    Changing GPU - Windows 7 Clean Install?

    i had a bad experience going from nvidia to amd on my cousins computer. i used driver sweeper and did a proper uninstall and install. Every game he launched would crash with a blue screen and only a fresh windows install fixed it worth a shot but if you notice games are crashing do a...

    CM9 w/ ICS: Is It Coming to Your Phone?

    i hear that, i was getting similar results with gingerbread too before i put CM7 on it. going from that kind of run time to 3/4 of a day wouldnt fly with me either. hopefully they get the bugs worked out in some future releases. i may leave cyanmod completely, i was a bit surprised it used more...

    Something isn't right (Corsair H100)

    where is your rad sitting and how are you push/pulling? do you have 4x120mm fans on the h100 or are you using the rv02 180mm fans + the stock corsair fans? im thinking the rad is getting heat soaked or your push/pull is not proper.

    My GTX 590 is bottlenecking my system

    are you forcing any settings in your nvidia control panel? reset all settings back to default in your control panel if you changed any settings. certain settings can TANK your performance without any visual notice

    October Nexus Prime rumors

    sorry this may have already been asked but anyone going to upgrade from their nexus s to this phone? im debating, i currently have a nexus s that replaced my nexus one. i almost feel i have to get the prime, but i dont want to get into that fanboyism :eek: the nexus s does everything amazing...

    Contemplating tri-monitor for BF3 - 2x570 work?

    if you are set on the 570's, get the EVGA 570 GTX 2.5GB. 2 of those should drive that setup well. overclock the 570s and you will be set. thats if you are in a rush, if you can wait, just get the next wave of cards. maybe nvidia will give reference designs more vram

    Is upgrading from X58/i7 920 to Z68 /2600K worth while?

    i will be running both my 920's into the ground. it would be foolish to upgrade if all you do is gaming. you may see a 5fps difference above 120 fps but who cares? you will never notice it. clock the 920 to 4ghz, and it wont be a bottleneck for a few years still. it will still be powerful...

    Super Mega VS H80 VS H100 VS Custom Water Cooling - Help! - Can't Decide!

    from someone who has a rv-01 with an h50, let me advise against getting anything with a rad for that case. the ft02 was designed for air cooling, you will heat soak the shit out of your rad in that case. my h50 is mounted at the top exhaust, and ALL the hot air is soaked into the rad from the...

    Post your "rate my cables" here

    ^thanks, it helped a ton. cards idle at like 35c, and load up to 70ish. plus i skipped a space so the cards didnt sandwich, air flow is amazing to the cards. took out the PCI brackets too so there was no air pockets, just nice flow. you are right, its a silverstone AP-181, so you get that...

    Poor BFBC2 performance with xfire'd 4850s

    my e8400 @ 4ghz was still a bottle neck in bc2. shit ran 100% all the time on both cores and i could never get more then like 35-40fps with a 4870x2 and SLI 8800 GTX's on medium settings. if thats playable for you then do it, but i need a steady 60fps for any first person shooter. id save your...

    October Nexus Prime rumors

    ^very true. could very well be the reason they are going samsung again. samsung was probably like we either make the phone and use our screen, or someone else makes the phone and we wont give you these screens, we will keep them for our phones.

    October Nexus Prime rumors

    i read an article aswell today about this. i thought LG was doing the next nexus device. i hope samsung doesnt go totally cheap-o on the overly plastic design like on the nexus s. was a trade off that is hard to deal with coming from the nexus one.. im sure it will be on spirit. no nexus...

    Fudzilla Confirms - Kepler coming after SI

    nvidia will have the more powerful single GPU card, they seem to always do? where AMD shines is price/performance and i bet AMD will win and keep winning in that area. i expect nvidias 28nm flagship single core card to beat out AMD's single core offering.

    upgrading from 4870x2 (yes, another one of these threads...)

    im not sure if you are dead set on upgrading. the 4870x2 from sapphire came with a DVI to HDMI adapter, that allowed you to plug a regular HDMI cable into the card. this gave you audio/video from the card. im unsure if the 4870x2 supported true bitstreaming but if you are just trying to get...

    4870x2 Died, New Card Choices?

    yea and the best part of that is, the results are for 1920x1200. at 1600p, i can assure you the dual GPU cards are going to pull much further away from the single core 6950

    Powercolor 1gb 6950 with CCC installed = "Display driver stopped responding" repeated

    this, my cousin went from nvidia to ati, and i personally did the driver sweeper/clean driver install for him. he complained non stop about blue screens and lock ups and was getting sick of ati. i told him to do a clean windows install and he has not locked up once since. worth a short, win 7...

    4870x2 Died, New Card Choices?

    you wont find an apples to apples benchmark as the 4000 series is very old now. the 6000 series is being benched on current gen games, which you wont find benchmarks for the 4000 series on. would have to find someone to do the benches that have both cards. i didnt take any screenshots when i did...

    4870x2 Died, New Card Choices?

    at 1600p 1 6950 is NOT faster then a 4870x2. you need 2 gpu's at that res and a 4870x2 pumps out great frames. i had 2 4870x2's and did some testing, at that res 1 6950 will give you half the frames of the 4870x2 usually. of course you cant run as high AA without impacting the performance on the...

    Sapphire 68501GB not performing like it should. Help

    turn your shadow texture setting from ultra to high. that is the most CPU intensive setting. you will get almost double the FPS from changing that setting. if high doesnt do it turn it right now. also step down the mutli sampling a bit, to like 2x or 4x. ultra in general is too high of a...

    Moving to 1440p, need advice

    i run that res and use 2 6950s unlocked. you need the processing power of 2 gpu's bare min to get any decent FPS at that res. also vram is an issue, and 2gb is a sweet spot. imo either 2x 69xx, a 6990 or sli 580 3GB is what you want to do. based on price, the 6950s will give you best bang for...

    GTX 580 Vram Question @ 2560x1600

    What graphic card should I get for this res?

    you will get more life for sure. 1 gtx 580 cannot handle that res by itself well. you need 2 cores believe it or not to process that kind of res with high AA and max settings. if you cant find reference 6950s with the bios switch, it wont make that big of a difference to be honest since you are...

    What graphic card should I get for this res?

    i have the same monitor, i run 2 6950s unlocked in CFX. runs everything like a dream. personally at that res id never look at anything less then 2GB of vram, and 2 cores are required if you want 60fps+ in most titles. this will also give you head room for future titles that will gobble up more...
