I've recently replaced my GTX460 with a HD7850 and the PPD just isn't good enough. It may have to go!

Have you installed the latest version of CCC? I've seen a lot of performance increases recently...

Why'd you do that? Those GTX cards are monsters for PPD.

You have to move to a 7900 series card or a 5 series NVIDIA card to really see big time points.
