mentioned being able to see the gpu temps w/rivatuner.
My 9750 hasn't arrived yet, so I haven't been able to test this.
rluscombe: Ok, now I'm jealous. I ordered mine thru PCTorque on the 19th @ 12:30am (I worked Sat night shift). Mine is still showing in build and I received no response from the email I sent this morning asking about the out-of-stock...
If I understood you correctly, you are saying that some stuff plays out thru the SPDIF port and some doesn't.
This is possibly due to the format. SPDIF will only play stuff encoded at 44.1kHz or 48kHz. (and some at 32kHz)
