    I think the "computers" that landed Apollo 11 on the moon had about 64kbs of storage capacity in them. That's the size of small jpg now!

    But the computer overloaded and gave out a warning and it was landed by hand controls anyway.

    I did a little upgrading today on my 2 year old computer hooked up to my tv set with one of those new NVidia 8800 series cards, specifically the 8800 GTS. I wanted to go with the GTX version for the total overkill effect...but my power supply was too small for it at 460 watts, so I got the declocked and some processing ability disabled GTS model to be able to feed it alright with the PS I have in that box.

    P4 550 3.4, 2 GB, 8800 GTS

    3d05 8311
    3d06 5608

    I'm pretty much CPU limited at this point, maybe I'll get a Core 2 Duo CPU machine eventually, but for what I use this machine for now it will do well.

    Heck, I was bored today so I reflashed my laptop GPU to 440/1250 from 430/1200 after changing that gpu/heatsink interface tape with some Arctic Silver paste (adds 150 horsepower, LOL). Prime95 and ATITool running show ok with temps a-ok still.

    3dMark05-7262
    3dMark06-3703

    I'd say a decent improvement from my previous numbers:

    3dMark05-7106
    3dMark06-3634

    Come on guys, jump on in to this 'who's got a bigger dick?' competition!

    Yeah, but I'm allergic to fruits. What sort of GPU does that thing have?
