Also, sorry about the dupe; I thought I checked, but there it is on the sidebar... *sigh*.

comment VirtualBox guest not acknowledging expanded drive; Win7 on Win7
@cremor I had a hunch that it was the snapshots, which I do have on that VM. I'll have to give the suggestion in that answer a shot when I'm at my machine. Also, didn't realize I could expand the system partition while running :-) At least I'm aware of GParted now.

comment Losing keyboard functionality; weird behavior
Thanks @Hardy; I'll update my question with more details. Unfortunately, I don't think it's actually the keyboard itself.

comment Losing keyboard functionality; weird behavior
I know the monitor/display drivers mention seems like it should be unrelated, but I'm inclined to think it has something to do with it, as it's the only real change I've made to this system since I got the keyboard (actually, in a long time). Could something have happened when I performed the display driver rollback?

Sorry; could the downvoter comment? Have I asked something inappropriate?

comment Copying PNG with transparency from browser shows a black background instead
Just a note; you can open the URL in Photoshop, saving you the intermediate step; Windows (I'm sure other OSes will do the same) will download it to a local temporary file, and open. This (I've just observed) retains transparency.

comment Enable card plus onboard video
Thanks for your quick response Tobias; That may work under different circumstances, however the third display I want to connect is actually a crappy 19" LCD TV with VGA in, it doesn't support DVI/HDMI/DP. Also, I don't currently have an HDMI cable, nor a DP cable, just several VGAs and the 2 DVIs currently in use. The card has 2xDVI, 1xDP and 1xHDMI.

comment System speed throttled by low quality hardware?
@MaQleod; Thanks, I have come to that conclusion and increasing RAM should circumvent such potential read/write lag, but am curious of other possible culprits too.

comment System speed throttled by low quality hardware?
Thanks Gilles; I understand there are no hard-and-fast answers to this sort of inquiry, but my example was quite specific to my situation. I'm considering 10K-RPM or SSD, as I'm running various resource-hog applications, such as the Adobe CS5 suite, and IDEs like VS 2010. I just don't want to end up in a situation where I acquire various high performance, high cost hardware components, only to have the overall operating speed jeopardized by a slow HDD or other possible culprits. Any suggestions to common pitfalls that some may experience when trying to build a balanced system?
