did anyone get this combination working as good as an 8500GT/8600GT?
I used to read everything about it but I am not up-to-date with latest devlopments / drivers.
At that time the answer was NO and I had to get an nVidia.
If I can get rid of the video card, then I can use a PCI riser card for the tv tuner and everything fits into a very slim case...
That, and the extra heat generated by the silent 8600GT I have. Plus that I never got the HA to work (CPU 40-50%). Actually it worked once for a couple of days while using PowerCinema (5-10%) but I was unable to re-create those conditions. Not even with a OS re-install (Vista Home Premium).
