Re: Benchmark of my several vintage PC with different videocards ( i will update the first post )

could this be vsync? like double buffered vsync at 75Hz not hitting full FPS so going to half framerate? because the game doesn't have a lock at 38FPS, I've played it at 60 and more, also p3 933 should improve the game quite a bit from a P2 from my experience with P2 400 vs p3 750 with the v4 4500. …

Re: 3DMark06 still impressive nowdays?

I think some of the tests were re used from 3dm05 and ran a lot slower but it looks good, just not really impressive compared to modern games I don't think, still not too bad, impressive for the time no doubt. still I think it aged a lot better than 3dmark vantage.

Re: Benchmark of my several vintage PC with different videocards ( i will update the first post )

I think Porsche benefits from a faster CPU than a P2 at the race starts, but the MX200 is also struggling I would think, with 64bit SDR, if you want a hard track for the GPU I think Schwarzwald was the one giving me the most trouble with a Voodoo 4 4500 but overall the v4 4500 was mostly fine for …

Re: The story of the QuForce FX 5800 Ultra...

On the weekend a new cooler arrived and I've been trying it on. I decided to "downgrade" the card to a GeForce FX 5800 (still an upgrade from the Quadro FX 1000) in order to keep it as a single slot card and avoid heat issues with the VRAM and the RDRAM so close to each other.

Re: 2003 Dream PC project

very nice, I have very found memories of the era with this sort of setup, AXP+nforce2+radeon 9500/9700/9800 was the way to go for performance vs price for some high end gaming, but, 2GB makes no sense in this context, also I don't think any game that runs well on this PC will benefit from more than …

Re: Is there any reason to keep a Win9X machine around for gaming except for fun or nostalgia?

realistically for what I tend to run I would be fine without the old hardware and OS, but I do find it fun and nostalgic to play with the old hardware, and at times it simplifies things quite a bit with no need for patching or emulation and playing things just right. Special hardware. My Sidewinder …

Re: Best WinXP Video Card

"best" winXP card is tough because some games are broken when going from the nvidia 7xxx series to the 8xxx series due to the introduction of unified shaders vs the older shader model 3.0. I got a pc case recently that had a bunch of usable stuff inside, perfect for XP. Athlon II X2 4800+ running …
