Wow you mean you acctually did buy a X1800XT, for some reason i didnt believe you at first, but no doubts now. You give me more reason not to buy a ATI card. And i use to be a ATI fanboy back in the day, till i bought a 6800 cause it offered more price/performance then ATI's cards at the time (9800PRO, etc.)
firstly your comparng a single card to 2 cards which just is biased towards the nvidia system. what you should do is compare a single ati to a single nvidia. that is whats known as a fair test.
secondly if you must use sli, compare that to crossfire
thirdly, is it a direct comparason? as in using the same hardware/software for both tests?
fourthly you are comparng an overclocked version of the 7800gt to the x1800xt, surly for a fair test you should reset the 7800gt to default clocks, or overclock the ati by the same percentage.
finally isnt the x1800xt the top of the line ati hardware? shouldnt that be cmpared to the top of the line nvidia hardware such as the gts? or am i out of date when it comes to the model numbers?
In the past few years, you have owned more graphics cards then i have owned in my life, lol. this year you had:
then 2 6600GTs in SLI
then 2 6800GTs in SLI
then 2 BFG 7800GTs in SLI
then a X1800XT 512
then 2 BFG 7800GTs A-2s in SLI
now another X1800XT 512

"none of them have the power to run full eye candy and still get 60 FPS in Fear.
2 7800 GTX 512 maby."
F.E.A.R. ran everything max ( Ingame settings and drivers maxed ) and got around 170FPS high, 45FPS min, 70FPS average( In Sli ). Thing is, after playing for about 5mins my whole rig just shuts off. The two cards run fine by themselves in each slot, but once I put them in Sli it does this. This only happens when I play games. :x
But still, one card alone can play F.E.A.R. maxed out. Although the test settings options says I get a low frame rate, I was playing without any lag or stutters ( No lag in the middle of a gun fight with 6-7 NPCs ). Think it is the motherboard because even my 4800 is getting low scores ( compared to those who have a 4800 @ stock on TRP, they get around 27k while I get around 17k to 19k ). Anyone know the problem?
DeafGuy C. i realy could care less. Your just jealous I have a X1800Xt 512 and your Don't.
OK now i turn to you all for help
In ATI overdrive the box that's checked Enable ATI clock overdrive for 3D applications only. Box is locked and will not let me uncheck it. So ATI tool is useless. How can i unlock this box and uncheck it?
