Default Radeons kick butt in Warhammer Online!

This is nice. I was considering getting rid of my 4850 for a GTX260 until I seen this.

This game doesn't stress a 8800gts. You don't need the best and newest card for this game.

Read the first paragraph CaptnNubing!

I tried my 8800GTS with it and wasn't near as happy with the performance as with my current 4850. It was acceptable, but just slower across the board. I average around 60-80 or so now. With the 8800, I averaged about 40-60. Both at 1680x1050 4xAA 8xAF.

I did read it. My point is I have a 8800gts and it runs fine and you don't need the newest card for this game because it doesn't stress good equipment from the last generation.

I was basically dismissing the whole of your thread.

with higher settings, keep battles with alot of people can really bring my 8800GT to its knees.
so when going into a longer RVR fight over a keep I some times set the game to the "Fastest Framerate" setting.

I dunno. In R3Ds WAR thread it seemed like a lot of the dudes over there were having issues with this game using Radeons. I may be wrong but that's just what pops in to my head when reading this thread.

I run the game ok with a 8800 GTS 512 at 1920x1200, 2xaa and 8xaf. 4x aa or plus and forget about it. Also 16xaf is doable but not as smooth as I want it so I went at 8x. I do however love eye candy so it's killing my I can't eun at max on these two settings.

I don;t want to upgrade though becasue of the **** economy. Must.......resist.......reeesissstt.

Well, maybe in a true consumerbased economy. Unfortunally ours is all about fraud and assrapeing the low to middle class. So, instead of living with a bit of luxury, I live little more frugal.

So yes, at this time I'm a bad little consumer. I'm greedy, hording my own money I guess. :/ Maybe the consumer police will come and beat me in to spending submission.
