I'm not returning this thing. Crysis, GTA IV, every runs smooth and its running perfect.

Not Re-installing windows, no way. I'm installing the heaven demo to see if DX11 is the problem or what not.

DTV Dragon, i dunno man. My 295 ran the game just fine. I upgraded from Win Vista Ultimate to Win7 Ultimate, so you might have no problem.

We'll see I guess, best of luck Dragon. :)

ONLY twice a year? Sometimes I reinstall twice a month on my benching rigs. :laugh: Seriously though, with Win 7 then using something like ninite.com, the whole process of reinstalling is fast and easy.
I have x86 and x64 ready on a USB stick. As far as setting up/tweaking Windows I have it all memorized, but I use Black Viper's guide as a well... guide. :laugh: I'm just refering to my main rig. Everything else are my wicked stepchildren and I don't pay attention what I do to those.

I just re-installed yesterday, and using the same key on two PCs right now, meaning I have to call MS to get it activated again.
Well crap! Everything I know seems to be getting thrown out the window. Perhaps if I give you my Dirt2 config file/hardware settings, maybe that'll work? Let me know, I'm heading home pretty soon, I can send them to you somehow. :toast:

Software A lot.
Benchmark Scores Its fast. Enough.
So using Unigine and Afterburner with voltage tweaking enabled I can hit 1003Mhz on the core at 1.2 volts and 1380 on the memory stock. What is the max safe voltage on this core? I ran it up to 1.265 and ran the core at 1100ish but it gave the demo occasional stutters. At 1.265 volts and 1100Mhz on the core it was still running 61C with the fan on 100%, I know my water cooling will run it around 36C at full load.

FWIW, I saw over on the B3D forum that alluded to the fact that the 5870 Vapor-X ver 2 and 5850 Vapor-X and Toxic use the same pcb. Also, from looking at backside pics of the on Newegg this XFX 5870 and this Powercolor 5870 appear to use the same pcb of the Sapphires too.

I had them with 10.1 until I switched my memory to run in ganged mode in BIOS. The crashing and big cursor went away after that.
