omg rofl. you just beat me and my core was 2400 mhz. thats sooo your gpu core and memory talking. my np doesnt seem to want to do more than 330 memory. im wondering if flashing to pro bios would be worth it, or even xt.
see instead of spending the money on yet another ti4200, and mobo, you could have almost had enough for a 9700. which would have been much better. but whatever, its your money. you sput all these claims about cards not being worth it, but you WASTE money on a card you already have, and a mobo you dont need. why is that "worth it" but somebody who wants to upgrade their card, that is not worth it? ohhh, i know because you are stuck on the ti4200 and 3dmark2k1. somehow that is WORTH IT, for you to buy another card and mobo so your score will increase in a damned benchmark, but for someone coming from a ti200 and wanting to play games, it is not worth it to upgrade to a 9700 or 9800? i dont know how you rationalize things. you can talk about price, and whatever else you want, but the simple fact is, you could have bought a 9700 instead of the new card and mobo, and your scores would have increased, as well as your overall gaming experience.like i said its your money, do as you wish with it, but stop telling people what is worth it and what is not worth it, it is getting VERY old. "worth" is completely subjctive. you are willing to spend money on a new card and mobo, that will have very little increase to your overall gaming experience, and you think that is worth it. im going out on a limb here, but i am going to say that most other people will agree with me on this one in saying that, it is not worth it.
by the way, the avatar is a picture from maddox's site.

I am selling my old ti4200 that does 290/600 for a new one thatll do 340/700 and also my old one is 64mb, the new one is 128mb!!!!! a 9700 would set me back $200 and if I didnt upgrade my other components, my card would be bottlenecked by old hardware. Itll be the strongest link in my pc. and yes I will game with this ti4200 after breaking 17k marks sure I could probably get 17k marks now with a 9700 pro but 17k on a ti4200 is much more impressive and also games like a fast cpu. I have no need for a 9700 pro, im getting a SUPER DUPER fast ti4200!!!!!!!!!!
like i said, it is not worth it. its not even worth the trouble of setting up the new hardware, for an increase you will never notice. like i also said, its your money, so do as you please. but dont sit there and say it isnt worth it for someone else to spend money an a card, when you think it is worth it to spend more money on hardware that will make a small increase in performance.
God damnit, i just baught ram too, too bad it will be a limiting factor to breaking the 20k berrier when i 3d mark should i do it in single channel mode? i think my ram will do 220 in single mode, it does 217 in dual, but i havent really tried to push it in favour of keeping the timings strict. my micron ram did 2.5-2-3-6 or somthing, this ram should be able to beat that at 220 mhz <_<.
is there a way to flash the bios WITHOUT a floppy drive? I managed to get my score over 20k, but only in 640x380, my non standard score if you will.
