  1. ive sat here for the last 6 hours trying different cards and different drivers ive run 3d benchmarks and run several differnt games i tested one card with the latest driver that scored 51 in the pit kept hanging in games then i installed a older driver it bumped the score upto 360 and also run all the games a threw at it no problems. Ithought i would post my findings to help other users experiencing problems but before any one can have a chance to try it you just put them of by basicly saying its bull . your ment to help people but what you have said obviously ain't
  2. Absolutely no need for that any time.
  3. Ok just try it using some different driver versions if you cant see a change then you can you can go about putting people off
  4. and as u use linux you prob have no idea about the problems with windows drivers
  5. this is tried and tested. built a system 2day that scored a mere 125 in the pit after some messing around with different drivers it scored 492 you cant be sayin its a waste of time you havnt even tested this Also most cards only come with one gpu that processes both 2d and 3d if that same gpu dont perform well in 2d it aint gona perform much better with 3d is it
  6. he was sticking to a budget any way the 8600 is a good card for the money
  7. i dont think that zerotherm uses liquid though as the other one im looking at uses coolant i no it aint quite the same as a proper liquid kit but it does circulate coolant through the heatsink then a radiator to cool it and as for some of the water cooling kits the cheapest i found with a good pump was nearly $350 this comp aint worth that lol
  8. As a system builder i get to test and try all types of hardware and have noticed recently a major problem with nvidia drivers. Some earlier cards work fine with original drivers but lost performance when using updated drivers! More recent cards i.e 8800 gt gtx and the new 9 series dont even work well with bundled drivers. Ive found a soulution it can somtimes be a time consuming process but is well worth it in the long run. first go to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us Then enter series,model,os etc...... and it will list all drivers ever released for that card. Now the NVIDIA Recommended drivers dont always work but downloading them first is your best bet. This is how to test your card run a pc pit test and check the 2D score. All top of the line cards for each series should score atleast 300 from the 6 series onwards. Run this test with your original drivers first to get some sort of idea what your score is. If it passes the 300 mark for the 6+7 series your ok and 400+ for 8+9 series. If you beleve your card aint performing like it should you can then download NVIDIA Recommended drivers. uninstal your original driver restart when prompted then install downloaded drive, once complete run another test your score will either improve or decrease. if there was no change or a decrease try the WHQL Certified realeases starting from the earliest realease onwards untill you get the score you would expect. If you cannot increase your score atall you might be considered as having 1 of the thousands of faulty cards that are on sale or maybe have some other hardware issue.
  9. ok ive just checked and all my hardware supports linux. So my next question is, whats the best version of linux, will it play games designed for windows, and can i dual boot with xp. im greatfull for any help.
  10. a strait answer would be nice
  11. I used linux a couple of years ago and couldnt get on with it It wouldn't reconise most of my hardware and would not play games. Is it better now?
  12. And buying a ready built machine is silly they always use the cheapest parts on the market that just dont perform that well
  13. this is more easy sorry http://orders.ebuyer.com/customer/shopping...YXJ0&stid=1
