Filter through the gfx forum for a good deal.



What you reckon to an X850XT with a P D805 @3.6GHz ?!

With my rig I play BF with 1600x1200 with almost every maxxed out.

BUT BE WARNED!!!!

When I play BF2 I have to pull back ram to a FSB of 215 instead of 230 because PunkBuster kicks me. It checks your ram and if for whatever reason it doesn't think something is right it sees it as a cheat.

I have also heard other stories of OC problems in BF2 with PunkBuster.

So you have been warned.

Interesting fact... I just pulled 2x512 value select sticks from my machine cause they were holding back my RAM clock. Left the 2x512 XMS sticks in and am now running at 178MHz. Before all four sticks were at 133. RAM wasn't even overclocked anyway!!!

Also, I didn't just get kicked I got my CD key banned. I did nothing wrong and am trying to resolve the issue with Punkbuster. They said they detected that my CD key was in a clear violation of their EULA. I asked them to check the MAC address that the cheat was detected on and compare it to mine and haven't heard back from them since. Said they couldn't disclose that information. I wasn't asking to know anything just for them to check. Really frustrating!! :x

Meanwhile I am not buying another copy in protest of their draconian approach to the matter. I get punished for someone else's screwup? They've lost a customer.
