    1. Oh sirs Nvidia was on top with the 9800 but ATI is blowing everything away with the 4870X2 the 200 series is actually

      Specs (that matter 295 GTX)
      # Core clock: 576MHz
      # Stream Processors: 480 (240 x 2) processing cores
      # Memory Clock: 1998MHz
      # Memory Size: 1792MB
      # Memory Type: GDDR3
      # RAMDAC: 400 MHz
      # Max Resolution: 2560 x 1600

      Specs (that matter 4870X2)
      # Core clock: 750MHz
      # Stream Processors: 1600 (800 x 2) Stream Processing Units
      # Memory Clock: 1800MHz
      # Memory Size: 2GB
      # Memory Type: GDDR5
      # RAMDAC: 400 MHz
      # Max Resolution: 2560 x 1600

      4870X2: isssssss about what 4 times faster due to memory type alone, More on board memory. Memory clock 198 MHz slower if it were GDDR3 but its GDDR5 so ya ATI still faster

      295GTX: is all around slower and less memory…. Way less stream processors (puke)

      For those of you who do not know what stream processors are… Picture a sewer system(1 stream processor=1 pipe) more stream processors more shit can get through… The ATI card has over 1000 more.

    2. The beta that we 3 are not in has a lot of promise from what i hear. BUTTT i think solo is gonna be terribly hard early game. But then again its still in Debug mode and from what i hear of course not from experience mahirim mob spawns suck they only get goblin scouts, Kobold scroungers and trolls. OF COURSE THIS IS JUST WHAT I HEAR.

      From what i dont know from not playing the beta this game is miles ahead of many other games are upon release. But yes it needs time im not sure if it will release for sure 25th

    3. VINCE!! i was just teamed up with him y? if you know if ask if he knows some one not named Epoch Evolution cause thats this guy i heard is in the beta that is not me

    4. Connor I left a few good messages for you on here but my comments are being blocked and ryan is asleep so I cant call him. this is killing me.

    5. ok tihs is what I said 1 hour ago Connor: You were not with me then. I was not Snufferson Jones ๐Ÿ˜€

    6. You didnโ€™t see those arrows I was putting in the heads of those mobs. You didnโ€™t see anything but pure glory I hope. That was not mys tyle. That was not Snufferson Jones ๐Ÿ˜€ hahahhahaha

    7. @Steven Renwalds: I was a hair away from fixing it… I still have not had the fine opportunity to listen to the cast. In fact, I’m still at work ๐Ÿ˜ 40 min, huh? Some Boyz are gonna pay ๐Ÿ˜€ My money is that Ben just didnt do enough talking.

      This is not true. GDDR5 is not faster than GDDR3. More stream processors is good, but it doesn’t matter how many the card has, if it does not have the processing power to use it up. Check out some benchmarks. You will notice that the GTX280 is up there with the Radeon.

      ATI cards are doing great.

      I would still recommend an Intel processor simply because you will get a better processor at the same price of an AMD processor.

    9. Nice post digital storm. Pretty fascinating. I haven’t been keeping up with the latest, so this is good info.

    10. Oh yeah i completely agree that Intel is better… as for video cards i know there is not a lot of variation in power with all the new cards out there today all i was sayin is that the ATI cards are better right now

    11. That list doesn’t include the GTX 295. But based on the other benchmarks of nvidia cards, i doubt it will be much faster than the GTX 280. So yea, ATI > NVidia atm. Although, I do like EVGA’s Nvidia card warrenty. Lifetime warrenty, even if you overclock the card!

    12. Hello Smack talkers,
      Super hero capes, guns, hot sause you guys got it all on my fav podcast.
      I ran ati for a long time years ago now and the stats between the ati and nvidia card then look like all the stats i see in the post above, close but ati always seemed to be ahead then. Here is the thing that *ucked me right off every few weeks or so I would update the drives for my ati card and it would with out fail *uck my games up. And the machine was new it’s not like I was limping some old piece of crap along and then I would be reinstalling old drivers so *hit would work. From reading the posts above it sounds like you have many peaple using both types of cards, so I’m wondering if the software you get with the cards it on par now? I would like to get the best bang for my buck on the next card, but I never want to find myself looking at my beloved computer with a hammer WANTING TO SMASH!!! or thinking about flying to ati HQ and attaching a smashed video card to a programers head with a nail gun. It’s just not healthy.

    13. @Longshoticus, long time no write! Good to see you around. Thought you were hating on me after I read your email many moons ago. ๐Ÿ˜€

      About the graphics cards, I am not an ati fan any way you cut it. I’m devited ti Voodoo ๐Ÿ˜€ <– I actually think they are back to some small degree, or else somebody bought the name rights.

    14. I never have problems with my computers that I build. I build pauls computers sometimes, as well as mine. For some reason he always has problems with his. hahahah. No joke.

    15. @longshot… ya i know ATI used to have shitty drivers but they are all gravy now ever since ive had my 2900XT they have been fine i had 1 problem with artifacts on my screen but they put new drivers out in like 2 days after those

    16. Hey, no not hating on ya. I thought that was pretty cool but I was a little gun shy after that because I ring these off fast and normally I dont spell check or proof so some times I sound like an angry retard! Wit da not so good type takin.
      Thanks for the info on the software guy’s. I will consider ati on my next buy now.
      FYI AOC has chopped the nuts off gem stacking. I still play about 60%aoc 40%cod4. I find the AOC cambat fun, I say that because I have no other mmo exp. to say better or worse I just enjoy it. And with the sever merges there seems to be alot of peaple around to hunt. So if your in a gaming dead zone until Darkfall drops consider firing up your old acounts and take a look at how AOC has grown.
      You have to think back afew shows for this one. Who tucked their kid in like a football and went after the car thief on foot? My hat is off to you. No gun, No backup, No choice but to pursue, the world needs more peaple like you.

    17. @Longshot, sorry about that… didn’t mean to poke fun. I misspell all the time when knocking out comments, twits, etc. We love the participation, so please speak your mind. And if you look like an angry retard, just listen to the casts and think about how I sound. haha. Plus I write that way too. ๐Ÿ˜€ Stay active! Let us know what you’re thinking, and what you want to hear.

    18. @long, ya AoC was fun but now that i have not participated in DFO wink wink i dont think i would be able to go back to an auto targeter like most other MMO’s and have fun with pvp after not experiencing DFO
