I'll sleep on the decision to buy it, I'm not entirely sure yet (but certainly hold onto one, I can pay an extra 10 for the cables if you want)
I think i'm going to pass on your 6870 offer. I can get a second 6850 for 30 bucks more and get more performance than a single 6870.
Unless i can crossfire my 6850 with the 6870... But that would be a bit pointless wouldn't it?
Content on my part. I'm using this terrible temp Acer laptop while I wait for my MacBook Pro to get back from being loaned out on a business trip. It's got 2GB RAM, an Athlon II X2 P340, and a Mobility Radeon 4250. I'm using FireFox as my primary browser, and I generally have 30-40 tabs open. It is terrible.
Yep, but it functions as 2 6850s crossfired. The superior part of the 6870 gets turned off while it's crossfired with a worse card. (I just checked, you automerge breaker you)
In conclusion, getting a cheap 6870 is better than a new 6850 in this case.
Well, scratch that. Like i said, if i get my laptop sold in the next week i'll buy one. Although it will fuck with my "OCD", i'll deal with it.
Do you happen to have a crossfire bridge?
Are the crossfire bridges the same for every generation? I have one from my old 4870.

I checked stuff on my VPS and found this.
So I've managed to transfer over 52 Petabytes a second, at one point.
Wooh, I've broken world records on virtualized, standard commodity hardware. Fuck yeah.
Why is it that really expensive review builds never managed to get above 60 fps on highest settings in bf3 with 1920x1080 resolution on the 680/7970.
But one fps pro manages to have a steady 120 fps with the gtx 680 highest settings 1920x1080 and complains when his frame-rate goes down to 80 fps in bf3.
He does also not overclock etc.
This is the first review to be close to it:
Every other must be running a 60hz screen or something.
Because that benchmark you just posted has MSAA turned off, most reviewers turn everything as high as it can go including anti aliasing and all that shit which has a pretty big effect on performance
Just thought I'd say this but a lot of the things you guys say goes right over my head and out the window
I feel very unsmart in here sometimes
I am trying to tell everyone here that he did absolutely nothing to the game etc.
Anyone know where I can buy a KBC Poker?
Counter Strike 1.6
Any Half-Life original (not source that thing would struggle even more)
Terraria (I think the 945 is XNA compatable)
Freelancer (800x600 but everything at medium or high settings)
Mech Warrior 4 (you might wanna rebind some keys first)
Any Freespace game (purchase from gog.com)
Phun (cartoony physics, it's fucking fun)
Makol. Forgive me!
Wait no I remember why I left it out. Win7 has texture corruption errors on some drivers and since he just mentioned ubuntu dual boot, I'd run starcraft under ubuntu.
OH and Diablo 1 and 2
Never forget the original Blizzard games.
Like the Lost Vikings!
Also the original Command and Conquer games (1&2, as well as Red Alert) will run perfectly fine on that. Also there's an older game called Shogo: Mobile Armor Division. It's like Quake, but you sometimes are a mech that can turn into a hover tank thing. Age of Empires, as well. The original Quake and Quake II are options. If you are a Star Trek fan, you can get Star Trek: Voyager: Elite Force 1, it's like Quake III but with a kickass story mode, and the bots are much smarter. Really pretty much any game pre ~2001 or 2 will work fine.
Check your local thrift store for a CD section(They usually lump games and music discs together), I have more than a dozen awesome old games from my local Goodwills and Salvation Armies. You can get some great stuff from there.
And only tastes we get are Original, Zero and Light. I have never had some special ones like Vanilla or whatever thay had.
Oh well, coke is good enough.
Cherry Coke from glass is best Coke.
