  1. ASUS P6TD-Deluxe GeekBench Score

    Run 64bit instead.
  2. I have dual monitors hooked up and working properly, but I can't change the refresh rate of one of them. It's just locked at 60Hz. Anyone know how I can unlocked it to control it manually?
  3. I added another 4GB today and everything runs great. Running Snow Leopard with Windows 7 in Vmware Fusion Coherence mode and still have around 4GB free. Pretty solid setup I'd say.
  4. I got the parts in yesterday and got 10.6.2 all setup. I'm very happy so far. I don't even need the VM for BluRay either. MakeMKV works perfectly. I can rip to MKV and then watch in VLC. Ripping only takes about 45 minutes. This is great!
  5. Yes, I did mean the P55M-UD2. For the RAM, you are using 8GB right now with no problems? Are you using the 64bit kernel? I heard that Fry's might have a deal on an i7-860 for $229. That's only $30 more than the i5-750 that I ordered. I'm going to check it out when they open today and see. Would prolly be worth it to grab that instead. I'm also thinking about getting two 1TB SATA drives for the build. Anyone have experience with RAID-0 on this board?
  6. I decided to save some money and potential hassle by going with the i5 750.
  7. Here's what I'm planning on building and I just want to make sure everything sounds good: Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P55-UD2 -Everything I've read makes it sound like this board is good to go. Even sounds like eSATA works. Processor: Xeon x3440 (2.53GHz Quad core with HT) -I haven't seen much about this under OSX but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Anyone have experience with this? Graphics: Nvidia GTX260 -I already have this card and have had it running with Leopard. Shouldn't be any problems with Snow Leopard? Memory: 4GB GSkill 1600 -I know this wont be an issue, but I've read that people have had problems with more than 4GB. Would adding another 4GB cause me headaches? Optical: SATA BD/HD/DVD Burner -I know that BD isn't supported yet but I should be able to at least rip them in a VM and playback with VLC in OSX. A few extra steps involved, but I had a BD player connected to my TV so I rarely watch on my computer. HD/PSU/Case all not important My plan is for a vanilla kernel install that's as stock and stable as possible. I had Leopard running for about 6 months on my current PC but trashed it because it ended up getting unstable. I have a MBP and I purchased an extra copy of SL, so I should be good to go whenever my hardware comes in. I wont be dual booting Windows. Any advice before I place my order?
  8. When you fullscreen a flash movie on one display and then click over to the next, the movie goes back to windowed. This works perfectly in Windows: http://www.gavinr.com/2009/04/18/dual-moni...l-screen-flash/ Any idea how to do this in OS X?
  9. netflix streaming beta for mac

    I know this is an old thread, but I just wanted to reply saying that this fixed my Netflix problem and my Time Machine issue. Thank you very much!

    Start over fresh. Remove the drivers, injector and EFI string. Then reboot and follow the instructions again.

    I was experiencing some random kernel panics after adding the EFI string. Not sure if it was related or not. I had been running just fine for a couple weeks before that. I decided to try and install the updated Injector and EVGA drivers to see if that helped. I haven't had a kernel panic since. Steps: 1) Reboot with -s. 2) rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/NV* 3) rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/Ge* 4) rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/ATY_Init.kext 5) Reboot into OSX 6) Install updated Injector 7) Install EVGA drivers 8) Reboot

    Looks like my PC CoD4 key works for MP with the Mac version. Performance is not as good as it is under Windows. I'm guessing the EVGA drivers might improve this. It's still playable at 1920x1200 with everything maxed though.

    Here's my success story, hopefully it will help someone. I installed the GT200 Series drivers when they came out, along with the latest Injector at that time. It worked for me, except for the dual displays. I just followed Kasakka's instructions down below and was able to get my second display working just fine. Here are a few tips to clear some of this up for people still having problems: 1) I did not uninstall the original GT200 drivers or Injector. 2) I did not not the EVGA drivers or latest Injector at all. 3) I did not need to use PlistEditPro to generate the hex. OSX86Tools did this just fine. 4) I did not use OSX86Tools to edit the boot.plist. Instead I opened the terminal and did "sudo nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist". 5) I then used OSX86Tools to Repair Permissions and Clear Extension Cache. 6) When I hit reboot my screen faded and I got the system error message. I powered my machine off and then back on again. Everything was fine. 7) When my system came back, by resolution was one notch down. I bumped it back up and it just sat at a solid blue screen. I power cycled my machine again and it came back as full resolution. 8) I connected my second display and it came up no problem, but my primary went back to the resolution one notch down. I was able to put it back this time without having to reboot. 9) In System Profiler, it says that my VRAM is 0MB for some reason. Not sure why this is, but I was able to load up Toca Racing Demo at 1920x1200 with 4x AA just fine. If the VRAM wasn't properly detected, I wouldn't have been able to play. I am very happy with the results now and am more than willing to help anyone else with this. Thanks everyone for all your help!

    I would really appreciate it if someone could post a quick guide in detail for me and anyone in a similar situation. I have a DFI X48/XFI GTX260 896MB setup running Kalyway Leopard upgraded to 10.5.7. I installed the Netkas GTX200 drivers along with the Injector. Everything is running GREAT on my primary display, however I have the problem that everyone has with dual displays. It seems that the EVGA drivers might be the best solution, but I'm a bit unclear on the steps I need to take to get that going. I imagine I need to uninstall the Netkas drivers and injector? I downloaded the modified EVGA drivers without the mac check. Can I just install those with OSX86Tools. Also, what would be the best way to backup my current configuration so that I can get it running again if I need to?

    Do you have 2 displays attached? When I installed mine with 2 displays connected, all I got was a black screen. After reading some people's comments, this seems to be the norm. I unplugged one of my displays and everything came up just fine.
