I thought you meant that firefly, but was a little confused as to why you chose that as an answer to "which do you like more, AMD or Intel" :P

Not actually seen the series, but have seen serenity, and liked it, so finding and watching Firefly is on my todo list of TV shows (that I don't seem to be getting through very quick).

i think its the PRO. had some gift cards that needed to get used up and it was on sale for $50 off and then add in the $150 in gift cards gave me a total of $50 spent. i do know i can play COD4 on lowest settings and get 15-20 FPS and still do a good job killing. but still need to do an over hall.

@DMB2000uk
Firefly is the only TV show that i would watch with any one regardless of there age or personality and is the only show that i can't wait for the next season (season 2) to come out.

Have they re-instated the show then? Because I seem to remember it being cancelled a while back.

when did you get it, cause mine was sub $100 this august or so, and this card has been a nightmare for drivers, all i could use was the cat 7.7 on the disc until 8.1 came out, and even then it wasn't exactly a walk in the park :roll: and i tried NFS: PROSTREET, that was fun, 1024x768, lowest settings possible= 8-35 fps, being on the tail end of that :( heres to my new rig coming.....eventually :partyman:

not sure when i got it but i did have one hell of a time getting every thing up and working (thought it was just me). given 4 blocks and 3 ways to place them took a while before blind luck made it work. Then about Nov. blue screen of life comes up and every time i turn on my pc i get some error about mom.exe was able to track it back to an ATI program but every thing still works like it should (i think). had planed to do a full upgrade with the new Phenom but that made a bust and now i am just waiting for some thing grate and well priced.

mom.exe is part of catalyst drivers, pretty sure its the Catalyst control center launcher, it usually just messes up on me if i uninstall the display driver, but not CCC

yeah, i had two nvidia card before this card, my mx2 200 and geforce4 ti 4200, both worked with ease, never a driver issue, never an OCing issue, but ATI was better for price, and im sticking with ati for a while now (because i won an OEM HD 3870 X2 1GB in januarys contest here :mrgreen: ) so i'll see if newer cards are as much of a PITA :P
