Default Re: Woot! 5800U arrives!

The problem with video card forums in general is you get these guys discussing little differences in cards like they actually meant something, like moving from the ghetto to a rich suburb.
Then if you actually take the time to try different cards, you find out you don't even notice the differences in IQ unless you start taking screenshots, and the differences in framerates unless you have the counter on.

Anyway, played some GTA Vice City, again didn't notice the difference.

BTW Jakup, I don't have to "defend" anything. I can use whatever card I want.

I'm liking the 5800 Ultra so far. I suppose if I didn't have a job and had to pick a card for 2004 I'd take the 9800Pro over it, but it's a fun card to play with.
Don't fret- I'll buy a card soon enough that will seem like a big upgrade to you.

It's natural to be proud of your new card when you get it, no matter what kind it is, and starting a thread about it?...most of us do. If only he hadnt taken a pot-shot at ATi when he made his original post about how happy he was that his new card had arrived. He set the stage for a flame fest when he did that....

There was no pot-shot. He made an effort to discourage any of the banter that is often thrown @ nv30 owners.

There are reasons to be proud of having (or even chasing after) an nv30. There was a time (a little too late in its career, but at least there was a completely noticeable improvement) when R200 went through the same thing, but things were corrected, and (maybe at a later than planned) the card went through a "this card is a great deal for the money, and offers the performance I'm looking for." period...

Well, the nv30 is also going through that period, and will for the next few months to a year (IMO R8500/9100's are STILL great deals for the money, sittin right between GF3ti and Gf4ti4200)...

...

It's the fastest 128 bit memory interface equipped card that will ever exist. (unless there's some PCX 5700UberU that ekes past it)

It's the first DDR2 equipped card...

It overclocks quite nicely.

I do believe that ALL nv30's were built with VERY tight mfg tolerances... Can't say the same about other cards.

...

New drivers have been very kind to nv30. It's still worth a look, and is now positively competitive with 9700NP/9700P/9800NP/FX5900SE in many more aspects than during it's introductory phase...

Rollo, I hope you enjoy the card. I'm planning on trying one out soon as well. But first, I'm gonna play with the R9700 @ pro speeds and see how I enjoy it...

Wow... this guy can't be serious... why the hell would you want to downgrade from a 9800 Pro to a complete POS-crap that is the 5800 Ultra? I owned one of these cards before Jakup did... and believe you me, it's a piece of total trash. That was back when I was an Nvidia fan, but after that crap-pile, I've been ATi ever since.

I had that card, and the very next day I sold it to a co-worker, and proceeded to buy a 6-month old (at the time) 9700PRO which comletely demolished the trashy 5800 Ultra.

Sorry dude, but you've been n00b'ed under your own assumptions.

Oh well, if it makes you happy, enjoy that piece of trash, but don't come on here telling us about how it's better than a 9800PRO when in fact it's a total piece of donkeychu compared to it.

wow.. you have some issues you need to deal with heh...

btw, he never said it was better than a 9800pro, so you don't have to feel like you holy piece of computer hardware needs to be saved from an attack.

No I made a thread about getting a 5800 Deluxe, that turned out to be DOA.

I don't have retail Far Cry Cainam, don't like it enough to get it from what I've seen.
