How bout a graph then?

^LFMAO

but he's so right

But I wouldn't let ONE SPIKE (drop, well) DICTATE my gameplay experience.
Most of it's over 60 fps , yes ? Be happy
sorry for the caps- too lazy to look for smileys rite now.

It looks a lot worse if you see only min and avg. But looking @ the graph you can clearly see that 6870 kept things above 60 97% of the time. Also, that last spike's more than likely an MCOM blowing up in my face. Framerate doesn't really matter when you're exploding...pretty much a done deal at that point.

yea im thinking of putting another 6gb of ram into the system, giving me 12gb total. Thats the biggest killer for flight sims i think. I play everything at max so it can b quite demanding on the cards and ram. ne1 played A-10 DCS? the graphics r ridiculous but it does stutter when i start blowing **** up. So im thinking more ram is the go or ramping up the cards a bit.

Alright so I decided to hook up both 6 pin connectors and it works awesome.

I do however have a glitch of some sort. Only in MSI Afterburner, and the device manager does it state I have a 6800 series card. In CPU-Z, HW Monitor, AMD Overdrive, and the FFXIV benchmark program it states I have 2 x HD 4550. Now my previous card was a single HD 4550.

Also I have been using both my 32" LCD, and 24" LCD as monitors. Even with the HD 4550, it only showed up as a single card. Anyone know how I can correct this?

My Windows Experience Index for the graphics went from 3.8 to 7.3, and damn near x9 better benchmark, so it would seem like the card is working.

I'm going to post a few pics once I get back home.

soooo guys I OCed my 6850 as suggested by coffeejunkie on his thread and I have it working a lot better than before with SmartDoctor, I guess I just had some issues with Afterburner when I first started it.

Core Voltage: Stock @ 1149
Core: @ 910
Memory: @1180

I just cranked the fan after a while because it dropped down to 20% when it was cruising @ 66*C and I dropped my CPU to all stock speeds... Very happy with this. What do you guys have ur 6850 @?



oh here is a snap shot of my profile to prove something so that i can belong to this group

Wow ash welcome to the thread who says pretty girls dont play games!!! lol not a bad overclock on ur 6850. I know my 6870's will b stable at 1200mhz memory and 950mhz core. Dont really have to push them to hard as yet as 6870's in xfire r very impressive. Im waiting till winter to really get some overclocking going and get that max benchmark score. lol

Got both of mine @ 920/1150 stock voltage with 70% fan speed on load and it's a dream but I'm gettin CPU crashes due to all the extra heat, and the worst thing is I can't even see my damn core temps because of the unlocked core. :/

I guess I'm gonna disable the unlocked core but leave the same voltage and speed to get an idea of what temps the core is hitting, probably gonna put the cpu under water soon.
