If a game needs 100 gb/sec - especially one as old as Bloodrayne2 - then the fault lies with the engine and not the hardware.
Well, BR2 runs great in a 9800Pro @ 1280x1024 almost for everybody. (25 GB/s +-)
100 GB/s for 1280x1024 with SSAA 2x, equals to 1280*2 x 1024*2 = 2560 x 2048 rendering (4x times bigger), then shrinking to 1280x1024 (Super Sampling AA). It's huge rendering resolution, and the patch has an extra performance hit, cause it isn't native. So, 4*25GB/s makes sense for SSAA 2x.
This is just my personal taste, cause, i love to play with this image quality, and i need 120 fps minimum for this game.
I'm not going to tell anybody how to play or spend his money. Just try to enjoy
