how do you know if it's not feeding the gfx card enough power? I have a big power supply on hand but I really don't feel like installing it

Ihateyou, go for the 6850 dicrectCU TOP from asus, i have it and it's amazing. All the reviews say it's MUCH better then then the standard 6870 and it's cheaper plus it has extra headroom for even more OCing then what it comes with out of the box. I have it at standard settings to preserve life and so far the only time's it's failed to run games at a decent FPS is on games with shitty engines like oblivion which is based on the gambryo engine. It can run RAGE, Crysis 2 and many other games on max settings at 1680X1050 at decent fps (read 30+ fps), RAGE plays at 50-60 FPS contantly for example.

p.s. gambryo is a true shitfest, our university computers had the engine in raw form and it was SOOO buggy, I talked with other's who were using it and they told me how it was unstable, prone to random crashing (worked one moment and not the next for the exact same segment) and they often had to re-write parts of the engines code to get it work properly.

EDIT: check out this graphics card teir thing from toms hardware, it puts the 6850 near the top http://www.tomshardw...nce,3042-7.html

Too bad the next gen HD 7000 would require a mombo update to use since it's using PCI Express 3.0 on a good note 3.0 buses can use 2.0/2.1

Graphics always suck, every new game is awful just keep your old card and play the first half hour of every new game on the lowest settings for like a half hour until you realize it's awful but no big deal you downloaded it illegally anyway so just toss it in the trash and play the web version of bejeweled until you pass out on your desk from exhaustion

I disagree, this game looks legit good

that is actually an accurate representation of a totally clean and sterile German skate park design

I wish they didn't show/explain how they get across those metal things/gaps, you just accept that they get across much like a first person shooter where they just sort of hover over it and get to the other side

NO *arpargus shrieks, jumps on his chair while bonzi leans forward to his hands on the table* they will laugh at my GREAT post. my great post and my great skate 3 videos. They'll all look back and think, 'what a great guy bonzi_buddy was. what a great humour'. *looks intensively at frightened aspargus, aspargus' eyes go back and forth from bonzi's spiky electrical blue hair and his serious black eyes. a large vein bulge's in bonzi's forehead*
