i like the flowfx as well... its good because it dumps all the super hot air out of the case... 108F degree air to be exact... i dont want that drifting into my cpu

it might be that you guys are using a media player or software that wants to do a fancy visualizations (the gay color spasms during music play) or Quicktime , both draw on DirectDraw and maybe Direct3D.

Hey, i did a little benchmark session of all the AA modes for the FX and made a bar graph out of it. Thought you guys might be interested.

Yep, im not sure whats going on there but 16x definatley gives better results than 8x...

I read though 16x is more like 12x but still.

Good idea on the thread.

There are few of us 5800 ultra owners it seems.
Or 5800 owners in general.

I'll post my scores tonight after I install this beast.
I feel lucky to have found an Ultra.

ANy of u guys using the Omega drivers?
There 43.45's.

R the 51's any better. Also is the fan still messed up in the 51's?

I use nive 3d screen savers all the time to show of my rig.
I need the fan to work.

i use the 51's i dunno about the screensaver bug though.... and i suggest using the dawn demo to show off your card... very nice indeed

or better yet... a recently leaked demo of a certain game... i think you know what im talking about runs crystal smooth on my system (most of the time)
