    Haha, GeForce users can't play Half-Life 2 b/c there's an non-repairable glitch in all NVidia cards.

    ATI cards have the same problem but it's fixable in the next driver upgrade.

    ATI > NVidia :fawk:

    That just means less sales for HL2.

    I think they'll fix it. That's like them releasing a game that would only work on Intel.

    Did you read the article? It didn't say it wouldn't work, just that it wouldn't work with full scene AA on.

    Nowhere in that article does it say Nvidia cards can't run HL2. It just sais there could be problems running with FSAA. :slap:

    huh...maybe I should keep my 9800 pro... but with driver fixes like:

    * The game Unreal Tournament 2003 no longer hangs when loading the CTF-December level

    * Flickering and display corruption in the game NeverWinter Nights is now resolved

    * Multimedia mode scaling and positioning issues have now been resolved when using TV out

    * Display corruption noticed on the ATI Demo Rachel running under Windows XP is now resolved

    * Significant CPU usage is no longer noticed when Hardware Overlay Alpha Deblocking is in use

    I'm not so sure I shouldn't sell it and get a GF FX 5900 Ultra. ATI cards need a fucking patch/driver for every game that comes out.

    Read the entire article again. It's just talking about anti-aliasing. Since I never turn on AA anyway its not going to matter.

    Next time make sure you understand what you're reading before you post.

    This doesn't even matter. No serious gamer even uses FSAA, it is just a hardware gimmick designed to sell cards.
