as many of you know, a lot of the review sites use crap gaming benchmarks. Too many use old games (TF2, HL2, FEAR), synthetics programs (in case you enter cards in high score contests :sarcastic:  ) or just run the games AMD/Nvidia tell them too. Some will pick 2-3 AMD and 2-3 Nvidia just to be fair to both.... :sarcastic: . Unfortunately gaming is not like that, certain games are just played by more people then other games. For example, no one builds a new PC for Pirates of the Burning Sea but our forums are littered with help for WoW, SC2, Crysis builds. So we should create our own list and yes the more popular games will rule because...more people play them and want to see how new cards handle them.

I suggest the following format; we each suggest two games from each category. I'll then make a poll so we can vote and narrow it down to one selection in each category. FPS, RTS, MMO, single player RPG/action, racing/flight sim, and finally sports/Misc. So here is my list and my one and only rule...NO CRYSIS OR CRYSIS WARHEAD...ENOUGH!

Battlefield Bad Company 2
Crysis 2 (different engine :p  )

Star Craft 2

World of Warcraft

RPG/ Action
Dragon Age II
Mass Effect II

Racing / Flight
Need For Speed Shift 2
F1 2010

Sports / Misc
Football Manager 2011
Blood Bowl

think you should give rift a shot in the mmo slot. considering everyone is starting to play it. (over 1 million players already..)

I vote for Shogun2(RTS) and AVP(FPS), both have great graphics.
