LOLOL you beat me http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_udp_winxp_2.45.html
I am stress testing right now prime95 torture ran 7 1/2 hours at 190 fsb , now I upped the anti and am at 12 x 200 = 2.4 Ghz so I wont be able to try these until sometime later maybe tonight I want to let prime95 burn me in at 200 FSB
Downloaded and installed on our other nforce2 board the MSI K7N2G and they seem fine, of course will give it a few hours in the hands of my 16 year old I am sure he will find any hangup's if there are any
Sorry to have beat you to it Kermit,
Hehe, running them here - no problems (yet!)
Those look good 3DMarks for a 4200 btw.
Thank you I did that on the MSI K7N2G with this cpu and ram the board was 2 weeks old , I passed that to my kids and have not yet tried with this set-up The Gigabyte is by far faster and more stable when in the high FSB and right now I am at the magic 200 FSB but I am stress testing , I will go for 3dmark when I have found the sweet spot on this rig. And now I have the new drivers to install and I might end up starting over on the overclock , who knows how it will react if I switch out the mobo drivers.
Thanks I always smile when I think about the $120U.S I paid for this card monthes ago I am very pleased at its performance / cost ratio

Is Windows 98SE supported under Nforce 2 (MSI) I'm just curious thats all, if they do drivers or anything.
Yes they do support win98 dont matter what mobo its all unified so nforce boards do win98se
Thanx for posting that info Kermit. Wasn't sure whether the geforce2 mx was included with it.
ps: One word for you hippy doofey starts with G any guesses?
Kinda old news but i have been running htem for a while now and all is good
One does anyone use the Sound Storm chip and what do you think about the drivers and the sound. When I load this version there is a noticed lack in bass and I've gone back to the older drivers. Does anyone have this issue or notice it. Also have I missed steps and maybe the driver is not loading the way it should. I would love to have the fixes for this release but to lose bass to me is not worth it and what does that say about the drivers. Also I hear this flaw is there even other flaws in the old driver. I like the Sound Storm alot but I am so use to the Audigy but again hated their drivers also and lack of updates.
any help would be excellent
thats what I think of it
question, you are plugged into the center port right ? I would imagine so. Did you try to select the center in windows sound volume control in the advanced tab ????
I imagine you did all this but just wanted to see if I could help.
did that i think it just doesn't like my speakers
Damn download didn't work. Have to try again. DAMN dialup.
Can anything be done about games that are set to maximum brightness & are still too dark?
I always liked powerstrip's application launcher for that you could create a custom profile for the game in question and when you launch it powerstrip kicks in
Thanx Kermit found it. The program is shareware. Do you know what limitations are on it?
none just a little nag screen when you start the program but its fully functional , you just need to let the little timer tick down
