My main rig is still down and I might just upgrade the cpu, memory and board. I am getting a 680gtx as well but one thing at a time. its at a shop and if the boards dead im gonna pull the trigger on that and use my old gpu for now. id rather upgrade the gpu but I need a rig up and running.
I have a set of requirements for my "htpc", I use htpc loosely as we all have different goals and definitions and I'm not sure I can do this using Linux. At least not without learning more about configuration files than I care to.
Fanless, I know I can get almost silent with fans...
Received my 5010 from Projector People last night.
I had a 8350 and the 5010 beats it hands down in black levels & sharpness. No contest.
*I still have the 8350 so I was able to do an A/B comparison. The 8350 does output a great picture for its price range.
