I downloaded those new drivers and yeah I agree with The General the lay out sucks. So I downloaded the 84.21 drivers instead and they seem to work alot better. Can you post a link to a good after market cooler.

Now buy another one, overclock them to 675/1800, and SLI them.

Greater performance than Dual 7900GTXs or Dual X1900XTXs.

god I was so intent on what I was buying but after saying what you just said, I now want to go buy one of those dirt cheap 7900 GT for like 240 with the 400 core clock and volt mod it again and go SLI with my other volt modded one.

But yeah that would be pretty useless seeing as I have 1024 x 768

You say you "Want another 7900GT," so you only have one?

It didn't the last time I updated. That's why I said that.
