Indeed! I havn't used forums for anything else except discussions about motorcycle parts for a couple years. I am quickly reminded how engaging AND taxing an opinion thread is.

I agree that opinion threads are VERY taxing, and they can grind you down pretty fast, too. Sometimes I have wondered why I even bother to post at all. So where is that motorcycle forum located?Tongue Tied

honda599.com is the the most recent, have some work to do on my hornet. Anything covering vintage hondas. The most helpful though, not surprisingly, is craigslist. Fastest and and most relevant responses.Ask the locals for local knowledge.

My neighbor back on Long Island has two vintage hondas that he is always tweaking and working on.  I'm sure he'd be a good resource, granted I don't know any of his contact info.  SadDoes that make this a useless post?

I formed an opinion by posting just that on here earlier.  I am not judging anyone's choice to not join Facebook.  Everyone has their reasons and are entitled them them, just as I am entitled to my opinion.  Yes, you are forming opinions of me based on my posts, but there are many individuals I run into every day that form opinions of me based on what they feel is appropriate.  Voicing an opinion in any situation is usually done to get noticed whether it's to win a contest or not.  I think the opinion I have formed is a genuinely debatable topic - if it wasn't it would never have come up on the forum.

 

I can appreciate the users who are upset that it is much easier to win something such as this beast of a system because businesses are using tools to better market their business.  It makes it easier for a user to simply log on to facebook, like a couple groups and make a couple posts on facebook and win the system.  I fully believe that the winner should contribute to this forum - it helps the community.  I fully intend to stick around even if I don't win the system.  So Yes, I am writing to get noticed, but not necessarily to win the system.

I wasn't commenting on your input. It's just a weird twist to the thread and is probably resolved at this point.

It is a weird twist to the thread.  I certainly wouldn't have expected it to turn this way.

 

Either way - it's conversation and again, I wasn't intending to offend anyone.

Ahh; the fun we have on HH, lol. I have decided to install the original Warcraft I had in the basement and download Cataclysm which goes live tonight as well. I was surprised when I opened this old box because it is 5 CD's. It has been a while since I installed something not on a DVD!

Nope. Sorry.

As far as it goes the 6870 is only under the very top end Nvidia card right now. There are really several aspects to look at on this issue. The first is heat even there new 580 while it puts out less heat than the previous GPU, it still puts out significant heat well above what a Radeon puts out. It also uses more energy to a pretty high number as well. That to me is two strikes off the bat because I personally like to tweak my system. If I am going to do that in any form both excess heat and energy usage are my number one enemies.

On top of those things only the Nvidia top of the line card (the 580) outperforms the 6870 from what I have seen. The Nvidia card that performs even with it still costs a little bit more, produces a little more heat, and uses more energy. So to me it (the Nvidia) is not really a plus, and as far as it goes only works pretty much even with it anyway.

Now if we were talking the brand spanking new  (still not publicly released) ATI card or the 580 that would be interesting. I personally use a 5870 in one computer, and have a 5850 in Sarah's machine. The 5850 from what I have seen over all performs about even with the 6870 though maybe slight (very slightly) under it performance wise, while the 5870 performs better across the board than any of these GPU's except the 580.

So basically the 6870 to me is a great card! Which makes it no discussion unless we are talking one of those two GPU's. I personally have decided to stick it out until the next ATI release with the 5870, or maybe seeing what Nvidia does price/performance wise one of there cards. As it goes the 5870 even performs just under the 580 while running cooler and using less energy.

The NVIDIA GTX-570's were released yesterday and timely reviews have shown them to be quite capable.

They also have a nice price point @ $350.00 or so,........so the competition is heating up and the ball is now in AMD's court.

Let's see their newest offerings now,.....

Woohoo!  Go 6850!  Dirt cheap, tons of horsepower and overclocks like the dickin's!  I know it's at the bottom of the review but look at the scores!  Playable frame rates no matter what's thrown at it.  Well, except AvP.

Well, nothing to do but kick it with my homies and knock back some brews!  Yeah, we're cool alright.

Don't mess with them.  They'll F you up!
