Re: GeForce 7800 GTX on AM4 board under Windows 10

The Sims 3 probably scales poorly on recent fast hardware (everything is up to date here). I wonder why it supports the QHD setting (the game was released in 2009), maybe that was added afterwards with an update. NFS Porsche 2000 (EU version) is a D3D game, at least according to the big box version …

Re: GeForce 7800 GTX on AM4 board under Windows 10

Poorly is a relative term. Do you have any examples of games that run badly on a new DX12 card. I just tried 3dmark2001 se with 1920x1080 32bit color and it scored 90k points on my 2070 super. That should be good enough for most DX9 games :D I play The Sims 3 every now and then, which is allegedly …

Re: GeForce 7800 GTX on AM4 board under Windows 10

I built a cheap new system to my parents (Asrock B350m + Athlon 200GE + SSD + 16gb 2133) to upgrade a (Q6600 +4gb ram) system as main home PC. I reused the CASE + PSU + GPU (Radeon 7790). The thing flies with normal everyday use, also older titles (ex. FarCry3) are playable at a decent framerate …

Re: GeForce 7800 GTX on AM4 board under Windows 10

Probably isn't the best idea. If you already have the 7800 at hand you might give it a go. If not, don't buy it. Also, your Ryzen system doesn't support Win7... IMO your best bet at older games is getting a cheap used Gtx 960. I've seen people using the latest Ryzen (3rd gen) and newer motherboards …

Re: GeForce 7800 GTX on AM4 board under Windows 10

it should work, but I'm not confident that you will be getting full (or good) performance out of the drivers on win10, at least my Intel WDDM1 IGPs are way slower on windows 10, I would recommend at least windows 7 if this Ryzen can take it (I think it should work but you might be locked out of …

Re: Any love for AM2?

I have some parts and wouldn't mind building one that clocks this low and is Win98 compatible. Only Asrock Nforce 3 board is Win98 compatible. Maybe some obscure boards with VIA chipset, but that's it. there is a board that is easy to find over here that I think works with 98 Biostar k8m800 Micro …

Re: Any love for AM2?

What is the lowest clocked build you can get on AM2/ AM2+ sockets? I recall seeing somewhere on this forum around 300 MHz - is this possible? I have some parts and wouldn't mind building one that clocks this low and is Win98 compatible. I think the lowest I managed was 4x150 (600MHz) the bios or …

Re: Any love for AM2?

I used AM2 as my main platform from 2007 to 2009, I liked some aspects of the platform better than LGA 775 (like adjusting clocks, having an nvidia IGP and not GMA 950 as the most common option) the performance wasn't really up to the task against the better C2Ds, but it could kind of hang in there …

Re: Athlon XP meets PCI Express Adapter

Yep, all those PCIe <-> PCI adapter cards all use the same bridge chip which supports 66Mhz PCI operation. I remember people trying this (well the opposite) to get Voodoo 4/5 PCI to operate as 66MHz on a PCIE adapter and most adapters didn't work, even if the chip supported it the adapters were …

Re: MP4 Can Be Played on Windows 95/98/ME!

I remember playing divx around 2001 in a PII with 98se at decent speeds, I think I loaded some h264son my P3 with 98se a few years back but it was very slow well the Xbox with XBMC (Coppermine 733) was also pretty good for watching, 480p divx and such but not so much for h264 edit: I loaded an mpeg4 …

Re: My 3DMark01 Mega Thread

E7300, Asrock g31m-vs, 4GB DDR2 800, XP SP3, HD 4670 DDR2, HD 5850 reference, HD 7850 windforce 2x it's interesting how on 3dm01 the 5850 is faster even when all the specs are all lower, and on 3dmark 03 the 7850 scores a lot higher than the 5850, the 4670 does OK given the low memory bandwidth, …

Re: Best Drivers for GeForce4 MX-440

yeah the "mx440" can be something that will struggle against a Geforce 2 MX or something that will beat the Geforce 2 Ultra depending on the configuration of the card, back in 2002 most of them were initially fairly decent, with the "SE" models being the slower ones, but very quickly it became a …
