I feel a little bit guilty yet excited for the parcel to arrive tomorrow smile.gif What are these custom bios'es you are talking about?

According to that guy that got his 290 early the 290x bios should work just fine on the 290x's no unlocks though as the die is most likely laserd.

My brother was struggling for months to sell his 6990 with its WB..
He ended up giving up and taking $350 AU for it..


You will love the new cards... the difference from tf 6870's to cf 7950's was amazing...
But within two days I realized there was still not enough Vram lol
5760x1080 is a prick for Vram consumption..
I'm waiting till the next gen (nvidia/amd don't care whoever offers more Vram for less...probably amd: )for an upgrade though
3-4gb isn't enough to even bother...

Yeah I already looked at ebay and saw 6990 with waterblock going for less than 6990 without... So I will just put the retail jet-engine cooler on it and try to sell it. And then 6990 block separately maybe.

I am still at work with a large box containing all the good stuff beside me - so excited to go home today!
