Re: Excel 2010 Formula Question

Well,

Re: Excel 2010 Formula Question

In looking at this spreadsheet... it is ALL messed up (yes I inherited it and have to present on the data within it).

Re: Using Video Card & Onboard Video w/2 Monitors

Halco,

Just run them both off the video card... you'll not notice a difference. The key thing for you to think about is the 27" monitor. I'm really curious if your 8600 GT can even push that monitor.
