The only 640MB 8800 is the 8800GTS, I believe. There is no 740MB card.

No such thing.

 

The 8800GTX only came in a 768MB model.

 

You have an 8800GTS.

thats on the old 8800. the new 8800's (G92 core) are quite better. even then. the old 8800's are still better than what the consoles offer.

Oh wait! So he did play with the old 8800GT? I hope so because after I read this review I was like "sh*t. That sucks, now I can't play it even with 1280x1024 and high settings" but when I saw what you told about 8800GT. I have the new 8800GT with G92 core so I really hope that it runs better with it.

I'm pretty sure he played on an 8800GTS, because I don't think they make 640MB 8800GT's. monocle.gif

Is my PNY G92 Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 better than 8800GTS sigh.gif ?

It is better than the 320 and 640 GTS, not the 512 GTS.

Please everyone, Look here. I put the link to a line up of the 8800 series cards so you know whats faster and whats not. Download GPU-Z to get all the facts of your video card. I can overclock my 8800 GTX to 630/1500/1000 and my GPU-Z results are Texture Fillrate: 42.3 Gtexels, Bandwith: 96.0 GB/s. So download RivaTuner and start tweaking your GPU's! (just be careful)

 

8800 Series Line up:

I have the exact same system as the reviewer, but has no one caught the obvious problem here??

 

His comment about lowering the default graphics options is USELESS as of now, because he does not indicate what he decreased from or even what he decreased to.

 

In other words, he could have been defaulted at some ungodly high resolution and detail and then lowered it to something completely acceptable.

 

Bottom line - this guy needs to edit his review to indicate WHAT the default was and WHAT he lowered it to.

 

Otherwise, it's a complete waste of a comment because it's completely and utterly subjective with no comparative merit, whatsoever.

eeeeeeeeeeeexacly!

 

that what i was always thinking when u guys ranted about how pi$$ed u r from having a 8800.

well, i have a x1900xtx 512mb and im holdding my pi$$ for a few more days before i find out what should i lower the game to.

 

however, darkny, the review stated toward the end something about view distance on 20% and traffic on pretty low.

 

"In five years' time, the PC version will be the definitive visual incarnation of Liberty City - playing with a draw-distance set around to 20 and traffic-density way low makes the prospect of those hitting the 100 exciting."

 

does that mean that this is how he ran the game?!

cuz that IS an indication of some sort... and not a positive one.

F*ck you sarcastic asshole. Don't you realize that no setting on PC is worst than the graphics on console? Low settings is equivalent to console graphics.

Thanks for your warm words. And I wasn't even being sarcastic. I rather ment major framerate drops, which do not happen on a console at all I believe. (I may be wrong, errare humanum est)

+ the guy who wrote the review god knows what state his PC is in, I bet he didnt even Defrag his Harddrive after installing the game which is a must, You must resist playing and defrag always gives u a performance boost + having a dedicated partition for gaming is a added boost running your OS in Performance mode added boost! so many tweaks you can do. But yea Defrag your HD is a must! before playing.

 

 

Alucard155 I used a Program called Snagit to take the PIC you could download the trail would love to see yours side by side so I can compare easier than looking at the specs on a website.

 

IF you get a chance it would be awesome if you could.

I just lost my optimism, that's all. This isn't enough to call me a sarcastic asshole.
