I saw CCC on my friends computer, it takes forever to load and is not user friendly at all. We also had to hack is registry because it would default to -15% underscan on every restart! I'm just curious why it's so bad?

I've never had a problem with CCC. Perhaps your friend is using old, outdated hardware?

He just bought a 7950 and has a good CPU and ram

The only reason he got it was because it was $320 shipped but he was dreading bein stuck with CCC again. The underscan problem is widespread and they haven't fixed it in years

It's good thing people buy AMD cards. If you don't like them, look at it this way: If AMD bankrupts, Nvidia will be able to rise the prices to heavens. As long as AMD lives, it doesn't let Nvidia take the king crown and controls the prices. Furthermore, you're always able to choose what you buy yourself :) .

I have had numerous Radeon cards across several systems, and never had a problem with CCC. Of course your mileage may vary, but I've yet to see an issue.

I've also had several nVidia cards, which have also been solid and dependable. Really never have had much trouble with video cards.

Now Creative sound cards...hoo boy, that's a very different story, but probably out of scope for this thread.

Haha well I think the cards are nice, the build quality and performance is really good... Just not digging the software lol. He will click catylist and sometimes it won't open, or it'll take 30-45 seconds to open.

Maybe his computer has other issues, I'll look into it

I personally prefer CCC to Nvidia's software... I had a computer with GTX 670 for around a month, and missed CCC.

Is he using an HDMI out to a TV? I found I had the problem with underscan and still can't get it exactly adjusted how I want it. I got it pretty close. I think at any point and time a series of drivers can be a pain in the ass for some people.

I found it loads a lot slower under XP. Quite annoying TBH. And I have stopped the CCC from loading on start up using the msconfig box. I don't know why but I never looked into it either. Perhaps it needs more memory to load than one would suspect ? Something for the "pros" to look into.

The under or over scan is a setting with AMD not CCC normally when useing HDMI i had this issue a while back with my 5770 once i changed the settings to not over/under scan everything was fine and CCC for me is the one i use to this day with no problems

Exactly, there's a registry hack to fix it.

We just googled it you need to type in a new dword phrase I forget the exact phrase
