My god but it is beautiful, and the sound with the surround on the floating floor we built, we could just sit there all day watching it.

Ummm... 7-series cards aren't even out yet; so it's likely that you mean to have a "6" in that model number? And the rez, well, you were kinda close; it'd either be 7680x1440 or 7680x1600.

I play Battlefield Bad Company 2 quite a bit; I have a decent rig set up, as I'm editor in chief of one of the oldest PC gaming hardware websites/communities... I've gotten the chance to review quite a bit of product pre-release over the years.

... These sorts of activities are cutting into time I'd rather spend working on album concepts, writing songs, promoting my band etc so there's a good possibility I may retire from gaming for good.

Rig specs:

  • Phenom II x6 1055t @ 3.96ghz
  • Kingwin XT-1264 cooler with extra 120mm fan
  • Asus M4N98TD EVO nforce 980a SLI motherboard
  • 2x2gb A-DATA DDR3-1600
  • Present GPU: NVIDIA reference GTX 570; I used to have another one (SLI) but I recently sold it
  • Mushkin 60gb Sandforce SSD
  • 2x250gb WD2500KS RAID 0
  • Sunbeam Tuniq 3 case
  • Antec Earthwatts EA650 PSU
  • DVD drive (I'd like to have a Blu-Ray drive though)
  • Samsung B2430 24" 1080p LCD
  • Sanyo 27" 720p TV (secondary/couch display)
  • Kingwin slim keyboard
  • MS Sidewinder X5 mouse
  • Logitech Revolution/MX5500 (bluetooth couch keyboard/mouse)
  • Win 7 Ultimate
I dig Left 4 Dead 2 as well (and also Lost Planet 2, Meto 2033, Gears of War PC, Halo 2 PC, Mirror's Edge, HAWX 2 & others), but BC2 has had me under its thumb since the beta.
