    I agree, when developers actually try to use the current generation of gpus it really does show.... unfortunately with consoles being so popular and using very old technology it means that PC gamers lose out.

    Only big companies generally try to riskier tactics now and thats kinda left it with crytec and EA, but i somehow doubt their next crysis game wont be as good as they have now ported it to the consoles so a significant portion of their development time has gone to that instead of optimizing the PC version and improving graphics etc etc .

    I hope all the consoles burn and stuff so that we get an influx of studios really trying to use dx-11 and making epic games that look great and have awesome gameplay... normally they only get one right!.

    It's soooo pretty. Although, if you're going to put yellow 4x4's in the jungle, there should be dinosaurs.

    Agreed that the amount of console ports does a disservice to PC gaming, but seeing as I can't afford a top spec GPU atm, I'll let it go for now.

    Yeah graphics seem to have plateaued recently, probably because of console ports and current gen consoles starting to show their age, maybe it's just getting to the point of diminishing returns but, nothing really challenges my 9800GT yet tbh. I have to keep the AA down on the very latest stuff, but that's about it.

    I'm really not impressed by this, maybe I'm expecting too much physics but I didn't think the basic textures looked as life like as even the unreal 3 engine.

    On the flipside, maybe Crysis 2 will have some decent optimisation for us, the gentry of gaming.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    all i have to do now is upgrade to a systole that can run the benchmark to look that good. those the antec logo mean that the full version will be filled with adverts too the deep sea one had msi on it.
