New Graphics Card!
Thursday, May 04, 2006
Just yesterday, I received the graphics card I ordered from Newegg. It is a middle-range PNY GeForce 6200 w/ 128MB RAM (see it here). As soon as the box was unpacked, I set off to install the card. Installation was easy except for the fact that some screws were missing. I solved this by just taking some screws elsewhere out of the system, and replacing those with screws I found at home. Then, I installed Windows *Cringe*. Yeah, as soon as SuSE 10.1 come out, I am loading that. Windows installations go fairly quick, and the card driver/ DirectX 9.0 did too. So now I have a working Windows system with a fairly nice graphics card (which is kind of loud). I have yet to actually test the thing though. I am going to install some games/ demos and see how they run. Hopefully this will be an improvement over integrated motherboard graphics.
