    This is an insignificant issue, but I want to hold a poll on which graphics card you use at this will greatly influence a developer's incentive to support a particular graphics card if it is widely used. I invite all guests and members to take this poll please.

    Also, try to post a few comments if possible.

    I got myself recently a 6600gt pci express and I am very happy with it. in the beginning I thought wow 200$ is a lot of money but now when I see dvd's or play games or even photo's are so nice, smooth I am glad I purchased it.

    you shouldn't be sad Firecat really, cause I had for two years a gforce 5200FX :D that was a bummer but to be honest I still could play all the games out there but not on all resolutions and certainly not with antialiasing and stuff.

    take your time, save a bit and you'll get yourself a better one cause in a few months prices will drop again and you can get yourself a 6600gt for 140$ or at the moment a ati 9800xt for 120$

    don't worry I bet you can play all the games I can.

    bye

    Is 5500 a good score in 3DMark03 for an FX 5900? o_O

    Got an Asus V9950 FX 5900 here....

    yes imho, it means you can play all the games in the world without any probs even antialiasing should be ok.

    you can tweak it further with the nvtweak.reg file and with the one from Jason I think.

    Can you explain a bit about this nvtweak.reg file?

    it is a registry file, just a plain txt file but with the extension : .reg

    when you click it, it sets some entries in your registry. so when you browse through your drivers settings, you are able to overclock it, or auto overclock it, you can read the temps I believe, and you get the opportunity to do some other stuff like double monitor usage and so on...

    I think you can also do this using RIVA Tuner or Coolbits....I have coolbits with so I guess I have those tweaks.

    BTW, does nvtweak.reg still work for the ForceWare 7x.xx drivers?

    Coolbits is the same as nvtweak. the results are the same...only the name changes.

    I do believe it is possible still, cause I am doing it at the moment through nvtweak to overclock my videocard.
