    Default Lost Planet - 8800 GTS

    I like Quake4 and Doom3, which is what I play when I game.Lost Planet has just released Extreme Condition, and I went to there site:

    http://www.lostplanet-thegame.com/flash_index.phpBut

    it really dosen’t say much about the game. Excuse me for being a n00b for the fact that I am really only into 2 games and have just noticed LP.

    How is it compaired to Quake4? Faster? More action? What?

    The reason is that I was looking at upgrading to an evga 8800 GTS 320:

    then I found that the XFX 8800 GTS 320:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...6814150171Same price, but it comes with Lost Planet : EC – which is a $38 saving then if I buy the game sperately so I would get the XFX.Oh, the game bundle info is here:

    ok first thing - never choose a video card based on what's bundled with it.

    Well, I am not choosing a card because of what game comes with it, The eVGA and XFX card are the same price and almost the same warrentee.

    When I am ready to buy, I might be able to get the eVGA card $5-10 lower, but if the game is good, then I will just get the XFX.

    It is more of a value question.

    Any feedback on the game?

    sorry - never played it

    typically the games sold with video cards have great graphics but bad gameplay, there are exceptions of course - thats what i've found anyway

    Lost Planet will bring that card to it's knee's. It is a poorly coded port.

    Guys check this , I was just playing dx10 lost planet one day and at fisrt i remember that things would stop to a stand still and advice you to put your settings down.

    I have a 8800GTX , I am a qualified techniatian and I was curious to why this happens .

    So what I did was left task manager running and ran both dx9 and dx10 versions. I was very surprised to see how little of resources are used in task manager by lost planet dx10 than lost planet dx9.
