That said, about the only bad thing I can see at the moment is the OCing potential. The driver/bios issues are mostly for EVGA cards (to an extent but it's a long story, I've not even noticed anything with my asus one). Single display performance is excellent and Nvidia has better support for newer games and usually fixes stuff fairly quickly (compare nvidia DA2 problems to AMD crysis 2 problems for example. DA2 got fixed in no time and crysis 2 still has some problems with amd.)

Also with a 6990 you're pretty much screwed with the horrible noise the fan makes unless you spend a 100+ more dollars on a waterblock. Assuming you already had a loop and enough rad to support it.

/rant, got carried away.

OT: lately I've been encountering a weird problem. Some of my friends who game on a PC seem to be kind of hating BF3 because they think they can't max the game and according to them it makes the game bad or unplayable. I've tried to explain that it'll still look really good on lesser settings but I just keep getting the same line over and over again: 'If I can't max it I'm not getting my money's worth' Argh, so annoying. Since when has scalability across different levels of HW been a bad thing? It's not as if you would be getting less out of a game if someone else can kick up the GFX a notch more...

sigh.
Rofl exactly I love how in BC2 high is same as medium... but medium gives ya way more FPS.. all of us will be able to enjoy the game me thinks ;d

about 6990 I dont mind the noise what I mean is that I will have to put it under water anyway so .. no noise still, 6990 = 2GB pure card while 590 is 1.5

Nice! Enjoy the card.

I actually thought about trading for a pair of GTX570's, but I then realized the 6970's are just as good or slightly better at stock, and I would lose some cash too, so I am keeping my lovely 6970's.

I am going to sleep now, I need to wake up early to take the dog to the veterinary, but we should definitely play some tomorrow.

2 days old is old tech haha
Really thogh, no one should be buying the old 570s anymore with their low mem and poor VRMs. They're pretty nice now.
post #3536 of 52874
I'm starting to think with the next gen if cards there will be alot more VRam on board, with the amount of people jumping on the Eyefinty/NVSurround bandwagon, there is definitely demand for it.

The benchmarks/beta/requirements can't be released soon enough. I wanna know what kind of beast will be required to run this

Well, I JUST bought a 1.25GB 570. I sold my 4870X2 for $250, and got the 570 for $330 after rebate. The 2.5GB 570 goes for a bit more and I didn't want to spend more out of pocket. It doesn't bother me knowing that a 2.5GB 570 is out that costs $400. When I feel the itch to upgrade, I'll be able to sell my 570 just like I sold my 4870X2 lol, or add a second 570.
