Re: Official "I just got my GeForce GTX 280 or GTX 260" thread
Well I just dumped two POS 4870s (512MB) in Crossfire for a silky smooth XFX GTX 260 (216) Black Edition!
Should be arriving tomorrow in the post!
I will never go back to ATI again...EVER The drivers are scandalous and Catalyst 8.11 broke everything as you will see by all the problems ATI users are reporting. I have been using ATI since the 3870X2 and have had nothing but problems. ATI only introduce profiles for games 3 months after they have come out....
Sorry to say this but ATI are just like AMD CPU's.. an exercise in cutting corners and mediocrity.
Really for a simple life its Intel and Nvidia all the way... I hope Nvidia come back and take the performance and bang for buck crown from ATI.... Cos they certainly have their drivers locked down compared to cheapo AMD who can't afford a decent driver team...
