Default Got a brand spankin new 5900nu :)

So my asus 5900 died on me a couple weeks ago, I was afraid that when I sent it in I wouldnt get an original NU, but to my suprize yesterday I did recieve one. I guess ASUS kept some in stock for RMA's?

I flashed it to a 5950 nearly as soon as i got it, and even better it overclocks a bit more than the last one...550/1015. So all in all the 3 week wait did end up with me getting a little extra, and its nice to know theres still some original NU's out there

I'm very happy with my 5900NU. Flashed it months ago to 5950 and its been great at 515c/985m. Not as fast as your new one, but still pretty fast!

Score about 6147 in 3D Mark 03 too

i love my fx its gets the job done very well IMO, granted ive had to overclock my system a bit, but for me it works great. I can play farcry at 1280x1024 2xaf all settings on very high and i average 40fps, Doom3 1280x1024 4xaf on high settings avg 40fps again, CS Source 1280x1024 2xaa 4xaf high settings and score 56fps

edit: new 3dmark03 best

Have fun with your card. My FX 5900 runs all of my games well, but I'm not really a dedicated gamer.
