XFX 6800 GT arrived! Pics inside

Recommended Posts

Finally got this damn thing yesterday. Excuse me for the crappy pic quality, I took them pretty fast without adjusting the camera much. Took it with my powershot A75. You MAY have to copy and paste the links into your browser. Or copy the link, open another browser window and paste it in there. This thing is GREAT. UT2K4 max details 1280x1024 4X aa 8X af, lowest the frames get is 50, usually in the hundreds.

Yeah I got mine on thursday. It's an awesome piece of kit, it runs Far Cry at 1152*864 with medium AA, settings maxed out, perfectly. I'm ready for Doom 3 me thinks :)

Oh, you're links are broken by the way.

Eh not that bad, considering it overclocks to Ultra speeds easy. Plus I'm selling my 9800 pro for $200 canadian so I make some of it back.

How tall is the card?

1 slot or 2 slots?

The reason I'm asking is that my Soltek Qbic only has enough space for 1-slot cards ;)

LMFAO omg how the hell do you come up with such plain words that fit perfectly well with whatever it is your talking about and make me laugh so hard wtf... Anyways 700 canadian dollars is that just as hard to get as U.S. dollars? I thought 500 U.S. bucks was too much for a video card. I think I'll do alright with my radeon 9700 pro till direct x 10 comes out (i'll probly buy an nvidia card next unless it gets bethroned by ati)

DirectX 10 won't be out for another few years. The 9800 pro was a pretty good card, served me well. This thing kicks it's ass though. The GT is a 1 slot 1 molex connector card.

i keep saying comparing doom3 to farcry is a bad idea. Doom3 will look fucking sweet either way on that card

It will do I have a 5700 LE and it runs it fine on 800*600 on medium settings. But I have a 3.0 ghz and 1 gig of ram so whatever..Im buying a 6800 GT anyway.

I have a 5900XT oc from BFG and I play 1024x768 at medium. High stutters some, but I think system ram could help (have 512). At medium and 1024x768 it is beatutiful and really when it was on high, couldn't tell a difference. Yes the 5900 is enough.
