  1. Before I got my new system with HD2900XT, I had (still have it) my 850XT hooked up with a Westinghouse 37" and a Dell 27", with no problem. Actually, with the Dell, I had it connected once with VHS and then with DVI, using the small adapter that came with it.Abe

  4. Been using a Wistinghouse monitor.....37".....1920x1080 HD for over 4 months now.....................BEAUTIFUL.Abe
  5. Noel, just do a search and download that TWEAK file I mentioned to you. I bet it will work...Like I said that program helped me when nothing else did. It is WORTH a TRY!!Abe
  6. Noel,A couple of things to mention and a POSSIBLE solurion.I want to mention, just for the #### of it, that I have been using SCSI for a long time.....ever since the ATARI days....I am very new with SATA.......and like I said had NO trouble with it.Now the possible solution....On a few occasions I used a utility called TWEAK UI for WINDOWS v. 2.10. Runn it, under my computer/Drives:it shows the ALPHABET A-Z......possibly the boxes are NOT checked off. So check off a few like C,D,E..and see if that works. It did with me at least a few times where the drive letter....like you.....did not appear. And that worked.........Let me know.If that does not work......EXCHANGE your drive with another one - possibly a different brand.Abe
  7. Noel,I have 4 SATA II drives (2maxtor,seagate,WD) and 2 SATA dvd burners.....no problems.XP is running in 3, the 4th has XP and Vista 64. I repeat I had no problem with any one of them. I have an Abit IP35 which has 6 SATA inputs...........as you can see I am using them all......Disk management of course shows them all.Did you boot up with the XP CD and let it find the drive for you? I believe that's what I did in each instance of XP installation.Abe
  8. Even though FSX+ACCELERATION runs pretty good, I only use my VISTA 64 with 4gigs of ram for video capture and rendering, it is faster in that respect. I stick with XP pro, smoother, more reliable, easier and less on security bog down.Abe
  9. I have been using ATI for some time. My older system, which I still have and use, have ATI 850XT which served me(and still does) very well. The HD 2900XT (1gig) is made by Diamond. Like I said, No heat, No special cooling. I am using an Apevia case which I love.Also, 2 more concerns of yours. Power, my electric bill remains practically constant since before and after I got the 2900 and NO NOISE (lol).No experience with the sapphire. Reputation, as far as I know, is as good as Diamond.Abe
  10. For whatever it is worth, I've been using the 2900XT (1gig) since October, seems to be working just fine with FSX and great with FS9. I use it a lot for video capture and that also is working fine. In addtion to the performance, there is no noticeable heat generated.Abe
  11. Just like Walouigi mentioned............CTRL+F9 works just fine.Abe
  12. Thanks again Emile.I'll probably get an External Sata, if it does not work I can always take it back.Abe
  13. Peter,Thanks very much for the specs - very useful to know.Emile,I am not clear on the installation of the "RAID driver". Are you saying that you had to install the Raid driver and use it in order to be able to access the drive? Is that because of the limitation of your MB or a MUST with any MB? Would appreciate an answer. I have 6 SATA slots and all are occupied with 4 drives and 2 Sata burners. I do have 2 addtional Sata inputs.....external, hence the question.Thanks again, gentlemen.Abe

    The best thing to do is to create your OWN traffic file, something as simple as this:AC#22,727AA,1%,4Hr,IFR,0:39:59,00:56:54,60,F,737,VHHH,2:49:59,03:06:54,60,F,727,VHHXAC#23,727BF,1%,4Hr,IFR,1:00:00,01:16:55,60,F,747,VHHH,3:09:59,03:26:54,60,F,727,VHHXAC#3,747BR,1%,4Hr,IFR,1:19:59,01:36:54,60,F,747,VHHH,3:30:00,03:46:55,60,F,747,VHHXAnd see if it works.Abe
  15. Anybody using a Sata External? How does it compare to Internal and USB2 and Firewire, if all of them run @7200?Thanks.Abe
  16. I had some problems with my onboard sound as far as video capture.I have an ABIT IP35. I got an Audigy sound card. It came with a CD. The updates were prompted by Creative's CD, downloaded and installed.Installed the card, with no problems, and no change in the BIOS except for disabling the onboard card.I repeated the same process with my new XP-sp2 partition and Vista homepremium 64. All installations were flawless.Abe
  17. Would appreciate a flyable flightplan(s) to VHHX from ANYWHERE.Thanks.Abe
  18. Compared to Cyberpower, Mwave is much better. Practically there is an issue with all builders. The reason I picked Mwave several times, was PROXIMITY, I live less than 40 miles away. And whenever I had an issue with them, I called them up and drove up and resolved it. Is it perfect, of course not. Again, compared to other vendors, it's acceptable.Abe
  19. In NO way I am knocking down FSUIPC. As I mentioned earlier I am using it in FS9 and in my oldest FSX installation. I probably benefit from it quite a bit. What I am saying is this: in the other 2 instances of FSX, one in XP and the other in Vista 64, I do NOT have FSUIPC installed. It does not seem that I am losing any BENEFITS. Possibly because I am not using anything that is dependant on FSUIPC.I run a navigation program (XCONN) in conjunction with GPS and mapping programs like MAPPOINT and STREETS and also Flightsim Commander (limited) flawlessly. I am sure that some of you who responded would find FSUIPC invaluable and a MUST-HAVE. The reason I started this post is more out of curiosity than anything else. And I do appreciate all the responses.Thanks.Abe
  20. Just to add my 2-cents worth. I have FS9 and FSX installed in folders side by side - of course in the same partition - and run both SEPARATELY and ALTERNATELY, with no complications.Abe
  21. Forgot to add that I am getting much better FPS in the new XP PRO and Vista 64 without FSUIPC.
  22. I am using FSUIPC in FSX with my old partition of XP.However, I am also using 2 other instances of FSX, one in a new partition of XP PRO and the other in Vista 64. Those 2 do NOT have FSUIPC. Both have SP2 and ACCELERATION. I notice NO restriction and NO difference in performance whatsoever with my OLD FSX.Any thoughts?Abe
  23. Randy,I bought several BAREBONE systems from Mwave for the past 10 years. Last October, I needed components that they did not have in a barebone system. I ended up getting all the components I wanted and had them assemble it and test it for $79. It is not the PERFECT company, but it is better than others. I was happily satisfied with the outcome.Need any questions abswered, let me know.Abe

    Thanks Nils.Guess what. I downloaded the XCONN file.....it was the same as the one I had previously installed in FSX back in March of this year.My problem was that the serial port PCI card I had installed was not working. So essentially I had no functioning com ports. I ended up by installing a free program by Pete Dowson - GPSOUT - that works well with both FS9 and FSX. It creates virtual serial ports in pairs.I do appreciate your help, Nils. And my contribution back maybe of help to you.Thanks again.Abe
