true. If we knew what resolution he's playing at we could really help him out, right now its a shot in the dark.

Personally I don't think I'd be happy with BF BC2, Crysis, or Metro at 2560x1600 knowing that even at my resolution (1680x1050) they're all relatively slow if you crank the options. I'd imagine a 480 wouldn't be a whole lot better than my overclocked 470 either.
