comment Trying to maximize USB3.0 speeds

Stop using the PC or risk Overwriting the file(s), once they are overwritten no recovery software can help recover them, Recovery should be done from an Image of the hard drive.

comment Can any video card drive two 30" monitors as long as it has two dual-link DVI ports?
dual link is only needed for larger 27 and up high res monitors, strange they said it supports it on both heads when it cannot do it because of memory. Let us know if the new card solves it.
