the lynch pin to how long hardware will last is how long software develops can be bothered doing things the right way!!!
GRAW, Oblivion sometimes, Call of Juarez, Brothers In Arms, etc all look crappy yet I get like 30-45 fps in them. GRAW especially though looks hidious and runs choppy.
Half-Life 2 always looks AMAZING with PERFECT lighting yet runs at like 130 fps. Why don't they make more games this efficient?
that about sums up my sentiment. my 6600GT will play HL2 at max graphical settings, with AA and AF at 1600x1200 with pretty great frame rates. it looks awesome. i have to play GRAW at ABSOLUTE minimum and still get poor performance. upgrade? god no. i'm not paying for their screw ups
. it would be great if everyone thought likewise because then they might clean up their game
