    Apparently you can rent them out now. :hmm: If anyone here remembers when we used to play on heat.net over at the lightside; their servers were crappy but at least we could make private rooms and I was thinking of getting a private server.

    Which game? Q3? D3? UT2k4? HL2DM? others? Let me know; I might cross-post this over there...

    Right now I'm with dial-up so I don't think I could contribute. Rigth now I have Q3 and D3. What's the Dm stands for in HL2?

    Well, I'll need something to test out this bad boy; funny thing is there are 2 versions of this card (VIVO and non-VIVO). I ordered the non; they sent me the vivo version. Oh well. ;)

    Very nice! I run a Sapphire, and have been impressed.

    Yes I did. :D

    The AGP is actually about $40 cheaper than the PCI-x

    A vanilla 6800. All my scores are up, except for Doom3. I'm losing 5-10 fps. I know Carmack's engines favor nVidia, but still...

    This is it: http://www.bfgtech.com/6800OC.html

    HL2: Flies; running 1280x1024, 4x/8x
    UT2k4: Flies; now can run those frigging big Assault maps over 50 fps.
    Doom3: Still slow...noticiably :hmm:

    Mine's still a little faster than an 800xl. But I got tired of waiting for these to appear.

    Falcon-NW is building systems with 2 of those 512mB GF6800U's; let's just say it's not cheap. :p

    I would take a faster board with less mem over the the other option...

    BTW, I haven't forgotten about the original reason for this post; I'm still shopping around. I'll probably throw up a UT2k4 server, but I'm still waiting for Atari to get their shit together about pricing.
