So,I will be receiving my Sapphire Vapor-X 5850 tomorrow, which drivers should I install?

Currently, there is only the 10.3 driver, and the 10.4 preview driver, and am I wondering which one I should install.

Also, I will be over clocking this already over clocked card.
I was thinking 865-1225, because of the quality components and great vaporx cooling. I cannot volt mod this card, do you guys think this is a good oc, and can I go more?

Thank you very much guys!

Always install the newest none-beta driver.. My advice is to install the 10.3.

I think that is a fairly good OC, but you can get a little more. Just try it ;)

Download the 10.3 driver,10.4 will be out soon
If you play BC2 then install 10.4 preview drivers because they will make the map load times faster(its the only advantage it brings over 10.3)

So you guys think the card will be stable at those clocks without a voltage change? Stock is 725-1000

No one can tell you exactly how much you can OC,you have to play with the clocks in order to get a good and stable OC.
I think 865/1225 is a little high but as i said just play with the clocks to get a stable OC(don't forget about the temperatures though)
