2 8800 Ultras should really be more than enough for any game out right now, Crysis being the hardest hitter at the moment, especially when that rig is pulling 19,500+ scores from 3dmark06.

IMHO, it's lazy coding and not the current hardware, devs figure why bother to code 200 lines to make a bullet hole (just an example) when he can get away with 100 lines since the hardware can take up the slack.

plus, it's also great for getting people to spend big bucs on upgrades.

or a whole new rig, who knows for sure, but it's nuts that these monster rigs have low fps in any game.

hahah crysis is a walk in the park compared to 3dmark vantage. give that a try one day. At 1680X1050 with details at max, I think my system gets at the most around 7~10 fps average in the first demo. It doesn't perform well enough in the whole testing to actually even get a score
