Default Gotta love craigs list

I really really love craigs list. My last 3 cards have been purchased there. Last year I got an XFX GTX260 216 black edition for $125 when they were still selling for $189 after rebate . 2-3 months later I got a Saphire 4830 for $40 when they were selling for $89 AR and now yesterday I got myself a shinny new Saphire Toxic 5850 for only $200. The kiker the lady that sold me the card asked me what does it do??? By the way I sold the XFX 4 weeks ago for $160 so the net upgrade cost to me a cool $40. I was waiting on Fermi so the 5850 would come down in price to the $240-260 level but I guess I do not have to wait for it anymore . Installed it last night and I am really happy with it. Now to wait for the cats 10.3. Only problem is that I cannot oc it the MSI afterburner. When I move the sliders and then click apply they revert back the defaults????

You need to set the "EnableUnofficialOverclocking" parameter to 1 in the MSIafterburner.cfg file under C:\Program Files (x86)\MSI Afterburner. Very nice price for that 5850!

Little warning with editing the msi afterburner settings, it may give you BSOD, I know I tried to use it and it did.
