so far so good but i haven't really got tp play with it yet as wee the gf bought a $600 Jimmy/Blazer and well its turning out like a $600 truck.
so i basically got to install my card and Ive been outside trying to beat a rusted freeze plug into submission.

but so far it seems to be cooler at idle than the 4890 and the fan doesn't seem to ramp up as much either under load

i was just playing around with sins
and for the first time ever i was able to play at double actually 8x speed.
never ever ever was i able to do that even with the phenom II 1100 and the 4890
and before that with the x1900 it would damn near stop on 2x

on a different note i was playing around with some settings and i can get my screen resolution to 1776 x 1000 in 1000P wish i could find something that would say if its healthy or not for my tv/monitor
and some whits turn very light blue in HD
