Re: GTX 285 vs 8800 GTX SLI in Crysis
Im not saying the GTX285 is not a good upgrade from 8800GTX SLI, the framerate was smoother and more stable, however not enough to warrant a purchase for $343. I wanted to get this benchmark out there so people could get an idea before going out and buying the 285. Im all about waiting for future generations. I told myself after these results to wait until my 8800s could not handle games at a playable (30fps+) framerate. As for lost money, you lose money as soon as you buy a video card like an automobile. That's understood as soon as I sign the line and hit accept.
