Acutally DX11 won't have any effect on a mountain, because it is only applied to characters in the current games and still takes huge drop on fps. And you don't want to play Metro with DoF enabled, it halves your fps for some blur effect that actually worsens the image, because it doesn't let you see the entire game with all the detail.

Sure it does. Go play HAWX 2 or run Heaven 2.1/2.5

The entire purpose too of newer higher end cards is more memory for Anti Aliasing at higher resolutions.
lol wow im the opposite, as long as im getting at least 15fps im happy

Okay, I'll concede that I am not maxing either game out (which I had already openly admitted to with Crysis 2).

But, it depends on your tolerance, I guess.

I'm not trolling, I'm just offering an opinion. And opinions are neither right nor wrong. I know, some of you guys need an eye-bleeding 60FPS constant for your games, but I personally don't. Yes, I can tell the difference between 30 and 60 FPS quite clearly, but sometimes, it just doesn't warrant another $250 purchase.

I've forced bc2 into DX9 and found it more enjoyable without the annoying screen tearing and constant 100+ fps, but to each their own.

dude there are tons of people who would be happy using a 9800GT as their primary card.

I put an old X1300 Pro in a guys computer who has been poor his whole life and he about cried.

Totally not related dude. That's because your CPU is going way ahead of the GPU... Your CPU is restraining performance because your GPU can't keep up. Put a tri SLI GTX 580 there, and remove vsync, and CPU will be 100% at any resolution

Up until I sold one of my 8800gt sc's, they had served me pretty well in modern games.

Now that I only have one it's really starting to show it's age.

That doesn't make any sense either. If the CPU is so fast, wouldn't it retain that amount of load regardless of the resolution? If its restraining itself at a high resolution there's no reason it shouldn't at a lower resolution. The entire purpose of higher resolutions is to ensure that the GPU has more work to do. By your logic throwing in Tri SLi GTX 580s at 1024x768 is optimal and should be done by everyone but yet people insist on higher resolutions because of how they utilize the GPU more than the CPU.

It's also why at lower resolutions you can have a major CPU bottleneck because the GPU has little work to do and most of the work falls on the CPU.
