    Which Driver for Radeon 9800 Pro?

    Omega's are overrated IMHO... 1. Use latest Catalyst (6.3 atm). Use only the display driver from ATI (no CCC). You could use an older version of the display driver with a card like the 9800 Pro but the performance benifit will be marginal to non existent, check this link from AT (it covers...

    most essential 80's film

    though one... If we're talking american movies it is "Platoon" as far as I'm concerned. If we include international movies my vote goes to "Idi i Smotri" also known as "Come and See".

    Amplifier hiss

    The Fog of War

    Recently attended the annual movie festival in my town. I saw a lot of great movies (both fiction and non fiction). But the Fog of War was the cream of the crop. One of the best documentaries I've ever seen. Highly recommended!

    Help me find closed, circumaural headphones

    The replacement for the HD545 was the HD565. Virtually the same headphone. The HD565 has also been discontinued. So yes the store in question is selling 4-5 year old headphones.
