AFAIK SLI is for Nvidia cards only. ATI has a similar technology for running two cards called CROSSFIRE, but this requires a motherboard with a chipset that specifically supports CROSSFIRE.

Both of my computers run great on 16/32/64 player servers, the second is lacking in ram so it gets some lag for the first 5 minutes of game play till it can load into the page file.

I'm playing in 1024x768 with most stuff set to medium, I think. I do ok on 16 and 32, but 64s arent very good.

I'm thinking about upgrading to a faster system with RAID'ed harddrives (losing all my class data and MP3s right before my last semester of undergrad to a harddrive crash sucked ass, at least it was under warranty), more ram and definitely a better video card, the current one would become my server if I can find an older LCD monitor from work that nobody cares about.

This is correct. You have to get a MB with an Ati chipset, and then Crossfire is a bit different then SLI in how it actually works. With Crossfire you have a "master" card that can be paired with another "slave" card of the same GPU type. Whereas with SLI, there is not master or slave.

Bah! Throw me up against ANY *single* Nvidia gpu except the new 7800GTX and my X850XT PE will stomp it into the ground and piss on it. Although the 6800 Ultra will keep up and maybe have a few FPS (as in 3-5) faster in OPEN GL games *ONLY*. Otherwise, if it is a D3D game, proceed with the stomping and pissing (such as farcry....battlefield 2....ect..).



ETA: When the R520 comes out (X900XT) it will bend over the 7800GTX without any lube.

"More bang for the buck with gaming and AMD. If you are doing video editing, or sound editing go with Intel, but AMD slaps Intel around like a bitch when using gaming apps."

Disagree. (Hey...I HAVE to.)

Hey, remember this?
This table provides all the necessary information about the new value CPU series from AMD and Intel. I’d only like to draw your attention to one thing. The ratings of Semprons are assigned according to different rules than the ratings of the Athlon XP or 64. For example, Athlon XP CPUs of the same ratings as Semprons have a higher performance due to a higher clock rate and a bigger amount of the cache memory. So why does AMD apply a new rating system to the Sempron? The answer is simple as soon as you take a look at the prices the manufacturers set for their products:



The official price lists are compiled in such a way that every Celeron D model has a Sempron counterpart with a rating equal to the frequency of that Celeron D. It is on this basis that AMD compares its Semprons with Celeron D models and claims superiority of its processors, though only in Winstone and SYSmark (AMD says nothing about how the Sempron compares to the Celeron D in games, for example).

Ah...the good old days.

Don't get me wrong, AMD has a damned good product...no argument here. BUT...check the processor temp sometimes and form your own conclusions. My extra $$ spent for an upgraded CPU cooling fan would even out any price increase if I was 100% neutral, here.

Regardless of all the mumbo-jumbo/smoke and mirror show that ALL big corporations toss at us....buy what you can afford at the time and pay attention to future upgrade compatability.

Just my two cents worth while surfing around ARFCOM tonight.
Rock on, all!

I aim to please.

The following was selfishly stolen by myself to make a simple point that ANYONE can gather data to support a claim and potentially sway opinion. If i worked for AMD...guess who i would be pushing for? It's just human nature not to bite the hand that feeds you. That noted, the following benchmarks WERE actually performed and I have NOT altered the results in any way. (Just making a point regarding the so called "spanking" AMD supposedly gives Intel. You'll see it's not always the case...even during the gaming benchmarks.)

All things considered, AMD and Intel are sharing a couple of strategies today with their flagship CPUs. For one, they are both "simply" remarking a server grade CPU and calling it a desktop unit. They are also asking for many hundreds of dollars for the privilege of owning one. Yep, it's "OUCH" any way you turn, huh?

Now, the test subjects:

AthlonFX 51 2.2GHz - Asus SK8N (nForce3 Pro) retail mainboard (using supplied AMD BIOS), (2X512MB) 1GB Legacy CAS 2.5 DDR400 (2.5,3,3,6), ATI Radeon 9700 Pro w/ ATI Catalyst 3.7 drivers, 40GB Maxtor ATA133 HDD, Windows XP w/SP1 and DX9B.

Athlon64 3200+ 2.0GHz - MSI K8T Neo (VIA K8T800) & Shuttle AN50R (nForce3 150), (2X512MB) 1GB Corsair CAS 2.0 DDR400 (2,3,2,5) ATI Radeon 9700 Pro w/ ATI Catalyst 3.7 drivers, 40GB Maxtor ATA133 HDD, Windows XP w/SP1 and DX9B.

Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition & Non-EE 3.2GHz/800MHz - Intel Bonanza Desktop (i875P), (2X512MB) 1GB Corsair CAS 2.0 DDR400 (2,3,2,5), ATI Radeon 9700 Pro w/ ATI Catalyst 3.7 drivers, 40GB Maxtor ATA133 HDD, Windows XP w/SP1 and DX9B.

AthlonXP 3200+ - Asus A7N8X (nForce2 Ultra 400), (2X512MB) 1GB Corsair CAS 2.0 DDR400 (2,3,2,5) ATI Radeon 9700 Pro w/ ATI Catalyst 3.7 drivers, 40GB Maxtor ATA133 HDD, Windows XP w/SP1 and DX9B.

Gaming Benchmarks



The Quake3 engine in its original configuration is one that has huge payoffs if the CPU has to pull across the memory bus for information. Intel and their Pentium 4 Extreme Edition are still hands down the king in the eyes of the Quake gods.

Looking at where the AthlonXP 3200+ used to come in, the new AthlonFX and Athlon64 have pulled a coup of their own. All of the new contenders show strong numbers. The original Quake 3 has turned into a very valuable CPU scaling benchmark even though the frame rates represented are not valuable as actual gaming references.

Jedi Night 2

Jedi Knight has proven to be a good CPU benchmark over the last year. It's also a Quake3 engine game, so you would expect to see the same scaling as above and we do. While the Pentium 4 EE does not run away with the show, it still scores a bit of a lead over the AthlonFX and Athlon64.

Uhh, 90% of the Intel CPU's are have seen reviewed are hotter then a comparable AMD, so there is no basis there. And all of the benchmarks that I base my opinion on are from hardware review sites and personal experience, not from an AMD or Intel marketing person.

If interested in the heat issues, copy this into your browser:
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/cpu/display/p4-temp.html

Intel's CPUs are DESIGNED to run at certain temps. AMDs may run cooler, but are they DESIGNED to run at a specific temp? (This is an interesting article...I learned a LOT reading this.)

By the way...my PCs are FREE. (I did, however just make a trade for a Dell Optiplex for an SKS...The dell is for surfing.) My free PCs just happen to include Intel processors...I boost performance by using upgraded memory and video cards...probably just like everyone else that tries to save the world from the evil Nazis or the slithering space aliens via thier PC. If I were using an AMD processor...I would still do the same thing.

I don't market for anyone...I'm a blue-collar worker...I just turn wrenches and grab the paycheck when they hand it to me.

I didn't mean for this to turn into a "Chevy vs. Ford" argument. Soooo......I'm about to upgrade my video card to 256...any suggestions or real user reviews out there?

I'm running:
Athlon 3200+ 939 core
Gigabyte Nforce 250GB motherboard
1 gig of 400mhz DDR in dual channel mode
Maxtor SATA 160gig drive
EVGA 6600GT Video card

It runs all my other games like a champ but I can only run Battlefield 2 @ 1024x768 w/ medium settings except high for special effects and textures. I also run 2x Anti-Aliasing with 100% drawing distance.

Too be honest I expected more out of BF2 but there is alot going on in that game.

Runs BF2 with a mix of low and med settings. I am thinking of getting a 6800 Ultra once the prices start coming down, and snice I only have AGP.

AMD Vs Intel

Step 1:
Go to pricewatch.com and pick two processors of similar price.

$270 - Pentium 4 650
$260 - Athlon 64 3700

Step 2:
Go to tomshardware.com and check out the 3DMark03 benchmark...

Athlon 64 3700 - 1018
Pentium 4 650 - 996

AMD wins, end of debate.

Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe
1024 Corsair XMS PC-3200

For a $500 upgrade, I'm satisfied.

Abit IC7 Max 3 motherboard
1gb Mushkin PC3500, 2-2-2-6 timings
Radeon X850XT PE 256mb video card
Audigy2 zs
Plextor DVD burner
Samsung 200gb hard drive
Razer Diamondback mouse
NEC 1760v 17" LCD monitor

--------------------

that ought to make for a pretty good portable machine to pack to the LAN parties, in addition to the system I play with at home, which I posted before.

AMD Sempron 2600 (s754, 1.6GHz)
Chaintech VNF3-250
Crucial 768MB PC2100 (512MB + 256MB)
Gigabyte Radeon 9200
Seagate 7200.8 80GB SATA drive
Sound Blaster Live! Platinum

I think the Seagate drive was the most expensive out of all the different parts (it was like $70.. h,

Next on my list of stuff to purchase is a gig of Crucial PC3200 Value RAM; from what I've heard people are getting that stuff up to 250-260MHz just with a little voltage boost. hock.gif
