GTX 280 will be here monday!!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Woot i was number 35 on the step up.. this new Velociraptor is working like a charm also.. I had a couple questions.. 3dmark Vantage comes with the registration of the GTX 280 is Vantage the new version of 3dmark? Like newer than 06?

Also I had Crysis installed on my old harddrive before upgrading to Velociraptor.. I purchased it online and now I do not have it, is there anyway for me to download it again or what do I do? Rep for someone who can help me out.

Sweet, my 4870 will be here on Monday too, freakin holidays....and yes, Vantage is the DX10 benchmark from the same people who made 3DMark06...not sure about your Crysis problem though.

Vantage of the 3dmark06 for vista. It is a much heavier test. When you get your 280 make sure to install the latest nvidia drivers:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winvist...7.41_whql.html

and the latest physics drivers:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_8.06.12_whql.html

Then you can run vantage once, I believe for free. And if you pay you can run it an unlimited amount of times.

It only runs on Vista.


As for Crysis, contact who you downloaded it from and ask them how to do it. I'm sure you can redownload it.


Good luck!

make sure to find a receipt or product key if it was sent to your email.. makes it a lot easier to redownload.

edit : I'm guessing you purchased the game from the EA website. You should have received an email with info on your purchase.

Shows us some numbers once you get it!...Congrats on the new card!
post #7 of 11
Yeah, definitely want to see how it performs. And if you're not to worries it's a new card, I'd personally like to know how well it overclocks.
Have fun with it!

This thing is like putting a turbine engine on a motorcycle, it's really something. Have fun OC'ing it!
I don't have advanced system cooling as of yet, but I was still able to decently OC that baby, number on my page.

If your still waiting on that card, in the mean time, change all your games graphic settings to full with full AA. When you boot them up with your new card, they will likely run faster then they did before

What's wrong with that? They will run most games out now and in the future on max settings - I'd stick with Sli Gt's / GTSs anyway
