Pfft, yes try the Volcano level, JaKup, ouch.

The reason I suggest God mode is because the idea isn't to play the game but to use it as a 'hell like benchmark'. Going into an area that is already demanding with nothing happening then stirring up as much activity/effects as possible by drawing all the baddies you can. That's what I did in the Factory and Volcano level, stir them all up first then kill 'em. Guess what got me 20FPS in the Volcano level? Those eight plus Big Trigen chain rocket nuking me together.< Talk about system stress.

Here's that bench with the card OCed and my system to levels I named before at 1280x1024, 4xAA/8xAF and everything very high/ultra high.

BTW those are very nice default scores, you won't have a problem in the uncoming games at all. Honestly I have XT fever so I may end up pawning off the Pro for the XT, eventhough I don't need it.
