Default Why only widescreen?!?!?!?!?!?!

God Damn it! Is it so much to ask for a review of a game running at a 1280x1024 resolution?

Only websites that don't know what they are doing will review video cards on such low resolution. Let me explain. High-end video cards usually present the same performance on lower resolutions (which means anything below 1600x1200 for high-end models). High-end video cards only present significant performance difference on higher resolutions. Thus it is pointless reviewing high-end video cards on resolutions below 1600x1200.

So we decided to run at 1680x1050 and up on high-end video cards. We will only run 1280x1024 on mid-range and low-end cards.

Default 9800 GT is the same as 8800

Thank you for that. You saved me a 100 or so with that review. And I only came across it by chance. A splendid, technically expert review written, IMHO, with a deal of spleen at this passing off of a renaming as an upgrade to fool the untechnical.

Techie I was once, but how do you keep up?

A forum on the ipisoft site www.shoot3D.biz made me realise my graphics card might not be up to the job, a reviewer of the GeForce9800GT on www.ebuyer.com pointed to your site's review of the card, et voila!

Once again, many thanks.
