but you seems to have good luck with ATI. I wasn't fine with NVidia for
my old hardware, so I was happy, when I saw a mobo for less money with
an integrated ATI. Learning by trial and error is the only way for
idiots like me.
The ATI on my mobo even isn't fine with windows. I had a long phone call
with a friend who is an expert with hardware. I don't have any Windows,
but he assembled a multimedia PC, HDMI, Blue-ray etc. with the same mobo
for Windows. The mobo is an ASUS M2A-VM HDMI. "Normal" use, 3D etc. is
fine, but the whole video stuff is a disaster.
He told me that he also will buy a NVidia, because ATI shouldn't be
good. NVidia enables a windows button, so that windows can change with
one click from one monitor to the other and features like this. Maybe
just for Windows and not for Linux, but ATI seems to be less functional
than ATI for Windows, so it's easy to imagine how it will be for Linux.
Since I tried to install the ATI driver my 64 Studio is broken. NVidia
for my old hardware was only a problem when I used more than one kernel.
It's possible to use 3D support with more than one kernel, but this
won't work with all combinations of kernels for one Linux. Some features
NVidia is able to do, won't work with Linux, but most is fine for. So I
will buy a NVidia for my new hardware. I hope the ATI can be disabled.
At this phone call I get some information about IRQs, PCI, PCIe and
hints on how to get composite video from S-Video and HDMI video without
sound from DVI-I. There are troubles because of the IRQs I didn't know.
Sometimes 6 hardware devices can use one IRQ, while two IRQs are still
unused etc., ATI sometimes need a special IRQ.
Intel should be to slow for some applications. The best should be NVidia.
I won't reply to all the other mails, so to Gustin, thank you for
affirming about the SATA and IDE use, but I don't agree concerning to
Windows as a DAW. I tested my old hardware with Windows and it fit to my
needs. Because I don't wish to have anything from Microsoft, I bought
new hardware, because my old hardware wasn't able to fit my needs when
Grr, the fan of my new power supply sounds like a monitor in use with a
to high vertical refresh rate or like a light bulb that isn't fine any
more. There isn't any other noise and this noise only can be heard if
all windows are closed, but than it sucks.
