Its not bragging. Fact is, people with higher resolutions, especially LCD's, need to keep their res. 1920x1200 doesnt look nearly as good at 1680x1050 or whatever else you want to try. And you need a faster PC, to run at a higher res. Thats just the way it is.
I got a 2405FPW the first week it came out, and its "forced" me to upgrade many times. Going SLI and Crossfire to get playable frames at 1920x1200. Crysis is going to put the hammer down at that res, especially with eye candy turned on. He said hes going to wait for the next refresh to play Crysis, which I can agree with. I bought Stalker several months ago, just after I got home from being away and half way around the world for 7 months. My machine is too slow to run it at 1920x1200 how I like it. It was "top end" (overclocked Opty and Crossfire) when I left, not now. Intel finally stepped up to the plate, and a much faster NV card is out. And now its too slow for me. So Im going to wait till I upgrade to play the game. I dont want to run at a lower res, or turn down visuals. Thats not how I like to game. So Ill just wait, but Ill have to wait even longer, because I may get sent away again. So Im holding all decisions on what I find out in the next few months.
Once again, we seem to be in similar situations. I was in Iraq over the winter... you were too eh? Anyway, I've been STALKin it up at 1440x900 so I can keep all of the settings and filtering on high. Hopefully I'll soon be complementing my GPU with another, but I think I may hold out until Crysis shows me what I really need to run at 2560x1600. I may just need to wait for the Christmas refreshes and get 2 new ones altogether. I'd rather suck it up for now than have $800 worth of GPU that still doesn't do Crysis justice!
