Thanks Kmathern, but I can't use those, 1200 goes over the max vertical of this screen (the resolution given is the max).

Well then try these two

vga=837 or vga=838

which correspond to:
Mode 0x0345: 1400x1050 (+2816), 16 bits
Mode 0x0346: 1400x1050 (+5632), 24 bits

Thanks!! I changed it to 838 and tried. It worked.

Then changed in /boot/grub/menu.lst and all is fine in the world again :happy:

Great to hear a nice sys build story success! Photos look good too =) I never got round to setting the correct vga= config as I use Grub2 from an Ubuntu install - supports Ext4 ootb (as does Grub 'legacy' according to some people..?) - I just need to find out how to edit this for Grub 2 so I get reasonable tty font size. Don't care about Splashy...

To pass vga=? to Grub2
1) Edit the /etc/default/grub file.
2) Locate line: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=â€

@Eadwine Rose

Have you been using the onboard network card this whole time? I am curious on its performance. When I first got the motherboard the NIC was a bit flaky so I started using a PCI card instead. I am interested in getting a new router and want to give gigabit LAN a try. What has your experience been?

Pfoo.. old post hahaha.. I wondered why it looked so familiar then saw I started it lol

I have been using the same hardware since the build so no new cards added or anything. Using all on board stuff.

I have a router, but it is an older one already now, WRT160N, works peachy with the system.

My experience with all this is perfect. I haven't had a flaw happen yet *knock wood* No more sgfxi needed and line in works as well now without workarounds. Has it only been 2.5 years that I have this system?? It feels longer! *laughs*

Hmm I need to update my sig.. I have more ram now.
