I already had an HD4650 AGP *BUT* I couldn't leave the HD4670 behind. It was on clearance plus the blower style cooler will help to move air out of the case.


:rockout:
good luck with that HD46xx AGP card as ATI/AMD's agp hotfix drivers after 8.12 are very crash happy at the desktop

I was using 11.8 with Win7 64bit without much issue. I got a few in game crashes with Crysis 2 but that was it (might have more to do with the no-cd crack than the driver itself). XP 32bit on the other hand doesn't seem to work with anything above 11.1; with 11.2-11.4 it wouldn't even bootup and 11.5-11.7 limited my card to 256 colors for some reason. :confused:

I didn't test 11.8 in XP, I had already installed Win7 at that point so I don't know if the issues continue or not. Anyway I'll use Win7 Home Premium with the HTPC so the drivers should work fine.

Managed to install the RAM heatsinks on the 4670 but it was a little tricky. Didn't want to remove the cooler for that.





Goodbye :cry:

Ouu, better than my HTPC lol. Mine is my old NF7-S with some extreamly old video card that I cant even find a name of! It's fine though, the tv I use it on is a old CRT 36" tv, doesn't even have HDMI.

Maybe a Matrox? or an Hercules? (can't recall if the Hercules had TV out) :confused:




Just finished with the HTPC:




By a stroke of luck the cooler was a perfect fit. There's no space between the fan and the DVD-R :eek:




Winstalling.... ;)

There you go, I have googled everything on that card, I cant find drivers or anything. and I just realized how much of a jump my pc has made in 1 year. Last augaust I got my NF7-S, with my 480watt psu, a Geforce 6800GT, athlon xp with a unstable oc at 3.2ghz It's amazing that I went from that, with a 22" crt, to the beast (to me) of a pc I have now..

ah i remember those things, i've seen quite a few in Dells and such. I always thought it was odd how it was cut like that (i think there were some I/O ports under the notch on the dell mobo, or was it IBM...). Was kinda cool that you could upgrade the vram back then. 4 or 8mb probably. I think xp has the drivers for that built in, but good luck finding them on a newer OS.

I used to have an AIW Rage 128 pro, then later an AIW7500.

drivers for xp http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/legacy-xp.aspx

and yea that is quite an upgrade. I do miss my NF7-S build though. it was capable of 2 monitors and a tv at the same time with no FPS drop in every game that was out at the time. (game on one large screen, web on the other crt, and aim and vent windows on the tv) Abit NF7-S 2.0, 1GB XMS 400mhz, ATI 9600XT 256MB OC to 575, Athlon xp 2500 OC to 3200+, nForce 2 audio, 160gb hdd, xp pro

a screenshot of my clan days. I was in Wolves in Exile for a few years (us east), mostly did CS1.6, CS:S, and the trio of blizzard games wc3/wow (i've yet to play wow), starcraft/bw, and d2. I also did a lot of warrock beta testing, that game was so awesome! this was my 2006-2007 year in school haha.

x64 or x86 for the home premium maybe the drivers just don't like my mates machine he runs win7 x86 tried 11.8 and gets really good gaming with DX or OpenGL but as soon as he's back to the desktop it's crash/recover every few minutes

Got a few projects happening here !!!

Just finished an upgrade to my old rig - added a heat exchanger and radiator to the Soprano rig. Painted the inside black and blue - got scratched up heaps during assembly though. Cut out the top panel (USB, sound jacks ect) and put 120mm fan in it's place. Cut a few slots in the case for cable management, sheathed a few cables - damn that takes forever. Always more to do, but for an old rig I'm pretty happy with it.

The NZXT case is the current workhorse with an I7 2600k running the show with an Inno GTX 570 pushing out the pictures. BIG air cooler with double fans keeps this running cool as. Haven't done any mods to this yet but it will get the treatment probably over Christmas break.

The Antec case is my current project focus right now and will have the Koolance radiator loop installed tomorrow. I7 920 with Inno 3D GTX 570 video, Zalman 1000w PSU, Geil Ram under the Dominator RAM cooler, 200m top case fan, 120mm fans front and back, 120GB Vertex 3 SSD and 3 x Black WD 2TB HDDs. XSPC 750 pump and res combo with 3/8" hose and fittings, Zalman CPU block, cable management +++.

The Gigabyte Aurora 3D case is going to be my favourite I think. Trickiy case for cable management, had to cut out a few rails behind the motherbaourd to fit the cabeling as it is quite a thin space. Cabeling starting to look good now !!! ASRock Xtreme 4 MB, I5 2500K CPU, Silverstone Strider 850w PSU, 2 x Gainward GTX 570 graphics, 16 GB ripjaws RAM under the AC fans, 240GB Vertex 3 SSD< 3 x 2TD WD Black HDDs, XSPC 750 pump and res combo with 1/2" hose and fittings Thermochill TA120.2 Radiator, HeatKIller Rev 3 CPU block,

x64 or x86 for the home premium maybe the drivers just don't like my mates machine he runs win7 x86 tried 11.8 and gets really good gaming with DX or OpenGL but as soon as he's back to the desktop it's crash/recover every few minutes
System:
- Asrock 775i65G (865/ICH5 chipset)
- Pentium E5800
- 2x 1GB DDR400
- HIS HD4650 DDR3 AGP
- Turtle Beach Montego DDL soundcard
- BFG Phyxs PPU PCI
- SATA RAID PCI card

Win XP 32bit:
10.2, worked fine (this is what I was using with my old X1950PRO so I knew it worked)
10.9, worked fine
11.1, worked fine
11.2-11.4 locks on bootup
11.5 - 11.7 limits display to 256 colors


Win 7 64bit:
11.1, worked fine, Crysis 2 crashes sporadically
11.8, worked fine, Crysis 2 crashes sporadically

I've seen people claiming that 11.5 works for them (that's why I tried to update from 11.1 to 11.5 in the first place) so I guess that each system responds differently.

, my burners never seem to die, I have one that's yellow with age and runs at 12x and it's still working fine... I need to go on a smashing spree
I can beat that I still got my MSI 8x4x8x burner and it still chugs along it's the best one for doing sensitive stuff as I can turn the burn speed down to 1x none of the other burners I have will let me go lower than 4x LOL
