@gamerxxx89 "confusing controls + late pc release = i dnt like assn crd" ============================================== I felt exactly like that though now I am just about a quarter done with Brotherhood, and honestly, I love the series now! The controls are not typical, but they are only hard at first. As for the late PC relase, don't let that put you off - it's better late than never, afterall, so just enjoy it. Give it a try again and just play for a little longer. By the way, AC2 is good to start with, I found 1 to be so so so repetitious (though it was fun).

You pose a good question! Well, I would not worry if I were you. If you decide to get the new monitor, your FPS might (and only might) drop by a few FPS and only at some parts of the game. The GTX460 might not be the king of nvidia's lineup, but it's one of the most shining crown jewel, so have faith in it! :-)

Wow - the hiding the body system is so sub-par it actually made me show it to my friend in disbelief! This is a high-budget game? A floating arm? There was no weight to that body, just a simple primitive basic ragdoll "animation" and that's it. Why not look at how this was done in Splinter Cell and just use that same sort of approach. Anyways, hope they fix that.

I must have missed this game when it was released 6 years ago - oh wait... oops! Every single scene in this demo has glitches, which speaks volumes about the actual game. The best is at 00:27...notice how the grass draws itself.... anyways, will be passing this one up without a question.

I have to be honest, this is only screwing over those players who actually paid for the game because guaranteed this will be cracked in a week after release. You can play and save steam games which supposedly only run while logged into steam.

@Shiftfallout, sorry to say but you sound like one of those people who think they know it all and that your opinion is the absolute final word on it all. This card is not needed nor really desired by everybody. Of course, it was $200 then it would present an entirely different value. Multiple monitors aren't needed nor desired by gamers. You're also wrong about this mass migration from nVidia over to ATI. The fact is that nVidia still sells good stuff and they do have a consumer base. If you're really part of the "in crowd" (which you sure make yourself sound) then perhaps you wouldn't have so much flawed and subjective points to present. I respect your effort, but just remind yourself that you're just one of many, many who have just as valid of an opinion as your own.

@ JimmyJumpy It's really fair to say that this ATI card is indeed overkill! I don't see how this is evolutionary at all. 2 GPUs on one card (not new), multiple screens (not new), price (expensive), dimensions (huge) - there's nothing evolutionary about this card, though it is a really really nice piece of technology. The fact is that this card is a simple piece of luxury at the moment, and it isn't at all needed. The point I was making was that nVidia is behind, that ATI has good drivers, and that this card is way over the top for today's market. And that eyefinity is one of those things corporations vomit on the public from time to time to give it one extra bullet point on their packaging to brag about. How many people even have desktop space to accomodate 3 lcd panels? How many even like the concept? And the most important question - how many have wallets that deep? ATI is a great company, and I can only appreciate what they do for pushing the envelope - but don't label another graphics card "evolutionary". @MagicTestacle The GTX275 is a fantastic card - but like JimmyJumpy said, don't waste your cash on it. For that money you can buy cards which surpass it (both nVidia and ATI), and if I were you I would just wait for the 300 series release (which will also bring down the prices on ATI cards, so you'll have even more options). I know the waiting is a killer, but it will so worth it!

No, ATI drivers don't suck anymore, they haven't for quite some time. Yes, this card is over-kill, for any game out there. And true, Eyefinity is a marketing nonsense which will never catch on unless ATI is ready to give away a very good discount coupon for 3 24" good quality LCD panels. My GTX275 plays any game currently out, on my 24" monitor (1920x1200) without the slightest frame rate issues. DX11 games will not be worth the cash for some time - even if the game is DX11. Yes, nVidia should be thoroughly ashamed for lagging so far behind in putting out something new and fresh. BIG MISTAKE!

Yes, they are absolutely fine for a mid-range system - though "mid-range" is a very relative term - what CPU and GPU will you be using with this? Another issue to consider is to make sure it's in good condition. You don't want to be using a defective PSU, it can, at best, not work well, at worst cause a fire...
