    Just be sure to slide that 'High Performance GPU clock settings' slider all the way to the right for the 7850s. If you don't clock them (without any voltage adjustment) right in the AMD driver to 1050MHz, it'll be a really huge shame, since every 7850 owner knows (and I had two myself) that every 7850 will do at least 1050MHz using just the AMD catalyst driver.

    Thanks for the work and write-up, W1zzard.

    And the problem with that 7950 crossfire review is that AMD's drivers are so very, very much better and faster now than the initial drivers were when the test was conducted. I'd say the results from that review are now utterly useless for anyone looking to compare cards today.

    Hey guys, first time poster here but long time reader of TPU reviews.

    So here is my situation, i mostly play WoW and you are one of the only sites that still produce WoW gpu reviews. I was wondering a couple things, how exactly do you measure the FPS in wow (flightpaths like tomshardware?) and on blizzards website it says the game does not support SLI but i clearly see very good scaling in your review here.

    I am in the need of an upgrade for wow, here is my current system:

    2500k
    gtx 465 1gb
    8gb 1600mhz memory

    I get very odd choppyness with full ultra at 1080p in wow, and i am to believe this is due to my 1gb frame buffer (this is my theory, as it is the exact same kind of choppyness that i get when i do something stupid like open wow and swtor at the same time).

    These 650ti boost are an amazing value honestly, i was wondering if they would run SLI on my current PSU (its an antec HCG 520w if the link doesent work, 40 amp 12v rail):
    Antec High Current Gamer Series HCG-520 520W ATX12...


    THere is currently an MSI twin frozr ti boost on sale at newegg for 165.00 with a 25.00 MIR making it a 140.00 dollar card, i may grab two of these. Any replies appreciated.
