Good screensaver for 8600GTS :)

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi, guys. I'm looking for a free screen saver that will utilize some or many of the capabilities of my EVGA 8600GTS OC. For example, I just downloaded this one screen saver that's just a program that runs called Amazing Bubbles 3D. That made me go "whoa". It required Pixel Shader 1.4 support or some version like that.

But I have this feeling that there's something far more impressive out there to be downloaded. Perhaps something that looks quite real. Now that would be cool.


Thank you for your help!

So you want a screensave to stress your card and keep it toasty warm enough to brew some tea while your not at your computer?

hairy cube, huh? hehehe I just downloaded this really cheesy one called WaterCube3d. It also serves as a benchmarking tool if you press "b". It looks kinda cool, I guess.

But when I look at the google search results for "free screensaver", and look for 3D ones, they all seem like they might either be cheesy, or just not impressive enough (which I guess is the same thing). I mean, I remember that Aquarium screen saver back when Windows XP first came out, and everyone was so amazed by it. I want something like that for today.

Like when you guys play Crysis, you're just blown away by the realism and how amazing your video card is. Well, I want something like that in a screensaver where I can just be amazed by how real it looks.

But if I don't find anything that can show me how good my video card is, then that's okay. In due time.

Well, I used a different Google Search, and tried "nvidia screensaver", and now I'm trying "geforce screensaver", and I'm coming up with better results. I just figured I'd mention this just in case anyone wants what I want.
