[citation][nom]ElMoIsEviL[/nom]I do, however, have driver issues with my nVIDIA cards. I'm not the only one..."Nvidia Display driver stopped responding and has recovered"Must be VERY familiar to nVIDIA users.[/citation]

That's odd, have gfx related issues with a rig with a single 7970 than the main with 2x680 in SLI that never have crashed. To me the nvidia drivers have been way more stable than the amd and i have been owning several cards from both brands over the years.

the Nvidia hack is a part of a slew of attacks in the last few months. the others include LinkedIn, eHarmony, Last.fm, Yahoo, Android Forums, Billabong, and Formspring,
the total number of users affected is around 10 million, so far

[citation][nom]skaz[/nom]If someone from nvidia reads this. Thank you for encrypting your stored passwords =)Such a necessary precaution that not all companies do.[/citation]
Exactly! Nvidia did everything right; 1) The passwords were hashed and unlikely to be decrypted 2) But as a precaution changed everyone's passwords anyway. 3) They sent an e-mail out so we all would know.

I forgot I even had an account on Nvidia, which wouldn't really matter if it was compromised, but it's still nice to know Nvidia is doing what they should and telling everyone what happened, rather than letting them find out about it from the news *cough*Yahoo*cough*

[citation][nom]blazorthon[/nom]Maybe you need more points or more posts to post images.[/citation]

The point being is: HOW much more, before I can do it...oh well, anyway, thanks for answering and let's stop this (clearly off-topic) discussion right here.

I don't get that on my gaming rig and on the main rig it only happens when the TV card starts to play up.

No I just responded to a comment, the fight had started long before I got here.
