Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Update on the Sony 32" from above, it seems to work, all inputs. It's a 1080p, not bad for a 32", most that size were 720.

Very nice!! That G200 is shredder food for 3D. 2D isn't bad, but anything 3D, forget it. If you want 3D, find a voodoo2 (or pair for SLI), they will work well with that card....and it'll be...

Just a little footnote....I found a pair of X5470's (3.33GHz 1333FSB) quadcore Xeons on the CPU bin....I honestly don't remember where they came from, but they're the fastest 5400-series Xeon @...

Re: windows 7

Never seen it....even on client machines.

Anyone voluntarily 'uses' Edge? It's not installed on any of my 7 or S2K12 systems. Funny, for as much good software M$ has written they have never had...

Re: Surveillance receiver capacitor?

That's not a cap, its a crystal. That gunk appears to be glue....or something spilled. Have you tried cleaning that crud off?
