    Triple-Screen Set-ups

    Exactly, Windows 7 / Windows Vista WDDM does not prevent you from running different gpu / gpu family video cards. There are issues with which version of the WDDM the card is using though. Nope, there are thousands of people running SoftTH under Windows 7 / Windows Vista with some podunk card...

    You do actually have a power source. :) Display Port provides a power source through the, well, port. ;) How DisplayPort Supports Video Adapters ? Built-in adapter support ? DisplayPort source provides power for video adapter (1.5W) ? Adapter type identified and controlled by AUX channel...

    Triple-Screen Set-ups

    There's no such thing as a passive DP to VGA adapter. All, all DP to VGA are active. So you have an active adapter. :) http://www.displayport.org/cms/sites/default/files/downloads/DisplayPort_Technical_Overview.pdf http://www.displayport.org/consumer/?q=content/faq

    Triple-Screen Set-ups

    Uh, it's 100% true. SLI is required for their triple screen solution (outside of one card which hacks its way passed that). Why would nVidia's own site lie to you about the Surround triple monitor requirements? What you are talking about is SoftTH which is a whole different ball of wax.

    Der Stig, did you try this? It may be a little late, but if you throw the HDD back in the old system you can sysprep the drive for the swap. http://www.techspot.com/vb/all/windows/t-48387-How-To-Swap-motherboard-without-clean-or-upgrade-installing-Windows.html And the MULTI_PROCESSOR...

    Installed Civ 5 Tuesday night and realized I hadn't upgraded my system..

    Nary a hiccup. I'm gathering you were using a sysprep image for deployment? Oh the debugging I've done with that game. They really did not do a good job of quality control during the dev process.

    I <3 Windows 7. Normally I sysprep and do all this back up, instead I installed all the new components and fired it up. It found all the new hardware from the X38 to X58 chipset change, implemented a new HAL (not that there was much of a change needed) and dropped right to the desktop. 0...

    It's bonus time at work...so yes I do have too much spare cash. hahahaha. But that damn Intel cooler is too damn loud. I've got one of the similar Zalman's on my current system and w/ the 120mm case fans, it's damn quiet and a lot cooler under load than the stock fans. hahah, it wasn't just...

    Does anyone still have 56k on here? [Speed Test Thread]

    Can we just start threads and drop in attachments based on our DL/UL rates? "Full bitrate 1080p pr()n. No < 35Mb allowed." Yeah, I went there.
