View Full Version : Ideal settings/driver for BFG 5700 Ultra?

11-26-04, 08:41 AM
As I'm the proud owner of a "legacy" BFG 128MB 5700 Ultra, I'm wondering if all the new 60.xx & 65.xx series drivers really add anything new to my GPU...
In y'alls opinions, should I stick with 56.72, or would I be better served with 61.76 or 66.93 or 67.20?

It's installed in a 3.2 GHz + 2GB Ram + SATA system, what should I set the BIOS's AGP aperture size at?

The card is mostly used for everyday use + several hours a day of 2D apps (applying effects to 800MB Photoshop files) + the occasional game of Novalogic's Typhoon Rising & Call of Duty, so cool temperatures & utter stability are my main requirements.

Thanks, WHQL + official drivers are important to me due to work constraints.

I thought the newer drivers really added a lot of performance to the FX line...maybe I'm mistaken though.

The 6x.xx drivers provide excellent Doom 3 performance and are bound to have bug fixes etc, so I'd say its a must for everyone. Performance shouldn't be lower than the 56.72s and I'd go with the 66.93s.
