Also, I noticed you switched tracks in NFSMW to my favourite track. Mind you 4min is still slow :D
It's also interesting that you should note that a higher fps makes faster cars more playable, it would seem that it would be better to sacrifice detail for speed in that case.

For the money, these cards are damn hard to beat :D

Much thanks for actually doing the high-res WS tests though. I personally think it's a bit funny that you can play Oblivion at 1920x1200 but apparently not 1600x1200 on the ol' tube (seeing that the resolution tends to make aliasing less noticible), but whatever. I was really looking for confirmation that I'd be able to play at 1920 with some level of detail, and this is just what I needed. Bit r teh
I suppose watercooling any brand card voids the warrantee, but what can I do...

There are alot of people around that say 2x 6800GT < 7800GT and so on, i would be interested to see if its true
(the general rumour seems to be 1x new card performs better then 2 of the previous ones)
I would ask for crossfire benchies, but as far as ive herd so far crossfire doesnt improve, or worsens framerates and such
