Good deal. I'm assuming DirectX 11 is included in the Win7 install?

So I have my card now, so I was able to complete my new machine (in sig).

I have done nothing but install the vid card, the drivers for my bluetooth mouse/keyboard, and 3DMark06. OS is Win7 Ultimate.

So I'm going to run clean install test of the card. Then OC the i7-920 and test vid card again, and then attempt to OC vid card and test again.

Hopefully the numbers go up and not down!

I thought it was installed with Win7...? I never had to install DX11 and the heaven benchmark worked on my 5850....

Other than the benchmark though games will come with DX 11 installs no doubt.

I switched from a pair of 5870's to a pair of 5850's.


Not only did I recoup over $300 (I sold my 5870's for what I paid for them) but they actually perform pretty much identically (in fact my 3dmark06 score went up 700 points from pair to pair with both at stock clocks with the 5850's over the 5870's).

I expect the 5870's would pull ahead at higher resolutions but I run 1920x1200 max and as such don't see the point.

That was the setup I originally wanted to go with. It is one of the best performing per money spent setups out there.

It looks great too as it hides your psu pci e connectors instead of having them on the front.

I switched from ASUS to XFX. lol. Sold my ASUS and bought XFX. Don't ask. lol. Anyways, I got a bit before I shipped the ASUS out to test out Crossfire with them. Only got to run Vantage(needed to get it out today). I don't know if all CF/SLI is like this, but although the max FPS was a lot higher than just a single card, the min FPS was actually lower than with just one card.

Robilar, have you oc'ed the 5850s over CCC? If so, which way did you decide to go with: bios and msi AB or AMD gpu tool and msi AB?
