    Yea for me! I finally took the plunge from my trusty Sapphire 512mb 3850. I skipped the 4K series and bought a Sapphire Vapor-X 5770. I know of the possible shader/bios flash issue but have flashed cards before and am comfortable with it, and have a floppy drive still installed. :laugh:

    I had a 2600XT then the 3850, looked at the 4850/70's alot but then the Vapor-X comes along with the little blue light of bling. How could I pass it up? :D

    I figure it will serve me well on my 17" 1280x1024 native monitor. Now if CODMW2 will drop below $50 I will be set. :toast:

    Hey, enjoy your new card. The Vapor-X series are really good. It will be a quantum leap in performance compared to your old card.

    You don't even need a floppy drive for bios flashing anymore.
