Liquids good. What is it you are using at the mo with the dv500? adobe? I dont think the new version of liquid would work with the dv500 board as it just gets it power from the cpu and graphics card. If you were changing to liquid you would probably have to change your graphics card for it to work with it. Also if you go to liquid pro you get the breakout box as well!
