So.. what did you really think about it?

Geez, what a disgruntled crowd in here. If any of you can do better, then go find some benches that beat this one and quit your griping. I'd love to see them. It's not exactly easy to find a benchmark that pits all the most exotic graphics setups together.

Not everyone owns a 2560x res monitor, and when you throw in 8xAA, tesselation, etc like some of those titles had, I think 1920x can still give you a good idea of performance.

The only other thing they should've done, as has been mentioned, is to overclock the CPU a little more, like to 4GHz. I think that's holding back the Quadfire, especially.

i7-2700k @ 5.0 GHz
Nvidia GeForce 570 2.5GB Tri-SLI
Asus P67 WS Revolution (Tri-SLI)
OCZ Vertex SSD x 4 (Raid 5)
G.Skill 8GB DDR3 @ 1600MHz
PC Power & Cooling 950W PSU
