Re: FX5600XT Improvements
5600XT's best benifits come from ramsinks, a replaced GPU heatsink/fan, and a voltmod... With all 3 of these in place (and the optional addition of a different 5600 bios), you would get the absolute most from that card.
However, the money's worth that you spend doin all that stuff, you could just sell it, throw a few bucks down and get at the very least a 5700NU, which actually would when overclocked feel like an upgrade from a 5600XT... a card that in stock configuration performs on par with a GF3 ti200...
