Thanks for the review.
Would have been interesting to see what happened
when you turned on Physx.
Finally made Metro playable at 19x10, that's about it; the rest, way overkill.
ga-z77-dh3 (great & cheap O/C'er from Gigabyte)
i2600k/16 gigs Kingson 1600 (OC'ed to 4.5Ghz)
CoolerMaster Hyper 212 + (lapped, smok'in deal, 38C idle, 65C loaded)
MSI GTX 660ti Power Edition
Antec 900 case (quiet)
