Thre is no point in upgrading graphics anymore. - Page 9

post #81 of 92
The Witcher 2 destroys my computer....

And I just upgraded my graphics

Probably has something to do with my ancient CPU though.

There's LOTS of games out right now that give my (pretty dang powerful) rig a run for it's money maxed out in 1920x1200. Metro2033, Witcher 2, Just Cause 2, Stalker CS/CoP, Crysis 2 (although I don't have that game), Crysis/WH, GTAIV, ArmA2 ... hell, even Pirates of Black Cove maxed out is maxing my gpu usage out to stay at a steady 50fps.

Not to mention there's a number of games where I've played their equivalents on xbox 360 and they look like absolute garbage in comparison (borderlands, AC2, JC2, to name a few) to how they look on my PC. And my xbox is hooked up to my monitor, not some crappy TV.

If you're gaming at 720p resolution, yeah, you don't need much in the way of gfx power. But you NEED the higher end gear if you want to play the newest stuff maxed out in DX11 at high resolutions. Period.

I've read several of the papers, and I have written a couple myself(least helped). Folding@home has shown no promise and no useful knowledge in curing any of these problems. It will be atleast 20 years before it does something good.

OK, so with folding we can have something useful in 20 years. Without folding we would have nothing in 20 years (using your own logic). Frankly, I'm 28 now, in 20 years I'll be 48 and just starting to worry about cancer (for myself anyway). I'd rather help toward a cure that may take 20 years to get to then do nothing. I've lost too many loved ones and am watching too many others right now to not be involved. It may not do any good now, but at least there are people working on it, at least people in the FAH forums are helping to do somthing.

You have the gene and yet you balk at something that may help you in the future because you don't understand it? I don't claim to understand even the slightest, but I know what Stanford is working toward, I respect it, I like that they are trying to do and I'll support in any and every way I can. Just like I do for the American Cancer Society and the Susan G. Koman Breast Cancer Foundation. I'm not a doctor or a scientist, so damnit, I'll help in any way can. But, hey, that's just me.

That isn't even close to a cure. A cure from folding at home(short of a godsend) for cancer or Alzheimer wouldn't be around till you are dead and gone(as most of us will be). It has no promise and is a laughing stock in Medical fields.

IMO even the highest end gpus are weak. It's nearly impossible to completely max some games in surround mode at 3x 1200p or 6x 1200p eyefinity. Rendering for 1 panel is easy, multipanel is where it's at or 1600p

Well, aren't you full of yourself Tell me Doc, what is your place in the medical field? I didn't know that they employed trolls

Tell me, what have you done of importance lately?
