Thanks for the replies fellas. I do have the Moome cards in them but they are his older dvi cards, not hdmi. Tubes on both are still in great shape with low hours but g70s can show wear early. The green on one had some flakes come off the phosphor so you can see those spots in your image. It came that way from sony when I ordered it years ago, but still low hours. The other machine had all new tubes in it when it was purchased so those should be mint but I haven't taken the lens off to look.
Does Curt still come around these parts anymore? He might have some input too I suppose.
Mediocrity will always appeal to the masses, while excellence is most often over looked and only appreciated by a select few.
