Damn fine work, Supreet, damn fine. Although I think that the JPEG compression really stripped away a lot of the quality of your screenshots.

Must be a nice upgrade from that 9800 Pro.

Thanks,

Well I had to lower down the JPEG quality to Medium so that it can be easily uploaded, as I have slow Internet Connection speed here at my place. Although, yes games look much better than what it appears on the screenshots.

And Adam, yea I am blown away by the performance difference between X850XT CrossFire and 9800Pro, the difference is awesome!.

Also, I forgot to add that, I haven't noticed any heat problems with cards yet. :

Oh yes Mark, Age of Empires III is a nice game, and even better detail on advanced levels, I am sure you'd like the gameplay :)

Darkie :), yea, it has very efficient Dual Slot cooling solutions and automatic fan controller which keeps the heat away, I was just wondering I've seen so many threads in which so many people complain about about how hot it can get, but I don't have any problems.

Aww Super, yep, these cards are nice! :)

Yea, nice game it is. I remember, I actually stopped playing F.E.A.R for it, you know just to give more time to Age of Empires III rather :D

Oh yes Matt, I would love to have XPRESS 3200 Motherboard, it should overclock even better than RD480.

Thanks Chris, I'll also add screenshots of Battlefield II & FarCry in coming days. :)
