It doesnt need the card, some people seem to be confused about that.
Just because Ageia PhysX are involved it doesn't mean you need the card to drive it, it just means they are using the API, something like Havok.
Sorry I didn't read every page of replies to the article but something has me confused.
Enough people are seeming to get upset that AMD might be selling some (not all) of the X3's that were slated to be X4's, but had a bad proc on it so it is technically crippled.
This is new? AMD has...
ECC ram won't work in a non ECC board right? I don't mean the error correcting, I'm wondering if it'll work period.
Reason why I am asking is because I have an Alienware ALX (Intel 7525 chipset I think)board with 2GB of DDR2 ECC RAM and 2x3600DP/2M/800s and I have nothing to test them on.
Hey, im looking to finally upgrade my A64 Athlon 3200+ with:
MSI P35 Platinum
Some decent ram that I havent chosen yet.
My main question is...do I need a specific stepping of 4300 to get good OCing or are they all very good overclockers.
Reasoning behind the MSI board is that...
Some of you might remember me posting a month or 2 ago about not being able to (sanely) run any game in windowed mode.
It causes massive frame lag and bogs down the whole system.
I have tried drivers, OCing (including altering voltages etc) and a few other things and nothing has seemed to...
Yeah I have the same packaging for the s754 3000+s I just got in...
Id have an AM2 system by now but im waiting till a decent board with the nforce 590 chipset is out.
Cant find the K9N Diamond Plus aaaaanywhere.
Wonder if I can use my old 6600 with nvidias version of it along with my x1900...apparently its similar..
BTW you dont NEED all three cards for physics with ATI, they say there is a 2+1 and 1+1 solution...
Yeah, you can buy it. But will you actually have it in 1-3 days? Doubt it. I can list whatever I want...doesnt mean I actually have it.
EDIT: Oh its a 4400, blech I mean the 5000+ and the FX-62 mainly.
Its been said but Conroe is a biiig upgrade for intel arcitecture wise, AM2 is just so they can release K8L down the road..
Conroe will hold the crown then K8L will come out...then we will see either way because then itll be more equal footing.
Don't know if yall remember this but a while ago I was having issues with playing games in windowed mode on my x1900. Ive tried locking down the clock speeds and jacking up the voltage but it didnt seem to help. Just wondering if anyone else had this issue and found a fix :)
