Another jealous lowly PCI-E user in denial of the DOMINANCE.


Important to note: If any SUPERIOR APG users are out there, to install an ATI series AGP card in windows 7 you must download the Vista 9.10 AGP hotfix drivers to your computer & extract them to a directory. Then, install the driver directly from device manager using the ATI directory and you're all set.
LOLZ. Every benchmark I've seen puts the 3850 slightly BEHINDthe 8800gtx. I don't think the Windows 7 video experience rating can be considered a thorough accurate. benchmark. If it were, we should be using that to review video cards....

Here is the article I mentioned in my original post for additional reference regarding Windows 7 vs Vista SP2 & XP SP3.

http://news.softpedia.com/news/Windo...n-124820.shtml


& Einstein, I know you're not exactly a dim bulb sir, but are you are looking at benchmarks for the 256mb 3850 HD or the AGP 512mb HD 3850? The only 8800 series card that may match or slightly edge the 3850 is the Ultra, but regardless there isn't an 8800 series card on the planet that "Blows the 512 mb HD 3850 out of the water" as the previous poster stated.

Why does one care if a 3 year old card is slightly better or worse than a 2 year old card? Oh wait I forgot we're talking about green frog man here.

This 3777 guy is off his rocker.

Hey, let's argue about AC vs. DC current and which is better. We can argue about which our electricity grid should use and why.

That's about as relevant as the 8800 vs 3850 discussion...

No kidding he is off.

This guy is the same guy who thinks his ashrock mobo agp blows away modern hardware?

And he thinks the 3850 is more superior than 8800's Wow just wow maybe a 7800 but no im sorry not an 8800 gts.

3777 , due go back to the club hose and rethink your statement.

The Superiority stands on its own merits. The main thing to consider here is that Windows 7 is simply Windows Vista sp2 with a few features changed around. Vista is a name that can't be marketed because of the way it was at launch, even though the now polished sp2 version of Vista is essentially what people are buying when they get Windows 7.

So is Windows 7 worth the upgrade if you are running XP? Absolutely, you're basically getting the rebadged 3 year old polished version of Vista. But for the roughly 18% of Windows users who currently have Vista with SP2, Windows 7, like PCI-E, is nothing more then a cheap marketing gimmick and could have been released to Vista owners as free service pack.

That said, like PCI-E, many people who understand will stick with Vista just as many have stuck with AGP.
