yeah, what that means is "Holy crap. . . i have no operating system". The computer just needs Windows or Linux put on it.

Hi, thanks for all the help i'm rly happy with my new pc now it works lol.
Im going to send back the 6800gs xxx and keep the X850XT because its about 5-10% faster
3d marks 2005 for the 68gs xxx = 5687
x850xt = 6075
cod2 fps rates the 850 gets about 5/10 more fps on highest specs
one funny thing i noticed was on the cod2 main menu GS was 650 on fraps and the XT was 850 so sicnificantly higher there for some reason.
quake 4 I was unable to test fps becase its capped at 60
Not sure which card is the best OCer
One point to note is the XT card is a fair but louder (sometimes) while the GS keeps nice a quiet although I did notice a couple of beeps from the stock GS while doing 3d marks 05, which I think means it wasn't running too cool (at least i think thats what they are)

1 happy gamer signing out :tazz:

Glad you got it going, the x850 is the faster card its the fastest card of the last generation of cards available so its pretty good, it uses a R480 core for reference as well R520 is the nexer core used on X1800s.
