Default Techie... DONE Kinda

Well, I am posting from my new machine... It is VERY fast. Specs later.. and pics.

The one problem? I can only get one vid card to work... remember, I am only trying to get 4 screens, not trying to SLI the cards.

So I am going to pull the card the computer recognizes out tomorrow and start with the other card... the power house card.

Let's see what that does.

Yeah, I did that. I am going to pull out the Sparkle card and try and boot with ONLY the 280-- after clearing out the drivers and and uninstalling the card. I hope that'll do it. I REALLY don't wana RMA the thing.

I was updating the bios. Didn't recognize the OS aftwards

Used the restore point after about an hour of dealing with it. Luckily, it is working again. Now on to fixing the vid card. Arghhh

I'd wait on a bios update until you have it running for a week or two, no need to update the bios right away, make sure she's stable first

Alright... Up and running... all four screens running good... That's right.. FOUR.

Also figured out what the crash was... Computer was trying to boot off a external HD.

Pics to come.

Nice job, Preacher! My son can build computers from scratch. This time around, he just bought one and will beef it up as he goes along.

I bet it feels good to have done it all yourself!
