Default Re: GTX 480: Worst GeForce card ever?

you should be able to run 8xaa easily. My 5870 does that no problem, so surely the GTX 580 would be able to do that.

Also, the 1090T is NOT a bottleneck. If it is, you ain't overclocking that sucker enough.

EDIT: wait, why is your Q9550 your primary? That 1090T is beastly on BC2. Seriously, get that GTX 580 on your Phenom II 1090T rig, and watch your framerates in BC2 soar!
