i was gonna get NVidia, especially the Zotac 670 AMP!, but it would have done horrible on 3 screens. which is where the 7970 perform better at. the downside to the 670 AMP! is its a triple slot and it has massive heat pipes so SLI them is difficult. this is what turned me away from ASUS. it seems like every one of their cards wither NVidia or AMD is at triple slot. and they look ugly as hell. the ROG colors just make me cringe.

Yep just depends on your application. if your doing 3 monitor game playing you will need sli definately or a super high end single card. I play on 1 screen so my nvidia gtx 560 works perfect for me atm.

But a triple slot card is just ridiculous. how much power will it require i wonder. my 560 uses 1 75w connector. And the radeon 5830 my daughter will be using later uses 2x 75w connector and its suppose to be a lower performance than my 560.

maybe on certain games it would, but not most of em.

why do you need 3 screens for? if you're willing to waste money on 3 screens, you might as well hook your PC to a 52" 1080p HDTV (which cost around $600 at bestbuy, depending which brand you get).

well bad if you were a fan of playing PC games on Steam, but good to a person like me since I found out that you have to have Steam installed and running in order to play Tri Synergy Railworks 3 Train Simulator - 2012 which i'm wanting to buy and it's a physical copy too, not a download. ( if you're interested in the game too, it's $30 at frys.com and $26 at staples.com, they want $50 for it here on amazon...)

and who knows what other games will require Steam to play them.

I would agree, plus to me the view would have broken parts since there is usually a border on your screens. So playing on a 52+" screen would be awesome to me and would take less resources.

GW2 event update is here, and it is massive, but sounds like a awesome event to be killed in, i mean participate in....

Sha Gojyo says:
yep, less wires to deal with too, all you would need is 1 HDMI cable from PC to the 52" and you'd be all set.

Sounds optimum to me.

He always does.

At heart, he's an Xbot. He also thinks anyone who uses steam are sheep and stupid. His only argument is that anyone who defends the platform work for the company, which is possibly the lamest argument that can be made.

Anything that uses Steamworks requires Steam.

Bad for people that don't have constant net connections, great for people that do. There's a lot of extra features offered, which is a nice bonus.

It's better than Origin at least.

I have to download that as soon as I get home. I'm going to miss the initial event... but I'll catch it on Youtube somewhere.

Have to work late, which is a bummer.

oh and while you wait for Monster Hunter Ultimate on the Wii or Wii U, you should check out RaiderZ, it's free to play and It's an MMO, they unleashed it not too long ago for everyone to play insted of just Europe when it was in the beta stage. it's pretty much like Monster Hunter where you have to farm for items from mob drops to make better armor and weapons with them, altho you have to be at the right level to equip the armor and weapon you have the smiths make for you, there are also bosses you take down for special items for special armor and weapons and most of them you have to be in a party to take em down, or wait till you're at a high enough level to solo em.

Been playing since closed beta off and on, hehe.

Enjoying GW2 too much to spend a ton of time in Raiderz though.

ahh, I got bored of it when I got my character to lvl 18, it takes a long time to level, even when i'm doing an ongoing quest at the graveyard killing 10 grey wolves and getting 2000 or so EXP points per quest, it took more than 12 quests to get to 18 finally.

because playing pc games on tvs is worthless. doesn't look anywhere as good.

have you even tried it on a 1080p HDTV? to me it looks no different than playing on a regular PC monitor, only bigger picture.

Same here and I play in 1080.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 16, 2012 9:21:40 PM PST
yep. glad i took it off too.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 19, 2012 5:34:24 AM PST
I play on a 40" samsung and run all my games in 1920x1080 using supersampling when I'm able to.

My games look gorgeous.

if you want to spend a little more cash (not a ton)

www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-Details.asp?EdpNo=4960997&sku=V261-6972

it is a visiontek but it is a hd6970 for only $189 right now!

not a bad deal for a top gpu from the last gen for amd/ati.

;)
