Anyone here gold members of sapphire select club? There was a a BFBC2 giveaway but that QUICKLY went away due to the limited quantity. I bet there are losers who refresh their screen every 10 seconds hoping to be the first one to click the "Redeem" button. mad.gif

Alright...got everything installed turned off the system and I successfully unlocked!

448486

I used the new drivers, but I am getting a message that my card does not support the new drivers or something. Also, my card is in low power mode (thus the underclock)...how do I fix these issues?

Finally, I am not posing with the toxic club link in my sig! lol thumb.gif

Congrats!!

To the other posts that have issues with skyrim's graphics, have you guys tried the "Large Address Aware" mod? Basically Skyrim only uses up to a max of 2GB of memory, but with that mod you are able to use more. And also edit the Skyrim.ini files with these settings under "[Papyrus]":
iMinMemoryPageSize=100000
iMaxMemoryPageSize=5000000
iMaxAllocatedMemoryBytes=1800000000

Not sure if these settings were the reasons why I'm not seeing the same lag as you guys in town though...

Thread Starter 

We ALL SHOULD BE ... if you bought a SAPPHIRE GPU CARD, and you REGISTERED the CARD I think you're automatically enrolled as a SSC Gold Member or whatever the highest Membership is ... and they have some good perks for being so from time to time ... so no reason not to be.

Don't get me too excited. The Q6600 is still one of the best purchases I've ever made. It took 4 years for this thing to fall behind, it's definitely a trooper.

And to to505, thank you! I had the patch to allow it to use over 2gb but those .ini file changes gave me a noticeable boost in the cities, it's now a lot more playable in them.

yeh i used a customised ini file from someone who basically has the same setup as me. worked really well!! also you dont need a mod to address the extra ram, you just have to add a command to the .exe which you can easily do through the steam interface. i'll have a look at the command and post back tomorrow. also i know its going even further off topic but does anyone know the max safe/recommended voltage for a C2 revision 955? I'm starting to think mine may be holding me back a bit even though its at 3.7Ghz. The cooler on my toxic does such a good job though that my CPU temps are a hell of a lot lower than they've ever been so i now feel i've got some room to up voltage and clocks a bit more as long as its safe smile.gif
