Ok tried them, they arent as bad as 14,3 but saddly for Skyrim they are not constant, sometimes framerate lowers down to 19 and then start rising little by little up to 30-37.

A word of advice...
Sell your 5770 and buy a Nvidia 550Ti for as little as $119.00 (http://www.umart.com.au/pro/products...id=2&sid=84396) less your trade in it will cost you around $50.00 bux or less and enjoy Skyrim the way it's meant to be played . You won't regret it.

i thought we'd outgrown the days of fanboyism here, evidently not...

folks, don't expect to get a rich gaming experience from any 100$ gfx card, regardless of the make, you're gonna be dragging bottom with a budget card...

It's not about to be or not to be a Nvidia fan but about personal experience.

The 550Ti is a better card according to me and thousands of reviews (here one of them: http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/393...rd/index1.html) and I know well that you can't get a rich gaming experience with budget cards but let's be honest I had many ATI card included a 4870x2 + 4870 (in tri-fire) and a 5970 and in many games I experience stutter and other weird shit while with 2x 460 in SLI I have hardly any issues.

I also build many computers for customers and I RMA more ATI then Nvidia cards in the last 12 years.

I used to change video cards for my computers more often than changing shoes but those fucking franchise computer companies has put my small business in a very slow turn simply because I can't afford to pay advertising to Google and right now I can only dream to buy a 680 or even 2 of them...because that's what enthusiast do.

Seems some people are starting to get annoyed by AMD drivers, just check what some are saying in this thread:

http://forums.bethsoft.com/topic/136...imilar-topics/

If AMD dosent do something about their drivers, people will start getting rid of AMD gpu.

Makes much more sense to get an AMD HD 7770 at only 10 dollars more - MUCH better performance.

Take a look at the comparisons between THOSE 2!
