Meh too late, it's already installed no pictures from me.

Never had an AMD card before and I was a little worried with all the "bad" driver stories. Removed all my old nvidia drivers from my 8800GT and installed the new drivers. Haven't had so much as a hiccup. Card runs great it's whisper quiet compared to my 8800GT not to mention it was $119 at the egg with free shipping. Highly recommend thumb.gif. That is, if you can get for 130 and below.

Desk Setup: Mod Multibit > Gustard H10/Valhalla 2 and Amperex OG's > Sennheiser HD 600, ZMF Ori

Got an MSI 7770 yesterday. Had a crappy, annoying fan on it so I took it off and glued a silverstone 120mm fan to it. Now its a quiet little baby.

Temps are 70C under full mining load at 205Mhash 1100/300
Idles at 33C or less with new fan

Plays BF3 @ 1080p at medium/somehigh settings @ 45fps+

Full system power (G630 / 2x 4GB / 2TB 7200 RPM HD) is 33W idle, 106W mining, 140W gaming

360

I'm idling on 40C and full load 47-49C watercooled.

What block did you get? My card is not reference. I also wonder why your idle is so high.

Probably because I haven't invested in a proper watercooling setup, see picture tongue.gif

And I'm watercooling CPU, GPU, NB, SB and MOSFET. And only using one case fan, a 230x200 side fan on 620 rpm, and the rad fan on 750.

I'm trying to sell my XFX Double D 7750 BE but people keep telling me "the 7770 are 30% better yet only a few dollars more!" I had to add this little note to my classified:
Quote:
NOTE: When AMD first released the 7750's, they had power requirements to abide by so they can do without the external power. They noticed that the cards could get higher clocks if they weren't limited to power restrictions. They did but instead of re-naming them to something like 7760 or something... they called it the 7750-900. doh.gif Mostly so that companies can slap a "Overclock edition" label onto them. rolleyes.gif While the performance difference between the 7750-800 and the 7770 are something like 30%... the 7750-900 and 7770 are only about 10% or less.

Might be good to put something like this in the OP? The source is from Anandtech but this is my wording of what they said.

Stop asking "why would you do that?" We're in "the pursuit of performance" here.
Do you have Too Much Airflow?
