    From what I've read around the grape vine is that a Dirt 2 demo is scheduled for release soon (should be within a weeks time). Some speculate as soon as tomorrow. AMD has already released drivers for CF support Vista/Win7 32-64 bit and XP 32-64 bit which is available at TPU.

    OF2: DR release date 6 October, Demo out - November 18
    FUEL release date June 2, demo out - July 9
    DiRT 2 release Date 1-4 December, demo out ** of December.

    CM doesn't have a good track record but at least a demo is coming.

    Not all... My PowerColor 5870 didn't. :(
    But hey - at least I've got it on decent price. Right now in Poland 5850 (if you will manage to find them in stock) are almost in same price that I bought my 5870...

    This game will unlock in approximately 1 day and 14 hours

    Screw the demo when I only have to wait this long to get the full version, really sucks that I still cant pre load any of the files yet :(

    if you are using nvidia your onDirectX 9, if your using any ATI Radeon HD 5000 graphics card your on DirectX 11

    atleast if your running Windows 7, or have updated vista to platform update

    If the "dirt" in Dirt 2 looks like that of the pic in that video then I'm sold on the "dirt" alone.

    woooo found a demo download and tested on an ATI HD4650, Game looks a lot better than Dirt1 and seems to run pretty much the same on the crappy GPU i have.

    1280/1024 res / 4x msaa or how ever u spell it, other settings on high and a few on ultra 13.5FPS lol
