  1. I have one question about those 5970's.

    WHY?

    Get a 470gtx or two three screen with possibly 3d setup and you'll get a weaker system (who cares they're both more than good enough) which will be the colest thing on earth.
  2. Quote:
    AMD/ATI has made available an early “preview” version of their new Catalyst 10.3 driver for download for both Desktop and Mobile users with Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. The official Catalyst 10.3 driver WHQL-ed is due in a few days or to be more exact on 24th and it should not be much different than this one, just supposedly more stable and problem free. Besides the normal updates resulting issues being fixed and some performance improvement in Catalyst 10.3a there are also some improvements that will be interesting to Eyefinity users (anyone out there actually taking advantage of Eyefinity yet?). But probably what is the most interesting in this new driver release is the introduction of official Stereoscopic 3D support for 120Hz displays and shutter glasses on driver level…

    ATI Catalyst support for 3D Stereoscopic glasses
    AMD has updated it’s Direct3D (Quad buffer support) driver to enable 3rd party middleware vendors such as iZ3D to output stereo L/R images at 120 Hz (60 Hz per eye)

    But don’t be too happy yet, as the above quote just says that ATI has introduced some new functionality to make it easier for other companies such as iZ3D and DDD to implement shutter glasses support in their products so that when they are combined with new ATI hardware and the new 10.3 driver (or later) the users will be able to play games in stereoscopic 3D mode with a 120Hz LCD monitor and a set of supported shutter glasses. Both iZ3D and DDD still haven’t announced when they will actually add this support in their products and the supported shutter glasses produced by Bit Cauldron will most likely not hit the market before summer time. So you’ll have to wait some more time before actually being able to play with active shutter glasses on ATI hardware…
    hmmm 3d and eyeyfinity

    but here are a few switches

    about the psu ive heard the 1000w will mess the wires in ur home if not good enough is that true?

    and the mobo ive never used asus or anything else but dfi im fond of my dfi lanpary p35 dark and witch mobo do u think would be the best i dont need the two ethernet ports and i want really good cooling as so maby i wont have to w/c the sb and nb. the GIGABYTE board seemes real nice for cooling.

    and final the ram i want to run triple channel still and y do you say 2 sets of thoes insted of the gameing ram i have?

    ur reply confuses me it sounds like u want me to get a weker system o.O maby u could explane what u meen for me......

    Well 2 5970's is insanely expensive and quite useless. Two 470's is more than powerfull enough. And the money you save you can use towards a 3screen 3d setup.

    well this system ashures me for a wile with no upgrade to the gpu only cpu
  7. I think you seriously underestimate 2 470's. Or overestimate the effectiveness of quadfiring 5870's.

    You lose quite some power when you quadfire you know

    loose power?
  9. quadfire is 4 cards i only want 2 and benchmarks show 2 5870's are better then anything foor now

    watch this vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YV-g7fDRz_I i think not
  11. I mean lose power as in 4X5870 isn't four times as good as 1 5870

    that is a loss of around 5-10percent I find that pretty sicnificant. if you don't then no problem there.
  12. ohh and two 5970 is the same as 4 5870's btw. They're just two gpu's in each card.

    current top 5 in the world

    1000 watts doesn really mess with you home wiring since your averge 15amp beaker can carry up to 1500 watts safely but your pc wont be running at full load all the time if you pc needs only 700 watts your power supply will only provide the needed 700 watts if no matter what capable size power supply so if you have an 850 watt power supply or a 4000 watt power supply they both will provide only the power needed

    that cp 1000 is one of the best antec has at a great price

    CORSAIR DOMINATOR-GT 12GB (6 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory with Airflow Fan Model CMT12GX3M6A1866C9 would thoes be any better then the low timeing ones u have?

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820145311
  19. its ok but corsair tends to be hugely over priced ram
  20. when u add them up the ones with the lowest timeings are the same price as the dominator so lower = best thanks
  21. obsidian86 said:

    when u get to 12gb there both the same price but lower timeings on ur choice so there way faster and a better buy right?
  22. yeah exactly

    but if you wanna spend $600 on ram get 3 sets of these

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231336
  23. If that thing is supposed to disagree with me then I have a following question.

    How is the fact that the only 4XGPU test is the best impressive? lol
  24. those 5870's are OCd much higher. Just accept the fact that four way 480's is insanely better in terms of performance(10percent orso with premature drivers). It may heat you room and turn off the lights but it performs far better.
  25. look carefully the gtx 480 system is using 2 hexacore cpu's the 5870 system is only using one hexecore

    and nvidia cards always been clcoked lower then ati cards its a fundamentak design to each company
  26. http://www.bulletproofnerds.com/smf/index.php?topic=2161.0 this site proves that 3d vantage is bad indicator for actual gpu performance and why are you not willing to accept that a hotter, more power hungry and expensive card performance better?
  27. because if the 5870 was as hot and as power hungry it would run circles around a gtx 480 backwards the 5870 is just a better gaming card then a gtx 480 its like a choice between a ferrari and a tank yeah the tank has its uses but it could never do what a ferrari does but at the same time a farrari cant do what a tank does i respect both companies on their own terms but nvidia seriously dropped the ball on the gtx480 series

    thoes are dual channel kits i want triple channel
  29. it doesn't really matter if its tripple channel or dual channel. Its the same ram just in different sets, but if you take 3 sets then you have tripple channel.

    Tripple channel just means that the modules fill up 3 channels. Which the case with 3 of those sets.

    And boy that is fast ram I didn't know 2000 cl6 even existed.
