    Hopefully when they create such a program, and you know they will, they will at least be kind/smart enough to not name it Skynet just for safety's sake!!!!

    I was laughing it up last week when I watched the first Tron, I remember the GFX Being sooooo cool back then, and now they look worse than some generic atari or something :)

    This weeks Warehouse 13 looks very cool! I can't wait, and Fringe may be on this week too If I remember right, hope so! If not next week for sure though as I set the recorder already, just don't recall if it was this week or not

    AHh Fringe, Thanks fo reminding me. I have half a season stock piled to watch that I just remembered about.

    I have some bad news. I was just checking some comments on eztv and found the news that Defying Gravity may be canceled. I did a goodle and found a site with a bit of a write up. Its not 100% official but it looks like it will be :-( that is so crap. Each episode was getting better and better. If they dont tell me what was in POD 4 I will be so pissed.

    AHAHA your right, they are worse then an Atari and all that. But 1982 that was a bloody long time ago. 2 Years before I was around

    Better catch up, new episodes will be out before you do if not.

    Wonder where we got off topic here anyway!

    Well at least we know you have one usable machine anyway, your replying, downloading shows, and watching them so at least something is partially working anyway

    Do you think it could be because of our Win 7 7232 build? They've been known to screw up builds before. The second build I used after 7000 knocked 600 points off my Vantage GPU result, so it may be effecting you.

    I do find that initially, after installing a new Catalyst version I have to restart the PC or I get bad screen corruption and Vantage crashes out, with CrossFireX enabled. After the restart, everything's fine.

    I really couldnt say 100% if its got anything to do with the Software layer or not. Im going to lean to the "no" side because its the same build im running my E8500 and doesnt matter what I do to it, it doesnt hard lock. This weekend if I can manage to have some time to myself I will experement. I dont think (cant remember) if I put my XMS2 800Mhz ram in with the Q9550 and tried for 400mhz FSB. I should also really try the Q in the P45 board. Maybe half the reason why I havent done it is that I have a feeling in the back of my head that it is just this chip and it just like to run stock ?? who knows. Its ok. It will be ok untill I get to a point were the Q doesnt not provide enough power for me to do the things I need it to do ( the Pentium D had reached that point a long time ago).

    Cant Wait for:
    Heroes
    Prision Break
    and Californication ?? to come back on.

    Is califonication even coming back.

    I found that it was not and would not let me re-enable Crossfire untill I restarted with the new 9.8 CCC

    Setup a dual OS Boot and do a clean install, then you can easily test if it is software side or not.

    Californication I think it coming back, at least last I heard

    And hey, your P45 board is screaming for you to overclock your Quad in it! Give it a chance, I bet it will be much easier in that board, especially since you know the P45 BIOS a bit now
