Wow talk about coming back guns blazing.

Thats some nice gear you got there, nothing wrong with a bit of fresh air during the summer.

Hopefully those field critters have yielded some nice data for you to ponder over this winter with your new systems.

I've jumped into the fall with a vengeance- I just picked up a pair of 260 GTX 216s (they'll end up separated in two of my rigs) i got one for my main rig along with the EVGA 280 hydro copper water cooling block and a second for my HTPC to send high def video to my new Panasonic Viera 42" 1080p plasma (yes, I AM bragging).

I have tried the s/pdif internal hookup to loop the audio into the HDMI output of the video card, but the sound was really messed up so I ended up just running a separate COAX- If you really want to send sound through the saem cable, go ATI

I will post some pics of my setup during the weekend next week once things calm down for the fall/winter- and of course I will definitely see what kind of benchmarks I can run with the two cards set up on my NVidia mobo upstairs- I can't wait.
