    6870 or 6950 at 1920x1200: Worth $100 more?

    Just got this thing install yesterday. It worked fine for two boots, but now I can't get a signal on either DVI output ... the computer does boot, though. Tried reseating it and the PCI-E power connectors multiple times, using a different DVI cable, and resetting CMOS. I put my 9600 GT back in...

    6870 or 6950 at 1920x1200: Worth $100 more?

    I'll be picking up a 2GB 6950 later today since I upgrade rather infrequently (currently using a Q6600/9600 GT) and I'm not interested in going Crossfire due to the additional heat and noise. Thanks everyone!

    6870 or 6950 at 1920x1200: Worth $100 more?

    Hey all, I'm looking to get a new video card to go along with my new Dell U2412M and eventually a Core i5 2500k. I've got it narrowed down to the XFX 6870 stock dual fan (possibly Black Edition, same price) and the XFX 6950 2GB stock dual fan. In Canada, the after tax, after rebate price gap...

    Forte or Xonar Essence STX for 2.1 Speakers?

    Thanks guys; picked up the Xonar Essence ST earlier today. I'm having trouble getting the digital out to work, though: I get no sound, but it shows volume activity on the sound menu. I'm using a coaxial cable and I've set the S/PDIF pass-through as the default playback device. Am I missing...

    Forte or Xonar Essence STX for 2.1 Speakers?

    Hey all, Here's another "Which sound card should I get?" thread to bore you with. :) I'm currently listening to my Edifier S330D 2.1 speakers (http://www.edifier.ca/english/speakers/s330d/s330d.htm) through my Audigy 1 (with Daniel K's drivers) on Windows 7 Profession x64. Some driver...

    Game Card and WoW?

    No idea, guess it was just the usual Walmart slipup. Apparently, Amazon also shipped some early. How I wish I could admire the Collectors Edition contents before the servers go up :D.
