it's the OEM version. But you have a TRUE so that shouldn't matter.

I was just checking it out and Newegg has 2 seperate listings for the 940. Dunno why, but here's the cheaper one. I remember paying like $169 for mine right around a year. This is a steal.

Yep this one comes W/O the fan, those of us who are upgrading usually do not need another one.

You can verify it yourself by reading the first post in this thread. It has the links to all of the information you need.

It should be as easy as that for the 940 and below, WITH the right BIOS. The 955 and 965 take a little creative computing to get them going for now. To get the details read the first post.

Hope this helps

Here is what I did for my 720.

1.reboot/enter bios/reset to default/save&exit.

2.shut down/install 720/reboot.

3.upon reboot enter bios/reset to default/save&exit.

4.reboot to windows(just to make sure it will)

5.reboot/enter bios/set prefered settings/save&exit.

6.sit back and enjoy.

This will also work for the 940 and below(955/965 will be a little more work as NTTD as said below)If you are nervous about the extra work involved for the 955/965 I'd just get the 940.It will oc just as good as the 955/965 without the hassle.

Good luck

Well first off nice job with the thread guys , so far it's been a good source of info. I've been a reader for some time but never had anything worthy to post. Until now (I hope). I've had the system in my sig for a couple years now. I originally had a 8600 gts until last week I got my hands on a 4870 since i've heard if some M2N-SLIs not booting with the 5770s. My system is runing fine even with the old X2 but when gaming my screen locks up into squares and sometimes I get the good old BSOD. Other times it just locks up, goes back to the desktop saying the display driver stopped responding and after resetting my fan's profile in ATI Tray Tools I'm back in business. This however happens several times a day at random intervals so its kinda annoying. I've tried:
-disabling powerplay by keeping the GPU clock fixed at 775
-overclocking/underclocking the gpu a bit
-different versions of catalyst/drivers
-contacting HIS for support

None have worked so far and I'm still waiting to hear from HIS. Since I noticed some of you guys have 4890/70s running with this mobo I was wondering if any of you ran into similar issues. My last suspect is my PSU since I am aware is not of the best branding and maybe I'm running it to close to the limit. So anyone have an idea as to what it might be?

someone on this forum is selling it for $135 brand new ..not bad.
Not bad indeed :-) I wish there was a spare 8800 GTS 512 MB somewhere for the taking too. Those cards are old but I have one and would not mind to have an SLI. Last time I saw one on tiger direct for $84 but did not care to get two. And that was summer of 2009. Back in a day I used to have two 7600 OC in SLI on that board, O boy was I happy:-) Time is really flying in computer world and prices go down on everything.
Best regards!
