flip mode, sorry for the confusion, sig hasnt been updated in a while. i had the i5 with those cards, then upgraded to 2 5830s, but since sold that system. i found a phenom 955 be with half its pins bent. I took an hour and straightened them, and have been using it ever since. I know a guy who runs a computer repair and sales shop, so i get lots of stuff for next to nothing, or nothing at all, and if i can fix it i keep it. I actually have a 6850 at home that i cant get to post, so im not sure what the issue is or how to go about testing it. But anyway, i have the i7 now, and was just curious as to real world performance differences. i found the i5 chugged along quite slowly at times, and really liked the phenom, but i know the i7 should be quite a big upgrade.
