guess i got lucky on my retail bfg6800gt overclock. mine does 430/1.15 on the stock cooler with roughtly the same temps you guys are mentioning. guess ill have to get one of these coolers and flash to theu ltra bios and see if 450 is possible
yeah 310+tax for the gt out the door price then send a copy of the sale recipt and a paycheck stub to bfg for 5%(i think could be more) under what best buy paid for it making the card around 270 or 300 if you factor in tax, but you have to be a employeee and if your buying it for a friend you...
if by crapy ram you mean high latencies like cas3 4-4-8, get the gig youll be better off, i sure as hell cant tell a bit of difference in gaming with loose latencies compared to tight ones, sure benchmarks show it. now good quality ram overclocks farther usally.
if i was in your shoes id...
ha i work at 383, sold one last night to go into a gateway. i did encounter one problem installing it thou, there was a cap right by the PCIe lock that had to be slightly bent upwards to allow the video card to be seated properly
well i got a new bfg 6800gt oc today, got if for 276 with my employee acomidations.
so far i have it overclocked to 415mhz core and 1120 on the memory, now i know the stock retail bfg dual fan heatsinks are known not to be great performers.
would i benefit by going with a artic cooling...
great just what i wanted to hear. the store i work at already had a shipment in but they are holding it till the 20th, and i didnt want to pick up a copy and not like it. guess i know wht im doing tommorow :p
point of existance will probally be the main game i think. the last few lans a iwent to bf192 DC was all everyone was playing, and poe bfv mod is simply awsome. sure its still beta and not as polished as dc, but it will get there oneday
surely they will get hundreds of complaints and possibly put out a patch to allow you to play the game and use 120% at the same time. what game was it they did a patch too, and it did the same thing, any virtual drive was detected and the game would not run. was it rainbow six ?. anyway they...
with out a doubt the DFI Infinity or lanparty REV b is the best overclocking mobo for the athlon axp's. my nf7-s overclocked just as good but needed a volt mod to run high fsb. with the DFI board and better n/b cooling 250+ fsb is attainable
256megs on a 9600 pro is a total waste, the settings needed to utilize all that memory will make both the 9800pro and 9600xt will give you a nice picture, but it will look like a slide show. a 128meg 9800pro would be a better buy
yeah but if you bought a 9700pro when it first came out you have to be happy about that purchase. it has been surpassed in the performance department, but is still a damn good card, and can play virtually any game at a decent res and details.
im running a vantec ion2 350 watt psu on my 3200+, k8n neo, 2x80 gig SATA drives and a 6800gt and have no problems what so ever. the ion2 rails specs are low compared to other PSu's but for 38 bucks it awfully nice
the sl6wk d1 3.0c is a monster overclocker, ive seen a few do 3.7+ on the stock cooler. my 3.0c will do 4ghz 1.70V on air with sp94 and tornado, but on the stock fan im limited to around 2750mhz. the 3.0c should give you a higher overall speed compared to a 2.4or 2.8
