Re: Best GPU for an Athlon MP (WinXP)

First link is a very useful interactive guide. The second link explains it a lot better but only has the mods looking at the CPU pin side. https://www.ocinside.de/workshop_en/amd_pinmod/ http://www.emboss.co.nz/amdmults/ Edit: Which 3000+ CPUs are you running?

Re: Best GPU for an Athlon MP (WinXP)

https://i.ibb.co/TL20KCt/cpuid.png https://i.ibb.co/P4vDNGr/cachemem.png Why is this crap saying that the cpus are like 800Mhz? Also with this board a lot of readouts in aida are weird like it says somewhere that the second cpu is intel :D Either way with this board there is no way to do any …

Re: Best GPU for an Athlon MP (WinXP)

Hmm I give a shot to: 93.71_forceware_winxp2k_international_whql.exe Its pretty much the same results, 3dmark crashes, fps in games not improved and even worse some games like Cod2 now randomly crash. I not just uninstalled the old driver and reinstalled the new driver btw. I restored the system …

Re: Lost Vikings General MIDI port changer

in DOS
Sorry to bump such an old topic up but does this game using MIDI at all? During the setup there is just the sound driver so I assumed that it is not using MIDI. Either way I have a Sound Blaster 5.1 SB0600 and it sounds absolutely terrible for some reason in both DOS and Win98SE. I'm using Phils …
