    I received my HD 4670 today. Got it installed. Working just fine. Here's a pic of Device Manager and the System Properties screen.

    Now I'm just waiting to hear from Meaker to see how the HD 5650 turns out.

    When Windows starts first time after unexpected shut-down it bumps up a report with the informations such as BCC code I mentioned and so on...

    @TehSuigi

    Well I fixed the issue with disabling the RMClock... In reality, it works great on high frequencies, with no shut downs... As soon as it goes to idle for some time, half an hour for example, it just shuts down, for no reason... Even if I try raising the lowest voltage, it wouldn`t change things better... So I just decide to retire it, at least when idle...

    hi, i have a Acer 6530G which currently has a ati 4570 in it. Is it possible to upgrade this to a Nvidia 9600GT or can it only be upgraded to ati cards like the 4670. thanks

    Ok I have ordered a GTX460M.

    I am going to try doing the same procedure when it arrives.

    Wish me luck, I may need it lol.

    @dubsflyt: Welcome to the forums! I double-checked the Aspire 6530G, and sure enough the Nvidia GPUs are seen in its FRU list. Given that none were sold with the 6530G, I'd label it a bit risky, but should still be totally doable. Best of luck!
    @Meaker: Good lord, you're a nutter. ;)
