    I've had it two weeks. I assembled it into a new machine I built, and finished the night before the SuperBowl. In my hurry to get the TV working for the game broadcast, I installed the 180.27 driver...

    Snag a 9800 GTX+ (it has a 55nm GPU) for around $150 after rebates. If you want another $50 in the mix, get a GTX260 (I think they are selling the 55 nm ones now).

    VDPAU is supported, but not in...

    Incredible

    As I've mentioned here before, I have an AGP part that is completely non-functional (locks up my machine). Are you saying now that until a week or two ago, it wasn't functional in Windows either?...

    Still completely dead

    Back in November, 8.43 was hard-locking my machine. Now, 8.44 hard locks the machine at the same spot, the initial X grey weave pattern screen. Have to do an Alt-SysRq-b.

    It is an MSI KT4 Ultra...
