Why everybody is testing the graphic cards with the most expensive CPU, remains a BIG mystery for me!! Just check the latest STEAM surveys, that more than 70% still run dual-cores, and cheap quad-cores. So what's the purpose for top line procs???? To show off??? Don't tell me is because CPU bottleneck, because that's a BIG B.S.!!!
Personaly I am more interested to see how those video cards react on normal processors, like an E8500, Q6600, or AMD's equivalents. There you can see perfectly if is worth buying an ultra expensive video-card or not.
Every-time I see the numbers from the tests, I have to think, "Well if this card can output 250fps on an I7 ultra-super-extreme, how many FPS will it output on a E8500 o.c. ????" For once, I would really REALLY wish to see how those cards do on real-life situations with normal components, not on the most expensive ones!
