That's the truth and since the truth is ineluctable then resignation is the key to keeping your blood pressure normal

Hopefully the NV35 or maybe the new dets will sort out some issues

If not, then nvidia will have to work very hard to overcome its self imposed speed bumps.

And that is only a good thing

When the purpose of a thread is to compare products then sure, comparison is good. If the purpose of the thread is to "nail" the gfFX then again, post away. When the thread is supposed to be about a user sharing his personal experience about his card, there is absolutely no reason why people should bring bashing into it.

I don't remember if it was in this thread or not, but there was one user who bought a gfFX5800Ultra after owning a r9700Pro. One of the first comments was something like "what were you thinking."

There are times when bashing the gfFX makes sense, and there are times when it doesn't. Same goes for ATI. Someone buys an ATI card and some nvidiot posts "ATI sux0rs." WTF? That adds nothing to the discussion, and just turns a perfectly good thread into a flamefest.

I'm seeing more and more flamefests and quite frankly I'm not too happy about it. You can debate or even argue without resorting to constant use of sarcasm or personal insults. It's really not that hard.

And then there are those people who ALWAYS point out the shortcomings of a card, and make blanket statements like "this card sucks. You can't possibly be happy with it."

I am not flaming Bk for purchasing his FX, if you would read this thread it would become clear to you.

"When the purpose of a thread is to compare products then sure, comparison is good. If the purpose of the thread is to "nail" the gfFX then again, post away."

I am actually the one asking for benchmarks of BK's FX, not you.

If you can deny that the FX is getting licked in the benchmarks with af and AA then post it, if not then don't thrash on my posts which are more than efficacious.

One more thing stealth

"I'm seeing more and more flamefests and quite frankly I'm not too happy about it. You can debate or even argue without resorting to constant use of sarcasm or personal insults. It's really not that hard."

You are implying that I did this. I didn't. If you will look up the latest benchmarks you will find what I said is true. I did not post anything in this thread using sarcasm or personal insults (ad hominem) to validate my claims. Go check.

So, I don't appreciate the barbed comments in this thread, if YOU want to begin the anti sarcasm and anti ad hominem then more power to you, as it stands you are the one corrected, not me.

rogo
non of those sorry.
My 2 newest are Unreal 2 and UT2003.
I'm going to get cell splinter.

I like FPS games like Quake and Unreal the best.
I really need to buy some new games.
Do you like Neverwinter nights?

Do you have codecreatures demo?
If not grab it here.

Run it at 1024 with NO AA or AF and post your score.
I've got to take my twin 3 year old boys to eat so I'll post my score when I get back.

Neverwinter Nights is amazing, but I don't have the time right now to play it.

I'm in a FB squad that flys full real and am having to study maps and map coordinate orientation using compass so it's taking most of my time when I don't work

I have a track I use to bench my squads hardware. If you enjoy flying then pick it up

Looking to get a TackIR unit soon too

Rogozhin,

Never once did I single you out as one of the people I was talking about. Nor did I imply that I was talking about you. You asked what was wrong with attacking the gfFX and I gave you a perfectly valid answer.

And I never said YOU were attacking it either.

NVidia have the option of texture sharpening

its a matter of preferences but for for me the Nvidia cards have better IQ .
Let me guess, you like DV too don't you?

I never once asked what was wrong with attacking the FX. I stated that the FX was getting "nailed" in its aa and af reviews.

Then you said this.

" If the purpose of the thread is to "nail" the gfFX then again, post away."

So

I assumed this was directed at me since you quoted my post.

If not I stand corrected. If you did then shame on you
