Re: DX10.1

I remember now what it was withthe X850 it was the shader model 3.0 support that is was lacking. There was a lot of talk about this when it first came to be. Funny it was for this game that my kids had to have Spiderman3 and once I upgraded everyone to be able to play it, they did not like the game....

DX10.1

I have been seeing a lot of hype lately about the "new" dx10.1 Anyone know if this is an issue when looking to purchase new Video equiptment? I ran an X850 ATI forever and loved the card but the new games that are out needed a card that would support dx9c and unfortunatly it did not. I have setup a ...

Re: 2900XT vs 3850

I had no idea that the 8800's were so much faster than the ATi's!! The 8600 SLI set up ran min 5.67 max11.93 and avg 10.39 with the Crysis benchmark, this is in a machine with an AMD 6000+ X2 with 4gb of 800mhz ram. I ran the 2900Pro that I have at the same settings and got Min 11.65 Max 38.73 adn A...

2900XT vs 3850

I am looking into up-grading from my current to set ups, one an SLI 8600GTS and another HD2900PRO. I have found that the single ATI beats the snot out of the SLI set up and am wondering if I would be better with a 2900XT either the 1GB or the 512mb vs the newer 3800 series? I am running an SLI board...

Re: Bioshock Won't Launch

I do have Alcohol120 installed, it has never caused a problem before but I suppose there is a first time for everything... I will try uninstalling it and see if it makes any difference. There was a game in the past that I had trouble with on my sons machine (the 4200) it was the Gravis conyroller th...
