Re: Grahics card running hot

Thanks guys. I'll try all those steps. But like i said, despite an uninstall -> fresh install, CCC isn't opening, so I can't diagnose or configure anything. I've also ruled out a virus because the computer is for gaming and commercial software only and (except for registration), is disconnected from...

Grahics card running hot

I have dual Sapphire 5770 Vapor-X running in Crossfire and recently I found them running HOT, even in idle: even if I just leave my computer on the desktop, after about half an hour the top of my computer (My PC sits flat on it's side) becomes really hot to the touch. the heat source is above the PC...

Re: The cake is a lie

Awesome. That's the coolest birthday cake idea ever. Who needs Disney when you could have an Aperture Science Enrichment Center. I wish I had a childhood filled with perilous, mind bending gauntlets, and sadistic programs with false promises of cake. But no, I had to make do with Alice In Wonderland...

Re: PC vs console question

I am saying that nobody in their right mind should spend the kind of money they want for a high end video card just to play a game on a computer anymore. Quality is great but when it comes down to buying 1 component for a pc that costs more than an entire console setup, the console wins Personally,...

Re: PC vs console question

Tell Nvidia to take it's high end $600+ card and sell it for $100 and watch how many they sell and how quickly gaming would pick up on pc's I would argue that If consumers demanded quality in gaming, they would buy into computers, and this would accelerate development in card generations, depreciat...

PC vs console question

Would we have more advanced games and computer graphics, and with it more powerful hardware today if PC dominated the market?

Or, put another way – has the console-dominated gaming market held back graphics and gaming development?

Re: Where do I update my bios?

Hmmm... bricking... Yes, I see - yes, I'm receiving an accurate picture. I probably should be experimenting in this area for my own benefit, but until I can afford a new motherboard, I should probably hold off. If the games run fine then I shouldn't have reason to complain. But flashing the BIOS is ...

Re: Where do I update my bios?

I'm not having problems, but I probably should have mentioned that I want to update my PC in terms of gaming. My computer presently spots dual Vapor-X 5770s, and I would like to replace them with newer models. However, even without an update in hardware, it's apparently still a good idea to update t...

Re: B/marking processor frame rates

I read somewhere that AMD will have to come out with a new APU everytime a new GPU comes out...if nvidia wants in on the fun they would have to give up their technology to either AMD or Intel Radeon will have Nvidia by the balls , was my initial thought. Should be interesting to see how Nvidia play...

Re: B/marking processor frame rates

As far as compatibility: An AMD CPU will gel with Nvidia, however being AMD’s love child, the APU will be built with Radeon architecture. So how well, if at all, will the APU communicate with Nvidia cards? Although I've no doubt that Intel is working on their own APU. “ The E2 series APUs aren’t com...

Re: B/marking processor frame rates

Nice - I'm psyched! I look forward to a benchmark WITH video cards. What does this mean for card compatibility, though? And perhaps the APU bump will give Nvidia's muscle a run for it's money :-k ?

B/marking processor frame rates

I've just finished reading the review on the AMD A8-3850. Observing the frame rates under in-game testing; the results were impressively high given the absence of video card. Of course, the A8-3850 is an APU, so what are the GPU components driving these benchmark scores? And with processors of this ...

Re: Diamond, Sapphire & XFX AMD Radeon HD 6870 Video Card Re

For my overall benefit towards the understanding of graphics cards and the benchmarks performed; how does a single Asus GF 470 do markedly better than dual Rad 6870's in Metro 2033, at least at reduced resolution, however gets flogged at both resolutions in AVP? I commonly see these kinds of results...

Of course; console reads from disc. PSX was a long time ago for me, indeed. I just hope PC gaming continues to be viable and maintains the edge when it come to quality gaming.

Console RAGE

RAGE is due for release next year. As I understand, RAGE requires 1tb of HDD space, and even the latest Xbox has only a quarter of that capacity; it seems a major brick wall in console gaming is it's lack of capacity for consumers to upgrade in hardware. So what will this generation of game mean for...
