Looks nice, but that's not the IP43 Pro, that's the plain IP43.

Re: ?? Embarrassing: *WHICH* GTS 8800 ??

EVGA, XFX or BFG, whichever gives you the best bang for you buck. I've have a BFG and I love it. I chose BFG because at the time they offered the best price and their warranty service is excellent too.

Re: new card for kids computer

Agree, it's an awesome card for the price. I wish I had a cool gaming PC when I was a kid, but then again my dad isn't computer savvy. :P

Can't wait to see some pics. :)

Re: ASUS Unveils AMD Radeon HD 3870X2 Graphics Card

agreed the water cooling blocks for these are nuts, like EK's 3870x2 blocks around like $160+, really awesome looking blocks and Im sure preform amazing but man what a cost, time to break the piggy bank Not only that, it's specific to that card only.

Re: ASUS Unveils AMD Radeon HD 3870X2 Graphics Card

The card looks and performs great. However, the fact that I would have to bend over backwards to watercool it is a HUGE (decisive) turn off for me. If I didn't water cool, then I would be all over it (if I could afford it). :mrgreen:

Re: Draw The Air Through The Radiator Or Push It Through

It seems most people say that pulling is better. From my experience, when I had a Swiftech 2x120 rad on the ceiling of my case, I tried both configurations and got the exact same temps. Now I have two heatercores, one at the back and one on top of my case. One is on pushing and the other on pulling ...

Re: (2) 8800GT in SLI or one 8800GTS (G92)?

I would get a single G92 GTS because not every game works well with SLI. Some you will have better performance, some about the same as a single GT and some worse. You'll also be obligated to always have an Nvidia chipset mobo as long as you have SLI. Plus a single GTS would be cheaper.

Re: quad or dual?!

Ive been told that the Quads are seen as a dual by the games anyway because it doesnt use all 4. So I would stick with Dual...besides it OC's better and usually is a better performance / price ratio. But Ive been out of the loop for 6 months... :? I really depends on the game. There are a few (very...

Have you tried Day of Defeat: Source? It's a blast.

Also, Lost Planet Extreme Condition is a short, but very fun ride.

Re: high 7 or low 8?

Oh, definitely a high 7 over low 8. Any game that will NEED DX10, and it's not playable with DX9 (with the exception of Halo 2), probably won't be even worth playing with low 8 cards.

I would say the viewsonic, although i don't know about that particular model. I have purchased and installed about 50 of these, and find them to be superior to anything else i have tried in the same price range (includes Sony and Samsung) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824116...

Re: opinions please!

did you happen to own that samsung? my only hesitation is the small base support... No, not that Samsung, sorry. I have heard of people that have it (in other forums, NOT newegg) and they say they love it. It's a good bang for the buck monitor. You shouldn't base your purchases on how many reviews ...
