    Sorry if this seems a bit "off-topic" :rolleyes: but what's with the messages that pop up when you "hover" over a word that's highlighted in green? Haven't been on the Forums in a while but something seems to have changed a bit! :cool: Anyhow, to get back "on Topic" i see a few Threads about flashing the BIOS of an FX5900 to make it a 5950 but i see no mention of it being "do-able" with a Creative 3D Blaster 5 FX5900 Ultra :( am i to lose out on an "upgrade?" :)

    What I found funny is the way it highlighted the 'hidden' in your post title as green :)

    Afaik it's an extra source of funding for website owners, as it's a subtle form of advertising that isn't too intrusive (hover over a highlighted word and you'll see). If I remember it's called Intellitxt... Driverheaven has it too, however they have the option to turn it off.

    go here and follow the instructions to install the HOSTS file. It'll get rid of all the green words and ads too! It really works... I was dubious my self when i 1st tried it!
