lol, thanx. i thought it meant that, just making sure...besides noone should be afraid to ask any Q Ever no matter what it is. because you learn from a start right? i thought the L33T and words like that that i see in games all the time were beginning to take over. already you learn how to spell dog at 4, and by 16 everyone spells it Dawg. know what i mean? its not so much the fact that schools suck...its that we practicly devole as we get over because of the use of slang. If you dont believe me. go somewere that uses a different word for things and you start using it. It takes only 10 times to Form a Habit, but it takes aproxximatly 32 times to Break it. point ? yes, no?

Ah well, back to topic. Do you OverClock? like cpu and things in general? because if your looking for more FPS and your cards limit is tapped, ive noticed a 500 point difference between 2.8 stock and 3.5 OC P4 prescott on 3DMARK03, not too proud, but my highest score when i had my 5900se was like 6324, Heres a link if you wanna see. Linky Prob is i was messing around with clock speeds. so i took off the rest of the settings so i could do it faster, and i practicly hit myself when i achieved my highest score and only HALF ASS results.

These days I pretty much run stock speeds day-to-day, maybe after testing a card's limits once or twice.

I stopped chronic overclocking a year ago, when in the same month I killed a FX 5800 (failed RAMs), a FX 5800 Ultra (failed GPU), and a WD 1200 hard drive (just failed). I had been OC the video cards with inadequate cooling.

I just dont see how your framerate is so low with medium detail. I really wanted to get a new video card before doom 3 came out but this card has proven its self and I think I can hold out until I go PCI express.

Your 5700 is performing better than his because your at 800X600...he already said he was playing at 1024X768...which taxes the gpu alot more....@ 800X600 your cpu is doing most of the work and of course ur scores will be higher.

The 5800 is a great card really. The drivers have matured enough to make it better than the 9700 Pro (when ps2.0 isnt enabled heh) just ashame it was so loud and warm. I used to have one, I upgraded to a 5900nu...there was only a 2fps gain with the 5900nu-but it ran cooler and was much quieter....so essentially when u base it on performance u can say a 5800 ultra is basically a 5900nu.

BTW...5800U looks pretty strong in the (possibly)upcomming HL2 engine:



Keep in mind that there will certainly be an optimized driver released for this application as it's release date becomes more clear...

Thanks dude. Im the same way in real life. My whole theory on life is that its too damn short to waste being serious. I'd rather laugh and have fun everyday rather than take everything serious. I enjoy everyday because of it
