Default Re: Ordering a new card tomorrow...

You fellows caught me. I'm an nVidia fan boy that doesn't know how to properly configure AA settings in the CCC. Perhaps I'll figure it out after I've owned enough ATi cards and maybe not

I'm so dense that I usually set filtering in game if provided the opportunity.

It's true 4xAA may be selected in the STALKER CoP bench they provide...

however in their game this option does not exist. Nor do things like; DX11, tessellation and contact hardening shadows.

I've never seen a reviewer mention FPS dropping to 12-15 on the Assault Harbor level for no reason at all in Crysis at the harbor near and around the ship using Crossfire X. I guess that is in my head as well.

When Anantech and [H]ard talked up ATi cards in AoC, including the HD 4870 X2, I never saw them mention FPS dropping to 15 and staying there after zoning into an indoor play field like a Villa if AA was active using Crossfire. I never saw them mention wild shadow flickering or corruption using Crossfire X either. Yet another product of my overactive imagination.

I love buying graphics cards and then selling them or RMAing them for a loss. It's a hobby of mine, what can I say?

It should be painfully obvious by now I'm an nVidia fan boy who has never praised ATi cards on this forum or any other.
