Default Re: Games that require a GTX295 to run at 1920x1200 4xAA

A better investment of the OP's money would be going to a quad-core CPU and then investing in either a 2 GB GTX 285 or 1792 MB GTX 275.
I find that hard to believe. maybe you are right, I dunno... hard to judge without some specific benches. I can always overclock my cpu. I know it does 3.7GHZ just fine, and that was in summer, and it's now winter and quite cold.

EDIT: looks like you are way off the mark. Have a look at this benchmarking:

There is only 1fps difference between a GTX295 paired with a core i7965 and a core2quad9650 and a core2duo8600 @ 3.66ghz.
