    Geforce 6 & 7 is really OLD. You guys really need something NEWER! Just my 2 cents.

    Heh! I like oldies_but_goodies...

    You should get a load of my Klipschorns. They were built in 1961 (no kidding).

    Nothing better IMO!

    On topic, if you know of a better AGP card, let me know. nVidia seems to work the best.

    I probably have a 7800 Gs stashed somewhere that you can have though maybe your 7600 Gt is better as it has more ram

    (- the only thing I remember for sure was they (76/7800) were bloody expensive back in the day when they came out...

    Thanks, but my 7600GT is still working great. Just takes a while to find drivers that have been patched for the latest kernel.

    And, yes, they were quite expensive, at the time. I paid over $200, on sale.

    I puked a fan last year, and couldn't find a suitable OEM replacement, sooooo...

    As is my nature, I over-engineered a solution -- I went with a pipe-cooler and 80mm case fan. LoL!













    Dissipates the Arizona heat nicely. I figure it's good for a few more years...

    OMG! I saw a pair of these at a hifi show back in the early 70s. The show was held on a stinking hot day in a brand new hotel (all concrete and no airconditioning) and I kid you not, the tech was powering them with what looked like a small tansistor radio that was playing Emmerson, Lake and Palmer's "Tank".

    I swear, concrete was peeling from the walls and 2 girls feinted from over-pressure in their stomach.

    For KH (what is Ser.# or model#) I'll just say: old stuff was far better... Back then, and it is still today... Couple of years of difference and they would be as old as I am... I've listened to these on several occasions, and I was young then... I'm ESL guy...

    True!

    I've powered these things with a variety of amps, over the years -- won't list them here, due to the nature of this thread.

    Suffice to say, I'm currently feeding them with a superb-sounding Harman/Kardon AVS 125 receiver (main: 45 watts x2).

    I've never turned the volume past -20 db -- it's impossible -- it'll damage you and the building. No kidding.

    This setup WILL make you physically ill after a few minutes at -30 db -- shakes the house, rattles the dishes, and jiggles your guts, in a very unhealthy manner! My Klipschorns are dressed in "Theater Black" -- similar to the current "Ash Black" but less grainy. They were designed for stage sound reinforcement -- concert halls, et cetera. Turn them down, and it's pure bliss.

    Back on topic: I *feel* the same way about my rig (see below). I'm sticking with my 'legacy' setup, until it blows up.

    It's the functional equivalent of a '55 Chevy with a 454. It just requires some patience, waiting for nVidia to release new drivers -- that's all...

    Very impressive VINDSL, unfortanantly the money that you spend on PC's, is something I just plain don't have, because I spend all of my spare money buying the latest Cell Phones (I have both an IPhone 5S and a Samsung Galaxy S4) just to give you an idea of how I go bonkers for the latest Cell Phones and Tablets (I plan to buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 soon as well), sorry for getting Off Topic Moderators.

    Do try these speakers with some proper SE A-class amp or tube SE (not PP) amp. You'll be pleasantly surprised, I'm sure.
    Even a less than a dozen watts will prove enough.
