    Hi all, I just got my XFX 5700U in the mail today. a few questions though; how can I tell if i have direct x 9b, and if i dont have it where can i download it?

    next, with the forceware driver it seems that OC is not possible...
    I was using Powerstrip on my 4Ti but when i used it with this card it froze on 3DMark03. So is there a new version of PS I should download? Or another software I can use? Thx in advance for the help:)

    P.S. my current 3DMark03 score is 3674:geek:
    need to OC though before Im happy

    type dxdiag into Run and you should get a screen like the one shown below. The Dx version is listed at the bottom. If you are not up to date you can get the latest from Windows Update or microsoft.com
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    I would just use coolbits to OC.

    It just modifies the registry to allow you to see the Overclocking panel in your display properties.
