    You'll love it. right now I just finished playing some BC2 maxed out with 16AA and all and it took it like a champ. Keep in mind only one card, the 2nd one is in my i7 folding for the CC.

    Wow, awesome. Can't wait for it to get here even more now.

    Oh, and I just got some canned air and cleaned out my PC. It wasn't as dusty as I thought it would be since I haven't cleaned it out in a while. But there was some kitty hair stuck to my Zalman cooler. :shadedshu

    OK here ya go T77! as you can see ive already skint it up alot but i dont really care as of now cause my cathode inverter has crapped out so you really cannot see it unless you shine a light in the case. once i get a new inverter i will do 1 or 2 more coats on the case. Last night i did some more OCing but didnt let the CPU get over 65 deg. Got it at 3.2ghz with ram running 800mhz 1.8V

    you might find one of those little AMD stock coolers with the 4 heatpipes to be a better cooler in there

    is there really any purpose to the plastic shroud on it, to me it looks like an orb cooler.

    I'm not sure about the cooler on it. I think the plastic shroud is so the air from the fan cools other areas, although I'm unsure.

    But I'm in the middle of testing the card out now, so far so good.

    The 5.4 is my hard drive.

    But I'll run 3D mark here in a moment.

    as you say the shroud is probably to focus a bit of air on other parts like the VRM

    It's a WD SATA 160GB. It's old thou.(Has Molex power, and SATA power connectors.) Pretty sure it's only 5400RPM as well. It's not a big deal. It's just a place holder until I buy a pair of WD 500GB Blue drives.

    I'm liking this card so far. I also realized I don't have any up to date benchmarking programs. *sigh*

    But I'm going to play some AC2 here in a bit and see how that goes.

    Only got to test it with Combat Arms so far. (I got like 100+ FPS on max settings, lol.) I'm going to try AC2 here in a bit. Should be pretty fun to play now that I won't lag at all.
