Arrow better to play well rather than play fast

"Inflate," what's that? Synthetic number generators like 3DMark and Aquamark are designed for quantity, not quality. All's fair in Onionmarks and war. There's no ambiguity in my world. Benchmarking is why God invented "Best performance" contol panel settings.

But benchmarking has no relevance to my daily gaming. "Best image quality" settings is my daily fare.

But even beyond that, my mere 5700 Ultra is in my main machine, while my 5800Us and 5900Us are currently in the closet. The convenience of a dual-DVI single-slot card overrides any "performance enhancement" from DVI+VGA dual-slot monstrosities.
I used to drive a Heisenberg, but whenever I'd glance at the speedometer, I'd get lost.
