Re: Nvidia nForce2 MCP and DRM Media
Won't be supported? This is the most popular northbridge chipset. A7N8X huh,
well guess what? I have two of those as well. It is just as good of a gaming
board as any other agp 8x board. THIS IS NOW THE REASON I WILL NOT BE
UPGRADING TO VISTA. The best thing Microsoft can do at any point (not in a
busniess sense) is go opensource.

Re: Nvidia nForce2 MCP and DRM Media
And what does it have to do with MS? It was nvidia that dropped support for
nforce2 and apparently now nforce3, so shouldn't the rant be "not buy nvidia
anymore"? My old MSI nforce2 board works perfectly fine with vista, support
or no support from nvidia.

Right you are!
My old A7N8X runs great with Vista, so no need for NVIDIA "support".
NVIDIA is shafting 5000-series video card users as it stands now. Although
most 5000 cards support Aero just fine (my FX5500 included), the Vista
drivers NVIDIA has for download *do not support* anything lower than the
6000-series. Talk about forces obsolescence!
Luckily, Vista Ultimate comes with drivers that make the FX5500 work, so I'm
good for now.
I'm thinking of switching to ATI next time around, just because of the
driver issue. Guess I'll have to go get educated on the ATI chipsets that
are comparable to the NVIDIA 7300 GT or 7600 GS.
