe a 30".

Edit: I just noticed it wasn't on that page someone posted for you. The 226bw has a 3000:1 contrast ratio compared to a 1000:1. I got mine at frys if that helps.

You have to understand the difference between dynamic contrast ratio vs. static contrast ratio when comparing monitors. Some claim to have a really high contrast ratio, but it doesn't matter if it's dynamic, since it's "enhanced for your viewing pleasure". Truth of the matter is that it really doesn't matter as long as you stay above 1000:1 contrast ratio.

I enjoy Crysis Wars (multiplayer a lot). And Crysis Warhead greatly improved performance, basically the equivalent of the original Crysis with the optimized profiles.

Much better than 22" resolution which is equivalent of a 20" but stretched 2"

24" is 1920x1200
