I bought some 2900s for e-peen purposes...but I kept the 1950 pro for Folding and general use: so quiet. After I LCed the HD3870X2s I was completely satisfied...got rid of the case heat and the noise and no I really think they are perfect.

I have the third HD3870X2 in the Family HTPC rig and it's seriously loud (Folding GPU2) and hot and eventually I plan to LC that Rig. It runs the 52" LCD for gaming and theatre and does more than I need.

I like new hardware: but just don't have the fascination with graphics that I do with HDDs, SSDs and Fast RAM. I'm a Bandwidth Junky
How come you haven't ordered any VelociRaptors for your RAID card then?

out of the need to afford electricity, i've unfortunately gone back to a 2x 2600XT crossfire... isnt too bad with a quad core processor though highly recommend it for midrange/low wattage gamers...

I love ATI

My very first GPU as an "enthusiast" was an ATI X800 XL that I got when I was about 13-14 (close to 18 now) That card is what got me into tinkering on computers and I will love it forever. I flashed it with a x850XT platinum bios (unlocked pipes and upped clocks) and I remember being enthralled at the possibility of turning a $250 card into a $500 card and thus I became addicted to enthusiast computing.

That card could be considered a main reason why I have decided to major in computer engineering in college, It honestly changed my life.

A friend of mine stepped on it, it was in a static proof bag on the floor. I heard a crunch and the zalman cooler on it was bent, I took the cooler off and the die looked fine but I never bothered to try it out again.

It currently holds a prominent display right next to my computer and shall stay there forever.

One 2600XT is a REALLY nice card for the price. Mine performs around the same as an X1950pro/XT. 2 Put together should be around the performance of a 2900GT, and comming close to the 2900XT.

In my view it moves closer to the performance of a 3870, that being what i've recessed from.

And, considering going originally from 2x2600XT to 1x3870 and back to two 2600XT's, I have felt the need to turn a few settings up on both occasions (gone from dual to quad core in the same timeframe soon after 3870...)

I'll actually be really interested to see what the 4-series is going to offer in 600 range, because the 55nm shrink to the 3650 didnt look that good on paper compared to my current GPU setup (single and double), and there WASNT A 3670!!! although to some, the 3850 was considered to have filled that gap

considering the 2600s are DX10 secure (although 10.1 tempting for retentive "I WANNA BE FUTUREPROOF:swearing:" reasons) i may just get a third 512mb 2600XT, it'd have to be a single-slot this time, gotta have hauppauge!!!!

I switched from an 8800GTX to first one 3870X2 TOP and now two for quad-fire performance.

ASUS seem to have so much fun making GPU's

are they stoned electricians and engineers?

"what shall we make this week??"
"A Triple 3850?"
"Yes, and it can immediately rival the new 3870X2 top we made last week..."
