I have recently upgraded to a EVGA 560 GTX (see sig below). I have noticed all my games have "wavy" graphics. I have had screen tearing before, and this appears different. As described it appears like a "wave" goes quickly through a part of the animation. I have tried limited the FPS to 60...
Well I need to get a new card and I'm torn between getting a second gtx260 to SLI vs getting a gtx 570, any pros/cons I should know about SLI to help make the decision as I've always done single cards.
How to install Video card in Asus AH3450 motherboard ?

I've been looking around for a while and can't make a decision on what would be a real upgrade worth the money, from my 4870x2. Is there something? I know something like the GTX 590 or Radeon 6990 would beat it to bits, but I don't want to spend a fortune :fighty:
Or should I wait for the next...
i just got a Sapphire Radeon 6950 2gb video card i installed it and turned on the pc. it loaded well i got into the bios to check things out everything was ok but after some 30 seconds the computer turned off. tried several times in 2 attemps it was able to load windows but it would still turn...
Before I start, here are my relevant pc stats, off the top of my head.
Samsung monitor, LCD, 22''. Over 4 years old. Plugged with a DVI cable.
ATI Radeon HD 4??? video card.
Windows 7 32 bit
I'm having a bit of a problem at home. My monitor sometimes turns off completly and...
Just got a new Sapphire 6950. It worked great for a day and a half. Then today when I turned on the computer, it began throwing artifacts and then the card would stop responding. It would restart 5 or 6 times, then quit working altogether and would have to restart the machine. This card...
So I upgraded to Win7 a while back, I've been playing Fallout New Vegas, and notice it runs much slower than Fallout 3 did on WinXP. I'm pretty sure its the same graphics engine, I had to turn down the eyecandy and it still is a bit slow in certain high action areas. I just upped my FSB overclock...
anyone selling their used video card on here? i was hoping for something like an ATI 4890, but am open to suggestions.
I've got this graphics problem recently when trying to play games......... As soon the game kicks in to play mode the screen goes blank and them multiple colored dots cover the whole screen and a humming noise comes out of the speakers and the system has to be rebooted to get rid of it.
Is it worthwile upgrade from a 8600 GT to a GT 220?
That 6770 is almost as fast as a 5850. Scary stuff.
Notice that they've gone from a x5 (four simple, one complex) to x4 (four complex) setup for each SM. That points to a very major re-design of the fundamentals. Expect the 6000s to be a brand...
as the title states, is this card worth the price?
best one for gaming?
i have currently a single geforce gtx 260 712 mb (might be wrong on specific mb but its in the 7xx range asking at school so can't verify atm) and i was wondering if i would see a performance boost on my computer by installing a geforce gts 450 1 gb graphics card.
I'm still semi new at figuring...
Hey all. My EVGA Geforce 8800 GT died today. Beep error on post so I swapped cards, and problem identified. I can't keep that swap card in there, so here is my dilema:
Do I buy the same card used on E-bay, or buy a new replacement of a different type. If I should buy a new one for an upgrade,...
What do you guys think? The 460 costs $235, the hd5850 anywhere from 280 and up. Consider using a HD resolution monitor.. (1080p) which one is the better buy? And why?
Does anyone have any information on when these are supposed to start appearing?
Right now they are basically all the same card with a different sticker thrown on.
Just when we thought we had seen everything, ASUS release something truly insane. Let's side-step the obvious drooling and ask the million dollar question -
If you had the money, would you buy this dual GTX480 videocard OR a pair of Radeon HD 5870's in Crossfire?
"We all know that the...
"BFG Technologies, Inc. is winding down and liquidating its business. Unfortunately our major supplier would not support our business. As a result we are returning your graphics card without being able to repair it. We apologize for the inconvenience."

Will an Asus Ati 5670 1gb, that requires a PCI-E 2.1 (x16) slot work on an Asus P5K Motherboard?
That has to be the most fragile card I have ever handled. One sneeze and she's a gonner. just playing around with one out of boredom. What's up the lame HSF design? I thought all 9800gtx's had the large housings that covered the whole card. Oh well. lol
Just me blabbin'. Carry on.
My XFX 5850 was DOA. This is the second time of all video cards I've purchased I've gotten this. QC seems lacking on many GPUs. Is this so common?
My friend bought a new computer, a total beast I might add but for some reason anything graphic related lags like hell.
For instance, we tried playing Starcraft 2 on the lowest settings and the FPS hangs around 10.
The same goes for scrolling down a page in a web browser, and...
Hey Steve, you better get ready! I have my PhysX all up and running. I shall be running Vantage shortly.
I had to RMA my card and they said I have a choice between teh 9800GX2 or getting a GTX 285 not sure what one to go with. Please let me know what you all think is the better option.
I'm about to buy an hp desktop and want to know which card to choose. Should I go with the 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5450 which is included in the price, the 1GB ATI Radeon HD 4650 for $20 more, or the 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 220 for $40? Is the 1GB ATI Radeon HD 4850 really worth $70 more?
Should I just...
more power hungry, hotter, slower than HD5850

I replaced my GeForce 8800 GT with a GeForce GTX 470 yesterday. Must say folding@home is much quicker with the new card. Can't complain about the noise really either and that's moving from a 8800 GT that had a quiet Zalman cooler on it.
One problem I did have was that the card blocked most of my...

Just wanna run this past you guys. We know the GTX 480 pulls some juice and NVidia recommends at least a 600W PSU with +12 volt current rating of 42 amps on a single rail.
Mines the Corsair HX750---
Single +12V rail design providing up to 62A.
But I will be pushing it to it's limits like mad....
Here we go again, after my little episodes 2 weeks ago, my video card drivers keep crashing.
My pc is on an LCD TV, I switched too many times between inputs. It stopped working, the next day everything was fine.
Or so I thought...
*DUN DUN DUUUUUNNNN*
With all the hard shutdowns I did,...
Well it's a slow, boring Friday night so what else to do? Play with some junk. It was stashed away in my closet of junk and the wife almost threw it all out until I intercepted the pass.
Kinda dusty but after a few blows from the can and a little sweet talking she still worked.
i just flashed an FX5200 for my G4. had to cut a couple pins on the agp connector as well to make it work, just had an interesting read about why. i could have taped the pins, if i could find tape, but after flashing it in a pc, and not knowing if it worked anymore or not, i said f it, and just cut...
Well it's nothing fancy, but we all love new hardware right? :D
It's for my server to replace the 8800GTS 320M. Going to use it for folding mainly and hopefully lower power consumption...
It was funny opening it though, as it's in a rather huge box. And well I'm not overly used to seeing such...
You know and I know how hard it is to find a 5970 right now especially in a local retail store. Well, I just did. Well it was Saturday. I walk into Microcenter to pick up a few items and I did my usual peek behind the counter where they keep the high end goodies such as video cards, mobos etc. And...
This just off the Reuters news line:
Just thought i give everyone an update on my new unforeseen upgrade.
the new HD5850 cypress once again impressed me over the previous generation of 4890.
This thing is packed with TONS of value underneath. the overclocking potential is endless. i recently discovered amongst the new early...
