View Full Version : sticky graphics card thread?
wouldn't it be a good idea to make a sticky graphics card thread?
every 2nd thread here is about graphics cards....and if it should be a nvidia or ati card.
I know we can't say here you should buy nvidia, but maybe a sticky thread with some links to other threads and a notifiaction that everybody should use the search function first?
just a thought :shrug:
yeah good idea i thought this up the other day but unlike the tutorials and script threads the the info would be unusful very qucikley. and would need to be updated alot and the way we see drivers and issues will prob change in i dont know how long.
but its a good idea:thumbsup:

I have absolutely no idea why they haven't. The same thread comes up at least twice a week, and it appears people can't even look to the posts on the first page if they are more than three down as they post the same thing over and over again. I'm actually kinda surprised that many of the same people answer them, although some are starting to get fed up with it I think. So here's hoping for a sticky thread.
But, ya know even a sticky thread still won't solve it as I've seen many a forum with a sticky thread go completey unused and people just make a new thread with whatever overasked question they are thinking about. Such is the life of an internet forum.

well, perhaps a sticky graphics card thread that covers the basics, what do the FX cards do? Quadro Wha?
How do i softquadro?
etc etc, and then still allow people to post about their graphics card questions
because everything can't be covered in a single thread
We need one that explains what cards are good for what, and what you should buy if you want to do so and so.. And whenever a noob asks a question about cards thats already answered, we just tell them to search.. Otherwise we are just wasting database space answering the same thing over and over...

Also, an explanation that sticking a brand new graphics card in a three year old computer won't actually increase performance because of the serious bottleneck that is the three year old computer.
