What's all this talk of Crysis looking crap?!? It really doesn't. It may run crap, but no way in hell does it look crap in Very High DX10.

Who in the world would run 4870X2 with normal coolers :P Il get something else for em than stock.
And one 4870X2 isnt just a bit faster than one GTX280 its a lot faster ^^

I would generally agree Crysis doesn't look realistic, but it is still the most technically advanced game on the market.

As for artistic style along with the technical side, my favorite goes to Uncharted.

Oh yes, Far Cry 2 looks good also! I was picking from games already on the market though. Uncharted is my favorite.

I also think Rage from Id Software is looking great.

I don't think it looks like anything special to be honest... I think COD4 looks better than Crysis.

LOL! Go deadeye :D

Most people. In fact, unless you are going water cooling, then the stock fans are way better than any aftermarket crap you buy. Not to mention it voids any warranty you have on your card if you change it.

That "review" is a load of shit. Sorry.

Try something that uses no biased hardware reviewers testing it on more than just one game that happens to prefer ATI graphics cards in general.

No offense but I sell PC hardware for a living and have done so for the last 15 years... I would like to think I have some idea what I'm talking about when it comes to what's what, and what's bullshit.

Well i had other review thats a lot better but its in Finnish... and that was the quickest I could find and aftermarket coolers are good Ive used 1 in my X1950Pro it was a hell lot more silent and like 50times as better in cooling :D well it was 700g of aluminium+120mm fan... So don't call aftermarket stuff bad even some of them are. Here's another example my CPU now has Noctua 12 cooling system its a big metal thing where you just put fan It cost me 50bucks but with it i can easily overclock my cpu from 1.8ghz to 3.25ghz or even higher and still my cpu stays under 55c all the time.
EDIT here's link for the Finnish review and thats the site I usually use
