When doing the 9800 GTX+ and 9600 GSO setup, try reinstalling the patch.

Pretty awesome playing NFS: Most Wanted in 3D. Though on max settings in SLI, and anaglyph 3D makes my cards run hot. They both got up to 88c (highest it went), and it seems like it's utilizing both cards around 90% (according to precision).

What do you reckon to the XFX ATI Radeon HD4890 1GB graphics card?

Watching one on eBay at the moment...

Not a bad card by any means. I think the GTX260 C216 and the 4890 are about on par with the 4890 pulling ahead by a (very) small amount. Is it Buy It Now! or do you have to win it? If the first, how much? If the second, what's the bid current at and time left?

EDIT: Also, what's shipping like?

1 day 20 hours left and it's @ 5.50. Postage is 8.65.

I'm looking to upgrade from my 9500GT.

It's looking good so far. How much would you pay for it?

Brand? Brand is always important when buying used in terms of reliability. Also, accessories included, etc.

XFX ATI Radeon HD4890 1024MB GDDR5.

It's gone up in price since my previous post.

Comes with all the accessories.

I'd pay a maximum of 150 USD. The card is kind of...underpowered for this gen, so used cards that don't run DX11 are quickly losing their value.

Sweet. As long as it beats my current 9500GT.

Actually, I put that to a max of 160 USD. The card has a lot of potential for OC'ing.
