Default Re: GTX 470 or HD 5870?


I haven't attempted raiding with max details on any graphics card yet @ 1920x using filtering. As you already noted, potential slow downs could be deadly. When I raid I disable many features to keep my FPS as high as possible. Currently I'm not willing to risk party members lives because of an odd slow down or pause. If I tag along in a non essential role in the future I may try it.

I have done the Crow's Nest and areas like it with all on and maxed without difficulty and that's not the same as some of the most demanding raids.
