  6. Are the 586 architecture based Cyrix MII chips any good? What are your opinions?

    I just bought a system with a questionable CPU choice - A Cyrix M-II 300MHz. I bought the system mainly for the case. It is a fully functioning custom built system with 64MB of ram and a 1MB PCI 2D...

    Would the visuals be any different if I used Windows 7 on the same system? XP is limited to DirectX 9. Win7 supports up to DirectX 12. Will there now be a difference in the visuals between the 3...

    Since Microsoft chose to add DirectX 12 support for Windows 7, they might as well add DirectX 11.2 support as well. (11.2 is Win8.1 exclusive)

    I'll go as far as Windows 7/8.1 supported games. I'd rather avoid Windows 10 anything. There's many older titles to choose from. So that being said I don't need a DirectX 12 supporting card. (I'll be...

    I did some searching too and a thread on Vogons says the GTX 960 and the R9 270X are the best.
