Re: 5600 driver nightmares
After getting the 5700Ultra installed, it worked right away. I installed Windows XP, and tried out the first game I had access to, GTA Vice City. WOW! Even with AA 8x it's playable, even when it's raining (Though it jumps a little when raining), and with no AA it's Friggen fast. I can't wait to try some new games on it!
Windows boot times
1st boot after fresh install - 3 seconds
2nd boot after first lockup - 7 seconds (I had the FSB at 400mhz, even tho the barton only supports 333)
3rd boot after driver installs - 7 seconds
WOW! Windows loading faster than linux...
