    You should be able to get quite good performance out of your card just by backing off of some of the high quality settings.

    Without knowing what resolution you're running at (and this matters a lot), I'd say that you're trying to push your card a bit too much. 32-bit color and Trilinear Filtering put a big damper on...

    You should be using the latest 5.20 drivers. Those were the first that allowed me to play Half Life in OpenGL mode, and I've been loving it ever since.

    D3D works quite well if you ask me. I haven't had any troubles with it, and the performance is not bad either.

    How long do you think it'll be until we get "real" dual-head from our G400s http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

    I hope it is a simple change that they can integrate into their next driver release.

    The truth is that, for gaming, it is more worthwhile to spend your money to get a single fast cpu than 2 slower ones. In Quake 3, for instance, you only get a few FPS advantage using r_smp 1 at...

    The numbers in my benchmarks are probably a bit deflated from reality, because it is a completely untweaked install. For instance, once I tweak the settings a bit, turning off Ejecting Brass, for...

    State of the G400 in Windows 2000

    To be fair, the G400 cannot be compared to a Geforce in terms of 3d performance. In most cases the G400 hangs around with the TNT2U, but it has other features that make us users of it not want to...

    Custom Resolutions with W2K + 5.10beta?

    Since the new 5.10 beta drivers have monitor customization I thought it might be possible to add custom resolutions to the drivers, similar to the win9x drivers (1280x960 for instance).
