Because I'm a freak, and I'm constantly searching for new information, I came across a rather disturbing problem with the ATI 5850.
As many of you are probably already aware, there have been lots of people experiencing "gray lines" and "system crashes" with the 5850. (Here's one of many threads discussing the problem: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/276256-33-radeon-5850-compatible-windows) The leading theory is that this is attributed to the ATI drivers. Obviously ATI is "doing it's best" to correct the situation, but I feel like I may have just screwed myself over!
Have any of you experienced these problems? And if so, were you able to correct it?
Is anyone currently running a 5850 with similar components as I will be? If so, are you having any difficulties?
Any advice on what I should do if it happens to me?
Any news on ATI's progress towards fixing the problem?
