    Canon Rebel t2i/550D, It's not about the camera though, you could be able to get the same results with a cheapo point and shoot or a decent cell phone.

    Well it's an Olympus 815UZ. It's not real special by any means but it takes better pics in low light then my P80 and I got a great price at BestBuy of all places. It was only $149 so I figure it's worth a gamble.

    Do you use manual focus or do you set it to auto and let the camera do the work?

    Try using multi-shot, long expusure and low ISO and see if you can get better less grainy macro shots. for example, my quick try on the MVF to demonstrate

    The options available are pretty limited which is why the price was as low as it was. My Nikon P80 has far more options available.

    Nice! I had a Turtle Beach Montego DDL card based on the same CMedia chipset. It was a popular softmod to just use the Xplosion DTS drivers since they were pretty much all around "better".

    I guess I should post some hardware closeups if I'm going to make a post.

    Well if you can point both the advantages and disadvantages of crunching, ofcourse the pro's will be outweighing the cons I presume, then maybe it's something I may do, I see enough of it around on TPU so I figure why not?

    The upsides are contributing to a worthy cause, pride in yourself and your team, sometimes an ego boost and always friendly competition. The downsides are heat and noise (both depending on your cooling but I think that stock cooler should do nicely), and added electricity cost, depending on your situation.

    These guys can tell you a lot more than I can:

    And here's how to make your GPU do all the work:
