    It might not need more powerful GPUs. At those resolutions you probably wouldn't need to use AA :).

    True, the higher the pixel density, the more the jaggy edges gets blended out of the final image. Yet the trade off is you are allocating resources that was going to be used for AA to running more pixels. That trade-off could be near 1:1 if you are talking about 4x the number of pixels being generated on the screen trading-off 16x FXAA.

    Hello,

    Anyone know of any method (blind flash) to recover the BIOS after a bad or unsuccessful flash for the Aurora Desktop motherboard? Tried clearing CMOS and taking out the battery and still no go. Im out of warranty and any help is appreciated.

    What BIOS does your Aurora use? AMI or Award or phoneix etc?

    Are you sure it's the BIOS? Might be loose connections, badly seated components?

    I am pretty sure its the bios, was originally on A10 bios and when i flashed the new A11 bios, my computer won't post anymore. It turns on, just won't post. I haven't done anything else to it, but i have double check all components are in place.

    Don't remember what bios it is (aware, ami, phoenix, etc)

    MS-7591 ver. 1 and part #H869M

    So I hate to ask such a noob question, but: I have a 2.5" Intel 320 SSD. Will it work in a desktop such as the new Dell XPS 8500? And if so, what do I need to connect it?

    Yeah that should be fine, it's no different to that of a normal hard drive so you just need a SATA cable and connect the PSU power. I have an Intel 510 SSD in mine and it's just plug and play. Depending on the case you may need a 2.5" to 3.5" hard drive adapter to mount the SSD in.

    That's about it, connectors are the same across all modern drives, SSD or HDD, 2.5" or 3.5".
