Are you seriously immature enough to not be able to discuss computers without using words like "fight back" and "I win"
Dude, you got serious problems if you think that a discussion is "discrediting you." And yes, you did deny that they failed. That's why I even asked you to confirm your position before I proved my statement wasn't "misrepresenting facts." Do you need me to quote it? I don't see the need,but if you feel differently, I can easily do it.
Coming from the person that challenged me to a battle of intellect in PMs...
Just accept the fact you were wrong and leave me a lone, ok? You have no supporters.
I'm sorry you find being called dumb, deaf, and blind a childish flame, guess you need to do a little more reading. It's a relatively common quote used to show unfounded loyality. And I still believe you have loyalty to ATi because you continue this discussion after not only being proven your point was wrong (or irrelavent I guess I should say), but then proving yourself wrong.
You were presenting your information as fact without any support. I call that misrepresenting the facts. That's like you going out and saying a 6200 512MB is faster than a 7800GTX 256MB. Someone who isn't so much in the know as us may believe you because it's a pretty common misconception that video card RAM is the main basis of performance.

The X800 and X850 are very similiar hardware-wise. The X850 is just a tweaked X800 to make it a little faster. Kinda like a 9700 and a 9800.
Well I'm sure you can track down some screenshots comparing new games, but I don't think the issue of SM3.0 exists between them there because I don't know if BF2 uses it or not (totally clueless on CoD2 as well, sorry).
Nugget, I'm sorry, but if you have any more questions, just go ahead and start a new thread. This one needs to be closed, it's lost any and all point. Me and Sccr will just stay out of your new one
