I could be doing something wrong and if so I hope someone will enlighten me. I can't seem to get profiles to work with the Catalyst Control Center. I'm using the 5.6s now but I've never gotten profiles to work. I setup the settings the way I like (say for instance, max everything out) then...
Anti-aliasing (and other settings like V-Sync) are turning off when I alt-enter from full screen to windowed mode in my games. (Specifically, Everquest 2 and EVE Online.) The settings do not re-activate when I alt-enter back to full screen mode. Pulling up the ATI Control Center shows the...
With the old control panel I could make adjustments to my screen size. I could stretch and nudge the screen up/down left/right. I don't see where I can do this with ATI's new control panel. Anyone know?
I bought the projector for $2200 back in March, but you can get it now for $1700 at Amazon. I run it at native resolution, 1024x768.
Mister X - great idea, in fact a full-size fridge is just off-camera, behind where I was standing when I took the pics. :cool:
I'm able to run my RAM at SPD just fine. I am having the temperature reporting problem and I suspect that the AGP lock is not quite working right, even though I have a rev 1.1 board. I had occasional BSODs when attaching a second iPod via USB, attaching it via Firewire fixed that.
Even so I...
I am using the Digital out of my Audigy 2 to get 5.1 audio in Doom 3. My speakers, however, are Creative Megaworks 510D. Creative soundcards connected to creative speakers like the 510D allow for 5.1 audio in games via the digital out.
I do not like Creative's drivers, however, and use...
Are you sure it's device manager and not contol panel? I didn't see anything under either, although my mouse control panel is Logitech.
Also, why would Half Life be smooth while UT2003 isn't?
I do think you're onto something, though, after reading this.
Edit: Got it after switching to...
I'm just grasping at straws here, but I notice a distinct lack of smoothness in some games even though FRAPS reports a steady 60 FPS. For example, the original Half Life is silky smooth at 60FPS but UT2003 and Doom 3 are less smooth.
I only notice this when looking around with the mouse...
I posted in another thread that text on my X800 Pro is not as sharp as on my 9700 Pro. At these scales it is something to consider.
Even so, it is quite legible as I am working on it now, and gaming and movies much more immersive on the big screen.
Here ya go:
You can see the projection screen on the right.
The flash washes out the image -- here's a shot without the flash.
The PC is behind the shelves, which display my game and component boxes nicely, plus hold the projector and rear speakers. The La-Z-Boy provides...
Remember, a Creative soundcard to Creative speakers will get you surround sound in games, digitally. I use an Audigy 2 with Megaworks 510D speakers. Creative's software sucks, so I use drivers from KX Project instead. Highly recommended.
Clear type is on. I remember noticing how much improved the 2D was on my 9700 Pro compared to my GF4 Ti4200. Now the quality seems to have reverted with the 800 Pro. May be the 9700 was just exceptional? Both are Sapphire. The 4200 was Visiontek.
I'm using an NEC LT260K projector on a 76 inch screen :)
I don't think the difference would be that great on a standard-sized monitor, but at 76 inches the slightest drop in quality is noticeable.
I'm using a 400w PSU from PC Power and Cooling.
They are all good cards, but I think the X800 Pro is shown to be a better overall performer than even the 6800 Ultra here. It's also smaller and less power hungry. I may be putting this in a SFF system so that's a plus. (I've built two Shuttle systems, one for my mom and one for my aunt and I...

I play at 1024x768 because...
