    A8N-SLI Deluxe Motherboard Problem

    Thanks for your reply, funkymonkey. I had checked the top & bottom surface of the motherboard. No metallic & nonmetallic particles were present. As an added precaution, I had placed a paper below the sponge to increase the insulation. I have purchased the board in India.

    Dirext X 9.0c Buggy?

    No reports about DirectX 9.0c being buggy (if anyone has, pl. share). But even in the remotest possibility, it is, what other option do you have? OpenGL has its own set of problems. The extensions on OpenGL can be a pain to implement (Only Mr. Carmack could do it properly :D ). DX 9 also has...
