Here's what your score would look like if you decide to go crossfire, 99% scaling ftw playyya.

I didnt disable AA, I ran it w/o changing anything.. and yes I plan on picking up a second 6850 and a second 22'' monitor when I get the $..

Good to hear things worked out for ya! It's so dependent on persona cpu/gpu config, you just never now.

A buddy of mine couldn't get a 570 to do anything for him...plopped in a 5870 and it took off. It seems Fermi really needs a core i5/7 to take off right now.
post #2464 of 6939
I'm wondering -- what's better ??

A GOOOOD 23in monitor pref >1080p along with my current 19in 900p ???
Or 19 x 3 eyefinity???

Pros: (option 1 )
1. Finally full HD
2. Separate workspaces.

Pros : (option 2 )
1.EYEFINITY GAMING!!!
2. Frankly, nothing else
Cons (option 2)
1. NO full hd so some movies are a waste.
2. My dad'll get pretty pissed :/

Both options are gonna cost me ~ 230$

Add to the above!!

Thanks!!

FYI-- will upgrade gfx later this year-- +6870 or 28nm FTW!!

Jodiuh, what volts are u running that ram at ?? Thought they were rated for about 1.3V but those timings (yum)!

Btw, my friend has that ram and his mobo won't go below 1.5V so he's scared ****less . Infact he's using a single 4gb dimm borrowed from me ATM.

Acc. to the JDEC spec.. DDR3 should not ruin before it hits 1.8 V right??
EDIT : can someone recommend a program in windows to set ddr3 timings ?? Other than AOD thanks!! I'm running mismatched 2x2 and 4x1 ATM and is somehow running in dual channel.

One is much better... if u said 2x 19'' and a 23’’ in the center than that, but come on, 3x 19'' monitors.. = 4 black 1/4'' bars in front of ur viewing area where as the one high quality screen would yield better viewing pleasure. At least that’s how my eyes work. Well, that coupled with the fact that at work I look at a 19’’ all day and the dimensions are just irritating.

It means nothing w/ regard to performance, but this ram is sick. I'm up to 1600Mhz, 7.7.7.24 @ 1.3750 now!
post #2468 of 6939

Well, eyefinity will have to wait a few years till I get my own landing pad
Going with a good 23in monitor then -- lookinf doe an LED , not just led backlighting.. Buying in a coupla months' time and will worry about it then

Thanks anyway!

That's what I said.. But he claims that low voltage ram should work w/ the new bulldozers and doesn't want to use the stick till then :/ such a twerp. I'm getting my stick back from him :@ 12 GB FTW!!!

EDIT: may I ask you to post your spd and memory timings from cpu-z ?? were your sticks 1333 to begin with ? His are 1600 . No idea what Lats.
post #2470 of 6939
I'm on netbook now...post later.

The default spd's 7.8.7.24 2T @ 1.35V. I have them running @ 7.7.7.24 1T @ 1.375V.
