    Periodic Black Screens When Not Gaming

    Hi Everyone. The desktop I occasionally use has been acting oddly for the past year or so. Since I have a little more free time, I'd like to fix it. I'm a little stumped. I'd figure the video card is the culprit but I'll let you all hazard a guess. The specs are: Phenom II 955 @ 3.2 790FX...

    nVidia GTX 470

    I'm considering selling a Zotac 470, with the reference cooler. It has been run overclocked (in varying degrees) during gaming sessions, with MSI Afterburner. Looking at 560ti's, which can be had at the sub-$200 level, I'm thinking about a $130 ceiling? Or am I out to lunch?

    nVidia Surround Resolution Oddity

    I have two Acer X203H's and one V203H. All monitors natively support 1600x900. However, with Surround enabled, the maximum resolution is 3840x800, which is strange, even after bezel adjustment. This is well below the maximum and is a 16:9 resolution, so I didn't think I'd encounter any problems...
