1024x768. Nope, not a bit choppy. Yup, I was really suprised myself.

I've installed 1.3. What's Geometry Instancing? Does simply installing the patch have it enabled?

Think you need to go into the console command and type \r_geominst 1 or something. There is a way to enable it. Gotta read the readme file though, Oh and you need that CCC..

Yeah I totally agree about SS and Sat. controls.. my two biggest gripes about having an ATi card. Coincedence?
ATI thinks super sampling has too big of a performance hit (who cares we dont use it for its performance) and they for some reason think they can do DV already. Of course I heard they have a "Radiancy" feature coming with the new CCC.

A new CCC? Wasn't there just a new one released? :p Honestly. I used SS on my GF4 Ti simply because it looked great.

I'll try Geometry Instancing in a while, and take some shots with AA/Aniso with Fraps on and post em up. :)

Cool Lemme know. Not that we havent seen enough Far Cry already. But curious anyway :) Anyway, When/if I getthat 6600GT AGP card thats supposed to be sent to me. I'll be comparing it directly to the 9800 Pro.

Damn not only did I effectively make kaiser a thread, I also derailed it.

This month according to my sources. I'd expect wide retail availability in December. All I know is I am supposed to have one a little sooner than they hit retail. From what I can tell its gonna be pretty nice.

So like... now I have a decent GFX I have to update my drivers on a periodic basis? Just wondering... :p

Not really. Thought it wouldnt hurt either. ATI has a confusing driver package. best bet is to avoid downloading control pane ect and keep the older control panel. Dunno.

Benchmarks? What for? I just want to play some games ;)
Heh, I don't think BG2 will change much with your new hardware Kaiser :p Congrats anyway ;)

I just got specs close to yours; just exchange the X800 with a WD Raptor :D

They're still offering two packs: One with CCC and one with the old Control Panel.

Actually I was referring to him being on Dial up. Where he'd want to avoid updating control panel for a faster download ;p

You have lost the fanboy image I'm afraid. You only get to keep Ultra fanboy mode when you go out and buy a high end PC :) unfortunately you havent bought new tech in a while so its now a lesser fanboy! but thats ok! lesser fanboys are probably the smarter of the bunch! :rotflmao: because they dont waste nearly as much money :smash:
