Default Re: New 4850 Arrived!

Wow, I am VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY, VERY DISAPPOINTED...I tried Test Drive Unlimited, Flatout:Ultimate Carnage, and GRID, and they all played EXACTLY THE SAME as they did with my 2600PRO!!!!! Jesus christ! What's the point of having a good card if you are getting the same frame rate as your old 2600????? Is it because of my CPU? If so, SOMEONE SEND ME A X2!

huh... good thing i got an new CPU than to stuck with my old 4800+, my friend has an 5000+ and he isnt being bottlenecked by his 8800GT, and the GTS is only slightly better than the GT right?

EDIT - didnt i tell you that it was going to bottleneck?
