Yup. We can roast marshmallows on a 1Ghz HD 4890 that started on fire!

YEah dude, the card is not even out and we already have three other discussions like this one....... Well whatever makes you happy. The whole thing is that it will get filled up with bunch of nonsense even before andy reviews are posted thus beating the purpose of having a separate discussion for 4890 review.

Cheers :)

§#@!? u Liquid. Got me triple clicking on the link to this post lol

Its just pitiful to see nVidia trying to get out of the pit they fell in. Having 123423 cards with 20Mhz difference is just pathetic.

They can offer an option where you choose your Mhz and be billed on Mhz.

- A 607Mhz GTX280 please
- Do you want a Memory Bonus?
- Whats that?
- If you buy 650Mhz we will add another 128 MB memory for only $199.99
- Oh yeah, give me that, if you have anything else for over $100 I will take it also
- We can rename your card for $100.01
- Sure, why not. Then it will be only me with that name, right?
- No, you can buy exclusive rights though, only for $33 099
- Let me check my house mortgage first

Anytime between now and April 9th depending on where you live and what web-site you read.

I know some websites in the US and continental Europe have it listed (Average price $239 / €239) whether they release it now if you ordered it.....

There is a rumour that Nvidia will be rebranding the GeForce4 ...... they will put it on a black pcb to look more modern, attach a modern heatsink to it, boost the memory to 256mb, add dvi outputs and name it the Geforce GTX400.

I'm sorry do I know you?:) 

If you read my posts which I'm sure you didn't, I don't have any high hopes for either of the new cards:)  I have 2 285s, I already have what I came for.

But I don't know where the term suicidal came from, I mean I can see that if it was a conversation with you :D 
:hello: 

March 28, 2009 12:19:02 PM

Doubtful, seeing as I'm buying the card, and its just an OCed 4870:)  I doubt any1 will commit suicide:)

You willing to stick to just a oceed 4870?
March 28, 2009 8:59:07 PM

no I'm buying the 4890, lol its just going to be a OCed 4870 with stock written all over it:) 

I'd much rather settle for a slightly more oced 4870 than back the X2.

It was a good card, its just that my expectations were really high:p  Plus I was stuck on the 8.12 + hotfix haha.

Would I buyt he 295 GTX over the 4870 X2, def not only an idiot :pt1cable:  would (unless money is no issue) since the 4870 X2 is excellently priced, would I buy and X2 or GX2 card again. def not:) 

I like having 2 physical cards:D 

Though I doubt I'll have the extra cash lieing around for a 2nd 4890, I'm saving for an i7 laptop:)  :sol: 
March 28, 2009 9:32:06 PM

^ HAHAHA

An i7 laptop would suck up juice maddeningly quick. my laptop has a Q8300 and a single 9800m GTX and it has a little over an hour of battery life with a 9v volt battery. I carry 3 around with me at all times.

Also: Just a random question, where does your name come from L1qu1d?
March 28, 2009 9:43:37 PM

I'm hoping the laptop i7s willl atleast last me 1:30 hr, but if it doesn't meh:p .

Oh yes, I hate u and ur damn Q8300 laptop:)  AHAHAHAH and also damn ur 3 batteries, :p  my current laptop 1 batery is over 90 $ :S So i'll stick to 1, but gaming gives me a little over 1.5 hours...very shocked actually but its only a P7350 and 9700M GTS (I ordered a P9600 off ebay:) ).

L1qu1d? Well good question, I know for sure it had something to do with Metal Gear Solid, It started off as l1qu1d 1ce then just plain l1qu1d since it was easier to call me that. Good old CS 1.3b days:) 

Thank you for the questio, and thanks for the headsup on the laptop, its still in my decision pile :p 

Frankly this laptop I have maxes out everything, but I don't really like thats its really chunky for so little. 17.1 inches:p 
March 29, 2009 2:20:13 AM

Yeah I had a feeling about it being a reference to MGS, love that series. Anyway my laptop was bought off a customer who fried the original Q8200 in it and IBuyPower would not help him so I put a spare E5200 which worked fine, but he just wanted some money back so I bought it off of him for $1000 and put another CPU in it. Luckily it used 775 CPUs so it was easy.
March 29, 2009 12:44:42 PM

Haha lucky you with the CPU:) 

Yup, loved MGS series, first 1 still is the best IMO, but the 4th and 3rd 1 had their ups and downs:) , I hated the 2nd 1...just felt out of place, but the graphics were def a major step up...Thank you Kojina:D  Now we need Zone of the enders 3 haha
