Re: NVIDIA Forceware 196.75 Drivers Made Available For Download

All drivers starting from 190.XX have given my BSODs under Windows XP. I have not tested them thoroughly under Windows 7, but I think it's a heat issue. My 8800GT, which uses the stock single slot cooler, runs very hot so I avoid anything that would increase the temperature.

Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Video Card Requires 600W Power Supply

Does Rollo really get free stuff from Nvidia? Anyway, the path for Fermi has been long and twisted, but we'll see at the end if it has been worth it. I am glad that both companies will have DirectX 11 cards by the end of it. I want more companies to take advantage of those awesome DirectX 11 feature...

Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Video Card Pictures From CeBIT

From my understanding, this thing will be about two times as powerful as the GTX 280. It even draws enough power to be like two cards in one. PhysX + 3D Vision is certainly possible. Though the demos they had shown relatively recently (rocketsled, water, hair with tessellation) had all been running ...

Re: NVIDIA Forceware 196.75 Drivers Made Available For Download

That's quite the driver release. I am especially interested in the official anti-aliasing override support for Mass Effect 2. I already beat the game, though. The aliasing did not bother me enough for an unofficial solution, but this is definitely nice to have. One question: What exactly are these p...

Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Video Card Requires 600W Power Supply

I know my power supply is inadequate for many high end cards, but 600W minimum just seems like a lot to me, especially when it's close to the amount of minimum power a dual card solution requires. Then again, the card may match dual cards in raw performance numbers. Either way, I do not typically go...

Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Video Card Requires 600W Power Supply

Yikes! My 500W power supply is looking very weak right now. I wonder if this card is going to be efficient with the power it is given.

Re: Windows Experience Base Index Score Of 5.9

I was wondering why a topic about a 5.9 base index score was being made, turns out this was necroposted... Though it seems like anything less than an SSD gets a 5.9 under hard drive. That's what I have as a base, anyway.

Re: Could NVIDIA Be Announcing Fermi On Monday Morning?

Well we're going to find out in about 19.5 hours from this post. I'm somewhat excited. I've been looking forward to Fermi's release, so I'm hoping it has something to do with that.

Re: AvP Demo Released - Any Feedback?

I've played with this a bit. I prefer playing as the marine since I can shoot the others down very easily. It's a pretty lazy class, where I just sit around and shoot, maybe moving a little. The feeling that anything could creep up is pretty cool. Overall, this was a terrible experience. The online ...

The oven trick is when you cook an electronic part in the oven for a while. This is supposed to have a general soldering effect and has been reported to work by some.

Re: Windows XP takes forever to shutdown.

Thank you all for your advice. I wasn't about to fix it, but I guess I can live with it.

edit: I've been playing around with processes and I got it to not hang when I press the shutdown button in the start menu. I'll do some further investigation and update if I find anything.

Re: Could NASA be Grounded Indefinitely?

I have mixed feelings on this. While I would love to see space colonization a reality, I doubt I'll see it in my lifetime anyway. They're switching to more practical technologies that have a higher chance of returning a profit, at least in a more timely manner.

That's interesting. I wonder whether the spammer was trying to gain legitimacy by posting an actual technical question or the spammer actually had a problem.
