Optiplex 790 MT - XP/10 Build

I got my Optiplex 790 MT from my work about 5 years ago when they were cycling out old systems. It's been a shared family machine running Windows 10 Pro. I decided to upgrade the family box to an 8600k/GTX 1060 I had laying around and make this my XP build box. I've been messing around with Socket A …

Re: can anyone recommend a cologne?

in Milliways
This question is really terrible for this forum.. Like the demographic here probably isn't the best at making decisions on how they smell. A fair amount probably smell more like smoke than anything else. 😁

Re: 3dmark99 MegaThread

Aebtdom, that's intersting to see your result in comparison to mine (few posts up) with similar systems and clock speeds. I guess the 400mhz bus may be the advantage for my machine. I don't think the L2 or RAM would make as much of a difference. I think you might be right. Are you using the nforce2 …

Re: Intel arc and d3d9

It's probably actually something to do with the weird performance of the cards and some supposedly unfixable issue with the current silicon.

Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

I'm using it with Dx 8.2 myself, but don't have much time to play with it. I do think there's value in "aligning" drivers and such. For example, I have an Asus VGA Driver CD v305 from 2003 which contains driver 44.03, DirectX 9 and VIA drivers (relevant to me) 4.45. It's reasonable to assume that …

Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

UPDATE: So, I've made some progress. I've now tried updating DirectX from version 8.1 to 9.0C, and this actually improved things considerably (but the issue is still not completely fixed)! With DirectX 8.1 and driver version 45.23, I was NEVER able to finish a race (the keyboard would stop …

Re: Table Fog & 8-bit Paletted Textures

This might be a dumb question, but would these features be of concern if the system is complimented by a Voodoo 1 or 2? You would have to run the games which need these features on the Voodoo card, but otherwise there would be no issues. The Voodoo 1 is not great in terms of performance though, and …
