Anyone has a benchmark between the Fx5900 and the 5900ultra?
Looking at the difference betwen radeon 9800pro 128 and the 256, I wonder whats the inpact on the Fx5900 non-pro. Also the 50mhz slower for the gpu. You think that with stock HSF(for example the leadtek)I could overclock it to 450mhz(the speed of the ultra 50mhz over the stock speed of 400)
Anyone have any idea whats the performance difference?

You sure you're not thinking of the 5800 Ultra? I've not heard anything bad about the noise level of the 5900 Ultra. (The 5800U was the dust blower.)

hi,

I've got the FX-5900, and was looking at the ultra benches on this website... strikes me that the difference is pitiful unless you go for super high resolutions.

I have a TFT monitor, so cant go about 1024x768x32 so high resolutions dont matter to me much.

I cant remember the exact numbers, but the differences aren't really significant, 10-15fps max (from 178 to 160 for example!), and the 3DMarks are about 100-300 different. Can get some exact numbers if you want.

as for noise and overclocking, get the MSI card - its shown to be stable running at <b>above</b> <i>ultra</i> speeds. Its also got a very cool HSF that runs almost silent (cant hear it over my PSU/CPU).
