Also, last night, I bought the download of 3DMark06, and I have run it 3 times so far.......

1st try - 6600 - last night
2nd try - 5500 - last night (after a reboot)
3rd try - 5790 - after successful driver install this morning

I am still feeling really tired, and I am at work now, so I am trying to think if there was anything I forgot to do last night when doing the install and everything. Do those scores seem right?
That cant be right, i get around 5300 with my rig.............

i won't comment on the low scores.. because he hasn't overclocked.. once he gets it to 3.0ghz+

also.. we should also wait to see when he's getting his other x1950xt Crossfire Edition..

Yeah, stock speeds for now.... will OC once I get the Antec case finished, and the proper cooling in place.....

Not holding my breath on going crossfire..... will probably upgrade card before I do that, due to limited availability of te crossfire edition cards..... unless I have a wonderful deal fall into my lap.

Lol, my bad, I don't think I even touch on this at all in the main post..... Well, I am cutting holes in various places to route cables. Once that is complete, the entire inside of the case (all plastic is already removed) will be painted..... (will give you some suspense with color choice for now...). Also, the case window isn't going to stay 'clear'.... it will be a different color, but still transparent.
