    Is XFX ending their lifetime warranty?

    Mostly, I was just trying to brainstorm some reasonable limit. I personally only go single card, but I know there are or were many gamers who do SLI or Crossfire with up to 4 cards. And there's also the chance that someone just has bad luck. Which is why I also said the thing about looking at...

    Is XFX ending their lifetime warranty?

    As an addendum, you could also offer enterprise warranty options for heavy users who want to burn through tons of cards mining or whatever, at an increased cost / year that makes it sustainable for you as a business.

    Is XFX ending their lifetime warranty?

    Hi, I know I may be a little late to this thread, but I just want to chime in by saying that I think this is a poor solution to the problem. The lifetime warranty is a huge marketing tool. Before I bought XFX cards, I bought Visiontek on account of them also offering lifetime warranty. Then I...

    Wiring issues with new setup

    Hey, if you have something simple like an mp3 player to hook up to them, i would do that to test that everything got hooked up again right. If they get stereo that way, then they're either hooked up wrong or the soundcard isn't outputting right. If they don't, then the amp in the speakers is...

    Games that don't have Fisheye with Eyefinity?

    Well the fisheye is plain disgusting. I tried it and a canvas is FAR FAR preferable. I tried Dragon Age 2 again ("gold" certified game). It was fun for about an hour as long as I didn't try to move between the tactical and FPS view like I always did in DAO in single-monitor mode and kept the...

    Frustrated beyond belief with Eyefiinity

    He wasn't stating that as a question, he was stating it as a ... "captain obvious" fact. Nvidia's implementation is more limited because it physically can't work on a single card. ATI allows 3 monitors on one card through use of the display port so your statement asking why ATI didn't do it...

    Games that don't have Fisheye with Eyefinity?

    Put more succinct, basically what I'm saying is that everyone here defending fisheye is misinterpreting the point of multi-display gaming. Traditional gaming is based on the premise of flat, straight on canvas perspective, where you see something and you use the mouse or kb to rotate the screen...

    Games that don't have Fisheye with Eyefinity?

    Well here is what I'm saying. If you're in a car, vehicle, airplane, etc... when you look out a window or whatever, you're usually still looking straight ahead. So even though you're moving, you turn your head and you're still looking straight ahead. Presumably with an eyefinity display people...

    Games that don't have Fisheye with Eyefinity?

    Well I think a big part of the problem is that the human eye is not a camera. It doesn't fish eye with things on your peripheral vision. Don't believe me - take a pencil or pen, horizontal or vertical. Stare straight ahead and see if you notice and difference in size as you move it across - it...

    Eyefinity Problem

    I also just setup eyefinity on tri-monitors. It's awful and seems like no games really support it well. The ones that display ok don't take nice to handling the camera with it (moving/rotating). The others stretch everything out and just make it look like crap. You get marginal extra...

    Games that don't have Fisheye with Eyefinity?

    Ok, I've been gone from hardforums for a while but I came back because I was trying to set up an eyefinity display and everything is IMO crappy. I consider all this FOV talk silly. This is all digital. They should just be able to make a 3-camera array and tell the game to automatically set the...

    Laptop overheating/Locking Up

    Poser is a beast when it comes to what it's processing needs are. Not very optimized for animation. Does it actually crash or does it just lock? Often for rendering a machine will get unresponsive and you just have to let it run until it finishes. Another option is to split the animation into...

    HP TouchSmart tm2t or other tablet?

    ...or one designed with a detachable keyboard like some of them are starting to. Why are insistent that having an irremovable keyboard is ideal over something that's focused on being a slate?

    That's what they make keyboard docks and BT keyboards for
