    This is my daily rig, no need to hire some big guns you now, the 5770 is more than enough, it outperforms both of my 4850's in c/f by about 5-7 FPS in Crysis. runs lot cooler, more power efficient. Can't go wrong. Yeah, the SSD and the PSU are new. I had a PCP&C 860 Turbo Watt before.

    Nice the 5770's that good. I've been debating on a 5850 or 5870.. hehehe I have my GTX285
    core: 712, Shader: 1621, Memory: 1366. I really like that card, but i need to replace my 9600 gt in my other rig.. It kicked the bucket last week.. Luckly I have an 8800 gt till i get something new. I would much rather get a new card for myself than to get something for my Domain controller. You know?

    Yeah I get you. The 5850 rocks bro, anything higher is just overkill, however a 5870 is an awesome card. Just don't need to spend the extra bucks unless you just want to rape benchmarks, you know?

    I hardly think I fit into the category of older members, I only started crunching in July and joined here in September...maybe experienced is a better term?
    Awesome!
    BTW, I may be sending you some PMs in regard to settings for OCing Q6600s, I'm going to try and convince my friend to OC his to 3.2ghz or so...it's a 1.12v stock one so I think it has potential :toast:

    I meant older as in older then our newer members.. :p but I'll add experienced too.. :roll:

    Which Q6600 do you have G0? If so they seem to clock better than the C0's and so on. but yea what ever you need I'll help bro! I have mine OC @ 3Ghz and the temps are around 47c with a AC 7 pro cooler. oh and it's a G0.

    I hope so.. I was told that 1 5850 should out perform my GTX285.

    Yea I don't think by much, but it will be DX11. Plus, when they drop to around $200 and CF will be great.

    It's my friend's Q6600, it's a G0 cooled by a Xiggy HDT-S1283, keeps temps @ 35-40c full load stock speeds, so it definitely has potential :cool:

    I use a SDD and just today I had a blue screen. After the forced boot down and restart my OS (XP) performed CHKDSK. Related or not? 90 days of folding and 20 days of chruncing is a lot of rewriting.
