Re: Help finding/understanding antennae

Hi Bandit They network card you have there is essentially a laptop network card, which requires the very small connectors This is the best example I could find.

I have a pair of the Logitech Z623's which can pump out a fair amount of amazing sound... Enough to annoy the neighbours. But I think they go for around R1500 to R2000.

A lot of Mobile graphics cards (ie, the nVidia "GO" series) use drivers never intended for gaming, and are often incompatible/simple just 'don't play nice' with some games.

The specs are as follows: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.66GHz, 512MB of RAM, nVidia GeForce 448 Go, Windows XP Service Pack 3.

Not an OC guru, but that's weird stuff, I reckon it could possibly happen...I mean, I have a similar (unsolved) case of where, when I had one graphics card in, a certain game was almost unplayable, but put a second card in of the same make, not connected to anything and it was smooth as can be :?

That is what I thought, but I dont know what others using this card are getting. I suppose I will start looking for a better cooler \ Did a quick search, and some peoples fans were only going up to 30% on "automatic" control. Don't have an Nvidia card anymore so not sure how one would check this. Y...

Well up in the highveld here I used to use 95 in my lil 1.3 Bantam... Maybe it was in my head but 95 gave it slightly better performance than 93, which on the 1.3 you needed all you could get!
