Right now i own an Sapphire ATI 9800 pro 256mb
Need for speed most wanted is coming out (there is an demo now) www.needforspeed.com
Was wondering if u can get the cards running up to the demo and see how they do...since the game is really into shadows and car detail/ envirnment detail....I have it running on my 9800 but the smoke and shadows seem blocky...but the world detail and car deatil is good...the frame rate looks decent, but i was finding my self a bit mad that it wasnt flowwing very very welll.....
So if it woundnt be much trouble if u can test the 1800xt 512mb and the 2 GTX's for this demo?
I am in the market for an ATI card, (i vowed not to buy a NVIDIA card) and ATI fanboy thing i guess.....
Also need advise on either buying this x1800xt 512mb or wait till spring for the R580 to come out...becuase im looking for more pipelines, becuase for some reason i feel if i buy this x1800xt 512mb card will will regret when R580 comes out:>
And moneys not a vertue...

Ok now i am deffinitly not buying the x1800xt lol, not even worth buying lol....might as well wait for the R580 to release, and if thats any good then ill be happy...but if not then im swithcing to NVIDIA and what they have to offer....
So ATI you are lucky to still have me as an costemer of ur products, but its really hard to look how you've been beaten to easyly....
