Re: Very Specific Math-Based PCIe 3.0 Question

said by kvn864:

I am still running 5870 and it still keeps up with 1920X1200 24 I have.

My GTX680 is somewhere in the middle of the country on an RMA extravaganza (curse you solar activity, neutrinos, cosmic radiation and/or some other such video card destroying invisibility!) and I'm missing it sorely as the 5870 I took out of the drawer to tide me over is getting positively hammered at 1920x1200. Skyrim, GTA IV, Crysis 2, electric boogaloo, et alia, are dropping frames faster than Sally Goodhead's Teflon Jr. prom dress.

And if that were not enough, certain ATi cards do not play well with ACD monitors during POST and I must use the HD3000 in a well overclocked 2600k to access the "BIOS Within The Bowels©" (an inspired, if not stinky, Asus innovation) of a P8Z77-V Deluxe. Yowza!

Man! All this science, I just don't understand...

EVGA. Things break, it happens, not to worry. They are a wonderful company to deal with. No hold time on the phone, and I mean one ring, no questions asked, very polite, and instant RMA approval. They seem to take customer satisfaction quite seriously and were sincerely apologetic about the card failure.

Asus, on the other hand...

I've had awesome experiences with EVGA. Did you pay for the cross-ship? It's worth it, IMO.

I didn't. Would have only made a few days difference. As long as Nvidia keeps designing good cards, I'll be using EVGA again.
