Re: Quake 3 FPS

Time spent in BIOS is the main limit on my boot speed at home. But then, I'm not on Windows at home. Dos/Win3.1 boot time on a current i7 is rather hilarious if you can be bothered to set it up.

I have a SAS card and tape drive in that same machine, which spends most of the time unplugged unless it's actually needed to do a backup... SAS BIOS takes a freaking age. If anyone can recommend a controller that doesn't take 3 mins to spin up it would be very helpful!
