Question about my rig...

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at an Asus 24" LCD which might be a nice upgrade from my present Samsung 19". I play FC, have two X1950XTX's in crossfire (overclocked) with 14X AA 16X FSAA. Things are smooth now, so my question is...am I looking for trouble FPS-wise with this choice?


Here's me system (meebe it'll shed a nostalgic tear in yer eye maytees) :pirate:


FX-55 @ 3 GHZ

2X X1950XTX Crossfire mode

2 G OCZ (the good stuff I forget the name)

DFI Lanparty X-Fire MB

650w Antec PSU


PS- Sorry about the pirate stuff, I've had a few drinks. :)

Black Shark does not (that I know of) currently support SLI so I doubt it supports Crossfire either (somebody please correct me if I am wrong). An X1920XT should be ok though I would guess. Black Shark and Lock On seem to be more CPU dependant rather than GPU dependant. For a 19 inch monitor (are you running an LCD or a CRT?) I would imagine your native resolution (if you are running an LCD) is either 1024x768 of 1280x1024. A resolution of 1920x1200 is a substantial increase in resolution and will require quite a bit more processing wise. You should be fine with your graphics card/s, but I am not sure regarding the CPU. The CPU may be just fine, but I am not sure. My C2D E6600 ran (2.4ghz) Blackshark ok when I test 24 inch LCDs, but that is a different technology.

My current monitor is LCD@ 1280x1024 and she's running smoothly at the moment. Also, I'm not really interested in Blackshark just yet, I play FC. Thanks for the info though, I'll keep ya posted on how it goes...Gotta wait 'till after Christmas day, though. :pilotfly:
