    Re: AGP card still kicking

    I bought this NF7-S ver 2 in 2004, and I have not updated the BIOS since. No funky mods, and if it ain't broke don't fix it. I almost tried some of the modded BIOS but I also heard that the Abit BIOS is easy to fubar, so I skipped it. I have a friend in Scotland that is really good at configuring the NF7-S, he scored some of the best scores on Extremeoverclocking.com, if you ever want some advice just check out there socket A stuff in the forums. Have fun !

    I agree with your assessment of the AGP thing at present by the way.

    ...so how did the X1650GT turn out? What games (and FPS / resolution) do you get out of it?

    Re: AGP card still kicking

    I had one of those Timex Sinclair with the chicklets keyboard and a cassette tape for loading programs. Bought it from a friend, but I never got it running. Next PC was an 80286 I purchased from a place I worked. I believe it had a CGA video card but I was able to run the old SSI gold box games on it. The thing was a clone and in a case that could have been used to anchor a modern day cruse ship.

    Went from that to an NEC Ready 7022 with a PENTIUM 75. My god I was styling then. Hexon, Heritic, Quake…. Those were the days.

    And it was that NEC computer, and it’s lack of upgradeability, that forced me to start building my own systems.
    Game - BIOSTAR TA785 A2+ / Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 125W / Patroit 8GB DDR2 800 CAS 4 Timing: 4-4-4-12 / Sapphire HD 6870 1GB / Antec Three Hundred Case / PC Power & Cooling S61EPS 610W / X-Fi XtremeGamer / Western Digital 640GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s /Windows Vista home premium 64 SP1

    Back up - Biostar 6100-939 / A64 3800 Venice(Stock 2.4) / 1.5 GB Corsair XMS 3200 / HD3870
