    Howdy peeps i just took back my BFG 5900 128mb Card and swapped it for a 9800Pro. Seems like theres alot of cool peeps here. Is there anything special i should do before i install this card. I have already uninstalled my old Card

    make sure you have the catalyst drivers and driver cleaner downloaded.

    after uninstalling nvidia related stuff, reboot into safe mode, run driver cleaner for nvidia files, and run cab cleaner (driver cleaner > tools > cab cleaner), then power off your computer and install the new card.

    that should be it!

    it's normal, so don't worry about it.

    just crank up the aa/af and enjoy!

    just a 'thing' you have to deal with..

    getting through those menus can be tough with aa enabled.

    at least you don't have to deal with quincunx!

    This is because your card probably has DVI out (or Digital Video out). and/or svid out. Some new TV's and Monitors support this (DVI), and thus you can have 2 video channels going!

    i think he's referring to the menu text looking weird.

    at least that's what *i* was referring to..
