I know what you mean. I was actually going to get the game when I got my new card (6950) but I couldn't wait so I got the game and started palying. Card will be here sometime today. Can't wait.

Graphically, they were the same. It was just a 'continued development' of an existing game.

Technically, the gameplay improvements of BS2 were superior to BS1 - but the originals strength was all about the ' game world atmosphere'.

BS2 promised more than it delivered. In reality the story was weaker and the 'atmosphere' felt stale. A case of been there, done that.

IStill haven't got around to finishing the first - it's only been a couple of years now?

Well Fed Ex is now showing status a "shipment delayed"

Might be due to the crazy weather the states has been having. Guess I'll have to wait another day or so. Darn it

If you're talking to me, my 4890 is holding up rather well. Haven't found a game I couldn't play. It's just time to move into the DX11 world now, though the only DX11 game I have is Metro.

Just got an e-mail from Amazon saying they are refunding my one day shipping costs since I can't get my card today due to bad weather in Indianapolis.

Hope I get it tomorrow XXX

I think that would depend on your wallet. If your card is still working, and it does what you want then....

For me, I was already one generation behind, it's a better card, and this was the last item to complete my current build.

With that, for me, it was worth it. Plus it's a birthday gift to me


BTW Dead Space 2 is looking pretty good. Enjoying it thus far.

You'd notice an improvement, although your TV's 720P resolution would be a limiting factor. (less noticeable than if it were 1080p for example)

As for DX11 - it's implementation in titles so far is kind of 'meh'
