What drivers are you using for your 4750? I've been trying to upgrade mine to the latest Catalysts or Omegas and I get weird vertical lines on the screen.
Besides this issue, I love my 4750.
I am rendering 3d animation on my 4750, as I type this. It is really fast with Lightwave and Digital Fusion.
Lightwave 64-bit is slated for release soon and then (if win64 is available) it will scream.
I don't find heat to be that much of an issue. I've got it in my lap right now and the processor is at 29 degrees celcius. Playing Half-Life 2 with everything on high quality (no AA) it stays at 50 degrees or so.
I'm sure within a few...
I've had mine a couple of weeks and really dig it. It's on my lap right now running at a cool 28-29 degrees.
I agree with wbeck. HL2 runs great in widescreen mode. Played it for four hours straight Saturday night.
Make sure you...
RxLS1, I'm telling you my balls don't get hot when I use this machine at all. The processor fan actually seems to put out cool air. Now, 2 degrees would be hard to tell, but yeah, that Emachines 6809 sure heated the testicles up.
I just received my 4750 last week. Love it so far. The heat amount is actually a lot less (at least on my crotch area) than my Emachines unit with an AMD64 Mobile. It is a little noisy, but only when really pushing the CPU...
