    For being a TEST FIT everything looks awesome! Can't wait to see it with everything in. I wish I could afford the $100/Case for some 4U Rackmounts... Damn those "Companies" buying these cases for their "Servers" with their "Millions" of "Dollars" to "Waste" bastards, all of them

    Cable cleanup, mission successful. (pics=56k fear)

    Why? Fixing a problem is no longer praise worthy? It makes sense when you think about it. When you see someone kick a 5 year Heroin addiction do you say "Shouldn't have started in the first place!"? :)

    Will the center channel speaker reach up to that window sill above your monitor? Other than that, Nice job! I like it!

    > 137Gig hdd Installs..

    But I think if you would have made an 80 Gig partition, you would have been able to then make another 80 gig partition (give or take, depending on the difference between Gb and GB)

    hooking xbox to computer?

    Wait, so you're saying that my AIW 9700 Pro's big Purple thing that plugs into S-Vid In is the only way I can use my XBox on my computer? Getting an XBox wiring package that used S-Video wouldn't work?

    > 137Gig hdd Installs..

    Ah, so close! I haven't had the oppurtunity to do what I was suggesting either. But as far as I know, a 160GB drive would show up as 137GB until you did the required updates. I also suppose doing a 30GB partition would then free up the other 130GB, which you could partition through windows...

    > 137Gig hdd Installs..

    Please, please, PLEASE do not format the entire hard drive into one partition. I STRONGLY reccomend making a 10-20GB Partition to install Windows and other system files on. This way if your Window install gets corrupted, and you have to reformat, you can just format the small partition and lose...

    Hardware I DONT like ! and hardware I love ! yes there are plenty of pics

    Now now children, lets not start a flame war, or even worse, a knife fight! I kid, I kid, I'm sure you're very responsible with your knives. And personally, if you have some hardware that doesnt work, by all means do what you wish with it. But I would have at least attempted an RMA :)

    hooking xbox to computer?

    You will probably need to get an S-Video to RCA plug (I think that's the name) adapter. Then use some sort of TV software to make your computer think you're just watching tv wthrough S-Video in. I'm pretty sure this way won't have sound, however.

    [H]elp me setup tri-monitors

    My old Ti4200 does. That's my only problem with the 9700Pro, doesn't have VGA and DVI out. But i'll gladly sacrifice the VGA out for the TV Tuner :)

    [H]elp me setup tri-monitors

    Thanks for all the help guys, although I think a few of you were confused one 2 points: 1) My 9700Pro only has 1 output (dvi) [well, untrue technically, I think it has S-Video out, but I use that for getting sounds with TV] 2) MANY PCI cards come with a VGA and DVI output. Not sure why some...

    Currently I have an ATI Radeon 9700 Pro with a Samsung SyncMaster 955DF Monitor. I also have about 5 extra 17" Monitors. This leads me to only one conclusion... MOAR MONITORS! So I want to setup 3 monitors. One for movies and games (the 955DF) and the other 2 for internet and... well I'll...

    Rackmount DJ System? Advice

    Head down to Barnes & Nobles, Borders, or any other bookstore and go to the mgazine section. Every single PC MAgazine, PC World, and Linux Journal is bombarded with server style advertisements. If you really want, I can look a few up for you.

    switch and uplink

    You might need to use a Crossover cable between the switch and the router. I didn't have to, but I have a big ass 24 port switch, so i'm assuming it's auto-switching :)
