For video DVD player, nothing is more important but the VGA card. The best video card you could use for it is an ATI one, this is for sure. ATI cards from RAGE128 have hardware motion compensation AND IDCT (inverse discrete cosine transformation). Other cards, including FX series have hardware motio...

I'll do my test on the MVP3G5.
Maybe I'll be able to get a Ga-5AX rev5.2 to see if in gaming ALI is better.

And I found a Radeon 9500@9700! It will be shipped in a week.

Well.. After several failures and some web surfing I can say that the REAL problem is the HSI bridge. No card with the HSI is completely compatible with the 3.3V signaling of AGP 1.0, maybe that's why there are problems from 6x.xx drivers. I tried the 6600GT with a bx133 card (intel 440bx) and it su...

I'm running into the troubles you mentioned Don Pedro. The drivers are functional for 2D, but any 3D appplication fails. I'm trying to mod the drivers from the 56.72 version, I want to find the file that makes the 3D go bad and replace it, if possible. By now I have only edited the inf file to recog...

Yes I know the problem, but I like to step into problems a lot. I'll give it a try anyway like I did with the fx5700. I'll use windows XP anyway and I try to search for alternate drivers, such as Omega or something like. I know Omega drivers have always better compatibility. The 6600GT is coming for...

Not sure i did it actually.
I give up anyway that rig.
Now I'm trying to find a Sparkle 6600GT, if I have to try something, better be something that would hit the 3400point on 3Dmark.

So another king of the hill will come.

No I was not able to mount a K6-2+, I tried a K6-III with no luck. The only difference is that in the old system I used an AWE64 ISA and now I use a Live! PCI. Obviously I uninstalled the Live! without success. Even changed the power supply with a more powerfull one. Maybe the only thing I can do is...

Hi guys, long time I don't refresh this topic. After I was able to hit 3400 with my FX5700 and a K6-2+ I was hoping to do better with a K6-III+. But I failed, the SAME configuration I used for all those tests was completely unstable with K6-III+ 500 ANZ no matter if over or underclocked. I get the s...
