Haha. Until you get a dedicated GPU for that rig of yours, you'll remain a lowly peon for life!
Man, I'm loving this card. Finally got the 10.4 agp hotfix drivers to work. The sythetic benches completely blow away my old 9600 PRO, but, in actual gaming, the bottleneck is apparent. Only tried Aion so far, so it might vary from game to game, but still. I can just feel it: the GPU wants to skyrocket those FPS numbers, but the CPU says "nowai, you're not going there without me >:]". What I also find peculiar is the voltage. I always thought it should be a constant that depends on the slot, at least with AGP cards (1.5V or 3.3V, for the extremely old ones)
BAM! - 1.2V
Now I gotta get a new mobo ASAP, since my whole rig is sitting on a single 14A 12V rail, and the 4-pin 15A second rail is pointlessly lying around
Damn you, old ASRock mobo. Damn you!
Gaming Graphics: 6.7
I'm seriously tempted to get a low-end 775 mobo with Pentium D support right now... Must... Resist... The urge... s478/DDR/AGP is... the... real... deal...Edited by Hyoketsu - 5/31/11 at 11:57am
