    In that configuration, your Opteron is doing 100% of the decoding. The OP is going to need either a recent Intel-based rig with embedded GPU (those models are the ones that include quicksync...

    Not knowing what the capabilities of the video card are made it very difficult to talk to David after VCFMW about a game programming idea he had. He was wondering out loud about clipping and I...

    I have never heard of 1.44, so like you, I'm very curious to see it! While I've written a nice utility to dump all option roms + the BIOS, I can't find it online right now, so you could point the...

    You'll need a duplicate card or monitor to verify where the fault lies, and then you can continue troubleshooting.

    My mistake. I agree, just replace the fans, they're about the same cost as the lubricant to fix them.

    Everyone's talking about fixing the fans, but I keep coming back to this:



    That's a lot of fans. They shouldn't all be going to the point where they're noisy, unless you run the system full...

    +1 for hitting F5 to get a perfectly playable Doom on a 386DX-40. With a framerate that good, you don't care that it's half-res.
