Good morning all.
I'm looking to finish out a system that I have 1/2 built for VR. I currently own a Samsung Odyssey WMR system.
I was curious if the finished build would hold up to something like Skyrim VR. Here's what I have:
MSI Gaming 7 1150
16 GB DDR3 2000mhz
Here's what I'm thinking...
Will this memory work with my older Asus Rampage III Formula?
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9S-8GXM...
Wanted title to be as obvious as possible.
Here's my current system:
CPU - Intel i7 920 2.8 OCed to 4.2 on air
MOBO - Asus Rampage III Extreme
Memory - 8 GB DDR3 1600mhz
GPUs - Galaxy Windforce GTX 670 SLI
PSU - 850w Corsair
HDD - 256GB Sata III SSD
- 3GB Seagate Sata III...
Personal experience here.
I bought 2 Gigabyte 670s and play at both 1920x and 5760x.
At 1920x I can play (almost) everything maxed out.Been playing a lot of Arma 2 and the game goes between 35 FPS and 100 FPS. Game is rough on any system, but looks great. (Also have i7 930 running at...
I started playing Rift for the first time this past week. (Rift Lite) I need to check the settings, but at 1920x1080 I haven't noticed a slow down. I'll fire up Fraps tonight to check FPS. I'll let you know when I get home. Could be driver improvements and differences as well.
I unloaded my 2 6950s thinking that I would pick up a 7970. That hasn't happened yet. I've been surviving on a GTX 460 1GB for the past week or two and it has been managable. I could be evil and pull the other one out of my wife's computer, but I don't think it would be worth the hassle...
SWTOR info - MSI Afterburner shows 0% usage of 2nd card in my 6790 Xfire setup. Don't expect improved framerates over one card. Hopefully they will patch the support in. Hopefully they will patch a LOT of things in.
Count me as someone who experiences tearing. =(
I have 2x 6950s flashed to 6970s and have very noticeable tearing that moves slowly from top to bottom of screen. This happens when I am in both Fullscreen or Windowed mode in BFBC2 and WOW.
I have enabled V-Sync and Triple buffering, but it...
I'll get definitive numbers tonight to make sure. FRAPS the way to go for framerates?
I play BFBC2 and WoW at the moment. I do have Just Cause 2 and Metro 2033 installed and can attempt to pull numbers from that as well if you all want.
Thanks for the information all. I may try portrait...
When you're playing on 3x 30 monitors Portrait, what resolution are you running?
I'm currently running 2x 6950's (unlocked) at 5760x1080 landscape on 27" monitors and it doesn't seem like I can turn on all the bells and whistles on games like WOW or BFBC2 etc. Does portrait provide a lower...
What 3rd party drivers? I have a 3D TV (Samsung 58" Plasma) and was planning on trying a bit of 3d gaming with my 460 SLI setup before upgrading to 6950s. What do I need to do to make that happen? :)
Any info would be awesome.
If you HAVE the option to separate them, do it. Perhaps something like http://cgi.ebay.com/Brand-New-ATI-CrossFire-Long-Bridge-Connecctor-100-mm-/280560538563?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item4152b613c3#ht_1295wt_905 ?
Here's what I have experienced so far with my CF setup:
i7 @ 4.2 on air
ASUS PX58D-E (BTW, due to connectors and case I am NOT able to use bottom PCI-E slot for CF!!!!! :( )
2x 6950 flashed 6970
Due to MOBO and Case layout, I have to place the cards right next...
I may have missed you answering this, but have you tried one card at a time to see if it is the DP on just the top card? Sorry to hear about all the trouble you are having. I am having some issues of my own, but I think it is all videocard stability related. Having one of my 6950's...
I often run the BF exe instead of the version checker. Took me a bit of time to realize that I needed to do that.
I ordered 2 AMD 6950s Monday afternoon. Crossing my fingers that everything flashes properly.
Man that sucks!
I am still within my first year since purchase so I'm gonna call Westinghouse and see what they can do for me. I LOVE the monitor, but if that is the case, I'd hate to think it was a manufacturing flaw. Looks like it is. Thanks again for your input. I am really lucky to have...
I'll hook my original Xbox up component. (Think I still have to cable.)
The XBOX360 component cable has a switch on it regulating whether it is a Standard TV or HDTV. Wonder if that was fried somehow. Hopefully it is something simple.
I have a Xbox 360 Elite and it is hooked up to my Westinghouse 37" 37w3 monitor via component cables.
I was playing Mass Effect last night and after finishing a long run, I turned my console off. When I started the console up again, I noticed the XBOX boot screen was REALLY faded and washed...
My father-in-law and I decided to get creative.
Right before I was ready to start taking pieces out of the system, we popped the front of the case off to expose the hole front panel and its wires. With barely any effort, we pulled one of the two wire connectors from the power switch. The heat...
Gotta make this quick! Sorry for lack of details!
I just put together a new system last night. I have the ANTEC P182 case and the XFX 680i mobo. I have the OCZ XStream 700w PSU.
I hooked everything up and when I hit the power button, nothing happened. (I checked the back of the PSU to make...
If you have the cash, m3ta1head's suggestions are great. I'm just getting back into the building scene, but these are great ideas. From EVERYTHING I hear, avoid the striker at all cost. Could be rumor, but I'm not going to take the chance with my new system.
You mean minimum right?
List some of the games you'll be playing.
I currently have a slower system with a x1950 Pro and I am able to play COD4 w/o shadows at 1400x800 pretty well. It isn't the fastest, but you know, you can always upgrade when you come up with some more cash. All I know is...
Thanks for all the advice guys. Man I am loving Hardforums! You guys are awesome.
I'm gonna hold off on the mouse. I have the MX1000 and it does ok. I'm gonna save up for a new speaker set for my PC.
Best of luck this Christmas guys!
I'm getting this drive in this week. Should have my system together by Monday so I'll post my opinions on it soon. I'm pretty pumped about it. Had a friend who really did a lot of research for me as to what to get and he said the speeds on this were as good (and sometimes better) than the Raptor...
I noticed that you're currently using the EVGA 680i A1 board. I've been trying to get it for a while and wanted to know what your experience with the board has been.
Looking at the rest of the system, I would assume that you could easily change it out if you were not satisfied with...
Thanks tiraides and the rest.
I just found this article and thought it was interesting. Check out the performance hits Vista 64 takes compaired to XP over 9 games.
I think it's pretty substantial. Think this review is valid? After...
With Christmas coming up, I was thinking about getting Vista 32/64 "whatever". I talked to my friend and he felt that the hit in memory wasn't worth the headache and money Vista would cost me. He felt that $200+ was just too much when other things are coming out I could use.
Am I insane...
My GX1000 is getting old (and heavy).
And I completely agree with the previous poster about Logitech's CS department. I called and told them my first GX1000 was crashing and they said another one was on my way. I asked if I needed to pack the old one up and he said nope. Just trash it...
