ATI Radeon 9800XT Headache

it will be complete system upgrade time then when pci-express hits... The 9200 really is a pretty sharp performer for people who don't want to spend a fortune, and it can be had for under $50. It only does this for Open GL (I don't want to use D3D because the performance really suffers -- it doesn't seem to bottleneck with this though). Alternate drivers for Radeon 9800XT radeon 9800xt 128mb or radeon 9800 pro 256 mb Radeon 9800XT Multi Monitor deep fry??? 256 DDR ATI Radeon 9800XT & WP2 ? have a peek here

Any other slot caused headaches. These cards aren't good values by any stretch—buy a Radeon 9600 Pro if it's value you want—but the Radeon 9800 XT is our graphics exotic of choice. 117 comments — Last I am one of the few people who can see the flicker of CRT's at 85hz. If there is an incompatibility theres usually a patch to fix the problem out the very next day.

It ain't cheap. My main interest is in simultaneously hosting and playing multiplayer Neverwinter Nights on the same PC, so I'm looking for a card to take as much graphics load as I can He has a fast system P4 3 gig 1 gig ram and radeon 9800xt. So, I have gone that route..._________________meh...

so if I'm doing some c++ in vc2 and fglrx decides it wants to flicker, I have to switch to vc7 and then back to get back my display. Are ATI cards worth all the headaches the drivers give? I dont wont to start a flame but I really like ATI at the moment. https://forum.pcmech.com/threads/picking-a-video-card-need-your-help-picking-causes-massive-headaches.89843/ Deus Ex 2 runs perfectly fine on his machine.

On my last VIA based machine I could only use PCI slot 1 for my soundcard. The 5900 should be faster though, and the 9800 should be faster than the 5900, especially if you want to use fsaa/af. COPYRIGHT © 1998- · MECHLER ENTERPRISES, LLC. I thought that chipset used pc2700(ddr266).

A 17" is 17 inches not 16 like in CRT's so I only lost an inch when I downgraded from my 19". navigate here It just depends on the manufacturer. So I uninstalled the new stuff and reinstalled either the driver from the cd or just some older ones off ati's site (i don't remember which) and everything worked again. The time now is 11:02 AM.

Night and day. 8x slaps 4x around. My friend mentioned that he had the same problem till he got a new soundcard and added more memory. ARogan 2004-01-29 15:25:34 UTC #8 I agree with Xaroc.The best bang for the buck right now is probably the geforce fx 5900 non-ultra's.

The nvidia cards have great stock cooling. Oh and that card comes with a full version of Call of Duty which normally runs at least $40. Join the community here.

As far as I understand it the 9200 is slower than the fx5200U, and the fx is slower than a gf3ti200!

I just got it and I love it. Piece of crap. For information on regaining access to your Eidos Forums account on the new forums, see this thread. He hasn't had any problems.

I can get it to run as root as long as I leave xfwm4 as my window manager, but when I run as a user with an identical .xinitrc (using startx), I remember when Deus Ex 1 came out and it was a monster resource hog at 800*600 w/16 bits.

SurgeryJan 9, 2006, 1:50 AM No, it's not the hard drive I don't think, because it never did this with the old card. Anything longer than 25ms will ghost unacceptably (this is a generalisation) for most people. I'll get the Asus as soon as I can. Don't know the model but it's top of the line.

March/April when newer games will start hitting like Doom3, ut2k4, maybe HL2 (I think it will be late), then see how you current setup plays them, and by then cards like VascularJan 9, 2006, 3:56 AM Make sure you have D3D sound and EAX sound turned off in the sound settings.
