Yeah it amazes me how people with other hardware report performance problems in some of the same areas yet folks crow about the 8800GTX.
I have seen plenty of posts from folks using other graphics cards, CPUs etc. Yes, that includes Crossfire users that have the highest end card.
If the 8800 was so flawed it wouldn't chew through every other game I own with high levels of filtering @ 1680x.
Having that small FPS increase between highest and lowest settings in the crafting room of Khal @ 1024x when it's full of players is not nVidia's fault. That's a CPU limited res and even more so @1024x lowest image quality. That's it, I am CPU limited in VG
They definitely need to tune VG and I wish them luck in doing it.
