    I disagree.

    Benchmarking programs are for comparing results at a given point. The points are only comparable when your settings are the same, as well. What this does, is help us compare the general strength of each graphics card.

    No one said (other than the OP) to run it max. We're just showing him what our cards can do at max. I personally would usually run it at an open&run setting, such as what TimeToLiveCustoms does when they run it, and same as Anandtech. Though they may each run slightly tweaked settings, TTL has always just said "I open and run it, don't mess with the settings." This makes all results comparable for the purpose of benchmarking and knowing just how much stronger/weaker a given card is.

    This system is 2 x GTX680 @ 5760x1080. Generally okay for most games. Totally inadequate for others (looking forward to an upgrade). Had it roughly a year now, it's done well, been heavily used with no regrets

    What can I say... Graphics and gaming are my only hobby in life.. I don't spend money on anything else... Yea really.. my car is 17 years old

    I feel my 7950 OP did pretty well. I turn up the settings as high as they can go in any game that allows it, which is why I set my heaven like that.

    i only have 2 cards, SLI has a limit of 4 GPUs, and each 690 contains 2 GPUs, so dual 690s = quad SLI

    Was going to say - Windows NT?!
    But I realised that 6.2 is Windows 8.

    Duh! Sorry. I was thinking 4 690's would be insane overkill and forgot that a 690 is dual gpu. But my point still stands, your's gpu's cost more than my rig does. lol

    I still like my 7950's 52.8 in heaven, I re ran it and it went up a bit.

    I can't get it to run above like 600 or so at 1080p. So 1200p it is. My SLI hates benchmarking programs.
