Question by Lewis R
Hi, I would just like to know if this is a worthwile upgrade from a nvidia 8600GTS, Thanks.
From benchmark results, my opinion would be yes, this is a much faster card.

Crossfire by Chris
I recently bought the Gigabyte DS3P motherboard from Aria, and am using a nVidia 8800GT. I've always stuck with nvidia in the past, and know little about ATI. I have three questions:
1) How much better (faster) is this card with the newer FPS games such as Crysis and UT3
2) Would this card handle the nVidia physx ok (such as physical maps on unreal tournament 3), being an ati card
3) Seen as my board can support upto 3 graphics cards in crossfire, would two of these be twice the speed as one? I ask this because I know nVidia SLI does not always work this way unless you have an nForce board.
1. not much at this level
2. no - not being a nvidia card.
3. Not twice as fast, results can vary depending upon application.
Bridge connector lack of by Len
Bought two of these cards to use in crossfire but no bridging cable was provided. If this is the norm, can i purchase on from you? If not, where can i get one and for how much? I'm a nooby to crossfire so any help is appreciated.
Great card... by Someone
The Asus model that I got was *not* the one with the ATI reference cooler that's in the picture above - it's like the one pictured on the slightly cheaper ATI version - it's got an enourmous gold heatsink on it and it's *miles* better than the reference cooler - reports on the 'net say that sucks and that the card can go up to 90C or so under load, and doesn't idle much cooler either. (although ATI say it's designed to take those kinds of temps)
The enourmous cooler that this one's been built with keeps the temperatures *much* lower than the reports on the 'net say. For example, when I'm playing a Win DX game at 1600x1200 with *everything* turned right up with 8xAA and 8xAF (Far Cry at 70-150FPS), the card maxes out at about 60C with no overclocking (hell, the card's so powerful, anyway - there's no point :) ) - and the fan is *really* quiet on this card, too - my card idles at around 40C.
I'm glad I got this one instead of the NVidia 9800GTX+ I was considering instead - I just hope that ATI will get their Catalyst Linux drivers sorted out pretty soon. Traditionally, ATI's Linux drivers have always sucked big time, but this has been changing ever since they were bought by AMD - they've released a lot of the tech specs and details of their cards now, and the drivers are improving at quite a fast rate, now. :)
A great card - much recommended!
