|Hi, I am back with actually nothing new to say about the swap between GTS with GTX . GoHack, are you actually going to get better CPU and if/when you do so could you, please, post your 3D Mark 06 scores with the upgraded CPU? That would be awesome and if you could, anybody, find out about GPU swaps that would be just terrific ...
For the price difference, is the GTX really worth it over the GTS, performance wise?
I plan to upgrade to the T9300 as soon as Newegg starts carrying them. I've been checking their site every day. It's surprising they don't have them yet.
I also finally got Windows XP Pro loaded. I borrowed an external floppy drive and used that to load the Intel SATA RAID driver, which was needed to load XP.
I've found, and have loaded, the Chipset, of course the RAID/SATA, the WiFi Card, the Network Card, the eSATA, and the Nvidia Video XP drivers, using a USB Memory Stick. So the laptop is functional. The touchpad and webcam work, but I need to find the XP drivers for them, as well as for the sound and modem. I don't ever use the modem, but it would be nice to have it installed anyway.
If someone could help me find the very latest XP Drvers for the Touchpad, WebCam, sound, and modem, I would appreciate it. I believe that's all I need, I'm not at home on that laptop right now.
I'll do the same benchmarks that I did on Vista on XP in the next few days. Xp certainly uses a lot less HD space.
