Default Re: Over 30 fps on Veryhigh with 4xAA/16xAF in 1600x1200 * WOW!

I think it sucks that u have to play it in the native resolution, really. 21" CRT monitors FTW...
I found Crysis playable at 1440x1080 (4:3 res for a CRT) with tweaked high settings in DirectX 9 with no AA and 8xAF, but I didn't play that far into it.

It was "pretty smooth" at 1280x960 with the same settings... but still not close to perfectly smooth. I didn't expect it to be though.

I just wish they would show some 3 Way SLI numbers with realistic graphics settings. People shooting for 30fps average in their benchmarks is worth absolutely nothing to me since I wouldn't play the game like that. That's why I stopped reading [H] reviews.

Maybe I'm just a freak but "smooth" movement looks a hell of a lot more realistic to me than smooth lines. You can crank up the settings all you want, but at some point you are no longer playing "real time"... you're watching a pre rendered scene from half a second ago. I prefer my games to be as far from that as possible.
