Fair de well my trusty steed

Just finished packing up my AIW 9800SE to send off to it's new owner, I must say it fealt an aweful lot like moving house, but the good kind of move, like when you have loud neighbours and you finally move to the country side with an acre or two for the kids to run around in and the nearest soul over a mile away and... I'm babbling.
any way who woulda thought you could get £110 for an AIW 9800SE 2nd hand certainly not me thats for sure, I was chuffed when it reached it's £75 reserve then a day later I thought I'd clicked the wrong link.
So I'm GPUless until tomorrow, unless you count my 9100 IGP.

sigh
Fare de well old boy, fair de well.

WOW, I forgot about Microdirect! At that price it has to be one of the best Bang For Buck cards about.

I read a few days ago that you can use command lines with rivatuner to enable the pipelines. He commented that it was unstable using the GUI but command line operation made it work flawlessly on a 6800.
I dont know why one would be better than the other

I havent been able to find the link for you I'm afraid, but maybe theres mileage in it.
