    A8V-Deluxe R2, 3200 winnnie hangs when useing AGP/PCI lock.

    Apparently my a8v has an issue with my cpu or something. I can oc to 2.5~2.6 on stock cooler no problem(except i have to use a divider because of the pissy via crap set), but other than that it oc's ok. Anyhow when i use the AGP/PCI lock the system will some times hang when booting, all the...

    A8V Deluxe Rev 2 opinions please

    What are your BIOS settings? For some reason mine goes nutz when i try 250 fsb when i lock it to DDR400 for effective asyncronous fsb. I don't know why, it just won't get up there and I have brand new OCZ PC4000 which is reccommended for my mobo. I think the average A8V's only do about 230 FSB...

    ==How to Flash the BFG6800GT OC into an Ultra in a safe way==

    I agree. If anything and you get a dud ocer, just mod the voltage to 1.4 with omniextremeedit thingy. Although you need a decent heatsink, i have to get the arctic silencer 5 before i can oc mine on 1.4v.

    Abit AV8 Third Eye or Asus A8V DeLuxe

    I'd say MSI neo 2 boards. I have an A8V r 2.0 deluxe. Its one of the best and smoothest running mobo's i've ever used(have used Abit, Asus, MSI and gigabyte). But its haveing problems with the winchester cores. I guess its fairly common on a certain stepping of the winnie cores, but the AGP/PCI...

    A8V Deluxe Rev 2 opinions please

    NO the PCI/AGP lock does NOT fully work on all the rev. 2.00 baords. ALOT of people who have winchester cores are haveing problems with it, it causes the system to hang before booting and several other weird things. Its ONLY the winchester that it is currently haveing problems with and i believe...

    A8V not at its limit??

    You board is most likely the problem, acutally the chipset rather. Most K8T800 Pro's top at about 230 or 240 fsb. Try useing a divider to keep the actual memory FSB down. It has literally almost no impact on performance, since the memroy controller is on cpu it reacts differently than the intel...

    ==How to Flash the BFG6800GT OC into an Ultra in a safe way==

    One more question, i think part of the cause may be that i do not use driver cleaner utilities, does anybody know any good ones?

    ==How to Flash the BFG6800GT OC into an Ultra in a safe way==

    No that is not what i meant. What i mean is that every time i run the benchmark my card slows down a little more. If i run it in a loop it will score lower each pass until it stops at a certain point. I am going to do some more testing tonight, but if anybody has any experience wihth a problem...

    Best 6800GT?

    A thought on HL2, the ATI cards do run faster, like 15 ot 20 percent, but that is because HL2 is not full DX9, it uses a combination of DX8 and DX9 even on the fastest cards, so i think that is why, because the 6800's are meant to run their best on full DX9c while the ati cards are abit older...

    Best 6800GT?

    Not only do they have sweet customer service but they also come factory OCed to 370 versus 350 reference. I love my BFG card. The only thing you might not like is that they supposedly have a tweaked BIOS, in my case it prevented me from coing past 380 GPU until i moded the bios to run the gpu at...

    ==How to Flash the BFG6800GT OC into an Ultra in a safe way==

    I successfully flashed to a modified BIOS i made with that one program(its listed onthis forum, to lazy to look it up), any how, i have a BFG 6800 GT OC, now i changed only the gpu volts to 1.4 from 1.3 and lowered the default clock speed to 350 in stead of the 370(since it is factory oced) just...

    ==How to Flash the BFG6800GT OC into an Ultra in a safe way==

    Maybe its not all the GPU's in particular, remember than no two cores are the same on the atomic level or even the microscopic level. So maybe how much juice your GPU can take is simply luck of the draw, most GPU manufacturers use chips on their lower cards that don't quite cut it being top dog...

    The Official DOOM 3 [H]ardware Guide thread.

    Well, I would just like to say Kudos to id for their superb job on D3. The one thing think that i always thought was innovative for gaming consoles was how much their games were optamized. Now computer games are starting to follow the same path, and wammoo!!!! They look exponentially better than...

    Post your 6800 GT OC!

    I said if you don't have a GF Card don't be posting, i have a GF 6800 GT. And i'm not turning anything into a flame war, he asked for benchies, i posted a site, which is well known, to find them at. I also in part agreed with him, he did not believe that the GT was faster than the XT, it is not...

    Post your 6800 GT OC!

    I can't get past 380 on the core and 1.15 on the mem, but that is not too shabby, pretty close to ultra speeds, i suppose i shouldn't complain, cause its free.

    You came to this post just to bash the GF6? Your an ass then, why did you bother posting?? This is for OVERCLOCKING the GEFORCE 6 results, not ATI v. Nvidia, i've had enough of whose bettter crap, they are so close its impossible to tell, and if you really want a link, read the TomsHardware...

    Post your 6800 GT OC!

    Well, you will probably get better results with a stock CPU. I had me CPU oced from 2.6 to 3.12 and had to up the vcore to 1.6v to get it there, i lowered it to 3.003 and it runs stable with stock vcore, now my video card ram goes to 1.15 instead of 1.05 !!, my gpu is still not to high, but 384...

    Well, i've had Nvidia in the past, GF4Ti4400, then went to 9800p, now the 6800, but does anyone know any good ocing utilites for the 6800's?? I know of riva tuner, but i don't want it to change settings, will it change any quality settings if i install it?? Anyone know of any other good and...

    How long until ATI answers the call?

    I think ATI will come up with something, they are pretty good at keeping Nvidia in check, and visa versa, like mentioned b4, the X800's really made Nvidia turn around to keep up, if they would of come out with another FX type card, they would of been cut out of the graphics industry. But...

    6800GT in stock $399 @

    Why so much anger? Anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering, suffering leads ot death!!!!! I think the GT uses 2.2ns and the Ultra uses 2ns, although that is not to big of a difference, otherwise their slightly lower card would be competeing with its bigger brother, lol. If you want proven...

    Is there a point when you SHOULD'NT update the video driver?

    It depends, you should always read the driver fixes paper on the driver, usually its under a tiltle like driver fixes, if there is a known issue with an older card usually Nvidia trys to fix it, they are pretty good at supporting stuff, but I think that the Geforce 2 and 4MX are a bit too...

    What happens when you OC a 6800 GT?

    LoL, your lucky, i was going to order then, but i decided to wait and look more, by then they raised the price to 429, still not bad, only 30 over MSRP, i also ordered from CompuPlus, should come today or tomorrow.

    Just got a new card few easy questions

    It seems to me it is your monitor, if it did a similar thing with the GF4 (in my opinion the best card ever that lived). You should try another monitor, if you have space, i'd deffinately suggest a CRT for gaming, they run around $250 for a high quality 17in flat screen(i have a Samsung...

    Just got a new card few easy questions

    It may be a possibility that it is your monitor, how long have you had it?? Can you test it on another computer?? Check your driver settings, make sure that AA and Aniso and other settings like that are set to auto/appl controled, unless you want them enabled purposely. What size is your...

    Just got a new card few easy questions

    Well, first off the AGP aperature has nothing to do with the video card, it is the amount of system ram your computer can allocate to games, usually 128 works best for 512 mb systems and up, 64 would probably be suitable for 256mb systems. Next Vsync will get rid of the lines, it basically...

    PNY 6800 Ultra

    I wouldn't buy based on PS 3.0 as an advantage, it is unproven and it is uncertain how many games will even use it. I would buy based on your wallet, if you have the dough then get a 6800 Ultra and a new Power supply (unless you already have a 480w PS), the difference in performance is basically...

    Visiontek X800 Pro where to buy under $400..???

    How? They are out of stock! LOL. Hope they get some in soon, i just don't want to order until they get some in stock because they could be the type of company to jack up the prices as soon as the new cards come in although from what i've read they are not that way.

    Abit v Asus for OC......

    I had an P4C800 Deluxe, but I could not get it past 243 fsb. The volts were jumping all over the place which I believe would deffinately cause stability issues with overclocking(this is a common problem among newer asus boards, not ps related in this case). I'm looking at the Abit IC7-Max3 as it...
