Welcome to the pit and NICEEE system.

 

 

& if you are planning to OC, run only 2 sticks of RAM to achieve the best results. :)

 

 

Roger, your system is perfectly fine mann! My first system was a quarter of that last year and i still entered!

 

 

Would you not have a guilty concious if we lost by a mere point, that couldve been YOUR points that won the FW?

Our team is starting to fill up pretty good. Miggs, you gota join!! WAter or not! :P

I ordered 2 4870X2 this morning. This year is gonna be pretty harsh. :mrgreen:

Hey Sho, whats your specs

 

I will man!!.. give me time, its not till next month anyway. Oh and 2 4870X2, waste of money, one is good enough for now, 2 in Crossfire isn't all that much difference than a single one.

Roger, You wont regret it. :mrgreen:

 

 

Miggs. Dont worry, Pay later helped alot. Im not keeping them both. When they go out of stock, I am returning my card so then I get a refund. then, I am ordering it again and repeating the process.

 

This way, I have them for FW and to mess with. check TRP.

 

 

I have no intention to waste $1200 on video cards. I found a loop hole. :mrgreen:

For most games, yes, it is a total waste of money. But for 3DMock Vantage, I'm sure they'll come in handy.

 

Oh, and I must know... Is the PhysX cheat for nVidia allowed? If so, then I'm out.

 

 

Its a waste of money, bench or not. Its already filled with 2gb of GDDR5. Your :filtered: :filtered: if you think 2 is worth it to play counter strike on a 17" monitor :rofl2:

 

 

 

Why, with a 4870 its fair game. they cheat, you score major points for having a real card, So I see no harm

Still think 2 of them too expensive not worth it. If you did want to waste money, get a better board, better case. Something better.

 

Imo for most of us using low resolution 2x4870 is even overkill, a 4850CF is more than enough.

It's overkill, no doubt, but all that matters to me is that nVidia pulled an AMD. They relied on G92 for too long, and look what it got them: Horrible profit margins, a huge, hot chip, and falling stock prices.
