Nategr8ns, for your CPU just go with the same stress testing applications we ran here (OCCT, Orthos, S&M, Prime ect). For your video card, try out Furmark or ATITool. In ATITool there is a function called, "3DView". That works quite well for warming up the video card. I think ATITool slightly stresses the processor but not as much as OCCT/Orthos ect.

Good luck

thanks thinker.
I have to wait until I find drivers now. I think the Video card may be dying though:
when I changed the resolution (without drivers) the screen got all weird. There was a band of three desktops (each 640x480) across the top of the screen which was being changed to 1024x768. I also got some pretty bad artifacts. Though when I hit the power button on the case, Windows shut down normally.

Not sure if this was caused by lack of drivers or GPU instability.

Nategr8ns, artifacts may indicate a faulty/failing video card. In my experience overheating of a video card usually causes artifacting but also excessive overclocking can cause that. Have you pulled the card out and taken a look at the capacitors? Are they bulged/leaking? Do you have another video card to test with?

Good luck

I don't see any bulges or breaks, but I just cleaned out the heatsink of dust and reapplied thermal paste. The old stuff was custy, and the cooler has a tendency to rock back and forth because of having only two mounting holes. It still rocks, but its held down pretty tight on the die (from what I can tell) and the fan doesn't speed up. I still don't have drivers on it so I can't test temps.

Nate, do you need help finding drivers? What kind of card is it? Are you sure you don't have an extra video card to test with?

Good luck

I'm an old time Gundam/Macross/Transformers fan.

I watched all of those when I was very young. So what they did to that movie was terrible.

Most of it could have been forgiven if they had just tried to stick to the original idea of the Transformers hiding from humans. And Spike being a mechanics son still.

But it had a constant lack of real substance to it. The plot was way to linear. And most "plot progressions" were forced for no other reason than "lets see how we can screw with the kid now."

And for that matter, I couldn't even come close to licking Shila as Spike. He was completely un-believable to me.

But again, I could have probably looked past most of this if they kept the original idea of "Transformers: Robots In Disguise," along with a few of the older plot elements. And maybe changed Shila. Had a different actor for him. He's just "not spike" to me. Not even as the new version of him.

I am always curious about this, as most of the time there tends not to be much difference.
But as I've come to find out people do not see the same (obviously). When you take eye size, shape, color blindness, field of view, etc. into consideration, the way one person sees something is not the same as the way others see the same thing.
Coincidentally we were studying the eye today in my anatomy class. Eyesight, just like IQ, is inherited and the ability of someones eye to discern certain things greatly differs from person to person. And just like someone may be born with an IQ of 200, some peoples eyesight is so sharp that they'll be able to see the threads on a baseball moving 100MPH or be able to identify an object flashed @ 1/220th of a second.
So basically everything is subjective.

Really I think I was just blown away by the Transformers movie on blu-ray. I'm guessing since the movie was filmed digitally that is why? It looks amazing man...

Thanks for the helpful post.
Perhaps not, at a higher refresh rate the image maybe more crisp and your eyesight is good enough to pick that up.

Yeah I watched the old school Transformers too, I was pretty disappointed with the movie as well. I was like where the hell is soundwave??!?!? He had the coolest voice and was the most conniving of the decepticons, they could've made a modern version of him. And I really didn't like the fact that Optimus prime was depicted as such a wuss.
I'll more than likely see the new one too, however. Maybe they'll redeem themselves?


ON TOPIC: Well guys I just bought another XFX 4870 XXX . Found on a deal on TD that I couldn't pass up. So when it gets here I'll do some benchs with my CFX3200 and see how they do. I know my opty will bottleneck them like crazy but I got these more for my future AM3 build so they probably won't live on the CFX for too long. I'm hoping to get at least somewhat of a boost from having 2 cards. Maybe Crysis @ 50FPS?

Tator, but it's Hollywood

Shoot when does an actual movie follow a book/tv series? I don't think it ever does. Your above post reminds me of my own comments that I had on the recently released Terminator movie

Sorry guys for going OT!
