HD 4850. Around 6/2008 it was the chip/card with the best price/performance on the market. I have no intention to upgrade anytime soon.

Recently upgraded to a 460 GTX, It will be interesting to see how BoB(AKA COD) handles SLI. It will be a cheap upgrade for me to get another 460.

Cheers!

Ati 4890 and no intention of upgrading for at least 6-12 months, unless a major bargain comes my way. Spending the money is not justified for me when:

1) The game looks good enough to me as it is on the development screenshots, the only thing i'll need to do is enable anisotropic filtering and antialiasing and i'm good to go.

2) I don't play any games where GPU performance is critical like first person ones. By the time i get a DX11 card i guess a 69xx or equivalent could be less than 200 Euros. More bang for my buck that way and i can totally live with a bit less polygons and for example, 1024x1024 instead of 2048x2048 sized textures for a few months.

As long as it looks like the development screenshots with a few filters thrown in and runs smoothly, i'm covered in the graphics department. It's the new game mechanics i care most about.

It's a game about aircraft, it already looks like aircraft, what i want to know is how much it sounds, flies and operates like aircraft. The latter two being the main distinction between a simulator (that i guess most of us are after) and any other gaming genre that includes some highly detailed 3d models of real aircraft which might not really behave as such. The eye candy is good enough, let's see what's under the hood ;)

GTX 260 that i got back in July 2008. Was pretty good by the standards of the time, but is getting more and more outdated each day. It's amazing how fast technology advances. I plan to get a GTX 580 in about 6 months when the prices come down a bit. It'll be interesting to see how Cliffs of Dover runs on my 260. My guess will be about mid settings, as i can still play most games on higher settings while still getting 40-50 fps. But honestly nobody knows exactly how the "final product" will run on our machines. I don't think it will be comparable to that of what we saw at Igromir because the code has been further optimized and alot more bugs have been ironed out.

Really,if dx11 is buggy in the sim right now I would rather not have it,that would just cause another thread full of complaints

Oh,and 4850 1GB. Plays RoF very nicely,so I think I will be alright.For now...

If a mod reads this:

In case you can alter user's polls, could you please make following changes:

- add an option "Upgrade planned within the next few months"

- change close poll: 0 days

- allow multi choice

I'm going to kick out my 260 because i doubt it will be enough to actually enjoy it.

Two 580GTX's in SLI; over kill for many games and it slays all the latest games I have which is why I got 'em.

Too much for IL2, but it runs like a mill pond which is worth the investment. Looking forward to the ususal nVidia texture corruption and fixes in CoD. ;)

Well if it doesn't run well ( Which I seriously doubt) I still saved a lot of money, the 260 was very expensive compared to mine back then.

Hi Swiss

I've got the smoke shadow flickers, which according to the forums, is because of a texture issue, but happy to be directed otherwise espesh as I haven't had a chance to address it yet! :grin:

No, I haven't got the mod pack installed I'm afraid, a bit of a purist in that way :-). Happy to run one in a compatible 4.10 format. :-P

Having a dx11 capable gpu wont necessarily mean you could run dx11 games properly with it.I know the purpose of this poll so Im not going to participate,even though you can see my rig on my signature.DX11 is at its begginning,there are just a few games that use it and I 've played some of them.The amount of graphical"improvement" is nothing to justify the huge fps loss that you'll get.By the time dx11 gets implemented in the majority of games being released our ATI and Nvidia cards will be old and the new and more powerful ones are going to really demonstrate what dx11 will do.DX10 has a few years left,heck most mainstream games are DX9 and the majority look great.Show some respect to the developing team and stop crying because the game is not DX11.

Meh, the GPU won't matter all that much if you have a new(ish) videocard on a sim like this. Whats going to matter is CPU, and the faster the better. Multi-core will help, probably by offloading some stuff - hopefully AI - but not nearly as much as pure MHz speed.

All I'm concerned about is minimum framerate which will be impacted by the number of AI loaded into the map and the number of polys being pushed (low flying over those cities is going to be a frame killer be sure).

We'll probably see well over 60fps at altitude but down low will kill even the best system without being frugal with view distance. That means a lot of fights will be dragged low over cities once someone gets nervous, and we'll have to play with lower than ideal video options all the time just to make up for those situations. Good luck shooting down a decent pilot at 14fps.

Hopefully I'm overstating things and Oleg has managed to tweak performance enough to keep us over min 30fps on medium settings over cities on upper mid-range systems but don't be surprised when it doesn't run like a console game on your uber system come March.

Or at least prepare to settle for less than you're used to: low-res/highAA or native res/noAA.

What is the purpose?

Let me tell you.

Heli said the majority of users already have DX11 cards.
I doubt it, therefore I started this poll.
However, I should also have asked if they use the DX11 card with W7/Vista.
It's a survey, not more, not less.

What kind of conspiracy was in your head?

Never said that, I said the more people use DX11 than DX10, moe people use DX9 than DX10, more people use DX9 than DX11.

2 X GTX285 running in SLi, I was going to upgrade to a GTX580 purely for DX11 support, but due to the fact there is no DX11 in COD im not going to bother because 2 X 285's run slightly faster than a GTX580. Im sure by the time they patch COD to run in DX11 assuming that they do there will be at least 2 more significant GPU releases either from ATI or Nvidia which will see the price of GTX580's tumble.

You could try and pick up another 280 from ebay assuming your mobo supports SLi, you will get one real cheap and subject to COD having proper support for SLi cards which Im sure it will you will get a significant upgrade for little money. Then you can review it once DX11 is supported in a few years time. :grin:

Nope, they are not.
You either have card better than a 295 - I consider a 460 better, or not.
Plus, the 460 is a DX11, and that is what this poll basically is about.
Performance in IL2 is not relevant either, thx for participating.

Some of the more accurate hardware surveys such as Steam show that the majority is sitting on Dx10 cards, and not Dx9 which you still might think would top it.

I am pretty sure thats not true. I know 2 460's were faster by a bit than a 480, a 460 is faster than a 285 I am pretty sure, a 580 is 20-25% faster then a 480.
