I know it may be a little early to tell, but I was wondering if anyone had an ETA on the next gen graphics cards? I plan on doing an upgrade here and was kinda holding off on the vid cards until I heard something about this, but I have yet to dig up any info. I am sitting on a decent SLI motherboard, so at the moment if I were to buy cards today, it would be 7900GTX's, but I dont want to drop $1000 just to have a new GPU announced on monday. Thanx in advance for any info!
April 29, 2006 7:01:07 PM

There are always new cards coming out, so the question really is do you want to upgrade right now? If not, then wait. Two 7900's or X1900's will smoke just about anything out there, as well as cause a power brownout. If you wait for the next gen. of cards, expect to pay Hollywood prices. :wink:

The G80 will be out in June. :roll:

There are nice ways to tell someone to use the search and then there are the dickhead motherfuckers like yourself who just dont seem to get it at all :roll:

Dud like I told you before, take a nap, then go read some books, and I'd say come back when you've learnt something, but I don't think anyone wants you back, so why bother?

Perhaps if you even had an inkling of what you were talking about you'dbe funny, but your an ignorant troll whose likely age and IQ match his show size, if that. :roll:

No solid news of any sort. But there are rumors that G80 is delayed.

Nvidia G80 misses tape out

NVIDIA G80 Delayed (Insider Series)

Best advice is to just wait. nVidia has a track record of releasing new or updated video cards every 6 month; 9 months if there are any delays.

Since the 7900 series just came out in March it can be assumed that G80 will not come until September, or early December if there are delays.

Will nVidia buck the trend and release G80 in the summer? Don't know, but a production life of only 3 months for a GPU is kinda aggressive even for nVidia.

for one thing the same sort of topic was discussed a few posts down from this one. he didn't need to search the forums, just look in the gfx card section. secondly i'm reporting you for your language which is not need on these forums.



How do you even know he was on the front page looking at the scrolling topics? Oh thats right, you are god and you know everything :roll: like I said before, there is the right way and the wrong way to ask someone to use the search function! you choose the smartass way and I can assure you that no one likes a punk like you who calls people idiots for not using the search!

You want to report me than thats just fine, two can play that game. I am reporting you for your crappy behavior and attitudes with people that dont do things the way you think they should be done.

That was this guys FIRST post! He is new! give him a break and explain things to him nicely! that should not be too much to ask!

Im really sure he feels welcome here after your comments and attitude and name calling. :roll:
May 1, 2006 4:23:59 PM

Quote:
it is no excuse saying he is new as that would only be more reason to do a search IMO.


Well its too bad for you that the world does not revolve around you and your opinions. I absolutley despise smart ass people like you who jump on any and everyone and call them idiots just because they dont do things the way you think they should be done! you need to get over that shit and get over it now!

The guy is NEW PERIOD and he was most likely just a little excited and anxious to get an answere and therefore posted something without really looking first, it happens to us all every now and then especially with NEW PEOPLE.

While I will agree EVERYONE even NEW people should use the search function I dont agree with your smart ass attitude and name calling of people (idiot) just because he didnt search. You could just kindly inform him of the search without being such a PRICK about it. At least that way he feels welcomed here as we all should.

It's amazing how many jerks populate these forums.

Google is for research.
Forums are for questions.

Any question posted here could be found using a google query, probably easier even than the forum searches. Easier is they key: it's easier to post a question and get an answer than to search through 100 obscure results (google or otherwise) looking for information relevant to the question.

It is much easier to spend 10 seconds answering a question you feel is "dumb" than ranting 20 times on every question you feel is dumb. So really, who is showing the lack of intelligence here? The person asking a simple question, or the person wasting hours of his life complaining about it?

LOL, this is great. Never thought I would cause so much fun. In my defense, the post that I was supposedly able to find would require me to know that the G80 is NVIDIA's new GPU, which I didn't, and considering it was being compared to current gen card (the 7900) I assumed it was a comparison to something out already. Thanx to everyone who defended me! Even though I didn't get much useful info, its still a great thread. WOOT!

sounds like a nice box. are the Dual evga Geforce 7800 GT COs for gaming?

just curious. the guy that started this thread ended up with more supporters
than naysayers. interesting that. well, calling him an idiot was completely uncalled for, so...

I have tried to search for my question already having been asked and answered, but can't find it.

Mind if I ask you a question about video cards? if you "NO" it's ok :) 
I understand, and bear no hostility. not even to stanger. I think he's been reamed sufficiently and may change his ways :lol:

May 2, 2006 9:38:26 PM

I wish everybody would, really. we're all supposed to be on the same side, I think....oh well, anyway...

I am not a person who needs a state of the art high tech balls to the wall gaming card. I just need my monitor to look halfway decent.

the application I will be using primarily will either be cubase or adobe audition.
probably cubase, a digital audio recording software.

what's a decent card for that kinda stuff?? I notice most of you guys are into pretty fancy stuff.

honestly, I did a bunch of searches but found nada about garden variety graphics cards. if there are some threads there, I missed them.

hell, maybe it's ME that's the idiot here. if so, how would I be able to realize it? it's all very confusing.

anyway, stranger...that's my question. how do I find a mid range non gaming graphics card without inadvertantly getting a lemon in the process?

I believe in the say about getting what ya pay for and so on...

well, thanks. I'll check into maxtor immediately. I didn't know they made video cards. as to agp or PCIe, ??? depends on what mobo I buy. I have researched the Athlon 64 Venice to the point that I know it's what I want.

honestly, a lot of the newer hardware, mobos and graphics cards are capable of doing much more than I plan on demanding from them.

on the other hand, maybe I'll surprise myself :) 

been playing the guitar for 40 years now. I hope it don't take that long to grasp the learning curve in terms of digital audio recording.

strangely enough i have just started playing the guitar, or well 6 months aint really just started but you know what i mean. your probably very good unlike me.


"your probably very good" after 40 years, I better be or I really am an idiot.
I made a good living at it for 25 years. the downside is that I spent the time in and out and back and forth with bands bands bands. not unusual.

shoulda worked up a solo act years ago. never too late :) 
I'm a weekend warrior currently. no hit records or anything. 90 bucks a nite is all I can scrape outa the cheap bastards these days.

<<unlike me>> give yourself time. you'll get there. how old are ya?
I'm 50. I don't think I want to start learning anything too taxing at this point.

hey, I still have an old AGP PNY card with 64MBs

last page of the manual says

Digital Flat Panel Supports Mode.........

640x480 8/16/32 bits
800x600 8/16/32 bits
1024x768 8/16/32 bits
1280x1024 8/16/32 bits

it was built in 2002 and is NVIDIA. I also prefer ATI but only from reading and researching. have not actually used an ATI product knowingly. likely, not at all.

anyway, this ol' PNY just might git er done!!! there's even a chapter about
Direct #D Settings...

you mean MAXTOR?

this rascal is the cheapest I could find at newegg. I'm sure they have less expensive cards somewhere. see? this thread was not a loss. not only do I now know of a company called MaTRox, I actually got some hits for MaxTOR graphics cards. which is really weird.

this one on newegg looks pretty snazzy. I may try my old PNY and see if it does the job. still shopping for a mobo I like. a socket 939 mobo
