I was pumped when I found the deal. I got the BFG OCX edition. and it was $286, with tax so $300.

I have a ship date of 4/10/09 at the latest, but he said mine was in stock so maybe faster. it not like it is a computer were they have to build it, all they have to do is pull it off the shelf and ship it, so I am hoping for sooner. But why cancel the one's on Newegg, are like 80 bucks more and then you get the rebate, the OCX is like 100 bucks more, plus you can return it 21 days you get it and say it was not comptable with system when sales rep said it should, and prob not be charged a restock fee and then just get a new card. If I do not like it I am returning it and getting a 295 or a 4870x2 or a 4890 not sure yet, but I think I will like it a lot.

That's only meant for those that do have the game. Plus you can download the demo for free.


EDIT: Just updated the links. Posted link to download the Crysis Demo.

Thanks Open I will be looking forward, I will go back and compare those to your 4850 x2 benchies and see how this stacks up against it. And I will do the same also. From BitTech.com http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/gra...-285-ocx-1gb/1

This card runs close to or above the 4850 x2 just a tad, very close and it is 1 gpu, so SLI these 2 and OMG, it would fly. That is why I got it, since I can SLI these and get great performance a few months from now. I was gonna do another 4850x2 or a 4870 x2, but then if I get another, I do not want 4 GPUs... It would be messy and drivers are just not close yet to doing a 4gpu solution.

If I find the link I once saw a vid of someone running three GTX285's in tri-SLI and in Crysis they were getting 60 FPS at 2560x1600 and 16xQ AA.

By the way, +rep for finding this review.


EDIT: Didn't find the exact video but one like it. Enjoy!

I'd like to apologize ahead of time if something is not working on the original post for anyone. I will be updating this thread constantly tonight so there may be moments where something may be offline. I will keep an eye on it.

I like the video. That speed is nice and it looks fluid which is the best, no stutters. I can not say that now. I love playing Crysis Wars, which is why I got this card also, it seems to do much better than the 4850 x2 in Crysis. My 4850x2 was getting around 25 FPS at 1080p x4AA and it was sometimes bad, like 12 fps in areas
I hope to see some improvements will let you all know.
