a FX 5800U is faster than a 9600XT in everything but DX9.....

eBay.

Then I can actually AFFORD a 6800!!

(As nobody seems to want to buy the card in my sig )

I'll bump for that....but a perhaps serious point, here.

Could the admins, when they close the thread to pick a winner....not only remove the obvious duplicate entries, but ALSO all entries from duplicate IP addresses?

Wouldn't want to see members 'cheating' by reg'ing a couple different email addresses to themselves and entering once for each.

If I win I will give it to my mate who normally gets my hand me downs. When I went to a GF4 4400 he got my old GF2 MX .. I think he is still using it !

I told him about Far Cry the other day now he wants to play that .. probably his MX will be lacking somewhat

Regards

Andy

Well, the 5800 would run better than my 5600, although not a huge step, but still a step in the right direction.
I owned a MSI 5600 before I got my PNY 5800 Ultra and it was a very huge step..


As for why I want another one? Its still a nice card and isn't leaps and bounds faster than my 9800Pro aside of newer DX9 games, and I still find nvidia drivers way more stable and bug free. PLus, its a collectors item

Sure it seems unfair, but we were all first time "noob" posters at one time, besides, it might encourage some to participate more.

I have to say there are very few cards I wouldn't want for free, I think less people would be wanting a 5800U if they had to swap their 5900/9800 for it. I wouldn't run one myself in my main PC as the noise just gets on my nerves, even the non-ultra cooler has an irritating whine.
