Cards with composite video output?
A system update is well overdue, I currently have a Radeon 9500 Pro and Athlon 2200+, so the bulk of the system will need replacing. I expect the new motherboard will be a Asus P5QL Pro or similar. I don't really play games much these days, so am just looking for a video card with reasonable performance at a r... 28 Oct 2009 19:35
System boot niggle

Did Nvidia buy up all the stock to glean a clue? Did Fonzi realy jump that shark? Enquireing minds... ... 6 Nov 2009 04:50

Nvidia in a heap of trouble. Not good for competition!
I don't like the sound of this, but it is all over the net today. Nvidia kills the GTX285, GTX275, GTX260, and abandons the mid and high end market. "Due to a massive series of engineering failures, nearly all of the company's product line is financially under water, and mismanagement seems to be killing the c... 15 Oct 2009 01:45
