    I have that exact card in my rig....love it, blows my previous HD3870 out of the water....oh and on release of the Hd I payed about twice as much....lol

    Using the factory cooler at the moment...can get a bit toasty but I run it at 100% and its bearly audible over my 900 case fans!
    AsRock says thanks.

    Beats the 4850 right and takes less power than the 2900XT overclocked which i'm fair sure of ?.


    EDIT: Hows the fan on it ?.

    I have outscored the 4850 in Vantage and 06 but I rarely play those games any more...lol
    Plays Grid and Crysis warhead without the staggering I got with the HD. as far as power IIRC this card can draw just over 200W @ full load!

    As for the fan....look at the previous post!

    Yeah my 7900 is of eVga and there support was top + there rebates were.

    But as i know of and what they told me in the past if you get a lower clocked one of them chances are it will not go much higher as they sell them at a higher price.

    just FYI I run my Zotac at 802/2005/1205 24/7 for gaming and testing, not that it should change your mind on branding, but this one seems to clock a bit less than the avg.
