Any chance you can do some drop test onto a hard floor to see which one loses any keys, mouse ball, battery cover ect. Or perhaps give feed back if they are captured so there is no way of that happening please.

Solo - Video card sizing question

I did the searching and know a 10.5 inch card will fit into the solo but I can't for the life of me find the length of the cards themselfs.
Anyone happen to know if the Sapphire 4870 1gb toxic will fit?

Mobo / Software

I have fallen in love with MSI's live update 3 software I have with my old 939 system. I wonder if this is a MSI only thing or do other Mobo manufactures have their version of it so they are all easy to update these days?
