This is why I'm glad my E420r came loaded - I have no reason to pull either the CPUs or RAM riser, as all are maxed out...

I hope to try a Creator/Elite framebuffer in the E420r later today as I wait for the cable company to come to my house - my rear projection TV takes a cable card, but we can't get over half the channels. They came on Tuesday to fix the outside cabling, and left behind a cable box with the wrong channel lineup.

Why is cable TV so hard?
