Well, I took the plunge. Went and ordered the HIS 2900 PRO Should be here on tuesday or wednesday.
should be a pretty good boost, lets us know how it runs.
hey dude... nice!!!
I got the HIS one aswell last saterday... and i must say i was really impressed with the packaging and build quality... its a beast!!! and so solidly constructed... you just can feel its gonna do the business.
looking online at the sapphire packaging.. it looks a bit shabby in comparison... im sure the sapphire card itself is fine though.
bet you gonna have a few restless nights before it arrives.. hehe
prepare to be impressed!!!
I see youre 3Dmark06 score is 6496 at the moment... prepare to double it!
Well i managed this below on a 3.2ghz overclock on my Q6600 (stock GFX):
Then i clocked the Q6600 to 3.4ghz and got this (stock GFX clocks):
its a beast
this card needs a high clocked CPU to really shine but i see you already clocked yours up... ... either way itll be the most powerfull piece in your machine and the best upgrade GFX you could get at this point
I am still on the retail cooler on my Q6600, so i only clocked it to 3.4 for a quick benchmark and then set it back down again after the 3Dmark06 bench... after that i then clocked the card to XT standards and have not done a bench with it... it ran comfortably at XT settings for 4 hours while i played "Medal of Honor Airborne" then i had to go to bed
Nice, wish I had the money right now to get one. Just replaced my radiator in my car today, that took over $160 of my funds. Oh well...2950pro here I come, well...probably after x-mas.
I just checked Newegg and found that they only have the HIS 512mb version in-stock, both Sapphires are out of stock. These things are going fassssst!
Ouch, sucks when the radiator goes. The main reason that I ordered today was because they were going so fast. I didn't want to get stuck with an 8800GTS or something like that.
I want one on the new card I paid $10 more for mine when I got it in 12/26/2006
The X1950XT is still a badass card, but then again, so was the 8600.... Currently on a Geforce 4 MX420 PCI . I have to wait.
lol nice card now im thinking of selling some of my stuff but I never done it
Hell man, the x1950XTX still brings 250-275 on Ebay, sell that mofo and get a Pro.
I'm selling a few old game consoles on eBay and trying to get money for a 2900 and then going to take my next paycheck towards some better cooling for my PC.
I'm really excited, let me know what you think of yours when you get it.
Will do. What consoles are you selling?
But not the XT's
Ah crap, I thought that you had the XTX. Even still, it's something.
well stock volts I can get 675/1008
But what are good things to use to sell online like on forums ??
when is your cards coming in ?
Tuesday if I am lucky, most likely wednesday, better not be thursday
2 Xboxs (non 360) and 1 Nintento Gamecube
Trying to get a minimum of $40 for each.
If your interested in either I can dig up the links pretty quickly.
Nah, thats fine. I am looking for a dreamcast. Been scouring craigslist, but haven't found anything worth my time.
Project 2900 is full go. My 8600GTS is sold and my 2900 pro has shipped from Newegg to UPS and will ship to me tomorrow. I am pretty pissed about it being here on Thursday, but I will live.
Currently playing Xbox 360 and the old games like Diablo 2 on my computer.
Flash it to a XTX and sell as XTX. If it will work that is.
that must give a big bang over the GF4 lol
so when did it get picked up by UPS ?
Congrats, they took their sweet time with my first one.
It got picked up today by UPS and shipped to me. And Damulta, they are taking their sweet time with me too.
Christmas comes early this year. It has arrived at the UPS office 30 miles away and will be here in the morning. So excited
