Re: Vanguard... what an improvement
What kind of video card are you running, UDawg? Because even my X850XT started to struggle with games like F.E.A.R. on medium settings (1152x864, 2xAA), and I had that card less than two years ago.
A little over two years ago, I think I had a Radeon 9800 Pro which gets its ass kicked by games today at medium settings. Oblivion runs around 20-25fps on medium settings w/ it.
This often comes down to semantics, because everyone's description of "good performance" differs. Mine is anything with good graphics and over 30fps consistently. I stand by my original statement, even if you may happen to disagree with it.
