Debating on 7850 brand - Page 5

post #41 of 59
Yes. Here's a guide. It's a pain, but probably worth it in the long run:

http://benchmark3d.com/how-to-completely-remove-any-driver

Regarding drivers, if you want options that AMD for some reason hasn't given in their latest drivers, this is a modded version:

http://benchmark3d.com/amd-catalyst-12-4-whql-7900-mod

But if you don't know what the changes they talk about mean, then I wouldn't worry with it - just install the drivers that come with the card. Also, when I uninstalled my drivers, I could not get my monitor to work in a DVI port. I had to use an old monitor and hook it up to my card's VGA port until I had new drivers installed. Just a warning.

MAN, if I was able to catch the thread before you bought that 7950, I just discovered a site that sells the 7950's for DIRT cheap, unfortunately, the checkout procedure now is kinda messed up, they need to fix it but, once it's done, it'll be a hit.

Here it is.

My regards and a good luck wish with the 7950.

I love it, has a lot of room and keeps everything cool but then again I do have everything on intake(except the 140mm it's still rear exhaust) including a 120mm in the 5.25" bays. Only thing I don't like about it is it's lack of dust filters but not that big of a deal to me. All in all extremely happy with my case choice. smile.gif
