My video card was just replaced with a GeForce3 Ti200. What might I have to do
to get the best performance out of it? (Hacks, options, tweaks, etc.) Thanks

Hello Dave!

There are quite a few tweaks you can do for Inventor. First I would suggest
you convert your Geforce into a Quadro using Soft Quadro, to gain a little
performance and alot of professional features:

A good place to start: http://www.guru3d.com/rivatuner/softquadro/

I was wondering...if I hack this to a Quadro, will I still be able to play my
games? Specificly, Age of Mythology?

No it should not affect your games, softquadro is a driver hack so if you
do have problems (you should not) you just reinstall the Nvidia drivers and
its back to normal.

Sure Dave,

The Soft Quadro drivers unlock extra instructions and paths in the NV core.
Because of this, you may notice 5-20% decrease in performance.

Not in games though, because no opengl games use these instuctions only CAD
programs. I have never had a FPS drop in any off my games.

Ooops! Your right Paul. The decrease in performance i was seeing was from
moving from more efficient detonator 4 drivers to the slower "Certified"
drivers.

Cheers,

Ashley
