Default Re: Official HardOCP HL2 benchmarks

My question is does it really matter? If all top end card can pretty much do 1600x1200@4xAA/8xAF (provided you have the CPU)? And even if you don't, 1600x1200 with some AF pretty much seems to be a given. I know in my case, I'm so CPU limited anyway that it probably wouldn't matter what settings I was runing at, unless I was running at super high AA/AF @1600x1200 or greater. But, in my case, I don't even have a monitor that can do 1600x1200, so I could care less. As it is, this 6800GT can't fuly stretch its legs on my system... a card clocked 170MHz (core) faster would probably perform exactly the same.

just my thoughts...
