    Systems that work with the brain, and a few that don't

    I've had poor results, trying to get the brain up and running, running well for any amount of time. I've tried 3 machines. They have all been AMD /nvidia based. So that led me to ask this question to all brain users. Could you copy and paste your specs to a reply and summarize any issues you may have had, or wether it works flawlessly? This may help people looking to start out, knowing they want to implement a Fusion Brain at some point. I know I'm in the market for a new system, and really, I would like some input to help me decide what to buy.

    HP pavillion dv6436nr Laptop, Turion 64 X2 TL-56 / 1.8 GHz
    Northbridge nVIDIA GeForce 6150
    Southbridge nVIDIA nForce 410/430 MCP
    Vista Home Premium 32bit Driver compatabilty issues

    HP pavillion a1710n PC, AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Dual Core / 2.2GHz
    Northbridge nVIDIA GeForce 6150LE
    Southbridge nVIDIA nVIDIA nForce 430 MCP
    Vista Home Premium 32bit Driver compatabilty issues

    ASUS M2N-MX truckputer, AMD Sempron 3200+ / 1.8 Ghz
    Northbridge nVIDIA Geforce 6100
    Southbridge nVIDIA nForce 430 MCP
    XP Home SP2 Driver compatabilty issues

    Hopefully these will be the only negative ones on the thread.

    I really am sorry some of you guys are having USB issues, but it's really tough to troubleshoot without a non-working computer.

    Well i haven't built the system yet that I will eventually put into my car and run these brains off of but for now im using my desktop to create the skin and images and things, and the brain is hooked up to my laptop to test everything. After a slight driver issue that was solved shortly after asking 2k1Toaster about it, it seems to be working good other than my beginner programming skills with my skin.

    Intel must make a boatload off of these 82801 chips. Holy cow.
