Sorry for the late reply. Yeah, so far so good! At first it was kind of worring because when I booted up after the switch windows automatically loaded the drivers for the card but everything on screen was very large (800 x 600) and my default res 1680 x 1050 (for 22" monitor) could not be found! Went into device manager and it stated 'standard vga adapter' and 'plug & play monitor' not my LG monitor.
Rebooted.......same thing, only when I manually reinstalled the catalyst 12.4 drivers and booted again did everything correct itself. Well temps on the card are about 4 - 5 degrees lower now and performance is the same, so I'm COOL with that.....for now!
