Re: Geforce 6600 vs Geforce FX 5950 ultra.

Fastest AGP cards available from ATi with proper 16-bit dithering - Radeon X1950XT. 16 bit? Why? Each DX9 game supports 32bit! Already a Geforce3 had hardly any speed differences between 16bit and 32bit. If you need nice 16bit dithering, i recommend a 3Dfx - Voodoo2 or Voodoo3. Very compatible with …

Re: Geforce 6600 vs Geforce FX 5950 ultra.

It depends on what your goal is. A FX5950 is a very nice and rare high-end card, which handles all games from DX5 to DX8, with drivers for Win9x to WinXP. If you are only interested in DX9 in WinXP or higher, a 6600 is clearly better, the one without GT should be a bit above the FX5950, the GT …

Re: AMD DX4 100MHz build

Very nice system. I like the composition, very harmonious. Also the old Microsoft mouse and the Typhoon speakers fit very well into the picture. Maybe a S3 864, Mach64 or CL GD5434 would fit a bit better into the time context, but that's high level criticism. The Philips CD drive was my very first, …

Re: Any point upgrading vlb card?

Ok, for Win95 SVGA gaming a better graphics card with decent Windows Accelerating would give a good speedup. Avoid the ET4000 and the ARK from my list above. But i think for really fluid SVGA gaming you will need a PC a class higher - Pentium MMX, K6-2, 6x86MX or better. The SVGA version was …

Re: Any point upgrading vlb card?

Your Board and CPU should have enough speed for this game. And C&C is a simple VGA (320x200) game. I played it in 95 with a 486 SX 50MHz and i cannot remember, that is was very slow. As i played without FPU, i think the POD83 would give no advantage over the Am5x86. Maybe it is an incompatibility of …

Re: What display do you use for gaming ?

DOS with VGA/SVGA - 15" CRT Sony Multiscan 100ES / 4:3 Windows 98 / 2000 - 17" CRT Nokia 447XiPlus / 4:3 Windows XP / Windows 7 - 20" LCD Samsung SyncMaster 204Ts / 4:3 Windows 10 - 34" LCD Dell AW3420DW / 21:9 Since the display is the most important interface between man and PC, I attach great …

Re: Soundcards for SS7 build

dionb has recognized the problem correctly. I deliberately did not mention the AWE with a wavetable about the WTH in the proposals. On the one hand my AWE version (CT3990) has the really annoying HNB and on the other hand the jerkers in Tie-Fighter are really shitty. I had a SB16 + SCB55 in my …
