  1. Um... I know what Physics are. I was just wondering if another company had a physics product named physx. I couldnt see it happening.
  2. I haven't finished the first one yet, but I like it. Hmmm.... I thought I remember it using physx, but now that you mention it, coming from a company like Crytek, I'm not surprised that they didn't use Physx. Thanks for the correction though.
  3. Hmmm..... I don't really have anything else to try. Sorry.
  4. Hmmm... I don't know. The only thing I could say is reinstall it and see if it fixes.
  5. Yea, I know what you mean. See I was thinking that since the physx processing will be offloaded to my 9800GT, it might open up some processing for the GTX 460 to do. Well, I guess it is just time to wait and see. Once the EVGA GTX 460 EE comes out I think I'm going to have to jump up and buy one. Thanks for all of your guys help. If I have anymore question I'll be sure to ask!
  6. Are you playing Crysis Warhead with any AA? Also, considering I will also have a Physx card, do you think that Crysis Warhead will be playable at max? I believe I've heard that Warhead is a little more graphics intensive then Crysis. And yea if you can test it that would be great! Thanks.
  7. Well could the crysis problem also be with the lower resolution? Aren't you running 1680x1050 on a 1920x1200 screen? Would there be problems with running a 16:10 resolution an a 16:9 display?
  8. Couldn't the pixels in crysis be because you are at medium setting? Also what setting do you have GTA IV on?
  9. Ah, very very good. Yeah I was expecting having to change it but that is once and done. Great! Ah, yeah I love EVGA, they haven't failed me once. This is also great news. So considering Crysis is still top dog on the taxing of the GPU, will I be able to run it at max + full AF + and at least 2xAA or 4xAA on 1080 at 30FPS? If not at stock will I be able to run it at 800MHz and achieve 30FPS? This is with factoring in my 9800GT doing Physx. Thanks.
  10. Yea, I heard about AA not being as needed on higher resolution monitors, thats why i asked. Ah, I didn't know that AF was less taxing then AA. That's good considering I will still be needing it on my bigger monitor. It's not really a restocking question, because that variant of the card hasn't been released yet. EVGA has only released the GTX 460 in the standard fan in the middle configuration that blows air out the front and the back. I am waiting for the fully external exhaust variant of EVGA's GTX 460 to buy because I would like it blowing out of the case, and with my current 9800GT, it fits for airflow better. I was just wondering if EVGA had given a release date for the external exhaust card. I figured this, but my main concern was if games nowadays support 16:10 and 16:9. Thanks again.
  11. That's kind of what I figured. But since they are the same aspect ratio, will the stretching and shrinking not occur? The only thing I could see happening is that it would be like pixel doubling. Great. What I'll probably do is put it at around 800MHz. Alright great to here. I was just worried because I was looking around and to take crysis for example, I looked like they didn't have a 1080p resolution for it. The only way that you could is by making a custom resolution in the control panel or something like that.... True? Good. The only difference in image quality is that it will be stretched correct? Well is restocking same as releasing? This one I overlooked. I forgot that it runs x16 and x4. Not just x16 then if the other is in use x8 & x8. The x16 slots goes directly into the CPU lane, and the x4 goes to the chipset. This is good knowing that the x4 will be used for just Physx. I couldn't even imagine anyone running full rendering on an x4 slot. Haha, yea this upgrade is long overdue. I was cut on my budget when I built my Core i5 system and i didn't have the money to buy extra things. I had an old 1024x768 LCD laying around so my only concern was to get a card that could push crysis on max with the highest AA and AF. The 9800GT did that for me and it was only like 130 for the 1GB EVGA version. Naturally knowing about the physx config I could do in the future with a bigger monitor I grabbed the 1GB version for longevity. Finally, a new question. For AA, as you get a bigger monitor the need for it decreases correct(Because of the density of the pixels.)? AF stays constant across all monitor resolutions correct? Thanks.
  12. I am currently thinking of purchasing a new graphics card and a monitor to accompany it. I've been looking at a price point of about 400 for both. Right now i am looking at a GTX 460 1GB, and a 1080p or 1920x1200 monitor. I know that the 1GB of vram will definitely help on most games at higher resolution and that is why i picked it. Currently, these are the products I am looking at: Graphics Card: EVGA GTX 460 1GB External Exhaust Monitor: ASUS 23" 1080p Monitor Here are my questions: 1. Will the GTX 460 be able to push the 1080p or 1920x1200 monitor at max specs in games at a FPS of at least 30(I know it probably wont be able to touch Crysis at 1080 and a 30 FPS frame rate, but i can do with just high, not very high)? 2. Will I be able to run the game at 1600x900 on a 1080p monitor, or 1680x1050 on a 1920x1200 without the monitor having any problems besides the lower resolution(you might not understand what i am saying)? 3. How high do you think I can push the GTX 460 in overclocking? I've seen them as high as 840mhz stable, but it has varied from what i have seen. Is it safe to say 800mhz stable? 4. Are all current games able to run on 1080p? or may they need 1920x1200? This is very crucial to my decision. 5. Can a 1920x1200 monitor run 1080p? Can a 1080p monitor run 1680x1050? 6. I know that the GTX 460 card i am looking at is only at the preorder stage, but when do you think it will be on newegg? I want the external exhaust feature because of my case design. 7. Will I be able to run my current EVGA 9800GT 1GB as a sole physx card alongside my new GTX 460? 8. Last but not least, I have a Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2 Motherboard, and I have two PCIe slots and two PCI slots. Naturally, my GTX 460 would go into my PCIe 1 slot, and the 9800GT into the second slot. Then my PCI wireless card would go between them in the only open PCI slot. But one problem, since P55 chipsets only allow 1 x16 PCIe lane, the PCIe lanes would split into x8 and x8. At this point, would the added physx card give me any benifit over just the GTX 460 doing rendering and physx in a x16 lane? Current Graphics Card: EVGA 9800GT 1GB Current Monitor: Dell 1024x768 Monitor Thanks for the help.
  13. Hm.... I guess I'll write gigabyte about it then. Hm... I really don't see what would be the problem though. If anyone has any other ideas, I'd be appreciated. I'll try and keep messing with things, and see what happens. EDIT: Went in and set performance enhance to turbo from standard, and it boots perfectly. Running memtest now. EDIT: How many passes of memtest do you think is appropriate? My RAM went threw 11 Passes with no errors. They are running at 1.7GHz with a voltage of 1.56v.
  14. Yea, my heatsinks on my RAM right now don't run hot at all. And plus my aftermarket CPU Cooler pulls air directly over the teeth on the heatspreaders. Still looking for solutions to the problems I've been having though.
