Re: Best grapic card for World of Warcraft

Ya know, it worked well for normal stuff, but... It seems to be severely limited as I push it towards gaming maximums and overclocking. I updated all the drivers and the BIOS. Nevertheless, I need a new Mobo. I hate Intel. Just won't go with them. It's a long story as I hated designing around them back in the days of the 8080 and that has stuck with me. I prefer AMD. I can salvage the I/O boards, the Phenom II x6, the heat pipe, power supply, case, etc. What a pain in the arse this has become.

I didn't migrate was a fresh install.

Sorry, I didn't get that. Could you please clarify that comment?

A fresh install means installing the OS on a freshly formatted hard drive. Not by copying another drive.

I am currently playing on a rig with one of those overpriced Nvidia branded GTX 560ti's from Best Buy. Works well. Said rig has an AMD 920 X4 and 6gb of DDR2 ram. 1680x1050 res.

cheap F'n board.

lol exactly my opinion on it as well.

Cheap is being kind. No problems with the new board. An unbelievable improvement. No freeze ups with the GeForce 450 now. Graphics are much better.

BTW there is a driver update for most GeForce boards: version 301.42 as per the older version - »us.battle.net/support/en/article···tedvideo.

I have only been running v301 on the GTX 450 for a few days. No problems yet. I appreciate the link to the fix.

Ok! Nothing happened. Must be a system specific glitch. After all, we all know how SE houses test the crap out of all their software products now-a-days.

Years ago, the idea of 'updates' was never necessary.
