    God Of War 3

    Is this PS2 or 3? Haha, that is how long it has been since I played on a console. Rats...don't plan on having a PS3. Absolutely love God of War...best game I have played for the PS2.

    Quad core vs Dual core CPU for xfire/SLI

    If you look at their graphs, they mess up the CPU/Board combo a lot. They say they are using the E8400 on the X58 board in a few graphs. Anyway, thanks for the link. I either missed that part when I read the article or they added it some time after I read it.

    Why Can't I play Crysis Warhead Anymore?

    I peed my pants that was so funny

    Best Looking Games (other than Crysis)

    Vista Texas Holdem has some pretty sweet 3D effects. Far better than minesweeper IMHO. I agree with the FC2 comment above. The lighting and shadows are very realistic. Both FC2 and COD4 are pleasing to play because they have great visuals and run smooth like butta.

    Quad core vs Dual core CPU for xfire/SLI

    In light if the guru3D i7 review revealing the huge gains in xfire and SLI performance my question arises....what about quad cores? They only tested a dual core to compare to the i7. Has anyone seen a dual core vs quad core comparison to see if it makes a difference for SLI and xfire? I...

    Is this still fact? FC2

    Car bombing them is fun. The only thing I haven't figured out about that yet is how to jump out of the car and have it keep rolling. The cars always brake if you try to jump out. Would be much easier to car bomb if the car kept on rolling like they do in Crysis.

    Far Cry 2 problems

    It doesn't mention any random crashing fixes. The patch only has a few fixes...doesn't sound complete...just like the game at launch date.

    Far Cry 2 problems

    Happens to me too. I can play for ~45 minutes and then it crashes to the desktop with no error. I start it back up and then it happens about every 20-30 minutes. It is a very consistent problem, happens every time I play. I try to save the game every 5 minutes with F5 but it gets a bit annoying.

    Far Cry 2 Patch 1.01

    Uh, what about the random crashing to the desktop every 25-30 minutes in Vista?

    Catalyst Hotfix 71310 Restores Visual Elements at Expense of Performance

    Wow, anyway...look at my screen shots to see what I was talking about in my previous post that got buried by pointless FPS crap. The road texture acts like a fog effect or water...it comes up over objects and you can still see them below the road. The rocks aren't gone, they are just under...

    Catalyst Hotfix 71310 Restores Visual Elements at Expense of Performance

    I have seen this problem with the road. It think it is only road related too. I noticed that guns, people, and even car tires when in the road have this effect that looks like it sinks into the road a bit. I will try to capture a screen shot tonight. I remember one specific case when I was...

    The far cry 2 thread!

    Ah yeah the golden AK...I found that one too and it took me a while to figure out what it was about. I was hoping it was like the golden gun in 007...mwahahahah 2nd map...huh? Are you talking about the entire huge map that takes hours to drive across? There are more? I haven't gotten too...

    AMD Issues Far Cry 2 Hotfix for Most ATI Radeon Video Cards

    This is very good for ATI and they definitely came through with this hotfix. This game is going to be huge and if it plays better in DX10.1 than in DX10 this will not only be a great marketing tool for ATI but in the long run will help pave the way for developers to get out of DX9. This is...

    Solaris17 Warhead review unbias

    Nice job Solaris. The lighting and fog effects in the Enthusiast mode look a lot more realistic than in gamer mode. Performance mode is freaky...there is a serious lack of vegitation. Looks like they just take it out entirely and leave behind the terrain paint.

    Cat 8.8 is here.

    I can't get through tweaktown in Firefox...it freezes the browser I have to go through the IE to read tweaktown these days.

    Cat 8.8 is here.

    Hmmm...I haven't heard of any legit performance gains yet. Tweaktown shows a few slow downs and a few improvements. Think I will skip over 8.8...I have no complaints with 8.7

    I'm looking for an ASUS 4870 BIOS

    Gacha. I hear of people getting up to 900 but haven't looking into whether it was using a vmod or not.

    I'm looking for an ASUS 4870 BIOS

    H82, does that TOP bios help stabilize higher OCs? I have been keeping an eye on this ASUS bios but haven't seen much on how it affects OCing the 4870. I have the Sapphire too and I can only get the core up to 825 on stock cooling with fan tweaks. Anything over that introduces artifacts...

    Ubisoft's Far Cry 2 System Requirements Published

    Exactly. They also don't say at what settings. At a low rez and all settings at low, my old P4, AGP 6800GT system would run Crysis with good frames. The PC version is supposed to look a lot better than the console versions. As long as that is true and the gameplay is as good as the hype...

    ATI 8.8 Beta Drivers

    Oye, when are they going to get xfire back in biznazz. It must be all FUBAR if they haven't tackled that beast yet. Power consumption should take a backseat to xfire, they are losing the race to SLI right now.

    The 4800 series Driver, OCing, Cooling and Tweaking Thread

    Stock coolers are working just fine. What is the need for an aftermarket? Keep in mind they will send the heat into your case rather then vent it out of the back.

    The 4800 series Driver, OCing, Cooling and Tweaking Thread

    erocker, did you volt mod? I found that hitting 840 gives me a lot of artifacts. 830 seems to do alright on my GPU. What is your highest stable GPU clock?

    HD4850/4870 Fan Fix + OC Fix.

    Ok, this is throwing me off. It was working and now it is not. OCing works fine but CCC, what seems to be randomly, doesn't want to load the profile after I set the OC in the AMDtool. Do you know what the inconsistency is erocker? Do you see this at all?

    HD4850/4870 Fan Fix + OC Fix.

    Yeah there are flashes...I was talking about programs like CCC or Rivatuner...but yeah you have a point, there are other ways. I don't particularly like flashing the BIOS for video cards but if that is your cup of tea then so be it. I have done it once with an older card past the warranty but...
