Mitubishi WD-73C9 I got this steal of a deal Through both dell and bing. Bing offered 20% off any purchase on the dell website by browsing there through bing. then during the black friday sale, where dell had the tv at 1400$

So I got the tv for 1400$ - 280$(20% cashback) = 1120$ + tax on the 1400$!!!!

BOOyah!

got some nvidia 3d goggles for like 179$

here is a video reveiw of the technology



but im having a hardare issue getting my pc to run again with the new card. could be the motherboard, powersupply, harddrive... i dunno im pretty stumped. here is the thread link if you wanna try and help.
http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=627150

i got a gtx275 to replace my 4850 because an nvidia card is required to run my games in 3d on the tv.

Q6600 2.4Ghz
msi p45 chipset motherboard
antec earthwatts 650
8gb ddr2-800
1 tb seagate barracuda



thusfar i have a 4850 1gb card running in an i5 desktop, and the picture wont fill the screen completely, tech support told me that all nvidia cards on the 3d list will be able to fill the screen without a problem.


anyone else had any experience with these 3d tv's yet? i havnt heard anything about how 3d looks on my tv! i cant wait to get my computer up and running so i can play a game in 3d!

if anyone is interested there is a huge 100+ page owners thread about them here

Go into CCC > Display Settings > Scaling > Set "Underscan" to "0". The nomenclature might vary slightly. It seems that ALL ATI cards default to a 10% overscan (shrinking or black border around the picture) when using HDMI...

I can't help with the rest :(

:cool:

heya randy, yeah i was looking for some type of scaling option in the catalyst control center and am not able to find anything, ive searched through all the options several times one by one beforehand, and again after you posted, there are no such options for mine.

is there another way to get to those settings? as im sure they still exist someplace.

I have windows 7, and CCC version 2009.0813.2131.36817

Yah they got rid of the underscan slider a few versions ago now you have to use the graphic image, from CCC help page



Adjusting Screen Position and Size Automatically for TVs
1.Based on the navigation system contained in the ATI Catalyst™ Control Center window, do one of the following:
•Navigation menu—From the display palette on the Desktops & Displays page, click the desired TV, and then click Configure in the context menu that appears.
•Navigation tree—From the tree in the Graphics Settings tab, expand TV Properties.
2.Click Adjustments.
3.Select the Automatic Settings check box.
The ATI Catalyst™ A.I. determines the best display position and size for optimal viewing.


EDIT: whoops that was for auto. do what randyman said :)

I personally CAN'T STAND the newer CCC interface. OK - Try to get to the screen where you see the Display Icon in the lower left area of CCC. Look for the TINY triangle in the LCD Icon - there are display options there (that TINY triangle is a pull-down mneu). You should be able to find the Scaling/Zoom settings in there. I *ALMOST* returned my 4650 because I literally could not find this stupid menu! :mad:

Good Luck :cool:

did you not like the 3d experience? why were you selling them? what monitor did you use them with? games?

Was trying to sell them because of http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=613176 which also tells you about the monitor.

I liked the 3d experience, and actually pulled them from sale because I heard a few 23.6" 1920x1080 120hz monitors are coming out soon. I wish I had room for one of the big DLP sets, but the wife barely puts up with the 42" LCD :-/

You're gonna love it :beer:

My friend has the nvidia 3d glasses and they're awesome. I only used it with one game so far, World of Warcraft, which looks sweet. There's a setting in WoW to allow the cursor to adjust its depth to match the interacting object - nice! Takes 15-30 minutes to get used to, but then it's great.
