Looks pretty awesome and doesn't run TOO bad considering all of the work that the GPU is doing.

My test results for 1600x1200 with all settings maxed, sound ON, and no AA:

27 average, 16.5 min, 64.5 max

It sort of seemed like everything was moving in slow motion most of the time though. Like when he shoots the tin cans, they sort of float away really slowly.

This is one I'd really like to have a GT300 for though.

BTW, anyone else think that nvidia should design some low priced PCI-E 1x cards for physics processing? Like 9500GT or 9600GT class GPUs on cards that will work in systems with only one full x16 slot. Like mine.

I just tried it again at 1024x768 with motion blur off and it ran much smoother and seemed to run at the right speed. Hopefully the slow motion issue is related to the demo playback and not the game engine. It looks like slow-mo bullet time when the framerate drops.

45.6 avg, 23.5 min, 66 max

Vsync is on but the refresh rate is stuck at 60.

Your gonna need a beefy PSU. I was gonna use a 260 gtx and 8800gtx combo but I would need a way bigger power supply than my 800watt{for safety sake}

Looking at the modular 1000w Corsair. Not sure if Corsair use Seasonics as the base for the high end models though. Will have to do some research.

My GTX260 216's run just fine on this 700w PSU. Granted I only have 1 HDD, 1 DVD-ROM and my X-FI

Seems like 800W would be enough for that and the biggest concern would be the amperage of the +12V rails

The 260's dont suck up as much power as an 8800gtx. I'm also running 2 sata optical drives,q6600@3.2,4gigs ram, and three sata hard drives on a 780i. I would probably wanna have at least an 850 watt i would think.

Will try tonight, but I bet it will be a slideshow without PhysX GPU card.

The one millor dollar question for ATI users: will it run with an ATI card and an Ageia PhysX card (if you can find one)?. Or only supports PhysX on nVidia video cards?.
