    isn't all that huge
    I don't know ...
    Code:
    du -hs NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-455.38
    648M    NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-455.38
    I remember Linux distros took less space after being fully installed. I remember Windows 95 which occupied less than 100MB of disk space and don't get me started on their Windows driver which is ... 611MB compressed.

          Yes well as with so much on the computer, people keep piling stuff on year after year. It gets to be a lot lol.

          We have OS desktop environments built on top of terminals still today. Tons of extra stuff just keeps piling on so its nothing special.

            Heh, my first PC had a 20 /MB/ HDD and 5.25" floppies, and was a huge improvement over my previous computer which used cassette tape.

              I remember when a game could fit in 20KB decades ago.

                Is it PRIME REVERSE he's talking about?

                Doesn't this support come with the 450?
