Great idea as video cards are the most frequent item upgraded in the typical users computer.

Just a reminder, spamming will not be tolerated.

I refer you to the bolded of rule number one
1. Do not SPAM our forums. SPAM is cause for immediate and permamnent banishment from Legit Reviews. Forms of SPAMMING include linking irrelevant information (porn, pharmacueticals, or anything not related to the site), or pointless posts. Although you may be given a warning, it is completely up to the staff to decide whether you are warned or immediately banned.
Posts will be deleted on site, with no warning. If it gets bad enough, a warning will be issued. Please post something that is relevent. Saying 'good job" or something dumb like that, that is an obvious post pad, will not be tolerated.

Okay back to your regularly scheduled thread

This is good - but get it right, it's a lottery not a contest.

At some later date perhaps a contest could be arranged - the post voted the best for the month, perhaps, just generally or perhaps constrained to some subject.

That could get real messy. But feel free to write up something, and if us staff deem it sticky material it will get stuck. Even feel free to PM us, and say hey I think my thread is sticky material. the more the good the material the better.

All, try not to dig up old posts (i.e. >2 mos) for posting unless you have something of value to contribute to it. Part of the reason for the contest is to generate new posts and discussions. Now get busy! :)

How much faster

Post by Recontaz » Thu Jan 04, 2007 12:10 am

Wondering how much faster would this card be verses my Radeon XL800 card I have. Since its a 1600 does that mean double the speed.
