Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

thats right - who cares which is good or bad - all we want to care is WE WORTH it !!:-o

Actually these debates are never ending... monotonous and never has an end. People who believe in something would continue to do so even though others try to make them understand the basic differences of it!

That is why I follow this now..

Never argue on..

1. Intel vs AMD
2. ATI vs nVidia (drivers)
3. Crysis runs better on.....

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

My old thread of 9800GTX+ vs. HD4850 proves that 9800GTX+ ran better with AA and AF enabled in the games that I tested. Period.

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

Hi All...

i just need to know which GPU cooler would be best for my graphics card (BFG GTS250OC)
The stock cooler does not do much by way of cooling...
after abt 90 mins of playing it gets heated up really high and the images on the screen begin to tear...
Please let me know what would be the best solution for this in a budget of 1-1.5k and if you know where i can get it from in Pune or online please provide those details as well..

Thanks,
Robs

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

There is a Thermalright GPU cooler for about 2.2k not sure about model number. It comes bundled with 2x80mm fans. And it works well on the 4850 AFAIK.

@Rob:
Are you using the latest forceware drivers...? Usually stock GPU HSF is fine...!

What PSU you have.

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

@krow: know where i can buy it online or some place in pune preferably...

@asigh: yes the drivers are current.. i knew at the time of buyin the card that i will have to replace the stock cooler... just never got around to buying one.. read in the online reviews that the stock GPU cooler sucks. but the card works like a charm once u replace it..
got the card from the US.. but my friend who got it for me did nt get a chance to get the cooler...
i have a VIP GOLD 500W PSU...

BFG is not available in India IIRC. I don't like your PSU. It may harm your rig that crap PSU. :(

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

Driver optimization to bring out raw performance

Ati still get weak in drivers ! u can't deny on this :arrow:

That's very true.

Just tried to install ATI gfx card drivers on a x1200 ( 690V chipset mobo ).
Do all necessary changes in bios prior that and uninstalled nvidia drivers. ( as friend was having a 7300GS on that mobo and he wanted to test the power of onboard gfx ). Driver installation failed by saying no compatible hardware found. Tried to install in safe mode but no success. Put that 7300GS back. Cleared the bios settings and every thing is up and running.

Zotac GTX 260 is avialable for only Rs. 9.3. HD5770 can only beat GTX 260 is DX 11 ( there was a app which can bench the DX11 ). But who cares for DX11.........can anyone quote some good DX11 games anyway ?

So Zotac GTX 260 @ Rs. 9.2-9.3K would be the best bet :p

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

^^ Offcourse i even like DX9 over DX10 - just in CRYSIS i like DX 10

Most of the games i play in DX 9 , give me 15 - 20 more FPS than DX 10

Who needs DX 10 , may be some one with over 28" inch monitor looking for real eyecandy can go for DX 11

Hmm then Zotac GTX 260 is not 55nm , its 65nm GPU !! AFIAK

Refuse to return your friends HD4890, and hand him the 11K you have. :)

Else go for the HD4890, you might need to add 1K more to your budget. Do not get a 5xxx series card. They are too-over priced.

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

Is the HD 5XXX series a DX-11 card & from what price they start...will it be a good idea 2 buy HD4870 now ??? :oops:

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

HD5xxx is dx11 series.

cheapest one (HD5750) costs around 9k and is very overpriced.

go for Zotac GTX260 that is available for 9.5k now

Re: All Graphics Cards related queries here.

If you want to get HD5xxx and have the dough i think you can spend it on HD5870. If you can wait. Get HD5890, soon to be released, ridiculously expensive cards! Plus HD4870X2 isn't cheap as well.
