Default Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 280 or GTX 260" thread


I just received my EVGA GTX280 SC. This is how the swap went.

1. Uninstalled Drivers
2. Uninstalled AGEIA PHxyX Driver
3. Shutdown
4. Took out my EVGA 9800 GX2 SSC (only had it a week and its going back for the 280 i just got)
5. Installed my new EVGA GTX280 SC
6. Booted up windows, Installed new 177.35 Vista 64 & installed new Nvidia PhysX driver

All i can say is OMFG what a difference this card has made in Crysis (Only tryed this so far)

When i had the 9800 GX2 installed, Crysis would stutter and freeze badly, game was unplayable (in high settings at 1920x1200 no AA)

Now i can play exact same settings as smooth as silk.

Also the heat output from the 280 is no where near as bad as the GX2 was. The GX2 would heatup the sides of my case (Lian-Li V2000) badly, the 280 is alot cooler.

I would definatly recommend this product to all.

This is a 100% Kickass product
Intel Skulltrail D5400XS, 2 x Xeon 5450 Cpus, 8GB FB DIMM Ram, EVGA GTX 280 SC,
