Default Re: 260 GTX good enough?

I am using Quarl's Texture pack for Oblivion.

Jericho is certainly not a joke when you consider I am running 4XAA smoothing, you would not be able to do that with an 8800GTX at 1920X1200 resolution and get playable FPS. I remember how bad that game stressed the 8800GTX at 1680X1050 with just 2XAA smoothing, it ran fine without it but once smoothing was turned on it was very demanding.

Bioshock I failed to mention I am running 4XAA as well, turn on the AA and that game becomes pretty demanding at high res and again would be to much for an 8800GTX. UE3 engine games are a breeze until you combine AA with it.

DiRT I guess you never played because its actually very demanding, even more so than GRID.

Tested it this morning and it took about the same hit as the other games mentioned, still very playable for me using all high settings with 2XAA running around 35-45fps.

Sytem specs just FYI:
