got a 6600 non-gt and overclocked the core past that of a 6600gt on stock cooling. granted, it was an asus card with a good heatsink. 6600...
closest thing i can find
what do you mean by kinda laggy?
you can not use nvidia drivers, not even that, your system doesnt even have a single nvidia component let alone a nvidia video card.
are you running with aa or af on?
o/c will get near identical results toward a 9800xt. If you dont want to risk damaging the card, and want more performance from it, o/c would be...
It is possible to run an R360 core 9800 with a modified R350 bios, which is why so many people are finding R360 cores on 9800pro cards. The R360...
Actually, ATI Tool just pulls the bios information stored in the chip.
Like I said, only way to be totally sure is to pull the heatsink off and...
do not, i repeat, DO NOT get the 64-bit version of the card
in fact, how much are you willing to spend on a video card? if its around $100, you...
usually if dots appereared, that meant that you were pushing the monitor pass spec
suggestion: play games at 1024-768 75hz
spend the extra 2 dollars and buy the non referbished one
where did you get the p/s?
its more or less a pen then a sharpe, or some kind of marker that marked those components (they are seen on the transistors)
in essence, yes. ATi requires a 300watt powersupply, but i hear people running 9800 pros in small form factor boxes (sff) with 125-240 watts
strange, never encoutered that before... the only way to be totally sure is to look at the core.
unplug the network cable
there is no 9700 64 bit version
a 5700LE is avaliable for PCI, its not 128-bit though. you should get anything thats 128-bit i.e. 9100 pci
