    no. once the maps, textures, etc are loaded, it's all cpu/gpu. there are very few games that are constantly loading data from the hdd.

    I don't know of any for sure, but i'm not a super gamer. I've just heard different things. If you tried running DoomIII with Ultra settings, it would probably hit the swap file a lot.

    the point is, don't spend money on a new hdd with the hopes of increasing framerate. you will be disappointed.

    Correct, if you noticed, all the new games example HL2

    takes FOREVER!!!! to load at first of each scene, that's because is loading all the maps and textures, etc to RAM and Video RAM, then it becomes really fast when it's actually in play.

    benchmarks with XG75.90A drivers.

    Had to set the 2D to 401 to override the idle temp issue.

    I just use coolbits. Clean and simple.

    I was tweaking my mb ram timings last night. I might rebench this weekend. I need to get some sleep, though. I had a Red Bull and a Diet Dr. Pepper and I'm still zonked.

    Tightening my ram timings didn't make much diff in 05. I gained 2 points. not going to post a pic for that.

    hey midknyte...how are those drivers performing. Are they giving you a performance increase over the last sets you were using. Any other problems with them? Might give em a try...see if I can up my scores a little

    The 75.90s (and XG75.90s) gave me around a 100 point increase. You just need to contend with the idle temperature problem. I just used it for benching. I usually run the 71.20s.
