Earlier today, I was at Fry's looking around for some hardware, and I saw a display PC advertising the Core 2 Quad, and it had a 4870 (I think, whatever it was it had 2 fans), so I decided to try it out. The PC had UT3 and ET: QW, so I tried both, but man when I started playing UT3 I didn't want to stop, it was amazing seeing a game at very high settings at amazing framerate for once in my life.

Well, most anything is going to seem amazing compared to that X1300 your using.

Know what's really nice? Getting a game, and sliding everything to max without a second thought. =p

It's a very nice feeling. I had the same thing when I first started using my rig.

computernerd, I seem to recall you were/are working on a new build?

^ Me too. I know what its like, i was running a craptastic X300 for about a year before i upgraded to anything better. And that was only to a lowly 7300GT....

My last build was a huge leap for me graphics wise, from a 7300GT all the way up to a overclocked HD 3850!

Try a 2.2C2D/7300GS to a 4.0C2Q/GTX280 OCed. That first day was insane!

:vikki: That's nothing. Athlon64 2.4GHz/Radeon 9600 SE to an i7 920 (now at 3.6GHz!)/4870.
