Maybe we should call him gumby instead of ufgy
Don't you dare insult Gumby like that. Blockhead would be more appropriate.
So hey MM I may be able to swing a GTX 680 by the end of next month. I'm getting a $300 bonus next month. We'll see ! From the gaming benches I've seen that thing is a Beast yet runs cool and quiet. That would be a nice change.
If there are any to be had !
Good luck finding one! I mean I rag on the 7970 but its not a bad card if you OC the piss out of it.
7970 at around 1070 core will match the GTX 680 for the most part, depends on the quality of the GTX 680
they qoute 1058 boost clock but the alot cards will go as far as 1137 on boost clocks out of box, 1058 was just the 100% this will work so we stuck in on the box clock,
depending on how good the silicon is on the 680 its being compared to the 7970 can keep up just it fails the price performance segment lol
If you don't OC the 680 is better IMO. Less software problems.
GTX 670 looks like it should pretty good too and it should
be coming out when I get my funds together.
Yea the 670 TI does look quite good. remember though, the 690 is coming soon so I believe when it releases 680 prices will drop some.
Yeah thats just VLC, MSI Afterburners AVI files don't like to read well in Adobe Premiere, but they take up far less space than Fraps and are larger files (instead of millions of small files). So I record with MSI and then I use VLC full screen and record that with Fraps to grab the chunks of gameplay I want. Also got this screen last night, over 50k XP in on round, this is a personal record
I haven't really had any software issues with my 7970 (though I'm using 11.12's and they work great). The 680 out of the box is cheaper and faster, so for your average person, it is the better card. If you dip into overclocking though, the 7970 is a beast (not saying it isn't without OC), I honestly see a 25 - 30% gain in fps in all games, I mean thats just unreal. But if your unlucky like Crazy, you get owned and your card can't OC for crap (he's got to be very unlucky I see people running these to 1.3v on the reference cooler, granted 100% fan speed just for benching). Bonus side to 7970, especially now that 680's are out, is you can find them used, I picked up my card for $480 then my waterblock for $105, a WC 7970 for under $600, thats hard to beat.
I caught a gem of a moment today, possibly desktop worthy material, lol.
Nice was that Gumby you killed again
More looks like they smashed into each other.
Won't be on tonight guys, sick as a dog.
Yeah I tried warning them to air clowns, kept saying where the chopper was at, but neither of them took care of it, then it killed me. Then kill cam it's looking right at them, I'm telling them it's going to kill them, it's looking right at them, but I guess they decided to full fill the lovers death pact and take each other out in a blaze of glory
Having problems hooking into TS.
My BF3 id: Duryodhana, sent a request to join TechRejects, please accept.
Good games tonight, most TPU I have seen on at one time since I have returned to playing.
Too bad you can not make an appearance in the TS server
yep. me and ufgy were chasing one guy and turned the same way. and destroyed each other.
Well I just hoped back on after everyone else left and wanted to unlock CCTV for the tanks so... I did it in one round.
jesus your team must have sucked lol!
I don't end up saying too much when I do. I mostly just relay info on where people are, but when you start putting over 4 people in the same channel talking, any strategizing usually gets talked out the window as people are talking over others, or the guy you are talking to thought you were talking to someone else. Most of the time when I'm in TS I Key the Mic to talk, but someone else did at the sametime, so I unkey and figure everyone heard me, I'll wait till this guy is done, he finishes I key the Mic again, but someone else does it again. I remember one day I keyed the mic and let off 7 times before I finally got to say my thing Which was something simple like asking for ammo.
I'll have to sneak into TS more, but even in BC2, I was known as the very seldom heard guy, though Crazy caught on, if I was completely silent and they were on the other team, he would call me out on being near But yeah normally like 3 - 4 of us in Skype, and 4 man squad, so we can relay information pretty easily.
Yeah it was pretty fun to win that many rounds in a row.
Not a bad showing for the middle of the week.
I would get three shanks and the round would end. Pissed me off. I wanted a melee ribbon.
What we can do if they will do it is add a RU side and US side in the BF3 section of TS and the lobby is for non players.
Separate names with a comma.
