    Battlefield 3 - Official Thread

    IMO you should not upgrade for some game that is not out yet if you were satisfied with your previous system. By the time the game is out you probably would get a GPU that is faster than GTX580 for the same amount of money.

    Official Crysis 2 Thread

    The way I did it with the hardest difficulty level is to use the mounted gun. You can remove the mounted gun and use like the other gun. There will be around 20 guys coming at you before it stops.

    why video game graphics have so low quality?

    This is what they used to render Avatar. This is why we are not getting the prerendered quality on our 3D games yet. Even the mightiest ATI and Nvidia cards will not hold a candle against these monsters. It is not stated how long did they need to render for each frame. I don't know when will...

    Any advantage using my X-Fi Titanium over 6950 HDMI

    I just bought a ATI 6950. It is my first graphics card to come with HDMI connection. Before I was using my X-Fi with optical spdif passthru. So that means I am passing the DAC on the X-Fi right? So if I am using the HDMI connection for audio, theoretically it should sound the same as before...

    Max safe everyday volt for GTX580

    What is the safe volt that you can give to GTX580 for everday use? The EVGA superclock comes with 1.081v so that should be a safe everyday volt right otherwise EVGA wouldn't ship them out. I also read from XS that the range of volt adjustable in MSI Afterburner is dependent on each card, so...

    I believe that is program dependent. The program has to be coded to prevent the sleep mode kicking in while its running. Maybe you can check the settings if there is an option preventing sleep mode there.
