    Meh, I sold my 570 for £130 and got sleeping dogs worth at least £20 so got my Vapor-X 7950 for £110, that's the way I look at upgrades too :D

    £260 for the Vapor-X? Wish I'd of been looking for a new card when you was, I could only find it for £280 which was just out of my price range at the time, damn animals and vet bills... They alone this month would of brought me another 7950 at least. :(

    That's a good price!

    You know when using Trixx, it say's I'm running my card on PCI-E 1.1... Just want to be safe, is there any PCI/PCI-E drivers that should usually be installed or is this just another false reading?

    ... Nevermind about the PCI-E running at 1.1, that's obviously the power saving feature! :laugh:

    Does this look a little odd to you guy's for stock clocks on a 3Dmark Vantage run?

    ... Was going to upload a photo but it'll be easier for me to just type.

    3Dmark score - 16743

    GPU score - 17825
    CPU score 14163

    See my system specs for what I'm running without the GTX460 though.

    Yea, I don't shop there often, when I do it's usually cause I've found something at a good price like the 7950 I linked too, that's a damn good price for that card. I bought an 4850 from there years ago knowing about their reputation but it came with no issues, they even RMA'd it for me about a month after the standard 1 year warranty, not sure if they just didn't pick up on it or not.

    Meh, I did ask for it to be closed.

    Exactly... my old GTX460 scored 16k with stock clocks... I'm wondering what the problem is, the 7950 seems to play Sleeping dogs alright and got an average of 40fp/s on furmark 1080 benchmark.

    I really wouldn't worry about it tbh, Vantage is old anyway, I sometimes get funky results on the likes of 03/06 etc on modern hardware, at least you know your 3DMark11 score is fine.

    On another note, I happen to find Vantage the ugliest benchmark I have ever seen, it really is a POS looks wise, heck even 3DMark01 looked better for it's time.

    somehow 'Empty his sack' sounds a little creepy when children are involved....

    Best part about christmas - Steam Sales - and the fact there are always millions of gamers online regardless of the day, they get their presents and eat food over the keyboard. Just a regular holiday! :toast:

    I have to roll with a car with a maximum 1 litre engine for insurance below £2000 at the moment. Getting insured for anything bigger under 21 (by a mere few months) costs you half your damn soul in this country. They were supposed to bring insurance for women up and men down to a halfway point, instead they decided to bring women up to men's prices...
    My boss pays a little under £300 a year for his VW estate brand new, and Admiral come out cheapest for a Honda civic at £5000?! Sadly i have to roll with a second hand micro or a new Pixo on finance...

    Asus GTX 670 Direct CU II Top - W1zz gave it a 10/10, awesome clocks on core and memory, and silent as a sparrow's fart.
