Maxed to me is every setting on its highest with the game running smoothly (min FPS in comparison to monitors refresh rate etc) at the highest resolution possible.
For most people that's simply not an option.
What's more acceptable, and logical, is finding the right balance between performance and graphical quality.
But to those who can do what's set out in the first paragraph for every game out there? Kudos.
I built my PC to run games, and run games well. It achieves that and I'm happy with the end result, though I want more power! Mwahahaha!

You really shouldn't be crying about the e-peen generation on an overclocking forum. That will just come back and smack you in the face one day I guarantee it.Edited by Lifeshield - 4/14/11 at 11:40am
