HARDWARE FAILURE -- I AM BACK !!!!

Yesterday my GeForce 6200 went FUBAR....

Ended up getting some kind of funky pixel array like displays on the monitor, tested both my 19" Nokia and the old Gateway I bought @ the Library with the same effect. The monitor kept flashing on/off as if there was no signal and tests of the IGD on my motherboard couldn't run SWAT4.

My new Graphics card complete with a nice FAN ontop of the heat sink Smile

and my mother is out a $100 for the replacement... but she owed me most of it lol.

The good news is I also got upgraded nVidia drivers that should work with BOTH RvS and Swat4 and without losing the benifits of the newer drivers (eye candy) xD

when i played with the 8400, i found i was getting a constant 60fps in Rvs Spidey.

Although, 1 thing to note is, its not a gaming card...its designed for video; but still works awesome, because after all...It IS an 8 series.

With my 6200 I think I averaged 45-60fps in doors with RvS, high settings, 1024x768@highest refresh. But I have had enough performance tweaks to get max FPS out of RvS for a looonnnggggg time, I find it improves the floating gun situation.

So far I've found the performance of the 8400 lacking when running SWAT4 on max, but that is a game I would love to try dual 7800GTX or better just to benchmark the improved FPS rates hehe.

And here is an attractive stress-test using a demo on the drivers CD marked for GeForce 8800's hehe.

The 8400 can do good work but has problems keeping constant frame rates Beee

Hmm, that map would be worth it to considering the square footage of the shoot house.
