    Also I have been told I really should get this CSSD-F60GB2-BRKT at $275 Aus. Well are they worth it for gaming anyway? With my previous system having a 500GB HD 32mb Cache I loaded in as quick as anyone. Or with that money I should get another 5850?

    Buy one on ebay, a 920 I mean.

    SSD's are great, if you have the cash. Which would be better for you, not sure you will need to look around and see what you think has done best in reviews.

    Ok it's DONE. I went with the GA-X58A-UD5 mobo, another ATI 5850 the Nu-U12P SE Cooler, Kingston Hyper X KHX2000C9AD3T1K3/6GX ram. Born at 10:00pm weighing at 22lb and healthy at first post.

    Cheers for your time in assisting with the new purchase. Now to post in the Gigabyte forum.

    Nice, so the build all went together smoothly?

    If so great to hear, always love hearing the sweet sound of new build success!

    Thought I would share a pic!



    I have removed the rear cooler fan and testing. I believe this is interfering with the airflow.

    Looks good, I like the orange LED fans. Are those blackfire?

    I wish I could find some Blackfire UV blue 120MM fans still!

    One question with the two 5850's On idle GPU 1 is at 52 (30% Fan speed) and GPU 2 is at 25 (25% fan speed)
    Under load the difference is 15c (fan speed on both is set to 50%) between two cards.
    The top card must get a lot of heat from the bottom one for this to happen?

    also I am running two monitors the Primary is my 22inch which catalyst detects it as display 2, and the second is a 19 which is detected as display 1....

    Windows on the other hand display them correctly.

    When playing a game it does run on the 22inch but it's weird I guess..
