Thumbs down Re: Why buy a 470???

No difference, low to mid 30's. This is Bull****! How can u double the card, quad the bandwidth, add to the memory and still be running at the 8800GTX level. Is this all because of DX11??????

I'm not sure it's a flaw - as many mobos have 8/8 in SLI.

This has to be a directX issue. Can I go back to DX 10?

Sure, open up the Settings.ini in your Documents\BFBC2 folder and change the 11 to 10.

I get that when just on the desktop. It shows pci-e 2.0 for about 20 secs. then reverts to pci-e 16x dropping the 2.0. This is for both cards and I am using 7 pci-e slot motherboard with the video cards in the 16x only slots (blue). So, I know they are pci-e 2.0 16x. Nvidia control panel confirms this. But then when I had my p6x58d mb I got 16x from both of my gtx 480's with a gt240 physx card showing 8x. That's 40 pci-e lanes and the p6x58d only has 36 lanes! My p6t7 ws supercomputer has 64 pci-e lanes (with two nf200 chips on it to give the other 28 lanes plus 36 from the x58 chipset). So I don't trust nvidia control panel in that matter.

Default DX11 SUCKS!!

It's official DX11 sucks! Loaded 10 times faster and I was running in the 50's for FPS instead of low 30's!!

It actually only sucks for BFBC2, all the other DX11 games actually use the features that makes DX11 worth having. All BFBC2 adds is softer shadows and between that and the loading bug it's not worth using.
