I wouldn't be surprised, I suspect my 512MB 4850 holds me back. What CPU do you have? I have a feeling e8400 at stock speed also slows me down in some cases. :(
X2 550 at stock atm. I think the 3.1 ghz clock speed is going a long way. I am super impressed with both the new CPU and video card. I feel like I can go buy a 1080p monitor and not have to worry about my settings now.

Those STALKER screens are beautiful. Out of interest, what hardware would I need to run that on, say, 1360x768? Looking to upgrade my PC somewhat to run some stuff, but I'm only looking to run everything on a 19" widescreen at that resolution.

That's not a very high resolution. I'd say a couple of gigs of memory and either a GTX 250 or a HD 4850. What do you guys think?

So something like this would probably be OK?

I'm really just wanting to play the usual stuff; Crysis, Far Cry 2, Left4Dead2, Dawn of War 2 and so on. Still OK for that stuff?

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

Slowly scrolling down I honestly thought that was a photograph for a moment. Amazing.

This will be taken as a troll, but I have to say... ever since way back, i always thought PC games had some sort of starved look. I can't put my finger on it. They just look so jarring.

They certainly are high res though... Damn.

Sins of a Solar Empire : Fully Maxed (and yes, I did just fire up the game and start something, that's why it all says "NewPlayer" :lol )

God it's been so long since I've had a modern desktop :lol :lol

I do not get the people that think WoW is an ugly looking game. You are hard pressed to find a 5 year old game (let alone an MMO) that still looks that good today.

Playing through the PC version of Prince of Persia so I nabbed a few shots maxed at 1400X900.

I think the bigger problem is the terrible art style. Nothing about it is appealing to me, honestly.
 
I've been replaying Mass Effect recently, largely to check out how it plays with a female protagonist, since I've seen so many recommendations.

It's also been interesting because it has really highlighted how much I love and hate this game. The parts I like are some of my favorite game moments and mechanics in recent memory, and the things I dislike are some of my absolute least favorite.

What's interesting is that this applies to both gameplay as well as things like story and atmosphere and tone. There's a lot of hokey sci-fi stuff that I find lame, but also a lot of completely rad sci-fi that I love. So here are some screenshots of the stuff I like.

Wow, those are impressive. Is there somewhere that has a compilation of some good GTAIV mods / graphical mods?

So I've heard at least.. Done some searching on the topic, and it seems that you can't even force it in drivers.
