So I met with a surgeon today and he says I may not need surgery. He is gonna give it a week and decide then, based on how it's healing.

And I cannot believe the nerve of my dad. He rented a car and is going to drive 20 hours with almost no sleep, with my brother in the car. Some people just never learn...

Also, can anyone think of a reason why he would go to extreme lengths to hide the fact that I got hurt from the insurance company? Because it seems like he is doing it. I imagine a broken arm wouldn't screw his rates up any more than if he just totalled the car, right?

I've given up the idea of the 470 and I'm going to spend an extra $100 for an eVGA 480

^ Any reason why you want to sidegrade? The two 5770s will perform pretty much the same as, if not better than, the 480 in all but a few games.

5850 xfire is actually much more cost-effective, as it performs basically the same as a 5970. It would OC better too.

Weren't you going to post some new benches after upping your clocks and maybe doing an SPU unlock?

I still need to post benches on 3DM.

I believe that 2 5770s perform between a 5850 and a 5870. I'm having tons of issues with crossfire.

I'm not getting another ATi card even if I found it for half price (I'd just buy it and then resell it), their drivers are terrible. I'm still on the 10.4 beta drivers because anything else messes up my games.

My ATI drivers are working perfectly fine, I never have any problems.
