*Sigh* :( There are SOOO many threads popping up generally about the same thing. Quite a lot of threads have been made about "Will this graphics card run HL2" etc. Well quite frankly (Or bobly...Sorry that's weak :lol: ) it's getting annoying, so i'm creating this thread for ANY technical/hardware related discussion. After I have made this thread, any other tech threads that pop up afterwards will be deleted. Other tech threads coming about though is probably just an inevitable fact, beacuse all t3h nubs popping up ignore/don't read the rules unfortunatly :uhm:
Ummm, ACK? :eek: Please leave da' azzkiker thread alone? :bawl: (If you haven't already deleted it as of this post) I dunno if we'd really be able to fit the technical all into this thread, but w/e...we'll erm...try.
EDIT: :confused: :confused: :confused: *Cries* threads merging...I'm confused. I'm gonna have probs keeping up with you nik....
Bah! I arsed up and now i'm really shitty :mad: I just created this thread and then merged it with another, accidentally deleting the one I created. Anywho, the general idea behind this thread is to stop the multiplication/cloning (heh) of threads about the same thing. Theres many, many threads laying about the place asking "Will this gfx card run HL2...?" Everyone, post your tech related questions in here PLEASE! Anyothers not in here will be deleted.
Threads merged 1, 2, 3.

What? This has nothing to do with Azzkiker's thread... That one stays. It's just the new threads popping up all the time about the same thing which is really annoying.
I didn't make it!
umm yes i have a question do u think that the DOD source will be relested for the poeple he buy the regular edtion hl2??
blade_prodigy. Also, *all* 9600's are crap, period. I don't care what version, SE, Pro, norm, or XT. My 9500Pro out performs them all. Unlock and Overclock. Matter of fact, I'm not just outperforming the 9600's, I'm out-performing the X600 by 2x the FPS or more, the 9700Pro's...umm...all of the GeForce 5 models... You get the idea. My benchmark is UT2004 btw. Which ironically, is a GeForce oriented game, and I still pwnt the GeForce's a generation ahead. Pretty sad, considering I paid 160 dollars for my video card awhile back. It's a powercolor. This doesn't mean I'm suggesting you buy a 9500Pro, I still say you get a 9800, but still...9600....bleh.
Well the 9500 is the 9800 Se. It has 8 pipes but 4 are locked and the clock is lower. a little modding around you can unlock them. And yes how you have yours set up it does owne the 9600's alt least your getting you $$$'s worth out of your card:D. I got a 9000pro so it only has 4 piplines so i did some overclocking on it with the ATi tool. stock: 250/200(core/memory) OC'ed to maxium: 301/236(statred getting artifacts any higher) Also my card is only about 85F with the stock heatsink. I have a nicely placed 120mm side fan that blows over the card to keep it cool:D. Thnat going to be nice when i get my x800Xt:naughty:.
