Re: BFG Nvidia FX 5950 Ultra Build

A 3dmark2001 benchmark on my Athlon64 2.6Ghz system that my card resides in. It is FX-60, but should be the same in any similar clockspeed Athlon64. 3dmark01.jpg I did test the card with other cpus about a year ago and I think this is the best it can do. I did get about 15k with P4 3.2Ghz and about …

Re: BFG Nvidia FX 5950 Ultra Build

Radeon 9600 gives FX5950 a hard time in Shader 2.0. i remember how bad Oblivion was running on the 5950... The 5950 cost a fortune.. and did not perform at all. Main thing about FX5950 isn't the performance. It is the support for older games. It has the 8 bit paletted textures support for win9x …

Re: BFG Nvidia FX 5950 Ultra Build

Ok, I will do a S939 build as that seems to be the general consensus. Not sure what the fastest CPU I have for that platform is.. I'll have to check. Actually, what about an AM2 setup with an FX-62? I do have the ASRock nForce3 250 socket 754 board and the AM2 upgrade card. Sure it is dual core, …

Re: BFG Nvidia FX 5950 Ultra Build

I would put one in Athlon64 and win9x since the FX series is the last to support 8 bit paletted textures that some win9x games use. With winxp there are a lot of newer better gpu options that do directx 9 better while FX series was quite slow with directx 9. Just make sure you get Athlon64 …

Re: Wing Commander 4 on old hardware.

Take a look at https://www.wcnews.com/wcpedia/DVD_Upgrade_Patch The installer doesn't seem to accept my original wing commander IV CD. I wonder if there is some regional differences that are causing that. Has anyone been able to find out if there are instructions how to do manually what that …

Re: Wing Commander 4 on old hardware.

Since the GoG version wc4dvd.exe runs on windows 98 compatibility mode in newer windows and wing commander 4 dvd version is suppose to be originally win9x game as far as I know I copied the installed files from my main pc to my P3. Not sure how exactly they have changed the game at GoG, but at least …

Re: 4.77Mhz dream.

Only via chipsets allow 6.25% increments with throttle. Other chipsets would allow only 12.5% increments which would end up being twice the speed at highest setting. Are you sure this is the case? Internally, throttle.exe file states that setting "F" is: "hello? is this thing on? (93.75% throttled …

Wing Commander 4 on old hardware.

I own wing commander 4 original CD version and I also own the one on gog.com that has the higher quality FMVs from DVD version I believe but it says it require win7 or newer. Anyone knows if there is any way to run wing commander 4 in my dos/win9x P3 pc using the higher quality FMVs?
