I think a Windows re-install is probably in order no matter what you go from, it generally makes things work better and removes 99% chance of errors or unknown/uncommon driver issues.

I'm always prepped for a reinstall, thank you very much for the heads-up fellas!

I did that and that was never the issue, at 12.8 drivers I'm stable in Kombustor (20 minute run at extreme), 3dMark11 (P and X), and gaming stble at my voltage now (1.256v @1200/1600) . You're right though, when switching from Green to Red or vice-versa it's better to do a clean install.

Mark_Thaddeus, checkout this PDF pricelist.

Their powercolor 7950 is just under PHP 11k, it's reference though.

I'd stick to non-reference as those reference coolers are quite bad.. Unless you're happy to buy an Artic Accelero and put it on there yourself? That would be worth it. Though you'd likely void any warranty by doing so, the much easier option is to usually pay a bit more and get a non ref card.

Ah yes.. Hmm fair enough I haven't had any problems personally so far and I've been on them since they were out.

My thoughts exactly. It's just fun to look at the price, though... gotta admit seeing a $268 card is mesmerizing......drool.gif

well they are beta drivers, and those come with their problems so i would probably wait for a full release to switch to 12.11. also isnt 12.10 out now as the newest stable release?

AMD is definetly good but I think alot of the die hard fanboys are over reacting to the newest beta driver which is very good for amd. One good driver and Nvidia is back on top + physx
