WARNING!!!! to all AMD users (windows 64x) - Page 5

post #41 of 47
I was contemplating switching to vista 64 as I have it but I have heard that I will have lots of problem with my current hardware as there are not drivers for my stuff yet..price you pay for being on the cutting edge.

Is the OP's period button broken? I honestly can't read any of it.

let me revise my overal rating of this operating system as the problem was not the drivers or opperating system at all it was my turbocache on my video card.

once i set taht lower i havent seen a glitch yet after 5 mins of gaming..... useual glitching happened within 1 minute max

i will test the freezing now that i have 254mb more ram towards the actual system and i will rewrite my os review

I guess now would be a good time to tell you it is in the forum rules to use proper punctuation and grammar..

what do you think i could also do to change my processor to the 64 bit I'm more of a hardware person not the software aspect of all this (building and minor tweaking) not really advanced stuff so what would u suggest to make that change to 64?
Stepping isn't VERY hard for the 3200 series processors. Some are duds, while some are just friggin' fantastic. I wouldn't try upping the ante on your processor just yet. I'd look in the FAQ section with advanced search and find FAQ on overclocking the 3200 FTW. I would simply suggest getting an extra 512 or so, just so you can tackle processes without lagging. And, while we're at it, it'd be crucial to find a good PCI-E card, or AGP if you're still using AGP.

The 6200 with Turbo Cache is either a 16/32/64 MB card, and maxing it out will enable better things from it. It has no heatsink, meaning it dithers heat by letting time cool it off, as well as internal fans not on the card itself. That's why it's 32-bit. It can support 32-bit color, which is the factory standard these days. Any other way, and it'd be bollocks.

So, try getting at least a 512MB upgrade if it's affordable, and get a better video card, as per last suggestion. If 64-bit operating systems lead to a lot of problems by trying to force more and more out of your computer while gaming, take it down a couple of notches. Leave your system off for a full 24 hours, turn it on and run a memory testing program. Clear the cache off of your RAM, and try a fresh install of the drivers which seemingly work best, or most flawlessly when your system is active.

Good luck.


BTW, an excerpt from Nvidia 2 years ago....:

"The 6200 with TurboCache was designed for the mainstream user. Because of this we made some architectural design decisions such as not supporting color and z-compression. This is not a TurboCache limitation. This was a conscious design decision as most mainstream users play at medium resolutions with little or no filtering. In addition, there is also a known bug in the current ForceWare driver that effects AA performance. NVIDIA engineering is aware of this bug and is working on a fix now for a future driver release that will substantially increase filtering performance."

well im a few steps ahead here

the ram im gonna get when i cna afford it i have to see what i get for xmas im hoping for an opty 165 and an xfx 7600 but your alittle off on my card

its a 256 and it was 50$ i had to get soemeon that had open gl 2.0 and that was affordable my mobo died and yes it is pci 16x but right now im gonna wait on teh overclockign for some better ram than kingston valuram but as for the processor idk what up but it sure bottelnecks i know i never had much of a problem til i upgraded to this the graphics on teh turbocache i ... disabled the tc sorta i changed the allocation of ram to 2mb instead of 256 so i can run itunes and have a glitchy game or no music and run a glitch free game so i can settel with music and glitching just w.o music i cant but just i believe this os takes more tweaking than a normal system with my graphics and who knows more ram might fix the problem like that but like i said it all depends on the xmas stuff i get

refering back to the card yes it does have a heat sink but i took it off to put a heatsink with a fan intigraded into it and had a power hook up for it so it initially stays cooler tahn a normal card would i will post pics of it if anyone would like to see it

heres what i bought from new egg to help clear some things up for you
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814121010

thats the fan (close) basically but its a tinny bit smaller if thats a 40 mines a 30 it stays cooler
