This's what i wrote earlier..... Read the scroll to bottom please....
Installed F.E.A.R, AND TR Legends with my 8800 GTX.
All the games are runnings**te! My 2x7800 GTX ran better!!
Ok, now i realise my 3800x2 is causing a bottle neck.... I HOPE!
Has anyone else tried a 8800 GTX with 3800x2 939??
I thought at least those games would fly with this card! Am i missing somin here???
PS - Please check my Bio if you don't know my set up, both 7800's removed
and replaced with 8800 GTX (New rig will be made soon)
New rig as from Next week
Intel Core 2 DUO E6600 "LGA775 Conroe" 2.40GHz (1066FSB)
Asus Striker Extreme nForce 680 (Socket 775) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard
BFG GeForce 8800 GTX 768MB GDDR3 HDTV/Dual DVI (PCI-Express)
I'm playing TR Legends with Next Gen Graphics on and here's the settings I've selected
from desk top:
Anistroptic Filtering 16x
Antialiasing Gama Correction ON
Antialiasing Mode Enhance the Application Setting
Antialising Setting 16x
Antialiaising Transperancy SuperSampling
Conformant Texture Clamp Use Hardware
Force MipMaps Tri Liniear
Texture Filtering - AA Sample Opt On
Texture Filtering CLAMP
Texture Filtering - Quality QUALITY
Texture Filtering - Trilinear Opt ON
Threaded Optimization ON
Triple Buffering ON
Vertical Sync Force ON (i hate tearing!!)
All in game settings for Tomb Raider Legend are set to Highest and running
at resolution of 1600x1200.
This game with all those settings runs at 50/60 FPS!!!!!
FEAR all settings are exactly the same as above AND all in game settings
set to highest, all shadows on, EVERYTHING and running at 60fps
(i got Vsync on remember)
This is unbelievable!! This card is amazing. This is what I've been looking for.
No jaggies, nothing.
Start saving your cash guys, get the OT in at work this card is a dream come true!
Hehe I'm installing 2142 tonight...I'll let you know the deal lol!
FEAR's one of the laggiest games when I'd 2x7800GTX's on the go, i still had to
run the game with shadows off to get a decent frame rate. Not anymore.
I think I'm gonna become a social outcast once more lol!
Yea no probs! I just formatted last night, and just wanted games on asap!
What kinda screenies would you like?
If you want I'll show you the desk top settings, etc, and in game stuff too.
Remember I got Vsync on so the FPS will be limited - i do not like tearing lol!
Airman, I done a complete format, installed the drivers from the 8800 disk, and they
were crap!! So uninstalled and downloaded the updated ones from nVidia
I lost all my software on back up cos of my hiper blowing up and corrupting my
HDD. I got my Fraps back on, but i had software to take pics of desktop and can't
remember what it was called
Haha Yours Truly... you're like a drug pusher but in a Hardware Pusher sort of way hehe!
I'd love that size of monitor, but i think i've went way over my budget for the mean time.
I'll get another LCD in the near future.
