Clean pics, good info, great review.


I give it a pi+6.86
Is my Razer Diamondback retro yet?
s

Graciously recommended from KB, is some muffricken Christian death metal. It is a must hear, it pushes envelopes, explores new ground. Words can't describe just now incredibly awesome this is. Cue the alter smashing, bench flipping, and bible reading while thrashing away at guitars and drums.

I witnessed regional Special Olympics and Challenge Day; there's far more intellect there than there is in internet arguments.

PI + 6.86 > 10

ya big noob...


looks like another serious contender in the cheap-performance area... just depends on the *actual* pricing I guess... all these new cards in the UK are so expensive lol, not anything like as cheap as the estimated dollar value...

Those are good prices in comparison to the nvidia cards I am with mojo when he says hes waiting for the new drivers to come out curios to see what kind of performance enhancement the drivers actually push out. Those rydermark scores were much lower then I thought they would be too. Good review

Thats fine and dandy but when its not exactly stable its not a smart idea to start overclocking thats my point.

i wish the reviews had other cards like the 7900s or 1900x cards for comparison, other than doing the benchmark myself i cant tell if my cards better or not. using the same games (far cry, COD2, Quake 4) it shouldnt be to hard

Ya I hear what you are saying sometimes there is just not enough time to test everything.

This gives you an idea with this review.
