After I installed my new MSI 6600GT for AGP, my system became ustable. I Updated the BIOS, install latest drivers for everything, but sometimes it runs into weird problems like the system won't shut down, or freese on some games. I was thinking of clearing CMOS and reformatting. Anyone have any sugestions?
P.S.: by the way, the post i made saying nvidia sux, well, i was h*!! of pissed cuz my card won't work in my new system, and i spent the whole day unpluging my computer, opening up, switching vid cards.. with no luck , so i ran into doom. Personally I like both ATI and nVidia, now i have an nvidia and I just had an ATI, both ran smooth and I don't see why a person would like the other brand better. I just built 2 athlon 64's for some friends, and they both have ATI cards, my old 9600SE and a 9600XT, both running smooth. Bottom line is, if you want a card under 100bucks you need an ATI, like 9600 because you won't find anything "band for the buck" nvidia cards for under $100, and if you want a quality card in the $200 and up range, you will have better luck with nVidia because they make good cards in the middle-high class range.
hope it helped.
