Looking good :)

Are you saying you have a PCI-E 1.1 slot? GPU-Z is saying 2.0 for you...or are you just informing people it will be a problem with 1.1?

Not sure what you mean, but of course it can. It's ATI's flagship card

And for the money, it better!

I was addressing skunk's screenshot - right-click desktop/personalize and you have Aero themes at your finger tips

looks much better

looking at you screenshot your win7 skin is default - right-click desktop/personalize and you have Aero themes at your finger tips

looks much better
Though I responded to your post, I'll assume your reply here is intended for Skunksmash since he's the one showing off the card :)

Though you're right, I'm sure he has his reasons for it being off

Thanks for the post Skunk.

I have really been thinking hard about getting a 5700 or 5800 series card, but I just don't want to go ATI.

All the info was very useful and interesting.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,
 
 

The X48 at 3.6GHz still won't match the framerate of the i7 at 4127MHz, I mean look at the difference in CPU scores.

I believe that part of the problem is your CPU bottle necking the card at 3.6GHz.
Still plenty of performance either way but more is better right?

Nice card none the less, I'm waiting for Nvidia's 300 series, and waiting, and waiting, LOL.

Me too (waiting for the 300s) I think my i7860 and DDR3 1600Mhz RAM (and SSD) will do nicely with one NICE card. (for now haha)

The wait is over,

Every PC needs good graphics.

Graphics processing has become an essential ingredient to the modern PC. Nowadays, we simply demand more from our PCs. If you want to enhance photos, edit videos, watch movies, play games, or if you simply desire a Premium Windows® 7 Experience, the NVIDIA® GeForce® 310 graphics card brings impressive graphics processing power to your PC at an incredible value.


Sorry, couldn't resist.

Oh and very nice card skunk.

Atikmpag.sys BSOD on ATI HD5970
Hi guys, I'm having a major problem with the "atikmpag.sys" BSOD error whenever I try to play video games (and the occasional random crash too). Oddly enough, it never happens while rendering in Cinema 4D, so I've pretty much ruled out it having something to do with how intense the GPU usage is....
