Thanks for info -- dedicated server will hopefully help.  Strange -- those types of things seem to come and go in spurts.  Some weeks all basically problem free.  Others, get server errors and delays logging in or out.  Overall it's not horrible -- just frustrating when you end up losing a post you've written and have to do it over again.

Off on a tangent -- just noticed you changed your username on forum.  What happened to Valtam?

@gold_finger re. forums - when the dust settles on 2.2 I'm looking at moving the forums from a shared host to a dedicated server, that way I'll have command line control over performance etc.

I tried responding to your post twice during the day today (once just minutes ago) and the forum server kept erroring out on me.  (Very frustrating.)   Glad you got it working.

Nevermind ... last piece of hardware came in today (early) and I decided to plug the card in and then install.  I booted in safe mode for the install, shut-down.  It came up OK on the noveau drivers, so I went ahead and installed the 340.58 drivers and all seems great so far.

Hi,

I likely am doing a LL 2.0 64 bit install soon.  The system will have a GeForce 9600 GT SC video card.  The card is currently not in the machine, and I am wondering if it would be simpler to put it in before install or after and then update? 

I ask this I guess as I struggled a bit on my last install with a GeForce FX5200 card with blacked out screens, etc.

I ultimately want to get this card on board with the 340.XX drivers.

Any thoughts, or experiences?  Thanks.

Chris
