Perhaps I'll not benchmark with DAII then. I had expected it to be a lot better.
Its best to not use a game which has been developed to cater the console crowd! Which is most of the games now adays!

That's the problem. MOST games are just that... console-ports. Some just happen to do a better job at porting over to the PC better than others, like Bulletstorm or Dirt 2.

I hear people saying Crysis 2 is a crappy console port, but I find it really fun. It's like Call of Duty, with better graphics and a nanosuit. hahaha

Well like I said, some console ports are "alright", like Bulletstorm. It words certain things a bit oddly that make it sound like a port, but cranked up, the graphics are gorgeous and it runs great.
