For a guy who hates consoles and their games its funny to see you sporting a console port avatar.

Well since damn near every PC game is a port... there aren't many gaming avatars you can use that you can't say that about...so that was a pretty lame comment. lol.

For a PC gaming elitist you aren't very elite if you have to wonder why I would own multiple high end video cards.

Much like you think it sucks to play games on a console, I think it sucks to play PC games like The Witcher 2, Rift, or even Crysis 2 on a single 480 given the settings I play with. You can laugh your ass off all you want, but I've owned your graphics card and it wasn't enough.
Never said I was a PC Elitist.. you did.

I have a 120Hz 22" LCD and game at 1680x1050 and I get great performance in all the games I play with everything maxed out. I've had SLI setups and the microstutter just kills it for me so I've decided to stick with single GPU. Also I'm running my 480 at 900 core, 1800 shader and 2100 memory... its water cooled and NOT even close to stock

At 1680 x 1050 I'm surprised you don't have to periodically kick your 'puter just to keep that screamin' 480 awake.

Wait you game at 1680x1050 on the PC and your complaining that the graphics on console suck? Jesus game at a high end PC res before you open your trap. I game at 2048x1152 on my PC...

Really? The higher resolution makes the same textures look better? You don't really know what you are talking about do you?

I'd take 120Hz over 2048x1152 anyday. lmao. A stock 920 isn't a HIGH END PC... I've got a 2600k @ 4.8Ghz with the CPU and GPU water cooled. Maybe you should try playing on a high end PC too.

When that 2600K nets you more than a handful of FPS then you'll have rooms to say something.

No, I ain't kidding. 5 FPS here, 7 there... big game breaker.

Show me 25 - 30 FPS+ difference between a stock 920 and your heavily oc'd 2600k. Then I'll give a damn.

EDIT: Then for a more fair comparison, find results of a 920 that's at least running at 4.2GHz.

Not a single game is held back by the 920. You think 8 threads at 2.66Ghz is insufficient for gaming, especially at higher resolutions?

The 4.8ghz 2600k beat a 3.6Ghz 920 by a nice percentage in each game.... in fact read the conclusion... Kyle is building Steve a 2600k after these results. can you imagine a stock 920. Serious LuLzFAIL dude.
