Re: New LR folder coming this week :-D

well, I would be folding IF I could figure out why 2 different video cards have the same error.
They both say core error.

Re: How much longer do you think the socket 775 will stay around

So do they plan on making the i7s now and dropping them for the i5?

Re: GTX 260 black edition by XFX vs ASUS 4870

I'll post the screenies and results tonight, I am on my way to the beach, simply put, the 4870 seems to do better in less shader intensive games, and when the shaders get heavy the Nvidia dominates it. Example, crysis GPU flyby, ati wins, But, CPU test where you get the explosions, Nvidia runs away ...

Re: extremely weird benchmark results....advice needed

Well, my benchmarks were done on smartfps, using fraps to compare.
First was done on the notorious crysis, and crysis warhead.
Then I noticed it again on UT3, then again on oblivion with Qarl's texture pack 3. After that I decided to post this and find out what's up.

Re: Pleas need hand hear thks in Advice

I'm a cryptologist. He said, his ATi Radeon 3450 was acknowledge as a 3450 in Vista and a 3600 series in XP. Then he said that it's only showing up as onboard video, he needs drivers.
So to the OP follow the link that Apoptosis sent you to and download the new drivers and you will be good to go.

extremely weird benchmark results....advice needed

Ok, I'm doing some benchmarks on my ATI 4870 before I get my GTX 260. And comparing. But, on EVERY game, SOMEHOW SOMEWAY my benchmarks at 8xAA are higher than my 4xAA on the ATI. I mean like 2xAA = 8xAA+1% type results. Has anyone ever heard of this. My CCC panel is set to application preferences, I...

Re: 2009 E3 Expo - Opening Day Coverage

it was right before he loaded that new demo game that uses the keyboard illumination. I would think it's just the camera view. Because I've only seen 2 high end alienware computers and the screens were really clean and clear like Clearasil.

Re: 2009 E3 Expo - Opening Day Coverage

is it just me or did that alienware have a bit of bleeding in the screen? If you are paying as much as it costs for alienware, ESPECIALLY their high end SLI gtx 280 set up. I'd expect the screen to have 0 bleeding and dead pixels.

GTX 260 black edition by XFX vs ASUS 4870

Benchmarks will be posted soon, but, my actual QUESTION is why is it that when you look at review after review. Is it either Nvidia killing the 4870 and 4890 then you look at other trusted sites and it's the opposite, comparing the GTX core 216 to the lower model 4850. I'm extremely confused. Isn't ...

Re: Asus M3N78 PRO Barebone Kit on Tiger

I'm using XP Pro x64 and every driver I need is available to me. If you use XP and have 4GB of RAM and a 512MB video card you will only be able to use 3584MB of memory. XP and Vista 32-bit editions can only use a combined 4GB of memory (that includes your video card). Yes it uses your video card RA...

New LR folder coming this week :-D

I got my XFX black edition GTX 260 coming in the mail on Thursday and I was going to get a jump on it with my 4870... Nope core error. I've got the software downloaded and was curious if the FAHMON was any good or how to use it.

Re: Asus M3N78 PRO Barebone Kit on Tiger

That's right you can't actually use it all. :-\. Good news is oblivion with QTP3 ULTRA res pack, and about 10 other mods is the most ram I use at once. Oblivion with all mods at 1680x1050 with 16xAA (forced in drivers) 16x AF, ATI Advanced AA, mipmap high, and advanced AF. While listening to music o...

Re: Coming Soon from NVIDIA.....

I really really hope it's not blue red 3d. And its the one you can bearely tell it's 3d. Until you put on the glasses. lol. I think it would be and they just used that to get the point across. This makes me feel better about buying a XFX black edition GTX 260 now.

I don't know why, but when I read your post skipp. I was thinking of my hard drive sitting on my desk. It's a 1GB And at the time it was one of the biggest ones. And I was thinking about 1TB today. And since 15 years ago our biggest hard drive wasn't enough to run a common game. How would it be in a...

Re: 4870 fps colapses

Even with a QX9650 your only going to see between 70-100 FPS at high quality and ultra high quality. Major_A was correct. If someone is getting FPS twice that you can be guaranteed he/she is running at half the resolution/IQ that you are. Take a look here . I'd say you are doing fine. If you are ge...

I guess nothing beats actual game benchmarks huh. I got my score up to 16k so it's better I was just thrown off that the score was so low compared to the other pcs in the type.
