Yeah but most of us run at 1280x1024 or 1440x900....so FPS should be a bit more than in the charts.

i ran it 1440x900 on my 2900pro and fx62 and it was running pretty nicely on ultra settings under xp (with the changing of system files of course). no complaints here.. that was w/ 2xAA as well.. had an occassional hick up.. but that was okay... couldnt tell you the fps.. but if its anything like the mp demo... should be about 40 fps average

wow 10/10...

and really the fps were explained there low but lag free, and cpu usage on crysis isnt as much as you'd believe, reading several reviews they said something like 32 fps was "unbelievably smooth" for the first mission (they didnt go farther sadly to test farther)

Thats becasue Oblivion was horribly coded just like Test Drive Unlimited. I play it quite easily.
I don't know Oblivion about being "horribly coded" maybe you were referring to Neverwinter Nights 2?? Now thats a game horribly coded and still is Neverwinter Nights 2 Hardware Performance Guide - Features at GameSpot.

Laugh out loud at that. It's pretty much true, don't you guys all think so?
