Re: Intel wants to remove 5V & 3.3V from PSU

If that happens older ATX PSU prices may go way up.... Also that means motherboards will have many more VRM parts leading to more future failures.... added: Intel has not built a desktop motherboard for years so am curious of their motive. Wonder if board makers will ignore the new spec for desktop …

Re: Feast of Intel740 chip Graphics cards

I have 2 of the Real3D Starfighter PCI cards with 24mb of memory. They are kind of strange in that the memory is not unified. The frame buffer and the texture memory are separate from each other and the texture memory is on the other side of a bridge chip that makes the normally AGP only chipset …

The Serpent Rider wrote on 2020-01-02, 08:02: Steam could do it entirely from their end by deactivating the game on the account of the player Steam won't do that. Never. If they are ordered to by a judge, they will.

Re: FYI: Steam drops XP/Vista in 2019

This applies to digital games, but I don't see why physical copies of games sold with a Steam activation key wouldn't also be covered. It won't work this easy. For that to work, the original owner must have capabilities to deactivate retail (CD key) games from an account, similar to Windows retail …

Re: 650Ti or HD5870 for late XP?

A GT640 or GT740 would probably be better for a system like that. The Core2Duo is going to be a bottleneck for anything faster. I wouldn't even consider that CPU for triple screen gaming. I have an old Dell XPS around here somewhere that came with a Core2Duo E6600 and HD5850 originally and that was …

Re: NexGen Nx586-P90

I finished? my Nx586 sytem and you can read about it here: http://retronn.de/imports/nexgen_nx586.html Here is a preview pic: http://retronn.de/ftp/pictures/hardware/NexGen/new_case_side.jpg Now dust off your NexGen systems for some comparison scores :-). Dammit! Now I'm going to have to build one …

Re: Best video card for 286 PC?

Just use the cheapest you can get hold of at this point. Handy to have for trouble shooting. 1meg was pretty standard then for a 286 system. What brand/chipset is the mobo? Do you intend to do any upgrading in the future at all?. It's a Tandy 3000HD. Pretty rare model. Oh, and I'm finding that …

Re: Best video card for 286 PC?

I use anything ATi, OAK, Trident, Cirrus Logic or what ever. Any thing that fits 16-bit ISA will run fine. What spec 286 are you talking about here, how much ram and are you intending to run Windows 3.x? If it's pre '89 the period correct crowd would scream "fit an EGA card and monitor dummy". I'm …

Re: Slot A issues

Best thing you can do with these systems is to find a Voodoo 3 card and use that. AGP is too buggy to be stable on those boards and Voodoo 3 cards seem to work better than most or you can just use a PCI card, which many people do. Back then there were still good options for PCI video that weren't …

Re: FYI: Steam drops XP/Vista in 2019

So does this mean if you buy a used, physical copy of a game that you can force Valve to let you register the key that comes with the game to your account? No, because then a judge would first have to rule that the license is transferable. I don't think that has happened yet. It's happened in …
