    Welcome :toast:

    How do you find your card with newer games?

    Sorry still holding onto my two for now, still play any game out there with easy.

    And was it a worthy upgrade?

    i found the games i play with the 4870x2 all work flawless, never had any issues tbh.

    just the stutter problem with BF 3 which i sorted, with the new driver and the (pc) bios pci-e latency setting.
    Playing BF3 with gfx on Ultra for effects , high for most others and a few mids, looks fantastic and plays lovely.

    MW3 Always played fine from the Go, also the other cod series all been great, yes i do love this card... do have a bit of a melt on the backside, the melt is in the back-plate, looking very much like its the Ram chip under it, BUT never any problems.

    Idle Temps in Win 7 ult x64, about 10 services stopped and disabled.

    Thats good news, thats what i like to hear, as ive also had a very good experience with these cards even in crossfire they havent coursed me to much trouble.

    I havent played either of those games yet, i can get MW3 at anytime but so ill have to scope it out soon then.

    But its good to see you dont get many issues at all.

    I guess thats a good score? lol i havent run that yet, all i know is a can out perform 2x6950's in heaven benchmark hehe and run Crysis 2 at between 45-105FPS ;) MAX settings

    As for temps mine are just a little higher but under 50c for idle and max load temp of around 80c
