That's fine with me too...unless you have to spend 60% more to get it. I have no qualms with what Nvidia is doing, the issue is charging such a massive amount for it and having a poor implementation at the same time.
On top of the "the more you buy, the more you save" slogan (which wasn't/isn't true), they'll be saying '"saving you money by making you wait till Nvidia titles go on sale so you can finally appreciate the features you paid generously for".
Also I had no input on RPM, still don't...unless they were going to charge more for it.
If PRM provided a 50% performance increase with a 10% reduction in IQ isn't it possible to just down sample until you're at the same frame rate you'd have had without RPM and actually get better IQ? Just thinking out loud.

Asus Sabertooth Z97 MkII 2
16gb G.Skill Sniper 2400Mhz
2x Kingston v300 120gb RAID 0
Seasonic 620w M12 II EVO
Cooler Master 212 Evo
I have pretty lights.
