Why? Is there a book or something? a blog? Look...my 8800GTS runs best at 1024x768. That's the point where performance and looks meet for me.

I've got a friend who'd run games a 800x600 and not care...as long as he could enjoy the game.

Not even gonna try Server 08 and check the difference in performance? O wait.. i forgot, Server 08 is free for most. And you being the status symbol you are... you dont take hand outs.

You. Are. THE ZOHAN.
Anyway back on topic before this gets closed because of us.
OMG: Look at my post count.

Jungle is coming. But really...FPS is about the same. Those water shots I had before were the most taxing I'd say.
My friend has a 9800GT and the same CPU and ram and he runs crysis on high with 8x AA
Not highest...he doesn't have DX10

Are you booting off your SSD?

lol that sucks..

and yes i'm booting from the ssd... windows vista seemed to load faster from it than xp does.. but it could be that i've now partitioned the disc.. while with vista i didnt.. i'm going to try reformatting again to get down to the bottom of this problem
