wow..just wow, i got some maintance done to my jeep today and they....found some problems with it

Bye Bye GX2, i'll still think of you in my dreams :'(

Btw, wtf is cracking? i've never heard ANYONE say that, not here in canada, or in the states. Sounds like a saying that could only be pulled off in the UK, like "sodding"

I will probably have one of these in a year or two. I usually upgrade every other graphics series.

if the drivers allow it too, didnt it have horrible FPS in the crysis benches?

Well, I was contemplating running a 3780 X2 for my new build, then SLI'ing 9600gt's, then this one, the 9800 X2. But for the price and performance, It's not worth it.

If real world results are like this on big reviews, and the price is about $200 MORE then a 3870 X2, this card won't do so hot. I'll be going to a 3870 X2. I haven't used an ATI since I had my 9800 back when HL2 came out.

Granted, it is the fastest and most BA card out there, it's about $200 more then it's competitor. And doesnt look like it provides $200 more in performance.

Not really crappy....not too good either.

But thats pretty high resolution for Crysis aswell.

the 9800 is going to be the skippable gen. Its just nvidia making money off the people too stupid to research the products. Just wait until the next set of cards.

your GTS can Not run tri SLI even if you bought 3 cards.

but anyway, things are lookin a bit better. if they get that AA bug looked at i'll be getting one of these. but if im stuck not using AA it aint worth 700$. i love my AA. seeing jaggies makes me want to puke in this day and age.
