Instead of spamming 3 posts in a row, use the multi-quote function - it's that little +" button next to the one that says quote. Use it on all the posts you want to quote, then use the actual quote button on the last one you want to use. It's there to prevent exactly what you're doing.

Saturnotaku you have been nothing but a ****ing smartass to me since I have been here and I have thus far ignored you but im getting a little fed up with your crappy attitude. Seriously, just dont reply to me anymore if you cant say something without being a **** about it.

For the record, my 4870 ran hot and noisy. I used the fan profile "trick" to set the fan at 40% and it was not only obnoxiously loud but ran considerably hotter than K007 reports, Crysis put it in the 80+C range, as did most games. Heck it idled at 45-50C and that's with the fan "trick". Now I also have an Antec case and 2 120mm fans which keep my rig nice and cool, so I'd have to call shens on the "mine dosen't go over 50C in Crysis after 2-3 hours of messing around in it. Fan is @ 35%. barely audible over " report.
The 4870 is no the be all, end all that some are trying to portray it as
If you like that card and it suits your needs, fine, buy one and run it but don't exaggerate to sell others on it

Thank you for being a faggot, i enjoyed that.

Edit: it's the 280 that can sometimes outperform the X2, company of heroes being a prime example, the x2 cant handle that game for ****.

But we are talking about the 1gb Single GPU 4870

Nothing Rollo has said is incorrect, these are real issues which users should be considering, yes they effect some users more then others, for users to attack him personally and turn this into another pathetic ATI vs. nvidia debate is just uncalled for unnecessary.

But that aside, yea it is the fastest single card choice, it just fails in the heat/cost department...at least the cost is good.

Thats not as much of the issue rather than the fact that rollo never has anything to say unless its something negative about ATI. I mean come on, give credit where credit is due. The HD 4870 series is a great comback for ATI considering how underwhelming the 2900 cards were.

These cards scale great with AA even better than Nvidia while offering great performance at a great price. These are things that you will never hear out of rollo's mouth, the only time he ever rears his ugly head is when its to say something negative about ATI.

People like rollo are not what I would call a true enthusiast but rather a Blind Fanboy and you guys that are supporting him like he is your Father or something fall under the same Blind Fanboy catagory.

The only time a GTX 280 will be outperforming a HD 4870X2 is when Crossfire isnt scaling and those issues are far and few in between.

Its really sad to see this place over run by jackasses the way that it has been lately.

No its more like Rollo is trolling Nvnews again. And FYI I have seen first hand how cool an HD 4870 can run with the fan set to 35%, your case must be a real cluster **** because its no where near as hot as what you report.
