No worries. Couldn't resist, I had a chuckle when I saw it.

OP: Unless you're having problems related to memory I'd stick with the 690 for now tbh.

I'm not here to give you anything. I'd rather not post than post some dodgy charts from an unknown site. You just look at that and you'll see it makes no sense. Have a look.

The score is pretty much bullshat in all honesty. I highly doubt it's even close to being accurate.

Apparently fact is irrelevant when it differs from his belief...

What fact?Why is it rubbish?I even own an AMD card in my main rig...Oh, and another 7950 guy. I don't see any nvidia owner pointing that article as not being accurate.

What belief? I just passed the info and it looks real to me as i have checked the beta charts from Tomshardware.

Yes, I currently own an AMD card. Well, 2 actually. (coincidentally, I also own an NVidia card) In the last decade, I've owned 7 AMD cards. ATI Rage Pro, Radeon 9200SE, 9600XT, x700 Pro, HD4850, HD7870 and HD7950. In that time, I've also owned a Geforce2 MX200, MX400, 5600XT, 5700LE, 6200, 6800NU, 7600GT, 8600GT SLI, 9600GT, GTS250, GTX275, GTX460, GTX560Ti and GTX660. That's 15 NVidia cards. I wouldn't suggest trying to infer that I'm some sort of fanboy....oh ****, that's right. You were already ignorant enough to do exactly that.....

So tell me, why were you supporting Eclap? Just because he says so? You still haven't told me the fact that makes that review rubbish like he said, neither has he. But as i haven't seen any other reviews around i am using that as a direction.

I have said why it's rubbish. Not in this thread, but in the other one where you're spamming this chart. There is no way 290x is 20fps slower than the 780. In fact, multiplayer is heavily cpu dependent, if you look at their sp chart, the 290x laughs even at the titan. So do me a favor and get lost. It's not my fault you can't add 2 and 2 together.

You're being assaulted because you're instigating argument and posting shat information, knowingly. You reported me for what? Telling the truth? You're a nonsense merchant and most of the forum well understands it.
