I would say probably either Metro 2033 or the Witcher 2 with Uber-sampling.

EDIT: Also, Isn't 2033 harder to run than Last Light?


I can max Metro 2033 with playable frame rates, so I wouldn't say it's the hardest.


The biggest problem with Metro 2033 is the terrible optimization on the depth of field. You can go from 100 FPS to 20 FPS in the blink of an eye on almost any machine running the Direct X 11 effects.


Haven't played the whole game, but I have played through a particular part early on that I've been told is one of, if not the, most difficult parts of the game graphically and maintained above 60 fps. I also run the benchmark above 60 fps avg.

Everquest II probably. I'm not sure it's possible to max it.

Overall, I would say Crysis 3..... but after playing Metro last Light - SSAA (Supersampling) murders my system harder than Crysis 3 could ever hope to. Even overclocked, waterblocked Titans in 2-way SLI can't handle 4x SSAA at 2560x1440.

Antialiasing used to be the system killer, but these days it's supersampling.

If by max you mean something like locked 120fps. I would say planetside 2, cpu bound.

Witcher 2 Uber sampling

I don't have Metro LL

Pointing out your stupidity is not trolling

GTA4 with icenhancer 1.25, Lord Neophytes texture pack and gta4 ultimate vehicle pack running at 2560x1440 resolution with everything on high gets me anywhere from 25 - 80fps on SLi 670s. Haven't been able to figure out how to get the game to run at a consistent frame rate.

I would, but I dont think itll go much more and still keep temps under 65c. I know it can handle a lot more, but I dont wanna stress my cpu out too much.
