    No such thing as Physix, its PhysX and nVIDIA has dedicated hardware in its GPU's for this. As for it died, google the PC game Bullet.

    G92(b) is not the same as the GT200 core...

    I was gonna tear the rest of your comment apart piece by piece, but its better, and a LOT faster, to just say, sell your computer, and never touch another. Do us that favour please.

    Hey Steve, its refreshing to see the people that actually do work on this site replying to its readers. LOVE the site btw. Are their any well known sites that you know of that fudge results, or favour one brand over the other? Of course I'm not asking for names. I'm just curious, because this bias talk annoys me.

    I currently have 18 tech sites bookmarked (not including the ones that i find while Googling), so when I'm looking for new hardware, it can take me hours to review it. All this talk about Tom's and two guys named Kyle or w/e seems pretty silly with SO many sources out there on the internet. My motto is, read as many review/articles as you can find, then make your decision. For example, Techspot is my second bookmark after Fudzilla (i like to start with short one page articles/news to start my day), but that doesn't mean I live by what Techspot or Fudzilla says.
  3. as long it plays the game. thats all i care. spend too much on a gpu is also a horrible decision. peace out

    Its a load of crap that's all it is. All the sites I know of are very reputable. Guys like Kylie from HardOCP do an excellent job and as far as I can tell, just tell it as it is!

    Can I ask what you are doing on a tech site if you clearly don't care? Have you ever owned a high-end graphics card because they kick ****.
  5. Im running the XFX HD6970 Black edition and it rocks, but then I have the AMD badge, T-shirt & tattoo :), the only thing I wish for is to pay $ prices rather than £s in the UK cost me £306.00 = $498.00 :(

    NM peace out dudes " I love the UK but love the $"
