1) Are those gold/shiny leaves (or bird like debris) normal? What the heck are they supposed to be? ...or is that a glitch I'm getting? Bizarre, can't quite get the point of what they could be. They seem to fly around like leaves or debris in the wind....othertimes they look like birds taking off. 2) Is there any point to the 9600 in this game whatsoever? I usually run it for games w/ decent graphics just for the heck of it....but one day I forgot and ran CoD4 w/ the 9400 and didn't really notice any difference at all. It ran fine and the graphics were just as good (as far as I could tell w/o doing an A-B). I have no idea what the frame rate difference was.
