Will the 9 series cards make the 8 series cards cheaper?

Q: Will the 9 series cards make the 8 series cards cheaper?

will the 9 series make the $220 8800gts drop to something like $100 or will it still be $200?

Preferred Solution: Will the 9 series cards make the 8 series cards cheaper?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Will the 9 series cards make the 8 series cards cheaper?

eventually, and then the 10 series will do the same to the 9 series, rinse and repeat. basically as long as its one of the fastest cards the gts will be expensive, when it becomes obsolete (relatively) its price will drop.

from the question i assume you are looking to upgrade, if you want to only spend $100 then i'd say your best bet is an OCed 7600 GT, lotsa bang for your buck, i can run FEAR with pretty high settings with just one of them.
but really, what are you looking for?

Right was just looking up some graphics cards for a customer and im wonering how is the 9 series thats supposed to run all games on high settings a lot cheaper than the 8800GTS/GTX/Ultra.?


A:9 series gfx cards.?

Yeah, it is cheaper but it is not better than the 8800 GT/GTS//GTX/Ultra. Price and perfomance wise, it is a great buy but if you're a serious gamer, why not buy an nVidia 8800 GT. I think that it is more powerful and offers more value for money. The ATi Radeon HD 3870 is also worth checking out.

For all of those 48xx series users whining about GPU temps. Here is the fix "until 8.7 drivers", I only increased my fan to 43%. It lowered my GPU temps from 80 degrees Celsius to 50 degrees Celcuis. Forums - View Single Post - Radeon HD 4850 Heat issues

Funny - I was whining about my nVidia 8800GTS KO Edition - almost the same thing - at *idle* the damn thing runs 65-68 lol....

I found out the fan runs at 37% until it gets called to - at like 85 or so. So I used a version of RivaTuner (made for eVGA) to create profiles for my fan speeds.

Now, at idle I get 48, and when I was playing Crysis last night I was barely breaking 60 with 4XAA and 1600 x 1200 res.

Their are always advantages, 2 series pending on the exact model.Newer manufacturing techniques, power consummation, more memory, faster memory, higher memory interface (bit). 4 Series DX11, 2 DVi and 1 hdmi out multi monitor support, and the afore mentioned. It would really depend on what you mainly use your card for. Since the card you have is a pretty good one to start with. JMO Fabe

Hi there,

My computer came with a VIA/S3G UniChrome IGP card, which is apparently a Graphics/Video Card with onboard video (or the other way around, video w/ onboard graphics) Now, this is a terrible card- it can barely play any modern games. I want to get a new graphics card, but I'm concerned if I install a new Graphics Card, that because of the onboard video, it will affect this greatly, or if I actually need a video card instead of graphics. What do I actually need, and will it adversely affect anything on my PC.

go into battery settings and change to high performance, also most the time with laptops specs dont handle like there advertised due to battery and "saving space" issues.

When rendering with my AMD A8 laptop with intergrated gpu the rendering times in Sony Vegas 12 accually was shorter than the video with OpenCL gpu acceleration on But with
Cuda acceleration on with my GTX 660 with around 950 CUDA cores the rendering times are about dubble the video lenght

A:AMD cards Vs nVidia cards? Got very confused by a thing

You didn't mess up on anything but to be honest AMD has gotten better with encoding speeds over the years

I just recently bought a new GTX 780 ti I have not done any video yet i have been doing benchmarks but i will find out soon enough

the time it normally took me to render and burn with 2x7970's were about 20 minutes depending on what it was doing some took longer then others to about 30 minutes but actually cut down to 25 minutes

Direct Compute and Open GL are on fire right now with AMD cards they use it very well and Bitcoin Miners seem to love how much over Nvidia they run

For me it's doesn't mater as long as it suits my needs but other people may differ with the way AMD has been changing GPU Architecture people have been going red and also the prices have gone up so if you are looking to change now you need to look for a card worth the coin because they gone up 20% matching Nvidia prices

I was wondering what makes NVidia's quadro cards so much more expensive than even the high end gaming GPUs? I know there more for the "workstation" PC and are used more for 3d modeling and such with programs like 3ds max and maya but what exactly do these quadro cards have that the high end gaming GPUs don't? More cuda processors? Higher Memory bus width? The reason I am asking is because I recently purchased a GTX 780 SC and was thinking of getting into either 3ds max/maya in the near future. Would purchasing another GTX 780 and putting into sli configuration help with programs like max and maya? Thanks for the any help!

To answer your question, the Quaddro series of cards or FirePro for AMD are different from the gaming cards because they re-purpose the cards for straight up compute. The software included with them and drivers along with some additional features make them poor at gaming but better in the fields of compute/cuda dev/opencl/etc. Also those cards in most cases also cram more RAM than the standard card models for higher rendering among other things.

You will be fine with a 780 for the basics of 3DS max and maya and adding another would be somewhat beneficial later down the line but you can definitly use your superclock GTX 780 for this and get decent performance for these programs.

I am going into my fourth year of architecture school and I am building a desktop. I plan on using my system for Adobe cs5, CAD, Revit, 3ds max, Maya, Ecotect, Virtual Enviroment, Rhino, and Grasshopper. I am having trouble deciding on a graphics card. Is it necessary to have a workstation graphic card to do 3d modeling with these programs? If so, what type of card would you reccomend, Nvidia or ATI?

List of requirements given by the school:
Intel® Core? i7
12 GB+ Memory
2TB Hard Drive
Dual 20"+ monitors
DVD±RW Drive
Dedicated ATI or nVidia video adapter with at least 1-2GB memory
Wireless Network Adapter
Windows 7 ® Home Premium (64-bit)

A:Workstation graphic cards vs. consumer cards

The last question is the easiest - I would go with nVidia because their CUDA processing engine accelerates many of the applications you use. I know Adobe CS5 and Maya take advantage of it but don't know about the rest of the applications you listed.

Adobe CS5 added acceleration for multiple applications with the Mercury Playback Engine which is designed specifically for more recent nVidia cards with the CUDA feature set.,2770.html

Third party review and recommendations for use with CS5 (the card list starts about half way down the page)

CUDA (see more info below about CUDA) supported graphics cards (note that the GeForce or mainstream and gamer cards (for desktop and laptop PCs) are listed near the bottom of the page:

nVidia provides information touting how much their cards accelerate Adobe CS5, including general description about CUDA with internal links to more info for advanced users:a

Here are a couple of reviews on workstation cards you might find informative:

Workstation Shootout: Nvidia Quadro 5000 Vs. ATI FirePro V8800,2701.html

AMD FirePro V9800 4 GB: Eyefinity Meets Professional Graphics,2780.html

The choice between workstation vs. gaming cards is a little more difficult. The higher end gaming cards are very similar to the lower end gaming cards, the difference is primarily in the drivers and service. Workstation drivers have been more finely tuned to the kinds of work done in WS applications - but this can have a signficant impact on performance for those applications. Morever, with the higher price you pay buys you better, generlly quicker support for dealing with issues.

I think the choice must depend on how and how much you use the cards. If you use the applications for several hours a day, the higher productivity of the workstation station cards may pay for the higher cost several times over. Otherwise you might do just as well with the gaming cards.

If you decide to go with gaming cards, you might find some helpful information on upgrading video cards at, but they have no information on workstation cards:

yes..... you can run the 2 9800's in SLI & the 3rd card (GTX285) will serve as a physX card...(though highly overkill)

In the manual, it references Multi Media Card (MMC) but in the stores, the only ones I can find are the SD cards. All of the memory card readers have one slot for the SD and the MMC cards.

I am wondering if SD and MMC are backwards compatible or not.

any help would be cool.

A:Are Multi Media Cards and SD cards the same?

Not sure how accurate this statement is:
MMC Card
Weighing less than two grams and taking up the area of a postage stamp, MultiMediaCards are ideal for use in portable devices like digital audio players, digital cameras, and PDAs. In addition to its distinct size advantage over other removable memory, the MultiMediaCard's low power draw makes it highly suitable for battery-powered mobile applications. MMC cards will fit into devices that have an SD slot - MMC cards are the same size, and are often much cheaper than SD cards, because they're an 'open' standard (SD card manufacturers have to pay royalties, and MMC card manufacturers don't!).

I didn't think they could be interchanged though......perhaps someone else can shed some light. I use SD Cards.

I'm trying to run a game in High Def and it says I need to upgrade to GEFORCE 3 or better. Is this a video or a graphics card and what is the best choice to fix this problem.
I've read posts on graphics card and have it down to a choice between GEFORCE and ATI Radeon 3870 that Im having a hard time making since I don't know much about this yet and my comp is at least 5 yrs old. Running an EMachine 3400, 512 mb with windows xp and extra membory added. And which is better the 9600 Geforce or the 3?

A:GTX 200 Series vs ATI 4000 Series...

If you want 8800GT's, the prices have dropped to about $150 average on newegg which is great considering i got mine for $250. Personally, I'm against SLI, but if you're for it and would have to make a purchase now, go with 2 8800GTS g92 as they're averaging about <$200 (MSI's 8800GTS is on newegg for $177) and they provide some performance over the 8800GT. Since the 9800GTX is basically the same performance as the 8800GTS but more expensive, then forget that.

If you can wait a while to make a purchase, I've heard that the newer 9800GTX+ will have higher stock clocks that will deliver better performance with its newer drivers too, and this card comes out in mid-July. It's supposed to be priced around $230 and it's chip is built on 55nm process. This card sounds attractive, but we'll have to wait for solid reviews of the card first.

ATI... I don't like them, so I'm sorry but I can't tell you anything about them.

I'm getting really pissed off for the newer games. Some of them requires an Direct X 10 video cards to run it properly. Do you guys think 7900 SLI can run newer games smoothly such as Lost Planet?

I'm sure you will loose some of the gee wiz graphics not using a DX10 card but so far most game makers have been making games that use either DX9 or DX10. As far as lost planet is concerned here is whats posted on their official forums as supported vid cards.

I have a new laptop with a 16" screen. When I open up the solitaire game the cards are so tiny, the cards are about l l/2 inches tall.
I have tried enlarging the text and all other obvious enlargements but for some reason solitaire cards stay small.

Could this be that the game is just smaller with Windows XP, or maybe on a laptop?

Hi! I'm looking to build a new PC. Here is the link:

Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core, GeForce GTX 1070 8GB G1 Gaming - System Build - PCPartPicker

I have been looking around and can't find anything. I have the type of parts I want, (Ex: i7 6700K, GTX 1070, 16GB RAM, etc)

Please note that if you change any parts, I will not accept AMD parts as AMD is not the best. Their architecture stinks. It's inefficient. (No offense to anyone)

I'm not asking you to build a new PC for me, I'm just asking for advice on this PC.

I will be doing heavy gaming and video editing and schoolwork in case you were wondering.

Thank you in advance!


A:Any way to make it better/cheaper?

Video editing makes the i7 a must but if not OCing save 40 bucks with the non K version. If you want to trim the price more it will depend on your gaming preference. You could cut that price and still be able to game, just at lower settings withe a cheaper GPU

I have a Netgear DG834GT wireless router which works fine with my PCs which have G series network adapters. But with my laptop with an N series network adapter the signal disconnected every 20 seconds then reconnected; this was only a problem using it at home – everywhere else it connected well. I solved this by using a G series PCMCIA when at home. So far so good.

Now my wife has been given a work laptop which has the same problem. She can’t use a PCMCIA because the laptop has been set to stop her installing the software. So… should we get an N series router? Is there any reason it wouldn’t let us both work PCMCIA-free? And if we should go ahead, any advice on what specs I should get or avoid?

The systems use different case and mainboard designs -- and may even be made by different companies.  The answer in all likelihood is no.

Hey everyone. I currently have a GTX 580 and I want to upgrade that. I was going to get a GTX 770 but I'm now considering waiting for the GTX 800 series. Is it worth waiting for the 800's and when do you think it will be released?

A:GTX 800 series?

Well supposedly it's coming next year, but since crystal balls don't exist who knows exactly when, maybe in Q1 maybe not, maybe way longer,or if they'll be delayed even further, or how good they'll really be, or if they'll have bugs, or how much they'll cost. If anyone really knows at this point they are not likely allowed to disclose details beyond what I'm sure you've searched on Google otherwise they'd lose their job; and even what may be known now may change as changes and delays happen all the time.

In the end, it's up to you, if you need a new or better card now, buy now, if you want to wait there will always be another generation or series in the works, if the wait is confirmed to be short then sometimes waiting a bit is not a big deal, when the wait is longer waiting may not make sense.

If it currently has Windows XP SP2 installed, you need to install the SP3 upgrade before you do a custom scan at Windows Update/Microsoft Update.

A custom scan will probably display over 100 post-SP3 high priority updates.

It depends on what you are referring to, there is not real issues with the R series GPU's in terms of display output. Most of the associated problems people are having involve a few things:

Some of the 4k monitors (The AOC for instance) use a very odd way to refresh which caused the display to flicker on the R9 series GPU's which was resolved in a recent patch.

Some high refresh displays using DP

and some others

However I would not worry, most of the problems if any are fixed via patches and catalyst revisions. If the manufacturer has to update something like the this its normally involves something like with their own software or certain things in environments not working together properly. I would not worry, I have done nothing to my PowerColor R9 290X trio and they all work great.

Hiya there.
I recently installed Catalyst 7.10 software for my awful god awful graphics card which i wish to burn.) I installed for the purpose that it was taking 256mb from my system memory and was causing me to really lag up in Guild Wars- So i went on to the Integrated Graphics-UMA Frame Buffer section and from a drop down list where it was set to 256mb i tried it with 32, 64 and 128mb settings and clicked apply but everytime they reset to 256mb. This was quite frustrating as you can image. Any suggestions would be appreciated cheers and btw does changing the screen resolution mean that i wont lag as less on gw since im on 1024x768 i think and i should be on 800x600 and what about the refresh rate? thanks

I'm assuming that it does have power and that the scanner is on correct?
First disconnect the scanner and reconnect to ensure proper connection. To wit, a visual inspect is not good enough...
Also, when you reinstalled did you do a complete uninstall first? If not do that. Else, you are really just adding a new layer of paint over the old cracking layer, eh?

My name is Todd and I work at Dell's corporate headquarters. My team works with customers via blogs and forums. I saw your post and wanted to see if I could help.

Have you tried any other USB devices in that port to see if it happens with any other devices and isn't specific to the HP printer?

You may also want to go into your system setup (F2 during startup) and check the boot settings for the system. That system may be incorrectly trying to boot from a USB device and until it isn't able to it "hangs".

Let me know if other devices have the same problem or if you've been able to resolve the problem.

Right, I had been debating with myself whether or not I'm going to get one of these monsters, when I discovered that I'll need to upgrade my power supply. Having asked around a bit, I was told I'd be wanting in upwards of 650W, which sounds like an awful lot. I don't want to have matched the cost of my new graphics card in electricity bills within the year, afterall.

But imagine my suprise when I read in a review that the GTS version (which I was considering) only requires 400W, while the GTX requires 450. Can anyone sort this out for me once and for all? What are the actual power requirements?

A:GeForce 8 series

It depends a lot on the amps on the 12V rail.

Appearing at
As far as power requirements go, the GeForce 8800GTS will require a minimum 400 watt power supply (with 12V current rating of 26A). The GeForce 8800GTX will require a minimum 450 watt power supply (with 12V current rating of 30A) and you can double those numbers when you start talking about SLI.Click to expand...

Personally, I'd use at least a 500 or 550 watt power supply for the 8800GTS and GTX, respectively; but you may be able to get away with what the article says. It also depends on hard drives, etc. With graphics monsters like that, too, I'd use only power supplies from a select few vendors, such as Corsair, PC Power & Cooling, SeaSonic, Antec, Enermax, or FSP. That's about all I can think of for now.

Hello there,
I am thinking about upgrading my current system. I will possibly get the GPU in a about a month or so, and I will buy the CPU and the motherboard and the Cooler possibly during Christmas. Are the FX series gonna be out by Christmas or should I go with the Phenom II x6 1100T BE?

I will be using the:
GA-990FXA-UD3 motherboard
Noctua NH-U9B SE2 CPU cooler


A:Should I wait for the AMD FX Series?

The FX cpus should be out around september i would think so i would wait if i were you.

2 days ago, my computer was running nominal and there was no problem until i downloaded TAP 32 and SecurityKiss. I have a bad habit of force shutting down computer by the power switch. When I rebotted, I had a BSOD. So That was that i chkdsk /p and fixboot. When I Reboot, i get the windows defender error, the rpc error and another error. Up to today these are the problems i faced:

-Software errors
-Taskbar missing or if its visible it doest show the running programs
-Audio Doesnt Work
-Error 711 that deals with internet connection
-Error 1048
-I cannot get connected to some servers like i used to do
-System Restore cannot start

I want to fix this as quick as possible because i have very much important documents to process in 2 days time. Thanks In Advance.

Ok. Here is my problem guys.

Before I ran the CCleaner program, (which just cleans out the system a bit) I used to be able to go to websites and when I clicked a video link, it would play it right in the same window. Now, after I ran the CCleaner program, when I go to the same website, the video link will open a whole new window and play. Now, its using windows media player 9 to view these clips. So I know that working fine. I just want it back to normal, so I can view the clip on the same page.

A:A question With IE6 + WMP 9 Series

Chek your setting in your Internet Options.

Open IE and click on Tool/Properties.
Click on Advanced tab and scroll down to Multimedia section.
Look to see which boxes are checked regarding the setting you want for viewing within web pages.

Drop a line back if it does not fix your problem.

Hey all,

I've currently got a second-hand 7950GT which had a voltage inductor break off, meaning I'm going to have to restructure the fans [they will no longer work on the card itself]. This came at a time where I've been overclocking, trying to decrease temperatures, etc.

I'm wondering if, for performance in DX9 games, two 256MB LeadTek 7950GTs in SLi would beat a single 8800GT / 8800GTS / 8800GTX?

I don't have Vista and I don't play DX10 games...yet. For the time being, would paying for a 7950GT at half the price of an 8800GTX and running the two cards in SLi give me a performance advantage?

I could then wait until prices fall on a 8800GTX.

Anybody else ever played any of the games?

I own Dragon Age Collectors edition and Dragon Age II and I like the game a lot. I have nearly 500 hours on Origins by itself and about 150 on Dragon Age II.

The new game coming out Inquisition is going to be promising as well. Anybody else planning on picking this up? Thoughts on the future game?

One thing I was kind of disappointed about was the disappearance of the above screen in Dragon Age II. I used that a lot in nightmare mode combat.

A:Series of Strange Pop-ups

Hello, First If you have this Microsoft Antiviruspro 2009 and that is it's name I believe you installed a Rogue application and we need to remove it.So let's run this scan and get a log,thanks.Next run MBAM:Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (v1.36) and save it to your desktop.alternate download link 1alternate download link 2If you have a previous version of MBAM, remove it via Add/Remove Programs and download a fresh copy.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.Press the OK button to close that box and continue.If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button. The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen:Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

hi everyone i have this all in one printer hp c4200 series ok
what happen is that the 75 tri color cartridge have damage and it appear a msg
cartridge is missing or not detected and what i want to know is theres a way to remove the msg from the printer?? so i can use the black 74 cartridge

the msg does't let me press any button from the printer

A:Help hp C4200 series???

Which model number in this list is your all-in-one printer?


The printer will not work with only the black 74 cartridge installed. The tri-color 75 cartridge has to be there also.

A cartridge doesn't get damaged while it's inside a printer. It can only get damaged by improperly handling it while unpackaging it and installing it.

If the tri-color 75 cartridge is damaged, then you need to replace it.

Does anyone know why;

My old mum got a Asus FM3 laptop with Vista. It has been a nightmare, locking, restoring etc. so as my dad can help (he has Xp on his) I wiped and installed XP Pro sp2 and downloaded all drivers needed from asus.

Problem is everytime I restart the logo etc comes up bright then as all is done the screen goes off (you can just see it).
To make it come back you need to press Blue FN and F7 LCD on then is all fine till restart.

Is there a way to make it just load as normal as she will not see this as an improvement.

A:Asus FM3 series lcd off

Sorry but did not feel the need to make a new post.

The other problem is that audio does not work. I cannot find a driver, is this the end do I go back to vista!

A:Lenovo c series please help

Try unplugging the machine, and holding the power button for 30 seconds to clear the CMOS. Then, plug it back in and see if it'll work. If not, try to continously press F11 and F12 during boot up. If that doesn't work, you may need to contact Lenovo support because it seems like the display may be defective since fans and CD ROM is running. for support chat and phone.

A:Two Routers in series

Each of your routers need to be setup individually, and not through each other.
Once setup, plug the one router into the other. You should have no problems.
But your system would be happier with a switch or even a hub.
Are Router A and B the same brand? When each is used alone, do you get the same readings? Do you have VPN? or other security that could be blocking the second router out?
