    Martz, where did you get that ATI Saphire card? I'm looking for something to replace my TI4600.

        Uninstall any Nvidia/Detonator/FX/whatever stuff via Add/Remove, delete the application folders and do a sweep of the registry with RegCleaner or another registry cleaning application.

        By the way, ATI has a trade up program where you can get the card discounted by turning in your current nVidia card that you might want to consider, being that my current graphics card is the first that I have used which wasn't intergraded, I couldn't tell you whether or not it is a good idea.

        There are no games that I know of that require an nVidia card unless you count nVidia's demos (the dawn demo is sweet on my ATI card, lol).

          I think this should be considered a real issue from now on. Almost everyone with Radeon cards have problems with PJ64. Almost everyone with Radeons have problems with Blender too, and i can imagine, a large number of apps. It's a driver problem, and changing bitdepth isnt gonna help. This is gonna remain a problem 'till eiter the PJ64 team makes a hack, or until ATI makes one.. (that seems to be their way of fixing problems in the drivers... making a little hack for every app that acts up.. and I don't think Blender or PJ64 is high priority..):
          This emulator is my favorite program, and there are a large number similar threads. This makes things a bit more difficult...

          Edit: I checked on my second favorite program, Doomday's site. I get complaints of a similar nature.

            Using that in conjunction with ROM files from the internet is illegal.

              I own real copies of the games I play, I just think it looks WAYYY better on the emulator.

                The only time roms are illegal is if you do not own the game

                  Downloading it is illegal even if you own it (probably why running/downloading/having a Windows Corporate or cracked version from Kazaa is still illegal even if you own Windows XP), the only legal ROMs are the ones you extract yourself.

                    No, ive done my reasearch in this area, if you own a copy of the game it is legal to have one backup of it, since you legaly own the game you can leagaly own the rom.

                      I agree, you can legally own the ROM but how you get the ROM can change the legality.

                          Yea, let's get back to the topic.

                          My friend says he has the emulator too and recieved no problems. He owns the EXACT card I will be getting, so I'm not worried about this anymore.

                          I'm going to call Dell and ask if my computer will be able to support the card. Most likely it can, because a guy on the internet with my exact computer got my exact card and had no problems. It seems like an unnessisary step, but I need to be cautious.

                          We'll be purchasing the card on friday. On Saturday, my friend will come and install it for me. I will not be allowed to turn the quality up on my programs until my birthday the next day.
