Owned, Did you read my thread and try to understand it at all?
Perhaps I'll recap, once again-
1 - Did i mention the 9800XT or pro at all - reading though my last post...nope. -pwned
2 - Did I mention that the FX series was slower - reading through .....nope -pwned
3 What I did say, in another way, is that in the early benchmarks with Half Life 2 with the FX5900, even the Radeon 9600 won agaisnt it speed wise - Why..
Because the FX series cannot do DirectX 9 great at all, it's compleatly lousy.
Now Half Life 2 disables DirectX 9 features when being played on a Geforce FX and reverts only to DirectX 8. Oh, yes, you can enable it - but the frame rate is crap. Only in benchmarks where the FX wins in DirectX 9 games is when it's simply not running in DirectX mode.
I perfectly aggree, other area's of gamming it's fine, but pal, look here and read the review, you'll see what I mean. Here's the benchmarks with ATI v nVidia, with and without DirectX9 features enabled. See how the Radeon 9600 kills even your mighty FX5950.....
Right as for your over the top post - they weren't needed, because benchmarks is not what I was refering to. Read the entire article and you'll get what I mean.
Also, this is not the only DirectX 9 game that this happens to, others do this to my friend.
Now your PWND, or whatever that is. lol
