That’s the card I have! It’s pretty nice isn’t it. And I can play crysis with everything on high (Not ‘Very High’ Just ‘High’) it plays pretty smooth at 1024x768. And the specs on the rest of my computer is AMD Athlon X2 6000+ @3.01GHz dual core 64 bit, 2GB ram, I don’t think any other specs matter that much for speed, But when I went from 1GB to 2GB of ram I noticed a MAJOR difference in everything…
But congratulations on your purchase of a fine card. It can play all other games I’ve played on high at 1280x1024, Like bioshock and world in conflict.
And about the ubuntu drivers, it just prompted me to install them with restricted drivers manager, so I clicked on it and it downloaded and installed them for me… Was easier than I was expecting… I am slso pretty sure nvidia has linux drivers on their site too.
Social… where are you buying your laptops, dude? ¯(º.o)/¯
which game is better , bioshock or crysis ?
As far as pretty graphics and advanced features go, Crysis. Bioshock has a much better story though, even if it is a short game.
BTW, Crysis ought to run a little bit better once they finally get that patch out “within two weeks of the release”
Oh yeah, and you can enable the very high features in Crysis on Windows XP. Google it. I’ll post pics in a little bit
Crysis is awesome. Best graphics ever if you can run it :spin: The story is ok, its a bit too “american hero” for my taste though :no: The gameplay is perfect. And things like “Frank’s Garage” and the dog food are probably just inside jokes of the dev team or something. They are human you know, sense of humor, errors, utter non-sense … they dont bother me.
I hate shooters. The only shooters i could ever stand were Perfect Dark and Crysis. They must be good somehow… :yes:
Sorry, back on topic :o
I have two 8800GT’s they have the absolute best price/performance ratio. If you want to upgrade its the best choice. I can ‘almost’ run Crysis all at very high at 1920x1200, no AA of course. To play for real i have to lower some options if i keep the resolution at 1920x1200. I hope the patch and Vista SP1 will allow me to play all very high, but i doubt it lol.
Although, the thing about these new cards; They are very expensive. I mean one can buy a fairly decent laptop for the same price of an 8 series nvidia card.
in jordan , i have bought it for 140 US dollars .
i have tried far-cry , it’s graphics quality was good , but i wonder why most of the players stick with graphics , gameplay and BGM and story IMHO is much better creteria .
the game HL2 was runned with everything max … everything , and it didn’t jitter
Lost Planet , plays perfect now
since i have seen COD4 on the net , seems that i will chose this one , and test it .
and after i complete it , i will finish bioshock .
