    The AWE64 Gold is a pretty fine card.

    My favourites are:

    TerraTec EWS64 XL, 1200.JPG

    Advanced Gravis ULTRASOUND MAX 2.1, 1200.JPG

    these are ISA- Cards, my absolute favourite is the PCI TerraTec DMX 6fire 24/96.

    Damn nice photography also Backfire!!

    What are you using for your background? And what lighting are you using?

    I also like the style of font your using on them. Pretty classy looking.

    Hehe, I'm using a Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7 digicam and the background is a white sheet of thick paper. The lighting is various, from an officedesk- lamp up to two 100W halogen spots.
    The magic is the software. I'musing IrfanView & PhotoScape which are both freeware. I'll show you a picture as it comes from the camera.

    demo 800.jpg

    I just reduced the size to 800px width.

    edit: the name of the font in the upper left corner is "neuropol", the name of the font for the "Backfire" sign is "flexsteel".

    Hello kids, today we are talking about the color "blue". Look, the sky is blue! The water is blue, too. Cookie monster is blue. The AsRock board is blue ...

    That Asrock upgrade mobo was cool, I remember when those hit the market. Too bad that almost nobody bought the upgrade cards, instead everybody just upgraded their motherboards. :D

    edit: At least those are damn hard to find as used ones here in Finland. :(

    Damn I'm drunk as hell but I',m listening to Doom3 theme from youtube and I think should I begin to play it again.. Damn it was nice when I ran it first time smoothly, I had an Asus 6800LE @ 15/5 pipes & 380/950 clocks.. overclocked like mad <3


    edit: I simply need more coffee and cigarettes, don't want to be drunk anymore. :)
    edit2: Eating some delicious chicken seems to help too :)

    I built my first pc to be able to play DOOM 3. Asus motherboard (don't remember which one), AMD Athlon 64 3200+, ATI 9600XT (I wanted the 9800XT - too expensive though), 1GB of RAM, cheap PSU and case. I had a lot of fun playing DOOM 3 and Quake 4 on that pc:)

    i played D3 and Q4 (and Eve Online xD) on my Athlon XP (Barton@2.25~) rig KT6V with a Geforce FX 5900 ultra and 1 gb RAM never had any lag or such (iirc i played it with all settings at max) :D

    you coul've afford the 9800XT (or not) if you took (or kept) a XP instead of the 64 (BTW winchester or Clawhammer?) who was a bit useless without 4gb and more RAM (Doom3, also, didn't had a 64bit exe right? ) but the 64 had SSE2 instr.

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    @Backfire. Hey I also have the original Radeon 64ddr gpu. I still have the full retail package. I also have a full retailed boxed Rage Fury Pro and a Radeon 9500 Pro. I am going to resurrect my kt7a over the weekend. I too had it @ 2200 mhz. It is running a geforce fx5700 and 1.5 gb of mem. Just need to decide with sound board to put in it. I have a sb live, sb audigy , audigy 2, audigy 2 zs and a aureal sq2500 to choose from. And it will be an xp machine.
