the way i see it : if the gfx card can play Crysis @VH smoothly then i'll be safe with any other upcoming big title (Alan Wake , Project Offset , FarCry2 ..) , if not then i have to worry.
The fact that Crysis is a bitch to run at very high in the first place doesn't help at all either. We're talking a jump 80-90% on VH Crysis, but because the performance was so low in the first place, it's still unplayable. It's like comparing 4 -> 8fps and 18 -> 36fps. Both are 100% improvements, but only one is playable...
