Ok, so what's better than the fx5600 for Windows 98 builds??? Nothing. ATI is out of the question since it lack features for retro gaming, the GeForce 3 and older are all slower. The GeForce 4 to series is a close second but it uses WAY more power and runs hot. Also the fx5600 has superior AA and anioscopic filtering performance.
So please someone explain to me what would be better for Windows 98 and WHY. Don't just say the FX 5600 sucks. Give me reason plz. I am correct here.
FX5700 Ultra, it has all the improvements that made the 5900 a good card just for the mid-range. Unlike the fx5600 a 5700 actually competes in SM 1.4 with a 9600 pro/XT
Again wrong. The FX5700 cards do NOT support the 45.23 driver. The FX5700 can only use the LESS windows 98 compatible 5x.xx series of drivers. The 5x series driver and up have some issues with Windows 98 games.
I am correct here so far.
