yes it is lol


so to update:

ive tried this on another dell computer running vista 64bit i think and similar problem i think. wasent able to fully test. ive ruled out it being the GPU and PSU by trying different ones. the only thing left is the adpter, which o dont think is defective because its installing and its able to read usb flash drives.

i got it!
this is what i did. i downgraded my bios to a previsious version, and that stopped the BSOD. then i uninstalled both my internal gpu and external gpu from DM rebooted then let windows install them. rebooted, then installed the amd drivers for the 6670, then rebooted. then i went to the amd website, and downloaded the auto detect gpu drivers. ran that and oddly it came up with my internal GPU, but still ran it, then rebooted and what do u know, my desktop is on my TV!!!!!!! and is being pused through thr 6670!!!! WHHHOOOOOOOOO YEA!!!!!!!

ill have SS and Pics up in a few its late here i and i got school tomorrow.

Yea 3 days all day on it. I have like3 more Probs, but I think there reliant on each other. So once I get those situated

First one being that WMI stopped working, an ATI app fails to start at startup, my GPU is registered at 800/800mhz when it should be 800/1600mhz, it's running at pcie 1 when I'm pretty sure it should be pcie 2, and lastly I played black ops last night. Just chose some random graphic settings, but I was getting choppy performance. I think that is because of the low memory speed or WMI (messing up my CPU) or my ram sticks have to be swapped.

Or everything with the graphics speed could be because of the PSU not having the rite wattage.

I tried to "OC" it to the stock rated speeds and it just artifact really bad and crashed.

so i think ima do a system restore to the earliest possible state i have and re install eGPU. i want to update the 6670 drivers first before i install my internal graphics and AMD software. i think the reason that the card is not using the full 1600mhz its sopose to on the memory clock is because of a driver issue. hopefully that will fix it.
