    Nice system but can't view the playback video on it without turning on closed-captions. :lol:
    (otherwise get constant flashes and extremely jittery video)

    Edit - fixed the video problems with new drivers. You'd think that a new machine would have more current stuff.

    jordanlowe,

    Been a member for 16 months and only 2 posts, both of which are in this forum. I'm just going out on a limb here... DirecTV employee? ;)

    No... sorry. I'm an active tester, just not an active poster. I just don't generally post in public forums, this one is nice and private!

    After a nightmare :( for about a month of trying to get my processor so I could finish building my new desktop I finally received :joy: it yesterday and installed it. For the 4 hours of testing last night it has been rock solid :) . Hopefully it stays that way since this was the first time I built a PC.
