3870 question. - Page 2

post #11 of 30
i play at 1024x768 resolution and the card can put up with high settings and a decent amount of AA and AF.8XMSAA on the orange box works very smoothly and i have AA all the way up in almost all games.

If you are going to be playing COD4 (seems to be the most intensive game on the list) then a Nvidia GPU is better. However, at 1024x768 it doesn't really matter!

Im trying to stay away from the 8800 series. The game I play "Red Orchestra" has a stuttering issue with nvidia cards and they cant seem to find a fix for it. So the ATI card should be good enough for me. Im coming from a 7600gt so Im sure thats a huge upgrade right?

Enormous upgrade, you won't be disappointed.

Major upgrade and when you get a larger resolution it won't fail you there either. Good choice on the ATI upgrade!

GREAT card...not good! I like mine. I play mostly CoD4 and have it maxed out on 1440x900 WS with no problems. I'll be ordering my second card at the end of the month myself.

You may want to invest in an after market HS&F, too, if you got the extra cash.

I'm currently using the Zalman VF-1000LD and temps are a nice drop from stock. I've also heard the Thermalright's are pretty good keeping the temps down, but those just look like they take up as much room as the stock fans.

Hope you enjoy the card when you get it and helps with your gaming!
