I concur. ;)



:laugh:

Gully, I find one 2GB 6950 card perfect. My scoring drops with 2 cards, for some reason. Couple other of the TPU players say they play better with 2 cards....weird one. FPS-wise, kinda need 2 cards for full graphics features 60+ FPS consistent.

11.5 is pretty good from what I see on my 6870. I'm thinking of getting a 6450
for my desktop P4. It has a 5450 in it and plays all the CODs. It played BFBC2
when I had a 5570 in it. Sold that with the Dual core I sold last year. The DDR5
version of the 6450 should run about the same as it did.

I think my 6950 plays the game better than my 2x 5850's played it. The max FPS is lower, but the Average and Min are higher, I played it maxed out without any real issue.

Your Scar stats are rocking, I might have to try that. But even considering, you are at 51 kills an hour with that, where as something like the PKM I am at 71 kills an hour with. But Engineer makes up for it with other tools.

**EDIT** Interesting, my Scar stats are way up there as well, I just haven't used it much, but it's like 20 kills an hour higher than my other Engi weapons... hmmmm!



Thats the one kit I can't stand, I just hate sniping, if I run any setup it's probably a VSS with extended ammo + magnum ammo. I don't mind Plats, but I remember racing to use my M60, even on the PS3 Beta before others unlocked it, before people knew it was godly (which got it nerfed to crap) I wanted to hold that beast in my arms and just rampage people. I leave RPG's to achievements for the most part, BC2 is my vent, I just kick back and wreck and if a weapon seems good, I start using it. I used the PP2000 for my first 350 hours of gameplay when I used Eng, but lately I been using the UMP.
scar L is secretly awesome. it's stats are really mediocre looking but when you use it, it is somehow boss. the best I could ever figure is that it has tight spread. you just hit what you want, not messin around.

I enjoy one shot kills, but I just cannot snipe.

That's what I did for the M24, SV-98, the GOL and now the M95. The M95 is hard to run around with though, so I'm trying the whole "camping" thing. It's not fun. :shadedshu
I love running m95 with red dot. other than GOL, it is the only other sniper I actually see myself ever platting. the way bodies drop is so satisfying it out-ways the slow reread and lower ranged accuracy.

yea yea you are almight and awesome but without me and tango backing you up i doubt the score would be as boss as it is lol.
Boss, I haven't heard that one in a long while. It was huge in the 60's 70's.
I have a grand kids BD party today, but should be doing some gaming tonight.

looks like this Sh*t http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B84qjrrXk6A&feature=related
Have you tried lowering your overclocks? Since every game reacts to overclocks of either cpu and/or video card, differently. I had the same issue until I dropped my OC just a little bit on the GTX460 I had.

I wouldn't go back to 32 bit. You won't get nearly as much power out of your system if you do that.
It is a huge advantage when it comes to gaming. I would guess it is an OC problem too.
If I OC a little bit it makes this game hang. Shoot Metro would freeze just booting the game.
Drop to Default settings on your card and if still happens uninstall your drivers and use the
New 11.5 if you don't already.

its been stated dozens of times across the forum 64 bit can make your system unstable if its OC'd, simply because sometimes the 64 bit parts of the chip give out before the 32. simple as that.


lower your OC slightly to get it stable, and you'll be a very happy camper. going 64 bit can solve a hell of a lot of crash to desktop issues with modern games at high res and 1GB+ video cards.

I was wondering how others ran this game, and what FPS they got, i was getting about the same FPS with one card but got lots of input lag, but now i went with 2 4870X2's my FPS has almost doubled and it runs smooth now with settings to the max.
