That crysis ss on your desktop looks sexy. If you have to site 8-10 feet away, that isn't for me. I am crap with fps and probably rts when I have to do that. I just have to have my head 2 feet max from the screen. 1 and 1/2 is preferred though. It is probably ok in mmos though. Sometimes I lean back and am a good 3 feet away from the screen when I get bored in those.

6 ft. away is really not too far away for something this big.....this really makes me want a larger monitor running at a better resolution than 1080 P.....however I know that would mean I would need WAY more video card power.....which I can not afford.....lol
