    WaltC, it's just a little strange that sometimes you go ranting about something some people do when you yourself do the same thing in the same thread... ;)

    "They" being Nvidia fans or Nvidia themselves? Big difference between the two.

    It must be quite an experience living in your world. You are constantly babbling on about irrelevent nonsense and are now passing off others' total incomprehension of this babble as feigned?

    So, in other words, you can ramble on all you want whether or not it makes any sense and everyone who can't follow your often baseless logic is "playing dumb" ? That has got to be one of the best disclaimers I've ever seen.

    (All this notwithstanding I was responding to digi's link to nvidia's forum and not your usual tripe)

    Any particular reference to Nivida employees being "absolutely vampant about SLI over there"?

    Precisely. What do the posts on Nvidia's forums have to do with Walt's comments? I wasn't aware that the posters there were official mouthpieces for Nvidia. If they are, I stand corrected.

    Exactly. I don't understand why he linked to a forum.., I linked to Nvidia's own website with information related to SLI. There was nothing on Nvidia's site that was, as Walt would say, pugnacious. :wink:

    hey i have a question. im running a 4 year old p4 1.4G, intel mboard 4xAGP, , 1G rdram, 9700pro

    would i gain anything significant on my old rig by getting an x850 ultra to replace the 9700pro? (or whatever...that will be future crossfire compatible according to ati)

    im thinking it's new rig time, but just wondered if there's any 'bang' left in my old box? anyone know?

    did 8x AGP ever produce significantly better 'fruit' over 4x AGP?

    i currently never run AA,AF.

    Only with high res + AA/AF and crossfire is for PCIe cards only.

    Edit:
    I think you should wait until you upgrade your CPU/motherboard before you buy a new graphics card.
