Better scores with better hardware!

Question

Guest =TS=MAGNET

Received a new computer recently and its been awesome to game on! Check out some of these scores in BFBC2 I'm always getting! My ping is always in the low 70's sometimes 80-85 when other people are online in the house but overall very nice.

hey hey,

i still like the nvidea drivers more than the amd drivers, but that might just be personal taste. anyway, here is a good review for bf3 and gpu performance.

its in german, but you will see the scaling anyway.

according to that heres a review of video card power consumption, also in german, but again you will see the scaling.

what you see there is the total system watts usage during load. its always the same system, so you have a good view how much more power high end cards use.

maybe that helps you a bit to find the right card for you.

no more problems then ATI but the type of card is usually governed by the Main Board chipset. In your case using a ATI card will work better for you because your Board has a ATI 8 series chipset Nvidia will and obviously works but not as good as it could

 

 

Hey Cross,

When you are talking Main Board chipset, are you talking about the chipset on the Mother board?

And if so, how can I tell which card is best for me?

As you know I have had nothing but problems with my pile of crap (would work better as a door stop, over sized paper weight, good for nothing)

There's big difference. Intel supports both AMD and nVidia GFXs for ages now. Firstly, Intel was supporting mainly ATI CF for a while, but then they signed agreement with nVidia, and for few last years we can see equal support on intel chipsets for both SLI and CFX. Though AMD also signed similar agreement, so according to that starting since 990FX and further, you can make SLI on AMD chipsets either. But point is, 890X is old one, and it doesn't support nVidia SLI without LucidHydra chip (Crosshair IV Extreme), moreover it is well optimized by AMD for AMD. Maybe it was made in sake of some investments from nVidia, since last one do not make any chipsets at all. But for older generations of motherboards, not matter intel AMD/ATI, or even nVidia chipset is, considering possibility of multi-card installation, better stick to brand the chipset developed for. in this case AMD.

 

I didn't mean to troll and confuse, but I wanted to explain something. So far I may be wrong.

 

[spoil]P.S.: this year my VGA died 2 times. I even bought MSI 6670 1GB for for last money (100$). And I couldn't force to work it on my MB. So I gave it to my bro. And you know what? I was impressed how cool that little cards is. it can run most modern gams on medium-high, considering my bro has CPU even weaker than mine. So I no wonder of what can do 6870 or even senior hi-end cards can do. Though, I was always nerd in terms of graphics and was always looking for best cards in order to play on max settings, with max eye-candy. But this year I just gave up, and since I don't play almost, I have now more modest tastes and requirements for graphics. And I play all games on lowest settings, and I'm still alright.[/spoil]

 

Edit! Looks like nVidia make a good efforts. Their new 448 cores 560Ti is just toe in to to the 6970. Just closest rival.

I'm lost somebody get me a map  :o?  so whats the best graphics card I should have for my system?? HD 6990 looks really nice

 

In my opinion 6990 is too much for your rig. CPU won't handle it. And it is dual-gpu,so it means it will be incredibly hot and noisy. And it costs A LOT

Better get one 6870. It is simply best bang for the buck at this moment. If you need a bit more fps, get 6970 2GB version. It will be enough.

Sorry, Intel chipset/CPU and nVidia GPU fanboy here lol

 

I'm sure Cross and the Reaper know what they're talking about, and the 6870 is supposed to be a good card for gaming so you can't go wrong :)

 

Don't understand why peeps would buy an AMD board if it restricted them to only AMD GFX cards? I hate hardware restrictions, so maybe I'm lucky I didn't buy any of the older AMD boards :P

 

I;ve used both Red (AMD) and green (nVidia) cards at different times and tbh, I never liked the Catalyst drivers... what a PITA. Although the newer ones (12.x) seem to be pretty good :)

 

Power Supplies are a BIG factor in what card you run as well, make sure your PSU is up to an upgrade to your GFX card, or else..... muahahaha

 

Come to think of it, I have two AMD GFX cards in my gamer right now :P lol

AMD 990FX does suppor quad CFX/SLI out of the box, without any Lucid Hydra or other chips. But yeah, I agree, that there's no point in AMD CPUs anymore. You can get 2600K for 200$., or even 2700 for 337$ No point in BD anyway. There was a point in, if you already picked up MB before BD release, but, if you want new rig, get intel. *I can't believe I'm telling this after being for many years AMD fan*.

 

Nowadays, there's absolutey no difference in GPUs at all. Only color and brand name. PhysX is not required anywhere now. And in any case all the physics is being done by CPU. But the point was to but a card which is enough. It consumes almost no power, and has a good performance. And hy buy much more powerful card if it will eventually bottleneck a CPU?

 

On the side note. I am so dissapointed, that AMD cut 1100T. There's absolutely nowhere you can get even used one, or 1090T either. I could buy a new PC for the money spent on operations. I'm glad I'm healthy, but I owe so many cash, that I won't be able to get anyhting even afer Apocalypse.

I don't understand why one would think just because they have this awesome, high tech, state of the art, customed-built computer they could get higher gaming scores.

 

Point blank... if you don't know the concepts of any game that you play, or how to handle a not-so-good looking situation; or, how to maneuver and select the correct weapondry together with accuracy ... your hardware wouldn't matter one bit!

 

If you have lousy hardware -- So What! You can still have a better score by being smart, alert and accurate!
