RivaTuner, a 7800GTX, and no fan control

Sorry if this topic has already been posted a plethora of times over the last couple years. All of the posts I have found are dated back in 2004 or 2005 and I wanted some fresh info on this.

Wow, does it seem as if we need to use the 4gb maximum capacity of our motherboards just to run a new OS!

Yup, no vista. Just a look-a-like. The beta of Vista just took too much of my 1gb of memory. Not putting it back on until I get 2gb.

It is a Dell Monitor and for that specific one (30") they say it has to be a card that supports 2560x1600 and the 7800 GTX does not support that. The 7900 and 7600 do but for some reason not the...

WQXGA and 7800 GTX

The native resolution of a 30" monitor I want is 2560x1600 (WQXGA). I'm seeing that the new gen of nVidia supports this, even the 7600's. However, my BFG 7800 GTX OC sports a max res of 2048x1536. ...

I guess it's the same with a lot of other hardware, everyone will have a different experience. Granted, the antenna that comes with it sucks, but I still got about 10 HD channels with it. I ended...

Would having the extra 4 pins do anything for the current going to the RAM too?

I won't be using it for gaming like I use my PC for, but I want it available because it's always nice to game on a big screen, so back to what I asked before, is a 7600 GT sufficient?

That makes sense to me. I've heard of people with their Venice cores being able to OC a lot higher than I can. My temps are really good so I know it's not overheating, and I have my voltage almost...

The 7800 GT and the GTX use the same G70 GPU right? It's odd how different our temps are. My 7800 GTX idles at 40-45 degrees C and under full load only gets up to about 55 degrees C.

Your first step is to check the temps in BIOS before you get into windows to see if anything there is off. Also, leave it there for 20 minutes or so and see if the temp rises. Report back what your...

7800 GTX and BIOS

Ever since I installed my 7800 GTX a few months ago I have never been able to see the BIOS and Windows Start-up screens. I haven't overclocked it yet so there's no way there is any damage from that....

I am OC'd from 2.0 to 2.4 without those extra 4 pins. So is that really true that I can get a better overclock with those 4 pins in?

Not to start an argument, but these are two totally different responses. I don't doubt that your (Rocky) computer runs fine without it, so does mine actually. But 75 Watts could...

I've got a MSI K8N Neo4-F mobo with a 24-pin connector. My Ultra X-connet has a 20-pin connector. Right now I'm running a 20-pin connector from the PSU to the lower 20 pins on my mobo, leaving the...
