I'm switching from two GTX 460's to a XFX Core 7870! smile.gif I can't wait for it to get here!

Anything I should know/expect?

how much did you get the XFX HD 7870 card for ? use the latest 12.11 beta drivers and 12.10 cap 1. overclock the HD 7870 to 1.2 Ghz and you will be faster than the GTX 460 SLI. good luck. thumb.gif

I got it for $209, and it comes with Farcry 3, and DiRT Showdown, and theres a $20 MIR... biggrin.gif

I'm expecting it to be a fair amount faster, the 460's only had 768mb of ram, and for 2560*1440... it just wouldnt cut it lol

What do I use to overclock it?

oh you had a GTX 460 768 MB . those are horrible for 2560 x 1440. were you budget constrained. because the ideal card for 1440p is a HD 7950 OC.for overclocking you can use sapphire trixx or msi afterburner. my pick is sapphire trixx.

Well, My bujdet was $0... I didnt even have the moeny for this one haha. I don't do tons of gaming anymore, so it'll be more than good I reckon.

and okay perfect, I didn't know afterburner worked for AMD too, I'll use that for sure!
