I also tried checking the BIOS; the only shared memory option there is the one for the onboard graphics which is Disabled for both.
I'd be inclined to double the RAM, meself..
that mobo should take 4Gig, I reckon..

Also if I try to rollback like I mention eailer,my info wont update and still say 12.6 even though I put 12.4.,same thing if I change to 12.7

Honestly 12.6 would be ok 12.7 Will Degrade your WEI

Hence I went back to 12.4 Mind you I installed 12.7 After a clean Install of Win7

So I take it has many issues before giving it a Thumbs up

To me it isn't any good yet until they do some more changes
YEah I just tried the 12.7 driver out of curiosity yesterday and man is it broken,skyrim crashes like crazy and get the display driver has stopped and recovered error and my games went 10fps down so I went back to 12.6 which performs well and gets higher fps. Put 12.6 back and got rid of the skyrim issue,amd still needs to work a lot more on this driver because right now 12.7 imo sucks and needs lots of issues fixed.

Indeed, 12.7 is Crashamatic - instant black screen lockups on the A-series I play with.
I too retreated to 12.4 - apparently 12.6 is uninstallable on AMD's own E-series .... if anyone can prove different I am ALL EARS

So there skipping 12.7 all together? nothing but Beta versions im not sure how solid these are because the 7 series cards still have issues

I get random driver crashes and sometimes lockup during Game play these 7970's aren't all that special when the drivers just plain out suck micro stutter and all

It's gotten better though

the AMD numbering system was kinda semi-abandoned a while back..

- there's quite a few 12.7 BETA's floating about, it's a question of finding the right one
- some are better than others at specific 7*** series cards, for example..
- seems it's a matter of picking the one that works best for your hardware..

- anything pre-5*** will use the 12.6 LEGACY driver, until it's updated..
- AMD say it'll be 6-monthly reviews for that one..
