    Cool looks a good price…

    I’d be interested to see a before and after benchtest if you don’t mind downloading say Unigine_Valley-1.0 (free) and posting the results?
    asus s500c sonicmaster game rez.

    gygabit amd desktop game rez.

    p.s. my Asus laptop and windows 7 shouldn't be that hard for your system to top.

    Sure thing... will do! I will post an update when I actually install it and then run the test! Thanks again for all of your help! I have learned a lot in the past couple days! :)

    Hey, ussnorway and everyone else! I finally got that new GPU installed! Here are my before and after benchmarks. It was quite a drastic improvement... almost seven times better!

    Oh, the card ended up costing $125.98 for the SC version after the rebate. I still have to mail it out, though.
