Similar results for Crysis. For the rest of the games, some wins, some losses. See link below.

'Sonic' is a name used by Xpertvision to indicate an overclocked version of the graphics card, such like ASUS will use 'TOP' for their overclocked version, XFX uses 'XXX', etc.

think its like a little overkill for me. i seldom play games just for watching video and surfing all that stuff.

is this good enough? Gainward Bliss 8600GT 256MB DDR3 HDMI SilentFX

btw, im using xv 7900gs sonic now
