Default No 3dm03 nvidia fx benches?

When I do a search and compare to see how the fx5900's are doing in 3dm03 I get no matches found for any fx cards.

Strange.

Because they don't allow application specific optimizations anymore than they would allow cheats.

A very handy & powerful windows tweaker with the ability to overclock pretty much any video card among other neat tricks. (It also can write a custom monitor driver for your monitor based on the plug-n-play info it reads off it...a real plus for some of us cheapskates with old VistaPoints that won't hit 85Hz on the refresh rate without it. )

Google it, it's worth knowing about.

Vistapoint... heh, didn't know anyone else used em... I just got rid of my VistaPoint yesterday... I've had 2 of their old 17"s... they're ok... just ok... And yes, dig, we be cheapskates fer haven em... Whats worse is that now the best monitor @ my house is a yr2000 emachines (KDS) that I got at a yard sale for $5 last week... ....

...heck, i never used powerstrip with teh VistaPoints... i wish i woulda known that... oh well... see, i used it back when i had a gf2mx... didn't like it much... went the "coolbits only" route for what seemed like forever, and i JUST got back into rivatuner...

A reg thing. It just enables the overclocking panel in the detonators control panel....just make sure you're getting either the 9x/me or xp/2k version.
