I current have a Nvidia 8600GT 512mb DDR2, but am looking for the best bang for the money
Going for 4870 or 4890 should make ya plenty happy. Stunning power/cost ratio.
I just ordered the 4870 @ £155.24 this seems to be factory over clocked to the ofters I have seen
Here's a review about that card, it also tells you a bit about overclocking it.
I have also ordered some fans (1 goes at the front and takes up 3 5.25" bays and the other is an exhaust fan that takes up 2 spaces in the back of the case) from eBay as I heard the card runs hot.
Yeah the ATi cards do run hot(but it doesn't matter) , but with the card youv'e bought it's got a award winning cooling system on it , so it will run cooler than a stock card
No?! The ATi cards are cool compared to the current Nvidia range. My 4850 doesn't go above 66deg Celsius. And at friends their HD4870 is about 80-85 which isn't hot at all for a graphics card.
You´re gonna love that for sure
just so as you know, I had mine connected up via this method on my PC. It works ok, but for one drawback - you dont get any form of feedback or vibratin on the wheel. It seems that MS didnt creat any FFB drivers for the wheel in windows.
Would be interested to know whether you get it to work on your Mac though!
Who is gonna buy a receiver to connect the worst wheel ever build to a PC?
Then spend the money for such a receiver on a decent wheel
Been having connectivity problems now for almost two weeks. two weeks of no racing, at least not online and i hold you responsible, Ziggo.
So when your mechanic comes on tuesday he better fix my problem. If not; be warned, he's coming to the hague and he won't leave this city alive.
Oh and something else, telling someone to reset his modem a 100 times doesn't work...get your head out of your @ss!!!!
rant over...for now
I felt the same for months! Casema, Orange, Ziggo or how they are called tomorrow is really bad!
No Ziggo wouldn't be the one I chose for. For a stable connection I'd take DSL through a KPN line. Even tho' that's not really fast. BBned (also a DSL copper supplier) is faster but less stable.
poasting in a spice girls thread
Lol actually if I remember Bram correctly what I said to you when you told me you have Ziggo was: bleh and something like HA-HA
and now I say again.........HA-HA
no seriously get rid of that p.o.s. provider.......I had some really bad experience with them that I avoid them forever....(they charged me for cable while I never subscribed to them lol )
like Johan said....go with a dsl line.....at least one that uses KPN line...
that is what I have with now Telfort 20Mbit
No I'm not really fond of the helpdesk at Telfort. My neighbours have Telfort. And well during the day they have 6mbit. (Max here). But in the evenings the speed is at 1mbit. Telfort keeps saying it's a virus.. So I tested with my own laptop and still the same. But why can I download full speed at home, and I get 80mbps at school through my laptop and in the evenings there just 1mbit..
Their helpdesk is damn expensive as they don't want to answer through mail.
I'm at Online now for 2 years (also through KPN) and never had any problems. Ping is at 9ms. And well Online has the best advert atm..
I don't have a KPN line anymore Only call mobile!
But there still is a line to your house? And as far as I know you don't need to buy Telephone anymore if you only take it for DSL.
That's at least the case in my gf's student house. They have Telfort. They only pay for DSL. It's just €4 more expensive per month than if you also use the phone line
