I'd recommend running the timedemo benchmarking routines for a better performance comparison. I finally managed to get SLI working on the demo with my 7950 GX2 (Opty 165 @ 2.4) and was averaging 31 fps at 1680x1050 with mostly medium settings and about 27 fps with most of the settings at high. I think that's fairly reasonable to play through the game and, as I usually do with these graphics heavy games, will probably play it again sometime down the road with an upgraded system to see what I missed.
PS - My son (who, granted, isn't as anal about graphics) played through the demo on his AMD64 3K + 6800GT machine at 1280x1024 on mostly medium settings. So some of the hysteria related to the system requirements to play the game has been amusing. Having some graphical headroom built into a graphics engine for improved hardware can be a good thing.
