I would of course have to fiddle with a ton of stuff to get my osd and overclocks right and everything how I wanted it; but that was only the initial set up. After that all I would have to do is open afterburner and then game.
big friggin whoop.
Now with my 7970 all I do is open up trixx and RP and that's it. Simple and I can monitor things and make sure I am getting the performance that I payed for. It's not that much of a hassle, in fact tweaking hardware is fun. Crazy Idea that people on overclcok.net might like to mess with their hardware.
