Here's my config:

Abit BH-6 V.1.0! SS Bios (older than the dust in my mid-tower)
Celeron 566 @ 850 (100 FSB)
Xtasy GeForce 3 Ti200 @ 230/455
SB PCI 16 (Cheap!! Like me =) )
Currently scoring 4401 3Dmarks 1024x768 32bit no AA

My question:

Does the 8 Light High Poly Count test kick your rig right in the scrotum? I swear it is sweating out 3 FPS. I have an AMD 1800+
and Epox 8KHA+ mobo on order and hope to do a little better, but wow, this looks pathetic. Also the Xtasy card has heatsinks on the DDR that doesn't get warm much but it artifacts at 460-470 pretty bad. I guess it isn't the 4.5 ns stuff the Gainwards have =(. (I paid $99 for it) Any way to improve without spending more cash? I REMOVED a fan to help out. I think my 235W PS was struggling with the load. Have a nice day

Hi Magg22

I think you will find that your Mobo is the bottle neck you will be okay once you set up your new rig.
