I personly don't think the 5600 Ultra is up to the job to run DX9 ....
You must look at it's bigger brother, the 5700 Ultra, wich is based
upon the 5800 Ultra with some ideas from the 5900 Ultra series...
running at 5700 Ultra speeds.
A few bottle necks that exist within the 5600 Ultra series are removed
and now the 5700 Ultra picks up quite a nice level of speed!
