    Been going well for me for just over a month of constant trolleying around.. I do hope they stay that way though. Won't be moving now for a while.

    It was the single most difficult thing I've ever bothered putting on a computer. The heatsinks kept falling off all the time and I had to constantly open up and re-fit. Seems to be going fine now that they've been heated up with some F@H. Worth the trouble though knocks 50C off stock heatsink temps.. and it's silent!

    I'll be rocking the little 2400 Pro for a while until I can find a good deal on a 5850.

    Bought it in June last year for $209 ($189 really because I got the egg to refund me $20 for a price drop) and sold it for $130. I figured it would be wise to go ahead and get rid of it before the next gen hits and I wouldn't be able to get $100 for it.

    Yeah man I saw it but that's a little more than what I'm wanting to pay for a used regular one. I mean I could get this one with what looks like a really good cooler for $35 more brand new.

    Is it better to get a reference or non-reference model? I know the non-ref. coolers can be better but don't you lose some features?

    i had that one, and if you wanna play with overclocking then its a no-go, you can NOT raise the voltage on it:)

    but if you're not into that then go for it, its silent

    I would go with the reference card if you plan on OCing it but if not the get the newegg card for the warranty

    I would only do some small-time OC'ing through CCC with it. I think I'd take silence over a big OC any day. If I can't find a used one and they don't do any price changes on the egg I think I'll get that one.

    Psh, I'm closing in on 1000. ;) :laugh:

    What card is that? A 4870x2?

    If so, I'm still trying to find one without forking over 80 bucks or so. Everyone that has them cheap is oos. Go figure.

    It seems that although it's a good bit better than my old 4870, a 5850 would give you a lot more bang for the buck. I guess I'll keep looking for a 5850 then.

    So I'm not going to be able to get performance info or even a SS of the quad-quad core Xeon system, apparently Intel wanted it back last November, so he hasn't had it since December :(
