Welcome to Guru3D ! And, no prob's, glad to be involved. Especially when considering my Aopen 5900nu , which I still use today, also benefitted enormously from bios and card modding. In fact, other than for 3dmark05 DX9c scores, my modded and overclocked 5900nu scored better than my newer 6800le out of the box during 3dmark01, 3dmark03, Aquamark3 and Codecreatures1 testing. Mind you, now unlocked and overclocked, the 6800le is the much better card in all areas. However, hopefully the wealth of knowledge and eperience in this thread is still around for a long time to come, since the page and viewing counts alone show that there has been, and is still, an enormous interest out there ! The 5900 is a very good card with excellent potential for becoming much better at little or no extra cost. And still being able to pick one up very cheaply these days at places like eBay, just makes it a better choice; even if only for a second, or little brother's/sister's, computer setup. So I suppose it could be said that it is obviously a continuing or new interest from astute people like yourself that still keeps this thread alive and well !
