People always talk about how the X850XT is the best card out there, and is the fastest card in existence today. Well, by sheer numbers, they are right..but they are forgetting one thing. What good will a faster framerate do you if your image quality is crap because you lack the proper shaders? As I said before, as far as future games are concerned...the Radeon X series are only DX8 cards, while the GeForce 6 series are true DX9 cards.

damn straight, and thats why im pissed. About the photos posted earlier, keep in mind that one of the them was PSM 2.0. very few devs have ever used psm 2.0. People are jumping straight from 1.1/1.4 to 3.0

Damn I was waiting for you to get on MSN to torture you about area 51.

For some reason, it seems like it is out in Canada.

Actually I just checked, it's advertised and "available" but out of stock

Im assuming you want pci-express. DFI Lanparty nForce 4 Ultra-D is the best one.

so what is it that you run on the X800pro?
HL2, an other random game demos.

I overclocked with the Cat. driver thing. Doesn't void the warrenty and decreases the speed to decrease the temp.

Which came first, the software or the hardware? Which came first the graphics card or the drivers?
