I just upgraded my pc and thought i would share the experience.

Old PC cpu P4 @ 4.01ghz to Q6600 @ 3 ghz
gpu x1950 pro to hd3870

new motherboard abit ip35-e

I just switched it all back on and it all just started straight away, i was quite surprised really as windoze
rarely does.

I ran glxgears and went from just under 6000 to 17000
using 7.12 driver.

AMD has had a positive effect on ati at last.
