After you take down a huge building and there is smoke and pieces still failling the framerate tanks into the 20s in dx10 running 1680x1050, 4xaa, 8af. You're on crack if you are telling us it never drops under 60 @ 2048x1536 2xAA and 16af with one GTX 280. Nice try.

I've got a 4Ghz Q9550, 8GB ram, GTX 280 overclocked (738 core, 1260mem, 1566 shader) and Raid 0 WD 640GB HDs running Windows 7 x64.

Where is the fun in watching the entire buildings collapsing with 18-20fps? I hoped that we would be watching the destruction with a good framerate given the power of our systems. Oh well...

I just checked again. A pretty solid 60 when running around or driving. It does drop to the 30s with allot going on but I just drove a truck through a giant building and the lowest I saw was 26fps @ 2048x1536 2xAA and 16af.
On your same setting, 1680x1050, 4xaa, 8af, I actually get over 60fps most of the time and no lower than 30 with major destruction going on. I'm not just running at the mouth thats why I was wondering why people with 280s would go to dx9 when the performance is so good. I did just finish with a new clean install of Vista 64 and I also have a Raid 0 setup and some major cooling on the GPU. I don't really know why. Maybe my systems drivers are more mature, what chipset are you running?.

Gigabyte UD3P (P45) with latest bios. Fresh install Windows 7 x64 with all the latest drivers. GPU and CPU water cooled. Using dx9 I'm getting min 40 FPS now, drops to the 20s just kill me.
