Did they cancel your order? Someone said they had 37 open orders, the rest were cancelled or something. I fixed my orders problem and got this

does it feels smooth playing at those settings .. where you shoot at the first few zombies in first level?

the settings i plan to play is 1600x1200 8xAF.. and if performance is good enough there use a little of AA ..

Well.. not really.. it dips into the teens alot.. for the most part it plays at about 30fps... but occasionally it dips into the teens. Im sure it will be all worked out since its just an alpha

Angry Re: My 6800 Ultra

No Draxus, they didn't cancel my order yet. I e-mailed them last night because as other people said- this sounds alot like the gateway sham. This is really errisponsible of compusa, I called twice to confirm that they had them in stock and they said they did, and now they e-mail me saying something to the effect of-- cards, what stinkin cards, we aint got no stinking cards. I'm really mad!!

The 2 images are comparable, but the bottom one looks better to me, especially the specular aspect of the image, also the weapon looks better to me, not to mention the AA quality.

Thats the same basic email I got the yesterday(6/7). So yeah, my order is still open and that DOESNT mean its bogus like someone said. However, it also doesnt mean they will be shipping them soon either. ANd no I havent gotten any email cancelling my order or telling me of any problems with payment.

Yes that is indeed the very meaning of bogus/false. When you call compusa twice noless and they tell you that they have the product in stock( see false or bogus above) and don't actually have them.. thats very frustrating. If they would have just been honest with us that would have been great, and I didn't even get a reatch around...sshheeheheez.
