  1. Well when the 295's were released I had 2 of them in quad-sli and I paid 600 dollars each for them and Im in the mainstream market.... right now I have 2 5870s in CF that beat the crap out of those 295's I used to have..... If nVidia ACTUALLY PRODUCES a dual gpu gf110 card i doubt it'll cost less then 800 and alot more people will be leaning towards the 6990 as well as myself. BUT they promised a dual gpu card then the 480 came out and failed horribly which is why I dont think they'll make one.
  2. Like i've said before I'll believe the dual gpu nvidia card when I SEE it. I dont think they'll make one......
  3. i dont think it'll be that high when the 6870 released at 350.00 im expecting around 600 so unless nVidia lowers the price of the 580 its gonna be ATI ftw AGAIN
  4. I have a strong feeling once the 6990 is released everyone's gonna forget all about the 500 series
  5. Well I play BFBC2 with everything maxed out and my vid settings all on max quality and still get 120-140fps at 1080p so I dont think I have a gpu bottleneck. You obviously dont know how powerful a 5870 is lmao
  6. How do I do all of that without being able to see the game once it opens?
  7. lol Bottleneck? This is the only game I've ever had a problem with....
  8. Lol I thought maybe there was something wrong with the one he burned so he brought his copy over and does the exact same thing......
  9. Whats up everyone. Yesterday I ran into a problem I've NEVER seen before and I thought maybe someone on here could help me out. My friend burnt me a copy of Hawx because I wanted to play it before I went out to buy the new one. I installed the game and everything and there weren't any problems at all. When I first went to open the game it did it's little update thing and then installed the update and everything was fine. When I click on the icon my screen goes black and there is a little box that says "INPUT NOT SUPPORTED" and it kinda floats all over the monitor and I have to go to the task manager and close it out manually. Now I can hear sound and everything but I just cant see anything........ This one's really got me stumped. I've tried a google/yahoo/bing search and couldn't come up with anything. I read about guys having problems with no sound but not no video. I have an Acer X233H 23" Monitor if the helps. I've tried lowering the resolution all the way down and that didn't change anything so I dont know. I'd like to play it so I can decide if I want to buy the new one but its kinda hard when I cant see anything on the screen lol. Please help if you can, Thanks. Matt
  10. Lol Intel HD I'd like to see someone try to play bfbc2 or metal of honor with that there "graphics" chip
  11. Im not disappointed in the 6970 at all...... Its a hundred and twenty dollars cheaper...... Buy two of them and run them in crossfire. When the 6990 comes out what's nVidia going to compete with then? Yes I know they're "talking" about a 595 but honestly I reallly doubt they ever even come out with that card. They're going to ride the 580 out as long as they possibly can just like with the 480.......... Im sticking with ATI/AMD
  12. Yeah telling someone on here to stfu will get you banned pretty fast. Bosco doesnt play around about that kind of stuff, just letting you know........
  13. The most power that can be supplied through a pci express x16 slot is 75 watts of power....... Most high performance video cards pull well over that usually around 300 plus watts under full load so like I said before most of the power is supplied through the connectors on the card.....
  14. Thats why all the cards you see today or at least most of them have power connectors on them. I haven't seen a card that draws ANY power through the slot in a long time. Its simply not needed anymore.....
