Default Re: GTX 285 vs 8800 GTX SLI in Crysis

"After four generations one would think the 285 would outperform two 8800GTX by a considerable margin. I guess not."

I am not bashing the 285. I just started this thread because I think that the 285 is not a HUGE jump from 8800GTX SLI. HUGE as in going from lets say, a 7800GT to 285. Thats a HUGE jump and definitely worth it. Yes, I did notice a bit smoother gameplay and lower temps with ALL my games, but I did not feel that the price I payed was justified by the minor improvements.
