...or a Firmware mod, so there is no need for oc software running in the background.  Wink

Firmware mod is better but riskier and he will lose his warranty.
Software overclock is more secure because if anything happens to the card,
they cannot verify that he overclocked because it's a pure software modification.
I doubt anyhing has changed Wink

I use a Sapphire Radeon 4830 OC'd to 680/1100MHz.
It's a good match for my relatively old rig. I guess I'll buy a new one next christmas though. Probably a 5830 or something similar, depending on the money situation. In any case there's not much point in buying an expensive gpu if my cpu is already a bottleneck.

Complete rig:
Asrock Dual-vsta + Am2CPU
A64 X2 5000+ @3GHz
2GB DDR2
Radeon 4830 @680/1100
500+500+160GB HDD
600W Zalman PSU
23" 16:9 monitor
Ideazon Merc keyboard
Logitech MX518 mouse


Unreal Tournament 3 seems to use the CPU a lot, and mine is bottlenecking the system, I get basically same performance with lowest and highest graphical settings, so I keep them maxed for eye candy.  msn011.gif

Take the HD if you want a silent fan. Go for nvidia only if you can manage to find a custom branded, silent cooling system. (the performance of the n260 is better by a little bit, but the cards are practically identical)

I'm not the gpu freak but,

NVidiad has more and better driver updates. Also easier to handle the games. But HD'series rocks too!  msn012.gif

I have no problems with UT3 on highest Settings. I'm not sure, in the UTTweaker you can set the FPS, mine is on 160 and I have no problems on serenity.

But my internetconnection still sucks!

Rig:
Inte Core 2 Quad  Q9550 2.83GHz
Zalman CNPS 8700 LED
ZOTAC GeForce 285gtx 1024MB
MB Gigabyte GA-X48-DS4 X48 S775 FSB
DDR2 2x2048MB  KIT OCZ Gold Edition
GEH power supply ATX Coba 650W
1000GB Western Digital Cavia Green 32MB Sata (split to 2 hard drives)
etc.

Thats not possible, with an 8800GT... I get about 80 to far over 100 fps (at high details) with an Nvidia 9600GT oc by 20%.

Try to check if you had frame rate smoothing activated, else you end up with 60fps also with your new card.

Code:
UTEngine.ini

[Engine.GameEngine]
...
bSmoothFrameRate=False

omfg, my owl friend! I have my old X1950PRO already and I would send it you 4 free if you want it. I could drive my FullHD-LCD with 35 fps (full details) If you set the resolution down to WXGA (1680x1080) it accelerate to 60 fps etc. And the best: The super silent blower reach only 0.4 Sone (Full Power).

I'm trying out Windows 7 64-bit and UT3 has become totally unplayable. I've got huge fluctuations in fps ranging from 80 to as low as 20 on my 8800gts. Even when the fps are good enough the movement just doesn't feel right.

The strange thing is that I'm playing through good old Bioshock that uses the same engine and it's working without a hiccup. HAWX works great even the buggy Cryostasis is working ok so far, it's just UT3 that has to be problematic again :(

edit: a bit off-topic, as a substitute for UT I'm playing Quake Live, if anyone wants to give it a try you can find me there under the same *nick: m4rt1ni

cheers Wink

@Martini: The operatin system topic doesn't belong here, but since you posted the fps of your 8800 it is fine. The OS discussion with Windows7 can be found here: Guests Area > General > Software & Driver > Topic: operating systems
The fps were fine for me with Windows7, even at max settings I had the 60 smoothed frames (didn't remove the smoothing wasted). There were lodading problems of all kind of files tough (menu and maps).

@Sova: Consider to send Fox some pocket money for a package.  Grin 20 fps...  Roll Eyes

Thanks, my foxy friend, but i think i'll buy new one by myself. I want to upgrade my comp completely, so i won't need to do it in near 2 years  Crazysmile1

I get this http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-104-GW

On saturday

Was thinking a 4870 but i want to try nVidia for a change. ATi does have problems with UT3 especially, such as frame drops when you are at a teleporter and other crap. I've not had so many problems with my 4850X2 but 2 GPU seem to have problems with other games, so i sell it and get nVidia for a change :)
