Soon I will be the only TF member with a 9200SE Shawn's upgraded and now charles will be. I won't be able to upgrade 'til next year. At least the prices will be down then maybe I can score the r520.

ATI tool, i actully got it to max out to what the program would allow when i put the fan on the side cooling the passive heatsink off but if i ran a game long enough the heat did get to it and it would artifact. and my FPS nearly doubled in most games. in warcraft 3 tft i got about 30 FPS extra
