Yes I just installed it and ran ArmA2 Maxxed out it was running perfectly.. This card is a good one.. I also installed the 480GTX into my nephews PC and his new 1TB HDD..

yes it is a VERY Fine Mouse.. They have better feature models this is the lowest one but I had figured 3200dpi is all I need.. It really helps in FPS the most..

I would Highly Reccomend Gigbyte Mice from now on as long as they stay competively priced..

I am debating if I should go SLI or Not??

Not sure if the added card would be a benifit??

SLI has no real benefit with either DCS or BMS, and you can already max out LOTRO and Arma2, so I would think it's worth waiting for EDGE to make your decision (or just upgrading to a more powerful card when the next big software thing is released).

what is edge?? well we shall see what the FPS are when I get my triple screen back in action in a few months.. I am thinking the FPS will drop once I go back to the higher rez..

Eagle Dynamics Graphics Engine, the upcoming DCS engine.

Is there any news on this update?? perhaps some screenshots

Nope. The unofficial estimate is next year, and I'm guessing that it will coincide or be right behind the move to 64 bit only. The move to DX11 is also anticipated, unofficially.

Yes that is the Acronym for nVidias 2 or 3 vid cards at the same time.... Scalable Link Interface..

Thanks. I didn't realise it referred to a linking interface. In fact I didn't realise what it stood for, but that's nothing new for me. :lol:

Please let me know if you get any performance benefit in BMS or DCS. Being that I have the same card, I would be very interested to hear the results.

Hey HomeFries I have a question for you.. I was wondering if you could post some screenshots of your Settings in LOTRO and what FPS you get on average screenshot would be nice..

I am asking because in most all other games my FPS are high with LOTRO they seem to be stuck at 38 with 3D Off, I am wondering why they are so low??

Here are my settings and some screens in West Bree:

As you can see they are quite low and I was wondering what could be causing this.. I do Not have vSync enabled in game or in NCP?? I am not sure what is going on or if this is some normal FPS with this game and card.. I would have thought they would at least be in the 50-60FPS Area..

NVM, I figured it out.. I had looking in the options screen then saw Troubleshooting in there was a FPS Limniter.. I set it too unlimited now my FPS are around 70-90..

Well I am in the process of getting my Virtual Pit an upgrade an small facelift.. I bought some VGA Wall Plates and wires so I can get these dangling wires from the ceiling to the floor straightened up and looking proper instead of a jerry rigged setup.. I am also going to get the 120v line fixed and run a plug from the socket to the Surge protector I have nailed up in the ceiling joists.. I will be going to Home Depot tomorrow or Ill get my sister to get them.. I need to make a parts list..

Hopefully this will give a more finished work and besides these wires hanging from the ceiling are just ugly looking and messy..

I just need to order a Display port to VGA Apapter which I am going to do now..

I put a bid in for a Non Working projector. Now the guy claims the red light comes on but will not boot up.. I am going to bet either it is the bulb or hopefully a Easy fix to send to acer for repair and voila I should get a working projector on the cheap..

Now this is a gamble as I have no idea what is Factually wrong with the projector.. I am just going to gamble I can get a quick fix with a new bulb or a cheap repair from Acer.. But in order to contact Acer you need a serial Number to call email support.. I guess to keep the emails to a minimum and not getting flooded with everybody and their mother emailing them..
