Well, im not really interested in opinions. Looking for some bencharks. Thanks though. I was looking for 1920x1200 all settings max. Hard to believe only 1% to 2% difference when gtaiv considering 50 percent draw distance is the 1 gig mark. Thats why I would like to see some "benchmarks".
I seen a few benchmarks, but none tested at high res, or max settings, on games that actually use them. I think it would make a difference. But, I would like some real benchmarks cuz I am planning on buying one.
Okay .. It's still an opinion. But my Zotac GTX 280 1GB isn't quite enough to max out GTA 4.. If your like me you are a GTA 4 phreak. With other games like COD W@W and others like that the 2GB would be overkill. With GTA 4 it is a different story. The GTX 280 isn't quite enough. You can max out the shadows but not max out the water. Or max out everything and drop to 800x600. I have an I7 920 GTA 4 (percentage use 30) 6GB Gskill DDR 3 Tripple channel ( GTA 4 usage 40 percent) Video GTX 280 1GB Zotac AMP (GTA 4 usage 99percent) I have no bottleneck on any game except GTA 4.. So , If your like me and love GTA 4 and want to max it out fully.. 2GB of video is a must. I'm going to invest in either the GTX 285 2GB EVGA FTW or if the new GTX 300 * or next series Geforce card to have 2gb of ram.. And yeah .. That's just for GTA 4.. Awesome game.. Totally worth the retail price and upgrade from AMD 6000 and 8800 GTS 640MB.. which ran Gta 4 on medium settings at 1024x768.
