What's Your Video Hardware?

  • Well you are true about the melting x2s but the PhysX is cheating in 3dmark im not saying its not in games but in 3dmark il say it is when it overwrites dlls and as i said i usually check muropaketti for news etc and reviews and im not really gettin those im gonna buy 4870 as its best price-performance card theres out... And im using 1280X1024 reso as i have 19'' monitor-.-

    And we really should stop this its so offtopic and it really doesnt matter -.-

    And I know that X2 is dual gpu and 280 is single but in future i think that almost all videocards will be dual or quadro or more gpus as its cheaper and easier to make multiple and connect em. As you can see from the prices and I would use nvidia too if they would have lower prices. When 280 came out it cost like 700 dollars? and when X2 came out it cost 400 dollars and after that nvidia lowered the 280 to 500 or something? so theres a hell lot air in the prices. the end.

    PS. When u must be so rich when u got good pc send me one 280 :p

    All good mate. Nothing wrong with a good debate. In fact, I was thinking of making a debate thread... it's a fine art

    I dunno about pricing where you live... but over here the 4870x2 is still like $850, where a GTX280 is more like $600. When I bought my GTX280's they were about $850 each but that was a whole 2 months ago I hate how fast things go cheaper.

    I think an awesome option is two 4870's in Crossfire as they will still kick total ass, yet they run a LOT cooler than an X2. At any rate, any kind of dual SLI or Crossfire setup is going to be seriously fast no matter which way you look at it. If you like to chase numbers and like to run benchmarks then sure, a 4870x2 is certainly faster... in fact it is the fastest card out right now. I just didn't like them due to price point and the HEAT.... omg 120�C... what the hell were ATI thinking?

    Anyway... I don't like arguing, but a point of view backed up with facts and figures can always end up a good debate. It's one of the few things I really enjoy doing whether I end up being wrong, right, or somewhere in between. It's the best way to really learn about something.

    Cheers
