Well I got two GTX 280's with a third on the way. So yeah, I know and so does the dog that the 4800's are half the price and close to the performance some times. Some times they take a bit of a thumping like Crysis and sometimes they can thump the 280 like Bioshock. No matter what, nothings faster or likely to be much faster overall except perhaps 4870x2 CF. At any rate, nothing slow, not even Crysis very high at 1920x1200. I'll get getting a 30" in the next month or so I guess.

I only upgrade when I can get 2x performance for ~$200. the last time that happened was when I upgraded my 8600 for a 9600. guess I'll be skipping this generation. maybe there will be something for me in 2009...

Nice Cards

My GTX 260 should be arriving today.

Question is i ordered a Q9450 for my other computer...it should arrive tommorow.

Should i install the 260 now or wait and swap out the Q6600&8800 with the Q9450&GTX260 Tommorow?

I'm putting the Q6600 in my dad's machine,and giving the E6600 to my mom.

Default Re: So they're out. What will U DO?

Well i could not wait so i put it in last night...but i have a problem,

When i go into windows it sees the card and wants to search for drivers...so i cancel that and download the latest from Nvidia,i go and install them then i reboot.
when i get back into windows it sees the card again and wants to search for drivers

I have try the drivers from the disc,the drivers from Nvidia,the first set of drivers from before.

Still nothing....also there is a weird connection on the second plug for the card,right below the pins there is some plastic thing going across the opening so that the plug sits funny

i don't think it's hardware related because it would not even see the card if it was a dud..


Any Ideas&Suggestions would be great.

Its an EVGA GTX 260

Thanks.

Also when i use the auto search for drivers with the disc in...it finds the card and says "hardware could not be installed The parameter is incorrect"???

Are there two different versions of the disc ? maybe one for the 260 and one for the 280 because when the discs in it says EVGA 280
