    Debating between two GTX 580's

    Yeah, he seems to write very thurough reviews. I checked out the one he did for the Palit Sonic edition and that was something he did bring up there. Not sure if he forgot or that it just wasn't an issue. I'll assume the latter based on how extensive his testing is. The more of these cards I...

    Debating between two GTX 580's

    Wow, the forum ate my post. Oh well. I wanted to say thanks for the links, though I'd checked that out already. The Asus seems quieter, but what I still am not sure of is coil whine under load. Anyone have any nsight on that aspect of either or those two cards?

    Debating between two GTX 580's

    In the next few weeks, I'll be buying a GTX 580 to get a bit more modern gaming power under the hood. I'm trying to decide between the MSI GTX 580 Twin Frozr II or the Asus GTX 580 Direct CU Triple slot cards. I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with these cards? Which one is...

    Odd Aspect Ratio bug?

    I've noticed this for a while now, but never really thought much of it. Eventually though it's gotten to bug me enough that I'd bring it up here and see if anyone else has come across this. If I set my resolution to its native 1920x1200 everything is fine and dandy. If I set it to a non...

    Steam Weekend Deal: Codemasters Racing Pack

    Definitely going to get in on this one. I already have Dirt 2, but I can give the extra one away easily enough. Grid for less than 4$ is almost criminally cheap. :)

    Ubisofts DRM officially a Failure?

    It goes a bit deeper than that for me. It's the entire sentiment around this DRM scheme that completely turns me off. What Ubisoft is saying is that every one of their customers is a potential thief and that they need to constantly look over their shoulders to make sure that they are not...

    i7 860 vs Phenom II X6 1090T?

    My current board is an Asus M3A78 Pro. No X6 support on that. It's also the one that I think is causing most of my video problems. So I have no choice but to get another board, and I can say it won't be an Asus. If I could find the spot o enter my system details I'd do that. (Note...

    i7 860 vs Phenom II X6 1090T?

    Heh, well it isn't that far away really. I was thinking of ordering online, most of the Microbytes I've visited didn't have any of the parts I wanted in stock. Seems like the two chips have very different strengths.

    I'm in Lachute, Quebec.

    i7 860 vs Phenom II X6 1090T?

    I'm mostly going to be using it for gaming and video encoding/editing. Wanting to spend about 550 for the mobo and chip. Bought some Corsair XMS3 1600 Mhz ram already so I should be alright there. On thing I should have mentioned is I'd like to stay away from Asus. I don't care for their...

    i7 860 vs Phenom II X6 1090T?

    So this is the choice I need to make. I'm a little bit annoyed with this 780G board right now. It's acting kind of funky... So I'm trying to decide between the new Phenom II X6 1090T on an 890GX or FX board or an i7 860 on a P55 chipset. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Cat 10.4: Revenge of the enormous cursor

    Well, just reverted back to 10.3b Preview. No more gigantapointer. So yeah, ATI may want to look into that.

    Cat 10.4: Revenge of the enormous cursor

    Imagine your mouse pointer on screen, now imagine it 4x bigger. It's particularly annoying in my case because I already use larger cursors, so I end up with a mouse pointer that's even more enormous.

    Cat 10.4: Revenge of the enormous cursor

    That's good to know. It also seems like a bit of a design fault to me.

    Cat 10.4: Revenge of the enormous cursor

    Just tried this and no dice. Still get the giant cursor on either DVI port. I don't get this. Worse is I can't go back to the 10.3b. When I uninstall 10.4 and reboot I immediately end up in restore mode and it reverts back to the 10.4s. I wonder if the 780G chpset is just funky in...

    Cat 10.4: Revenge of the enormous cursor

    I've got a Cypress card (HD 5870) and have the giant mouse cursor, as I said in the OP. I notice that on 10.4 it gets gigantic only a couple of minutes after the PC starts. Harmless, but annoying...

    Cat 10.4: Revenge of the enormous cursor

    Yeah, this is a 5k series issue. Doesn't seem to matter what BIOS is on it either.

    Cat 10.4: Revenge of the enormous cursor

    So apparantly this seems to be a bug that ATI can't seem to keep fixed. Worked fine in the 10.3 preview drivers for me, but now on WHQL 10.4 it has returned. Even says in the release notes that this is fixed. Anyone else with a 5870 seeing this as well?

    Video playback/encoding hangups ...

    Update: I had the memory set to Unganged in the BIOS. Went ahead and set it to Ganged and tried again. As soon as I added the clips to live movie maker with default 157/300 clocks the driver locked up. Activated a CCC profile with 400/600 clocks and tried again. Added all the clips, but live...

    Video playback/encoding hangups ...

    I will give that a look and report back. If I remember right I had set it to Ganged to begin with, but I'll double check in a bit.

    Video playback/encoding hangups ...

    ... bad driver or bad card? Well, I have been tryin to sort this problem out for months now, since I got the card in fact. I finally decided I needed to ask some folks about it, and this place has always been a good source of info for me, so I finally registered. I have a Gigabyte HD 5870...
