Your problem is underscanning. Your ATI card, when running with HDMI, defaults to underscanning the display for some wierd reason, which gives it those black bars around the image.

You can fix this by going into Catalyst Control Center and in "Desktops & Displays" right click the picture of the TV in the bottom left corner (not the big rectangle in the middle, took me ages to figure this out) and click "configure." In here there should be a section where you can adjust the borders by moving a slider to the right.

That should fix your problem.

I recently finished building a new computer and had no problems with any installation (thank god). But I realized that my cpu, an AMD Phenom II 955, is only being recognized as an 800mhz processor (this is not CoolnQuiet).

Anyway, the fix for this is to update the bios, and I have no idea how to do it. I downloaded the BIOS file from ECS but I am not able to actually get it to flash into the motherboard. Can some one take me through the process?

I'm attempting to build a gaming rig and I'm trying to figure out if the difference in performance between these two cpus is enough to spend $55CDN more on the phenom II 940

AMD Phenom X4 9950 Quad Core Processor HD995ZXAGHBOX - Black Edition, 2.60GHz, 4MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Quad-Core, Retail, Socket AM2+, Processor with Fan - $170CDN

AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition Quad Core Processor HDZ940XCGIBOX - 3.00GHz, 6MB Cache, 1800MHz (3600 MT/s) FSB, Deneb, Quad-Core, Retail, Socket AM2+, Unlocked Multiplier, Processor with Fan - $225CDN

Also, how many watts should my PSU have if I use a 9800 gtx+ 512mb.

I am Canadian and I am attempting to make an American PSN to take advantage of the free Rag Doll Kung Fu thing. When I try to get past the street address/ zip code part it keeps telling me my address is invalid. Any suggestions?

That controller will work. It says in a compatibility chart for all instruments across both games in a OPSM.
