since ur card is a x800pro flash to xt, that depends on wats causing the artifacts, if ur extra 4 pipelines are fine at a lower clock speed then a v-mod and cooling setup will definately help as they will increase the maximum core and mem speeds before artifacting occurs.
ViperJohn can soup up your card even further with v-mods and adding his cooling setup. Should be able to get around 700 like 2fresh, but it will cost you a fee. Man my 9700pro feels so ancient next to these psycho modded x800s
The price coming out from the review is saying this card will sell around $130, and after reading the anandtech review, the x600pro is a far better option for the same dough. x700 performed way above the 6600 in most games and wasnt off by much in doom 3 either. $149 i reckon the x700 is the...
Umm...the 6800 Ultras are gonna have a Dual DVI version, there are no plans for 6800 GT to have Dual DVI, dont think they will either cause its a niche market and people that can afford 2 DVI LCDs will buy the very best anyway.
Visontek sure does offer lifetime warranty. Just the 6800 Ultra, before u make more stupid comments. The build quality of Ati cards are great, its not an issue when deciding which card to buy. There are so many good manufacturers making both cards it just isnt even an issue anymore.
5 hard drives including 2 raptors ...2 burners....sheesh u got quite a rig there. that 420 watt vantec might not be enough with that setup.~! ....might need to invest in a 550 watt antec or something similar. :eek:
Going by the power readings on Tech Reports review, 350 Watt will have to be decent brand name power supply, and not some generic POS. Also it will depend alot on what else you are running, add a couple of drives etc., power hungry prescott and the total wattage would be too much for a 350 watt...
