Yeah. Personally speaking, I've never had an issue with a bad card. Now I know that I'm a bit lucky with that as there's always gonna be a small chance of a bad piece of electronical equipment in the bunch, but I have a (ATI) card with an AGP slot that I'm positive if I put it in an old system with one of those slots, would still work. smile.gif

How do you achive Memory OC around 1450-1500Mhz? I mean, I can't get over 1350Mhz... Do you somehow increase the Memory Voltage? If yes, how? When I'm trying over 1400Mhz, after 10-15mins of BF3, I'll get a weird artifact coming out of the players' eyes... Like black laser!

My Core's clocks:

1000Mhz - 1.068V. -> Mem 1350 pass
1050Mhz - 1.112V. -> Mem 1400 I'd like
1100Mhz - 1.167V. -> Mem 1450 I'd like

What I've to do? ASIC 73.2%. Default Voltage 1.031 @900Mhz.

Beating up a subie is always sweet!! I'll have a pic of my buddies in a month or so. Put over $25k into his 02 2.5 impreza. On the other note, yeah we are loosing money. That's what happens anytime you buy gpus when they first came out. At least you probably didn't pay $635 + tax for one of yours like I did just because Microcenter had it the first day tongue.gif

Edit: Yeah I remember one of those drivers, I fried 3 280's and a buddy fried his 260. That's why I'm still easy on my memory overclocks.

We do not have to do tons of tweaks just because some coders who is working for AMD cant make a proper driver. I dont want to spend a few hours per day to fix driver issues. I dont want to format my pc tons of times. I dont want to install drivers one by one to try and see if they will work or not. Most of us payed more than what Nvidia users payed for their 680 but instead of good service all we get is nothing. We dont have to deal with this kind of issues. We need plug in our card install drivers and we should be good to go. Thats how things work for Nvidia. How hard to do the same ?
There are no forums to get official replies. This is enough to realize difference between 2 companies but i do understand why they dont have proper forums. Otherwise it would be full of messages like mine and surely it wouldnt help them to sell cards.
Good bye AMD you will not be missed. I will never ever put any AMD product inside of my case. I am sorry if i sound mad but these issues pissed me off a lot. I really feel tired of it.
I want to thank people who tried to help me under this thread, thank you so much for sharing your time.
and good luck with your cards i hope everything works well for you guys.

I have also had bad experiences with Nvidia Cards as well. Also you will also run into both hardware and software issues with nvidia cards. I work at asus tech support currently and there are alot of calls about driver related issues with the gtx500 series cards. He should even take a look in the gtx590 owners thread and see the driver and bios related issues they have to go through just like some individuals in this thread. I dont have an issue with my setup and i absolutely love my sexy looking hd7970 which is better at multimonitor gaming, better clock for clock performance, more vram available for multi gpu setups (3gb vs. 2gb). As much as I would love for you to change your mind you won't be missed AMD is for real tech enthusiasts not quitters tongue.gif

I'm with this Dude. I recently had loads of issues with my 7970 and fix it last night, I know very little about drivers and over-clocking but with help from people like this dude i did it:) I will always love AMD no matter what smile.gif My last card was a 5770 and had some driver issues to start with but when they where fix it ran like a champ.

Played around in Crysis 2 last night and noticed that none of the water was being rendered. If you jumped in you'd still be under water but as soon as you got to the surface the water disappeared and it was like you were floating above the ground. Did a restart and everything was back to normal. Weird.

I had tons of troubles with my 3 480's running is surround. 7970's were the best things that came to my 3 monitors. Yes a few headaches right now, but when everything is working, my gaming has never been this nice until now. More titles work on eyefinity then surround. I've bought a few games hoping to play on 3 screens and just no fixes at all for surround and I didn't even play the game. Now I can. I'm not going to say I wont be going back to Nvidia at some point cuz I'm sure I will. I go with whats best. I've tested and messed with a 680 in 2 systems. BLAH. 7970's for me until maybe the 780's.

To tell you the truth, I was playing the same driver game with the 3 480's just before getting my amd's. Same crap with nvidia, just a lot easier to install the drivers.

At finally, ASUS has released new version for DC II, DC II V2. Too bad there is no word about the DC II V2 on 79xx
