Okay so I got fed up of ATI/AMD's inability to fix their opengl driver and got me an 8800GTX. For those of you in the UK I got this card: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-051-OK

pushed the clocks yesterday to 626Mhz core, whatever RivaTuner set the shader clock to and 2000MHZ (1000MHZ real) off the bat and played Neverwinter Nights 2 addon for the next 12 hours without issue.

High point for me is the working OpenGL driver :)

Highly recommended from me.
 
ATI hardware isn't bad. They just can't get their OpenGL driver working :(

Having said that I'm exceedingly happy with the 8800GTX. Fast, works.

Addon you say? Not heard about that any good? I abandond the second game half-way through as I just can not run it how I would like on my 6800ultra looks weird if its not on my native screen res of 1680x1050 :(
 
I just hate thinking about how I could buy the latest super graphics card now but generally when I do the following week the next best thing is announced.

So I lie waiting, like a ninja.
 
I have had mine now for 10 months and it is a fantastic card ... congrats to you ! Mine is the GTS but it is in the same ball park ... at the time the GTX was a little too expensive .

I bought it on saturday while at work. Sunday I started playing at 9am and finished at 3am when I really had to sleep before work. It's awesome, where the original campaign gets boring.

There's nothing revolutionary on the immediate horizon, and you know it. NOW IS THE TIME TO STRIKE!

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
