Yup, time to ditch the ATI sh1t and go back to what's best.

Had nothing but problems from day 1 since I got the 5970, along with the woeful driver support, its been one big headache.

This arrives tomorrow :sphere2:

EVGA Geforce GTX 580

Gonna have to run it on air for a while though until the waterblocks arrive, should be fun :)

Pics will follow soon.

As a once avid nvidia user I will NEVER go back to them. Having said that, good luck and I hope you enjoy the new hardware :sphere2:
