I'm really wondering how my HD5850 is going to fair. It did pretty well with the beta...
Second 5850 = Win
Yeah, I have been thinking about that and I'm pretty sure I have one lined up. Pay day just isn't close enough.
i'm planning on my 2x5850s running it at almost ultra on a 1080p screen. i figure i'll lower shadows and then aa, and hopefully that'll be enough. my single card did well in beta too, but a lot of options were off and ultra wasn't even really available, so that's not a great judge.
My Q9550 @4.0ghz and 2x5850 crossfired did really well (85 - 120fps). My 970 x6 @4.0ghz and 1 480GTX (90-110fps) did really well also and was very close to both my 5850's. But my Q9550 is really holding back my CF 5850's. I'm waiting on a new board for my 2600k to replace my Q9550. I may try and test crossfire on my 970 and a couple of x6 1055's @4.0ghz. I have 2 2500k's @ 4.5Ghz, but they don't have CF.. I only got them to crunch with.
Yes. LShift = hold breath. You could also use a bipod with your rifle. With a bipod deployed you have limited movement, but the gun is perfectly level all the time so no need for LShift.
And I was just being over dramatic about the wait and see thing. I personally didn't have much trouble flying with a keyboard only but I didn't say in the air very long. I suck at dog fights and found the chopper a better fit for my play style.
The greatest MP game ever made is not even out yet and you want to mod it to remove most of its features? :shadedshu
The free vpn service everyone was banking has been nuked. The site is completely down.
They're probably under the impression they are under DDOS attack, but it's all the BF3 players trying to get ahead LOL.
IM in. I had to pay $11 for VPN but I'm in SP
Im also in TS if anyone wants in... join up
Screen shots.. Or it didn't happen... j/k but yea.. Come on Trip don't hold out.
Post at Guru3D with screens:
Can I get the teamspeak info for here at work?
seriously, WTF is the teamspeak info?
the one's I've seen are all down......
220.127.116.11:4586 PW is rick
Also teamspeak is for android now as well! I currently connected through my droid!!!
Dunno how much I'd actually use but hey that's pretty cool.
/glares at iPhone (hey it's free from work!)
heh, i wasn't going to try it but i got it to activate didn't need any vpn though, why did you? i just used hide my ip and set it to indonesia, had to try 2 different addresses but the second worked.
The wait for BF3 is killing me X_X waiting for the midnight release tonight and chilling in the computer lab at school is boring me to death!!!
i'd check your release date manually, mine still said 3am before i did the hide ip thing, even though that countdown said midnight.
I forgot I had installed that and didn't try it this morning. Its all the same thing.. I was looking for a free trial VPN and I'll just ask for my money back on this one.
I'm getting a physical copy at a local GameStop and they are having a whole big event for it up until the midnight release
but that's still subject to regional activation times, right? just because you get the disc doesn't mean you can play at midnight, i would be surprised if you could.
Well I would be willing to chill until activation time but I will go check my regional time.
Edit: Scratch that school has lame filters I forgot about, anyone able to check EST activation time within the next 20 minutes?
