Well, I used to have the what I believe was near the best HD2900XT ever made, the model with 1gb of GDDR4. Compared to the 8800 GTS 512 (as you already know essentially the same card as the GTS 250) it was kind of horrible.
Don't get me wrong, it was a powerful enough card in its own right, and even beat my G92 (which was overclocked to GTS 250 performance levels) in TES:Oblivion. But in just about every other game it was no contest.
What I don't get is why you are limiting yourself to the GTS 250. Is it a price range thing? Having owned all the cards we're talking about I can firmly recommend picking up a 4870. You can get them used for not too much over $100 if you really shop around.
I mean , I do have a job , and can afford to buy it , but I do have other things I need to get.
I can't be spending a whole whack on it ya know.
After a bit of testing, I've found my card can't play 1280x1024 with everything on high without lagging , I can't have any AA at all , otherwise I get big green pixels all over the screen.
I have to have it at 1024 by 768 on high , no AA
btw , at that last res , I get 25ish FPS
This is Crysis btw.
Also , I have someone who's gonna me PM me details for shipping to canada on a visiontek 4870 , but I think it might end up being a bit too pricey -_-
Also , I never thought of updating my drivers ?
I just put in the disc that came with it.
