  1. sorry, not going to click on your links, but i can tell you that i'm on a powercolor 6950 right now and my CCC says:

  2. My CCC tells me the accurate Vram that i should have but my dxdiag won't. Does it really matter? Should I be worried?

    PS: The links are just images - ever heard of puush?
  3. nah don't have much time to look at that stuff, working on my computer tech degree 24/7. don't like clicking on foreign domains. thought you said ccc was giving you wrong readout. my dx says "approx" memory 1763.
  4. I have GTX580 with 1,5GB of RAM and DxDiag shows me that I have 4GB of video RAM so I guess it is not acurate reading. Check it in GPU-z.
  5. Try update your graphics! :D
  6. i think that you should have 500 watt right it only have 1x pci connector try to upgrade your psu atleast 700watt okthat make full power consumption to your 6950
    you already notified about minimum requirement is 500 watt to get optimum us of 6950 you should upgrade your psu
    me suggest cooler master corsair seasonic
    for budget 700watt zebrioncs helpful hope it work
  7. Monu, you'll talking lies.. It's just windows bug, not power problem.
  8. sorry for that above yeah i taught so but you will be fine now its windows bug try to go run type dxdiag for your full pc
