PC PITSTOP LABOR DAY UNLIMITED

Recommended Posts

The 158.18 and 158.22 are FM approved for 06 and 05 (both) and work with the 88's. Do they work with the Ultras?

Does the driver matter in PCMark05?

http://downloads.guru3d.com/download.php?id=32

 

Looks like there is some time for me to try different drivers before the contest I_G. I don't really think the drivers really matter on PCMark 05. The newest driver is not FM approved. Have used 3 different drivers in the past and they are not FM approved. I think they are pumping out drivers faster than FutureMark can approve them! :lol: If it's allowed would like to run PCMark 05 on Vista, and the other benchies on XP. Toss it around and let me know what you think!!

Ok I_G! Some may not think that would be fair and understandably cause not everyone has the option to use Vista and XP both for bench marks!

You can get better RAM at not much more cost. Geil, Crucial, Team, CellShock, ect.

Not really, it took me more time to get the old floppy drive working than the RAID.

Blazing fast hard drive speed. With RAID 0 the data is striped between the drives, so they can work together.

You should notice a nice difference with anything that reads and writes a lot to the hard drive. First thing you notice is Windows boots faster.

He is right about that. I used stock Nvidia drivers for Forum Wars and they were unapproved. Like Ocean said, FM can't keep up with the flood of drivers.

 

Oh yeah, count me in!! :P
