Nvidia's Nforce 2 chipset not a chipset anymore

I guess when X wants to know what my chipset is I'll just refuse to recognize that question until it asks me something more to nvidia's liking.

The part that got me was the 'forcing' of not using chipset & integrated.

Hrm... weren't they sleeping with Microsoft on the X-Box thing? I'm thinking something has rubbed off.

Well, as long as the product is good I don't care about the marketing. This applies for things that suffer from lack of marketing and things that are simply poorly marketed.

I must admit when I was building the machine I type this message on, I had some pretty graphic things to say about the motherboard that I first tried to build it around.

Not only were they sleeping with MS, but it bit them - I read a while back that the courts have ordered them to keep supplying gpus for the xbox even though they don't want to..

They probably entered into a binding contract with MS. Deal with the Devil, and he will collect in the end ;)
