    .....the 285 for an ATI 5870! :cool:


    Along with the usual companies, Both Asus and MSI do them with Volt modding built in to the BIOS that you can up the vcore and push the core to over 1000mhz on the core! :eek:

    OcUK dont have them in stock so I'll probably grab it from Ebuyer. (shock horror, i always but from OcUK!)


    One of the main reasons, other than DX11. Is that if i sell off the 285 now i can still get a reasonable amount for it, it wait much longer it'll be worthless.

    Installed. Man this is big. :D

    Performance is obviously better, I dont do benchmarks, but game play is the real benchmark IMO.

    Very nice! Can you notice much of an improvement in games like MW2? Your old graphics card was hardly a slouch ;)

    That's one Tidy case! :)

    Well MW2 is capped at 90fps thanks to IW trying to make the game 'Fair' :/

    So i cant see an fps boost in that. But Dirt 2 looks lush in DX11 and all at max details. :D
