Fair warning, if you use a graphics block for W/C, make sure you put the card in with strong screws before you add water to the block, it's been known to bend and sag mobo's to the breaking point.

If you ever need L/C help support, just ask, I've been studying a lonnnnnnggg time. Oh, Photonmoo is really great at it too, just don't use plastic connectors.

@ Enigma8750. Do you have a larger pic of your avatar? I can see that there are some numbers or letters in there but can't make it out.
yea, i about cried when i thought i broke my new 310$ motherboard...

and i'll be sure to hit you up if i have any questions or issues

Bri... Here is the Cipher dial that the very ingenuous Germans used to sync up the two Enigma machines before the encoded Radio transmission. The first thing that they would do is say B-2-2-16 and then the man with another Enigma Machine would tune his dials to B-2-2-16 and then they would begin the code. This was the heart of what made this machine so hard to crack. Because the cipher itself could be changed on the fly so if you figured one out there were 3 to the 26th. power x4 = 70304 different ciphers that would have to be Cracked after it. This is the Dial. The British forces actually captured an Enigma Machine from a U Boat and they killed all on board the Sub and then they cracked all the German's transmissions. Since they would let the Germans succeed in some battle plans the Germans never figured out that we had captured one. It was the best kept secret of all world war 2.



Enigma... is an unsolvable Cipher or Question or an unexplainable occurrence or person

Thank you very much!

Ah! Had to point out the old GPU I'm still running. lol

I can always count on you, Rockr, to add to the sickness.

As of current, I have not begun any research on the GPU. Although, I'm thinking about trying XFX brand. They seem to be doing a great job.

Any recommendations? I know several of you guys have been upgrading video cards recently.

Since I now have 2 PCI-E 2.0 slots, I really want to try Crossfire.

Okay Since we are talking Crossfire. Here are my Unigine Heaven DX11 Benchies for the 5770.

1x5770 was

FPS 27.5
Scores 693
Min FPS 16.1
Max FPS was 75.9

With 2 x 5770 in Crossfire

FPS 51.7
Scores 1303
Min. FPS 15.02
MaX was 149.7

The Two Low end boards almost beat my 4870x2.
They both scored in the mid 19000's in the 3D Mark 06 Scores.

Enigma,

Those benches from your crossfire set up (Pages back in this thread) don't seem that good. My single gpu stacked up fairly well against your crossfire. I did 3d mark 06, default resolution, no aa, with my evga gtx 285 2gb ftw edition with a slight oc, stock clock core i7 870, and got these results.

3dmark Score: 19394
SM2 Score: 7880
HDR/SM3.0 Score: 8919
Cpu Score: 5413 (would be higher but I turned turbo down due to a squealing noise from the cpu)

That being said I used to be an Intel and Nvidia guy because that's what I understood, but now it seems that while they both are pushing the boundaries of tech advancement to unseen heights they also are charging a premium price to be a part of the revolution.

It takes a lot of asphalt to be able to afford what Intel and Nvidia are offering whereas with AMD and Ati I don't have to work as hard to get the same performance. That to me is the winning advantage. Sure I may never get a stable 4gig OC out of my 550 or I may never break any folding records with my 5770, but for me a 3.8gig OC and 60fps or better while I game with all the eye candy on is well worth the dramatic reduction of asphalt I have to deal with to get it.

AMD, if they continue with their market plan, will keep converting guys like me. My money will be with them until they start thinking that the end user needs them and not the other way around. Something I think Intel and Nvidia have lost sight of. Will I ever upgrade to the most powerfull card on the market? Probably not, but I will be about a year behind as long as I can afford it and to me that's the best market strategy there is.
I know, I sit by my machine now and look at how much it cost.
Does it do the job I wanted it to do? Yes, and it can do 3 other jobs at the same time.
Does it look the way I wanted it to? No, I've still got to change out 3 LED's and paint the whole dang thing, not really a problem, gotta sell my junk first.
Can I play all the games on it? Yes, not a dang thing that won't play on this and there doesn't seem to be any on the horizon that will get clogged in it. In fact, from all my research we would all probably be better off buying the next gen X-box and hooking it to our flat screen.
Is there anything wrong with it? Yes, I turn it on and it sucks every bit of cold air from around me. Especially noticeable when I just got my head shaved or when wearing shorts.

"Doesn't this guy know there's 8-10ft of snow still on the mountains?" Say the looks I get from people when they see me wearing shorts in April.

Yeah, should've asked someone before you tightened that down, it's finger tight then 1/4 or 1/2 turn with the screwdriver. Saved me big bucks on my pump!

I know the post wasn't just for my benefit even though I was the one that asked, because you know that I was in Germany, on the border. I saw the thing in a museum. There's one there, one in the Smithsonian, one in London, those are originals, don't know how many copies there are.
Hey, is this where you got the idea for your screen name??

XFX 5850, obviously, or not, get the cheapest edition and O/C it yourself. Hard not to say that one card without knowing your maximum resolution, refresh rate and what you'll use it for. I always want to get the maximum card that will fit! Love that motherboard!!!
It is now officially the first with native USB 3.0 and native Sata 3.0. I know there are others, but this is the only one with Native support meaning the chips are built in.
I also know what you mean about the Sata ports facing that way, I don't understand how those who have them straight up deal with it.
Mushkin ram, I wanted Mushkin ram but they were sold out. Stupid holiday sales!!
