Hello,i have a XFX Geforce 6800 GT but i'm not very happy with it. :kill:
Its seems that he don't preform very well, i clocked the card on 420/1120 with my NV5 cooler.
I run CoD:UO MP and the fps don't get higher then 80 fps and sometimes its drop to 40 fps with AAx8 and AFx4.
It dont play very well and i don't get it, a have a good machine:

P4 3.2@3.8 GHz Prescott
Asus P4P800SE
1024 DDR 400 Mhz Dual Channel
120 GB HD Sata
WinXp Prof.
Driver 66.81 (Tried more drivers but same problem.)

My 3dmark05 score was 5887, but that was no problem at all.
Can anyone help me, or someone buy me card so i can get a X800 :tongue2:

With 8XAA, even if it's an relatively old game, you are bound to get performance dips. 40 fps is pretty much where u start not to notice transistions between frames. Perhaps you should start a thread in the For Sale section if you want to sell your GT.

Um lower your AA to 4x and up your AF to 8x... Running 8xAA and getting 80FPS is great... I mean come on!

I'll say! :retard:

I use my GT at 4xAA and 8xAF. It flys at those setting
and looks super. :D

Now i got AA to 8 and AF to 4 and now i get more fps thx.
I payed 400 euro for it so i expect that he can pull this easely :angel2:

I always use 4xAA & 8xAF on my GT. IMO, If you're playing at 1280x1024 or above, you don't need any higher than 4xAA.

I play CoD @1280 with 8xAF. Mine flies as well and looks great.

Anything above 4xAA isnt very usefull if you game past 1280x1024. Just rapes ur fps. :ORDER: BTW, try the 66.70's, they are VERY good drivers :D

I play CoD:UO at 1024x768 also with 8xAA 16xAF. Sometimes it dips to 30-40fps during a really really intense scene for a few seconds, but who am I to whine about it. It's 8xAA, it runs perfectly smooth 99% of the time, it's more than perfect for me. An X800 isn't going to make it faster, in fact, it'll make it slower since the OpenGL performance is lower. If you're not happy with performance with your GT as it is in pretty much any game, getting ANY other card including like X800XT-PE won't suddenly improve performance magically to make it perfect for you., no it'll probably pretty much be the same. The only setup you could get for truly more performance would be a Dual SLI 6800U.

CodUO uses vsync does it not? If your Hz is 80 then it cant go any higher.

Supersampling AA ist good for playing ancient games but not for anything else. Stick to 4x AA and you'll be fine.
I doubt you'll notice any difference at all.
I own an ATI card and it can do 6x AA but i didn'T even try it out yet.
1280x960 4xAA is delivering a perfect IQ to me. Everything above that is for geeks looking at screenshots searching for jaggies.
If you wanna play games go for 4x AA and you'll be happy with your GT.
Since it OCs so well i wouldn't sell it for sure.

Well if its an OpenGL game he *may* get higher max fps at 4xAA with a 6800 GT but then again you have to keep in mind that ATi cards have triple buffering so he could set vsync to on at 85 hz and experience more consistent fps with an x800 vs his GT. Again, thats if he enjoys playing his game with vsync on and by the sounds of it (limit of 80 odd fps) it seems that way.
