once updates for ME done restore also becomes part of it.

Some food for thought, when buying new system, if old is running ME or better real easy to network to new, use KVM switch for 2 computers (about $35) so only 1 keyboard/mouse/monitor, if using dsl or cable 2nd 10/100 card should have differnt chip set, makes ID easy for setup/trouble shoot. Makes good backup and any little stuff you really did not want to loose when moving to new system still at your finger tips.

It depends who you trust more: Adaptec or MSFT? I believe it's the other way... GoBack makes window restore redundant!

just spoke to visiontek. the company is still up and running. yes they are still manufacturing product. yes there financial issues are not good. they are attemting to sell the whole company as a unit to prevent liquidation. and the warranty is intact. of course this is subject to change w/o notice.

NVIDIA stated that they will not bail them out. pny is getting into vid card biz and may fill gap or may purchase. notice on their site time seems to stand still with last "news post" 06/02

used over 50 of the Visiontek g2 gts, never seen one fail, with nvidia ref drivers working great not really concerned about warrenty. Do not know what visiontek did wrong but it was not product or support.
