There is no news on any Dominator or other high end models yet, but we can be comfortable knowing them won't be far behind the XMS3. As usual, the pricing should be low and availability probably high.

Last week my HHD failed so installed a new one.Using Win7 to try it out to see what it is like. The problem I have is before my HHD failed I was folding with 2 GPU's on XP,now using Win7 does this mean I have to have 2 monitors connected to fold.Help needed.

Im assuming that Win7 will be just like Vista, and you either need a monitor on each card or dummie plugs dude. XP is best for a dedicated folder.

I'm sorry I'm lost, what's the monitor thing for ?

In Vista you need 2 monitors to run dual GPU's or dummy plug on one.

I did not know that but it makes complete sense! Perhaps even a DVI > DSUB converter could be hacked so that it tricks the graphics into thinking a monitor is connected.

if you monitor has more than one input just plug that one into the 2nd card. Its what I did.
