Curious how well your going to run the 5850. IMO only people with overclocked I5's, I7's and X4's should invest in a 5850 and higher
Ah I see, well my specs are a Phenom II x4 940, 4GB DDR2800, ASRock K10N750SLI-110dB MOBO, Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Professional, 1000 Watt PSU, Windows7 Home Premium 64 Bit, and hopefully by this Wednesday my SAPPHIRE HD5850 will have arrived. I'm just hoping my Chemo treatment hasn't left me too tired to install it. I've been upgrading for the past few months and I always by chance have my newest part delivered on my last day of treatment :-/ I really wanted the Phenom II X4 965, unfortunately the 940 was the highest CPU my motherboard supported and I just couldn't bring myself to buy a new motherboard for the extra 400 Mhz. Plus I would have had to invest in new ram, it would have been pointless to upgrade a mobo and not go with DDR3. Overall I'm happy with what I've turned my rig into. My last CPU was a cheapy Athlon X2 5000. So the 940 was quite an upgrade :-D Anyway, now that I've given my specs Psycho how well should I expect my new card to run?
