    Direct3d

    Problem is fixed. Powercolor responded telling me to uninstall and reinstall my chipset drivers. I did it and all is back to normal. I hope this helps someone else.

    Direct3d

    Sure did. I just don't understand why it did it in the first place I didn't change anything between when it was working excellent and when it messed up.

    Direct3d

    Also I reinstalled my old card, 9000pro and it runs direct3d apps just fine. Put the 9800se back in and its doing it again. I emailed powercolor but they have not yet responded.

    Direct3d

    I recently installed a Radeon 9800SE card. It worked fine for a couple of days and everything was going good. All the sudden yesterday and today it is giving me nothing but trouble. Any game requiring D3D the movements are very very slow, frame by frame(half-life2, need for speed most wanted)...

    Ramsink Question

    My Zalman VF700-CU will be arriving soon and I noticed that it comes with ramsinks. My question is, are the ramsinks that come with this even good? I thought I read a few days ago that someone on here claimed that only one kind were worth using. I was wondering if I should put the ramsinks on at...

    ZALMAN VF700-CU Good soultion?

    How simple is it to install? Maybe the question I should ask is, how easy is it to take the stock cooler off?

    ZALMAN VF700-CU Good soultion?

    In a day or two my video card is going to arrive (9800se; good enough for what I do.) I plan to softmod it but first I am replacing the heatsink. My question is, will this be sufficient? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835118117

    Will this affect performance?

    Maybe some software that could tell me how many pipelines are enabled?

    Will this affect performance?

    This may sound dumb but here goes. Once I install the new card, is there something I can view that I can look at before and after to see if the mod worked?

    Will this affect performance?

    Thanks :) how effective is the softmod usually? About the most graphic intensive game I play is counter-strike:source.

    Will this affect performance?

    Could someone explain why? I guess to the average person such as myself would think 8x means better?

    Will this affect performance?

    I just ordered a new video card (9800SE plan on softmodding because others seemed to have success doing it). My motherboard only has AGP4x on it, the card says it is 4x or 8x. My question is will my motherboard being only 4x hold this card back? The system is a Sempron 2600 Socket-A with 1 gig...

    I don't know about the account thing. Would that work even though the computer without the printer is running Windows xp?

    Ram question

    I don't play really cpu demanding games, occasionally counter-strike and grand theft auto. But I was wondering if just having that much more would cancel out the fact of it slowing down, for how I use it anyways. By the way it is a Sempron 2500 Socket-A, 333mhz.

    Ram question

    I currently have one stick of 512 in my computer, it is 333mhz, and I have the opportunity to get another stick for like 15 dollars brand new. The catch is the stick I could buy is only 266mhz, How much would this affect my system performance?

    I asked recently about using a SATA hard drive in a regular IDE type motherboard. I found this product http://www.syba.com/product/41/04/02/index.html and in their pictures it only shows the device put on the hard drives and cdroms. I was wondering if I could plug the device in my motherboard...
