Yea. The HD470 ****ing pwnt my previous card. I had my friend install it for me, and he had some trouble because the card is huge. BUT after it was all setup, and after a few LONG ****ING hours IMPATIENTLY installing Warhammer Online, and downloading patches and drivers and yadayada, it finally worked!

I can't play the game on high settings because it turns into a Powerpoint presentation in PVP areas, but with the settings slightly above medium(Medium in WAR is still nicer than high in WAR), it runs super smooth. I have yet to have an issue, or at least issues that were the fault of my computer(World Lag, Server Crashes, etc).

Protip#1: YOU DO NOT NEED A GOOD COMPUTER TO RUN WARHAMMER ONLINE. Meet the minimum specs and you can run it on medium+.
Protip#2: WAR or GTFO.

Eternal thanks to you guys at this forum.
