Are you still using the 60.85?


Also, for anyone who installed the 61.12: I installed them and it didn't add an add/remove entry to remove them. What's the best way to get rid of them so I can try others?

When I can get a GT or X800Pro for 399 or less
I'll be buying a new card myself.
Having to use a GF3 after having a 9800Pro-256 and 5950 is the pits.
VisionTek Xtasy X800 PRO for $399 in stock at Outpost.com. Just ordered mines, has been processed and will ship (hopefully tonite) or Monday. Total....$413....

The Thief 3 demo runs like crap on my X800 Pro (AMDFX-53 CPU) system - I am 99% sure its because the game is a ****ty port.

It runs like **** on the Xbox too. ION Storm really sucks now. They RUINED Deus Ex, now they have destroyed Thief too. Great.

If they took the Doom 3 approach by having the game coded separately for the console then we would not have this problem I bet. Unfortunately they did not want to apply those kind of resources I suppose.

It is sad seeing as I can run the hell out of any game out right now including Far Cry yet this game runs like a dog.

I think both games will run fine on the new cards, with Doom 3 running a bit better on the Nvidia cards and Half Life 2 on the ATI cards, but I think the framerates will probably be a bit above those found in Far Cry from what I have read from people playing the leaks. The coding optimization in those games should be a lot better than in Thief 3 by far, and probably a bit better than Far Cry.
