A? yes it does, when you 'scan for artifacts' & it finds one (or more) you get a messege in the box saying the number of errors, the incorrect pixel shows and it emits a 'bong' noise to let you know :p;)

lol i know but im looking for something a bit more sophisticated.

W1zzard keep up the great work. :rockout:

dont praise him yet

he's still not brought anything to the table. also we're waiting on ATITool to be updated (or replaced) but W1zzard has been focusing on Nvidia.

*kicks W1zzard in the teeth*

Commercial investment needed

atitool development is stopped. i'm working on a successor which is already working perfectly fine to do nvidia OC. ati overclocking is somewhat working. stability testing isnt there yet.

Cool, I'm looking forward to it. Like I said in another thread some time ago, your software adds great value to ATI's and nvidia's cards, so I strongly feel that they should:

1. pay you to develop this software
2. give you all resources necessary to allow you to develop a really solid, bug-free utility with Microsoft signed drivers
3. include it on the driver disc of every card

These companies are incredibly short-sighted for not doing this for you. :wtf:

I made the mistake of buying a HD2900 Pro 1GB last year. I thought I could tame the horribly loud fan with ATI Tool, to adjust the speed and core voltage, but it never really worked properly, as ATI Tool was very buggy due to that lack of investment. Also, with some more graphically intensive games it just wasn't possible to stop that bloody fan from spinning up or the card would cook. To top it off, the performance just wasn't there compared to nvidia. <lame>

I've now got the choice of three much better cards: HD4870 512MB, 8800GTX & the awesome 9800 GX2. :)

I really should eBay that 2900...

Well the reviews of the 2900s pretty much said what you found out, didn't you read any reviews 1st?? :Q
Isn't the 8800GTX an older generation card? I would of thought you'd be looking at the 200 series cards, unless their lots more? Anyway, way OT :eek:

I got the 8800GTX as a b-grade item for the really silly price of £58 (UK) a few months ago; I just had to try this iconic graphics card and compare it to my 2900 (it blew it away in 3D performance when compared. The difference seemed even more than the reviews suggested). Frankly, it really lives up to its reputation of being fast and quiet and perhaps I should have spent the stupid amount of money being demanded for it when it was new, but then hindsight is easy, isn't it?

Surprisingly, the performance deficit as compared to my 4870 isn't all that obvious on my system either (I bought the 4870 first). Animation tends to have a little less hitches too, sometimes.

As far as the 2900 goes, yes of course I read the reviews. The 8800GTX was still very expensive when I got it and overall I would have been reasonably happy with its performance, if it hadn't been for that obnoxious fan noise. The first thing I did when I got it was to run ATI Tools and tamed that fan noise, which was just about possible with a delicate combination of fan profile, core voltage and clock speeds. Given the games I was playing at the time and that I thought ATI Tools was still being developed then, I stuck it out waiting for things to improve, so there was some method to my madness. lol :laugh: Only afterwards, did I discover that newer games and/or higher resolutions made it heat up more than the ones I had been playing, making that fan impossible to keep quiet. :banghead:

And yea the 8800s were very pricey when they came out!
