The best/fastest computer i've built was with the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme. Mated with the i7 3960x, it was a monster of a build. I just love how ASUS pay attention to such detail with just the retail box alone and the content. Everytime i look at the motherboard, it screams quality.
Been through soo many cards but the BEST ones that I use the longest are:
Voodoo 2 8meg(Creative 3D Blaster)
Geforce 2 MX400(forgot which brand but this card had the best price/performance during its time)
ATi Radeon 9700 Pro(BF1942 + AA = no sleep for days on end)
8800GTX(The only card during...
iPhone 5S and HTC One owner here; I switch between each depending on what i do for the day. If I want simplicity/basic then its the 5S; if I want my widgets and customization, then its the One. They both have their ups and downs.
Here's my take:
nVidia > AMD
They have their fair share of issues but I have more problems with AMD drivers than nVidia drivers when it comes to Multi GPU setups. Driver stability are the same when it comes to single card setups.
I've sold all my pc's and just living off my wife's 2009 Dell Latitude laptop for all the work needed. Its been 6 months and for sure don't felt no regret doing it. Before, I wouldn't last a couple of months without buying parts to upgrade my pc's but now its pointless when all other...
I've been with Sprint since the EVO 4G was announce @ google i/o. Just left them last month for pre-paid :) Too many broken promises with Sprint. Their Data speed is worse than dialup, VERY SPOTTY 4G. Very happy with my Nexus 4 on T-mobile's monthly 4G 30/month plan ;). I avg 5-10Mbps down...
Owned both, kept the 680 at the end. Its less of a problem for the games i play. The 7970 is a good card also but with the 680, I don't have to worry much about the next driver destroying my game time + its cooler/quieter ;)
Pretty good price.... If only that plan was still in existence.... but for now I pay $110/month unlimited everything on Sprint for 2 smartphones, 1700 minutes. Sprint is great but their data speed blows.... hoping their 4G LTE will help me stick around.... If not, I would HATE to pay BIG RED my...
I Hate You!
My Desktop use to be the same as that when I had my Creative Voodoo2's in SLI!
That wallpaper never got old :cool:
PS. Did you click that little display with the 3dfx logo yet? I remember clicking it everytime I get into the display properties :(
Buy a quality power supply; I don't think the 560ti is causing the force shutdowns
Here is [H]'s review of the 700w Unit(complete fail):
I don't have the 100hz problem but I do have to agree with you on the monitor pissing you off; This is the most problematic monitor I have to date(lost of signal, backlight issues). I'm definitely looking to purchase a new monitor in the near future to replace this one.
eVGA GTX680 + S27A750D w/301.24 Beta Drivers here, no problems of 100hz that i know about; I always check the display information to make sure its running at 120hz. I can check more tonight when I get off work.
If you have good eyes, 120hz does make a difference when you have a good spec computer. I was on a U3011 with 7970x2's and thought that was it... until i bought the 750D. The smoothness is SOO much better! really! i can tell the difference the moment I fired up one of my games. Sure the U3011...
ATi builds great cards but their drivers took a big dump after the 9700 Pro. While I have my fair share of driver problems on both side, nVIDIA is definitely more stable when it comes to their drivers IMO.
I always tell myself to wait it out for something better..... but ever since the 8800GTX, i've been upgrading to whatever's best :rolleyes:
Definitely will upgrade to GK110 or whatever's best after playing with this GTX680 :p
