Supreet,

I said locally. I mentioned CompUSA, whom I have bombarded with phone calls. Pointing me to Monarch Computers is useless to me. Anyway, Monarch are a bunch of bumbling morons. They screwed up my last order by two weeks and then shipped it to the wrong address. In the process, my friend received the item 3 weeks late.

And I just called Monarch and they *DON'T* HAVE* any in stock. So much for the Crossfire hype. I don't buy stuff with the "we ship it when we get it" mentality.

There seemed to be a good bit of corruption on the reflections, thats where I thought the quality was a bit below par for a 6800gt..

that one may be closer to your pick RSA.

I do notice that the X1800Xt class has killer color and detail but reflections are 100% different. Almost smoothed out to the point there not really noticeable.

Nice pic PCGEEK.

For some reason I just dont like the graphics in Farcry, they are almost 'too' colourful, get me? A little too 'cartoony' or something, maybe I'm just too picky.........

**EDIT**

Wrote this before your posts guys.

PCGEEK, thats how I imagined it _should_ look. Not really all that cartoony at all, colours are a lot less #in your face' and reflections look a lot more realistic. Textures even look nicer...

It seems that Crossfire X1800XT's are sold out. And they are on back order too. And ATI does not sell them on there website for some reason. And here in Canada, they are in back order like crazy, and the prices are jacked up higher than recommended by ATI. I smell rip-off, I think these PC Shops are ripping people off due to supply & demand :) And what sux is that they will sell out ASAP LOL,

Not fair though, but that is IMO.

WOW, PCGEEK, I just looked at the pic you presended & that is one good looking FarCry pic. Is that how it looks? Because mine does not look that colourful & crisp, though I am very happy with my quality, :)

I can't wait for ATI to release there AVIVO driver update. Hoping it will be in Cat 5.13 just before X-Mas :)

Exactly, I haven't seen such a great Image Quality in my life... amazing!

Adam, can you also post some Screenshots of 'inside' areas of HL2?, also, do you have Splinter Cell 'Chaos Theory'?.

PC Geek,

CompUSA does not sell the Crossfire Master cards, dude. The regular video cards are available now everywhere. Its the Crossfire thing that's hot and unavailable.

Well, BFG couldn't tell me when they would have their version of 7800GTX512 available (580/1700) which zipzoomfly.com wants $1000 each.

I have a business associate coming over from Taiwan and he claims that he can pick up two Asus King Kongs (550/1700) for me, at a very modest price of about $1250 each after currency translation.. lol.... I asked whether the price is before or after bribes to the wholesale distributor... lol

It seems like all the top end cards are being shipped to VoodooPC, Alienware and Falcon Northwest. Those systems are selling like hot cakes, but who wants some wanker assembling my baby?

Well, here in Canada, they want $1350 (tax inc) for the 7800GTX 512MB version & $720 (tax inc) for the X1800XT 512MB. The more demand the higher the prices go. it suxx when people dish out that much $moula$, which again, drives the prices up. It's those wakos which love to dish out that kind of green stuff LOL,

Shit, that $1350 don't justify it's performance at all. Heck I can buy 2 x X1800XT's for that price. But then again, crossfire cards are way backed up. Everybody is hitting there head on the concrete sidewalks waiting for one.

lol superxp it looks better on my pc i think it looses some of its quality when sent to a screen shot. Got to say I had no idea ATI was so killer . By the way The X1800XT has advanced AI and i think thats whats creating the color and detail. Also I was using temporal AA and adaptive aa at quality and high quality AF 16x.
