I'm sure this is pure marketing, and a GTX560 SLI or HD6870 CF and above should max out this game at Ultra at 60fps.

I doubt we really need 2x 6970's or 580's to do it...

I'm just so scared of SLI because of past experience and horror stories that I'm not sure I even want to grab another 570 even though that would be my best upgrade path.

Applications that utilize HT don't come NEAR the gains of overclocking.

HT hurts overclocking dramatically.

That's why I still say i5-2500k > i7-2600k because the i7 takes more voltage to OC = hotter.

Overlocking > HT

I think you are right as well. I think they strategically left out the resolution they were talking about so that people get into a frenzy and create buzz. Sli 580's/6970's are probably needed for eyefinity or surround but not at single monitor resolutions.

agreed, but at high.

ultra MIGHT need the 580s.

Believe me, I know the benefits of turning HT off and overclocking, check my sig. I wouldn't necessarily say, outside of cost, that the i5 is better than the i7 though. You can turn off HT. I imagine that i7's with HT off may overclock better than i5's.

Also, while almost every game I tested performed better with HT off. 3dmark11 performed better with HT on. This leads me to believe that if a game is properly optimized for HT than it will be beneficial.
