OpenGL in some ways is kinda limited, you can use MSI Afterburner to know what kind of render the game engine is using but most of the time it will be DX...

Yes, i know the basic differences between the two. Most games are DX, We really need to move on from that. It sucks that we need to run Windows for most games..

Yes in some ways it sucks but we also need Windows cause its Windows that standardizes the communication between all our hardware and the programs we are trying to run on it, basicly its windows that let us run games with such a variety of system... If it werent for windows I prolly couldnt play a game which you could, even tho we have the same GPU setup, 6850 Crossfire...

Yeah, but we need a better OS. One made for gaming tongue.gif
Not just a general simple OS. If you follow, something for the power user i suppose. I don't know, having Windows makes PC's more boring in a way.

Thats basicly what a console is, a gaming OS with standardized hardware.
Easy for dev's to program for it that way

Basically yes, but a real gaming OS wouldn't be limit by standardized hardware.
Windows is the limit because all the legacy and old thing in it. All the library to run thing, it's a really fragmented OS.
And, it's proprietary.

I like windows, it's nice for web browsing and network sharing stuff etc. But it's just not really good for gaming, it'd be nice even if explorer.exe was able to shutdown and terminate all the extra un-needed processes' and services while a game is open.

In a way yes, but i mean still a computer, Still as much fun to create as they are now. I find it a good thing that no one's PC's the same, it make it more Interesting i guess (well for me). I think xbox'es and PS3's are stupid because of this, it's just Sony and Microsoft putting their branding over everything. There are no real third party companies either, which just gives M$ and Sony all the more market share.

And M$ have stopped making PC games, they're devoted to 360/the new xbox now. Which means PC gaming is almost over...

Sad that they stopped making games for PC since they actualy did some cool games... Im so tempted buy a 2600k with a Gene Z & 7950... I love my CPU but Im fed up with my GPU's. Tired of spending day and nights trying drivers, seeing benchmark scores with crossfired enabled giving lower scores when compared to my GPU1 solo scores, Putting GPU1 working alone and overclocking it, checking temps and everything shows up perfect. Putting GPU2 working alone benchmarking, overclocking, benchmarking again and checking its temps all the time just to realize that both GPU's are in perfect condition Yet with crossfire enabled I get 100% usage on both cards... But I cant overclock them with crossfire cause they will artifact at 55ºC with 900Mhz core. And they working alone are stable at 1Ghz Core. I really regret spending the money on crossfire.

I know it's sad.. No more age of empires of Flight Sims!

I actually have the same problem, i don't know what each card will OC to. But they will artifact no matter what voltage i put through them. It's exactly 900mhz core too (or at least close to it). Mine run about 20c hotter then that too.

Yes, i wish i kept my 6870 and got a 2500k and a Asrock Extreme3 Gen3 instead.. It was $120 more. :s
