    I just use adblock for anything annoying like signatures or that little "new post" icon that pops up everywhere, can make exceptions inside it for the ads we have now, too.

    Half was a bit of an exaggeration. But it's at 1366x768 to answer your question.

    ISLAFAP PRESENTS THE 2012 AUNTIE ISLADAR AWARD

    With the closing of the 2012 posting year, the Committee for the Assessment of an Exploratory ThinkTank to Project the Potentiality of the 2013 Isladar Foundation for Awesome Posts (hereafter IslaFAP) would like to express its heartfelt appreciation to BlueGartr for its commitment to excellence in the field of places where Isladar posts. IslaFAP would also like to acknowledge the generous support of the supporters who support BlueGartr in the execution of its mission in IslaFAPing, with all that support (of the supporters who support BlueGartr and IslaFAP) entails.

    It is with great honour that I, Isladar, accept the 2012 Auntie Isladar Award for Excellence in Isladaring and Auntieing. It is no mean feat to win an award furnished by a committee committed to and entirely fabricated by myself. Indeed, it’s easy to just win an award – all you have to do is show up and accept! Instead, I took the high road of selflessly giving and accepting my own award, thus ensuring that the typical awards-committee politicking and favouritism was avoided, and shouldered the burden of creating and winning said award, thus sparing the rest of BG my difficult, me-specific path.

    By receiving this award, I acknowledge that I am pretty fucking great. I know that I have a lot to live up to – ‘cause let me tell you, my own over-inflated opinion of myself isn’t going to let me rest on just the 2012 Auntie Isladar Award. No, it’s going to take a lifetime of continually being me, and by extension, being pretty fucking great, to truly pass the strenuous conditions that being me, and by extension, really fucking great, entails.

    Furthermore – Ah.

    Oh dear.

    Ladies and gentlemangs, I’ve just been informed that this is not in fact the reception for IslaFAP’s 2012 Auntie Isladar Award Ceremony. Evidently it is a thread where Vandole does a little dance while you throw money at the forums for fabulous prizes.

    I approve.

    DONATE IN MY NAME, JERKS.

    what

    Is this the best turn-out for raising donations we've had? I don't remember the goals/totals from previous years. Can't believe we broke 6k.

    Performance-wise 570 is about the same as a 480. Some things will see a slight advantage to one or the other, but either way you'd probably be counting the average FPS difference on one hand.
    Bigger difference is power/heat, where the 570 is a marked improvement.

    Obviously, the 460 is a lower tier product than the 480, so it's significantly behind a 570 - though again, it pulls a lot less power and produces a lot less heat.
