    NVidia XP Drivers on Media Center

    Is it possible to use the Nvidia XP Video drivers on Media Center? I'm not using any of the TV input functions of MCE, basically just playback of video, etc. I'd like the latest drivers though because of performance enhancements with certain games.

    6200 Review by HardOCP

    I must say, excellent job on the review. But what I really liked was the last page, and how HardOCP showed what your money can get you in relation to direct in game features. ie "For 50 dollars more you can go from 800x600 to 1024x768 and from low to medium quality" very well done. This is...

    "Silence" the Fan

    Ok, I have an SLK-800 with a Panaflo on top. I recently picked up some of those fan silencers (the rubber wraps that go around the fan). I decided to put on the bottom of the fan where it touches the heatsink. It did quiet it down somewhat. Anybody think this isn't safe? I wonder if the...

    9800 Pro impressions

    Well, i made the switch to give ATI a chance, went from a Ti4200 to a 9800 Pro. Here's some impressions: 2D quality was better on the Nvidia, I can see lines in colors on my wallpaper now that wasn't apparant with the nvidia card. Also, color is very washed out now on my second monitor...

    How quiet is the 9800 XT?

    I'm torn over getting a regular 9800 Pro or an XT. I'm leaning towards the 9800 Pro (either the Tyan or the Sapphire that's 230 at newegg), but I'm not against spending for the XT. Question is, which is quieter, 9800 Pro or the XT?
