Ordered dirt 3 from newegg on Thursday. Chose 3 day guaranteed ups and it arrived Friday. Gotta love the multiple warehouse shipping with the egg. Immediately flipped the switch and it was unlocked. I'm at email@example.com stable. Go dirt 3.
Gaming at 1080p Settings all high, Both AA off, AO off
Game was running great on metro but jumping into caspian was showing the true age of my card. With Fps around 50s with dips in the 30s and spikes to 60s.
Is it worth upgrading to a 6970 or 570?
I just installed my new PowerColor 5850 pcs+ with the 10.4s
I uninstalled my nvidia drivers, rebooted into safemode used driver sweeper.. uninstalled the 8800gtx, etc...that all went fine.. mw2 runs fine, 3dmark2006 is fine
but in bfbc2 the game runs smooth as butter all max, hbao on...
I have no reason to spread false information here.. I have to force vsync in the Nvidia control panel for bfbc2... bottom line.. why would i lie lol
and fyi, i plan on getting a 5850 this week and this thread sparked my interest because my monitor NEEDS vsync...
as already posted in this thread but its all about cpu..
i went from a firstname.lastname@example.org to a email@example.com
I have a 8800gtx
I went from 35-60 fps with mostly low or medium settings
to 50-75 fps with all max besides shadows, 2x AA..
with the same old 8800gtx..
now once I get my 5850 im sure ill...
please let us know how bc2 fairs with your new rig. I just upgraded from a e6600 to a q9550 with a 8800gtx and play bc2.. the difference is pretty damn good from the old cpu. the 8800gtx is still a bottleneck tho as i still cant run any AA or shadows
Well i had my firstname.lastname@example.org and it has been running fine for the past month.
Last night bfbc2 hung while i was shutting down so i had to ctrl alt del to kill it, that worked fine.. i then tried rebooting. The pc came down fine but on reboot it would not post. Lights come on and fans spin but...
I am planning on buying some new components (mobo/cpu/memory) and was wondering how MIcrocenters in-store selection and prices compare to major sites like Newegg,etc?
Im looking to possibly get an i7 and didnt want to make a 1 hr trip to the store without knowing what im getting into.. thanks...
Ive been out of the PC video card business for about 3 years.. my last purchase and current card is a evga 8800gtx.
Now that Im playing BF BC2 id like to upgrade.
What would be the absolute best card i can get for 200 or less (ati 5770??) im so lost these days with all the models...
same issue here 8800 GTX 625/1000
1680x1050 everything maxed 4xAA
If i disable the "soften smoke eges" then i dont get slow down, but if i enable that setting my system gets whored anytime there is smoke
When I play the game, after about 20 minutes my screen will freeze and I need to reboot.
Ive pinpointed it to rivatuner. If i turn off rivatuner it never happens. Even if i have rivatuner running but no overclock it happens?
Anyone else experience this?
