I am running a GA-MA78GM-S2H with a +4800 X2 (65W ?) CPU. From what I
have been reading it does not support a 125W CPU. I installed the
catalyst drivers with EnvyNG but it installed 8.3 not 8.4. Gears does
over 2000 frames. I am not sure how to go about installing 8.4 since I
am a new to Myth.
FE and BE run great. I have not got a HDMI cable yet so I can't test
that part of the setup. Waiting for the cable to arrive in the mail.
HD channels are choppy at with the high quality profile. CPU is still
only 50% with HD + High profile so there is room for improving that.
Normal/Slim they run great.
