Doom 3 and a new Motherboard
|To be able to play this I had to upgrade my machine a little.
Specifically I swapped the old motherboard for a dual channel board
with 1 GB of memory. That allowed my Athlon 2400 to run at full
speed instead of the crippling 1800 (Quantispeed) speed of the old
board. The speed up is incredible. Much more than I expected. Urban
Terror's "Rommel Map" now plays silkily smooth, well most of the
time :) A good
motherboard does pay off.
I also bought a nice case with appropriate cooling. My PC has now more fans than my G5 and runs quieter too.
Though it looks nice for a PC, it sure doesn't look better than my Apple :)
