    Re: Safe to buy an X-Fi? user experiences.

    Mine periodically gets SC and P but not enough to put me off from getting another. It is ok 95% of the time. When it does start however it is aggravating.

    Re: How about this BFG 8800 GTS?

    Just finished the review.

    Ryan, your personal opinion. Do you think the fill rate test could possibly be a mistake or a driver issue with the GTS getting what I feel is quite a bit lower of a...

    First of all I believe ATI cards only have 6x AA? Perhaps you were mistaken?

    Regardless you need the 'new' control panel installed for the AA applications of higher than 4x to be selectable and...
  10. Re: Got EVGA 8800GTS step up..don't use cd drivers !.

    Very nice, so I take it you are happy with your purchases? What card did you come from before going to the GTS? Is 600/902 your max stable overclock that is artifact free? Can you do an 05/06 run...

    Re: LCD: 1280x1024 or 1600x1200

    1600 x 1200 without a doubt! The extra real estate with a bigger screen as well as a tighter image due to their being more pixels on screen is definately worth it in every aspect. With an 8800GTX...
  12. Re: Purchasing a video card in early December

    I would recommend the ATI X1950XTX. The best performing cards from ATI at the moment and not too far behind the lastest Nvidia 8800GTS. Drivers are great I think. I have used nothing but ATI cards...
  13. Re: My first build complete...well almost. =)

    Very nice setup indeed. Wait another month or two and get the X-Fi later, real easy to install at a later time. Same with the Raptor, get one down the road and use it as your boot/applications...

    Re: Dual monitor vs. performance

    I know the feeling, my 4800+ is clocking like a monster too. 2.844ghz at 1.384v. Not bad at all.
