GOOD?
Only thinking i would change is performance gpu and memory clock all the way up. ati clocks it down to meet certain standards from what ive read. even maxed it runs cool. My friend has 2 5870s in xfire

different cards might use a different brand of GDDR5 memory, some of them might not be able to reach 1300MHz

Depends if it can handle it.
If it can't, it'll crash. And you'll just need to set it lower.

i played crysis and it started to get like a bunch of pixilated boxes all over my screen, and crysis crashed, looked at the temp of the GPU and it said 78*C. so i down clocked it to factory specs.
