  • 8800 GTS OC 320MB results...

    Just ordered a BFG GeForce 8800 GTS OC 320MB for my new system.

    E4300 @3.0GHZ
    Gigabyte GA 965P DS3
    GeIL 2GB DDR2 (2x1GB) PC6400 800MHz

    I am at the moment with no card as i have had to RMA two X1950pro's within 3 weeks due to memory failures on both cards. I thought about it a little and decided to spend the extra and be ready for DX10 & Vista.

    Any1 with any results with these cards yet? Especially overclocking limits if any1 has tried.

    tomshardware has a good article at low resolutions it's equivilant to a 640mb version but at high res (1920 and higher) takes a very large hit.

      Here is another article comparing different cards:

      I know you are asking about overclocking but I don't know anything about that. Hopefully my 8800 will be here next week. I decided to take advantage of the eVGA step-up program.

        If your playing at 1280x1024 or lower res you can max just about everything out on 99% of the games and have no problems, I'll be getting one as soon as I can afford to buy a new PC all together.

          Articles look great. I do indeed play @ 1280x1024 at present so the card looks like a nice purchace for the coming year.

          A friend of mine had one delivered yesterday and he has a 22" samsung, all the games i have seen so far look sweet and run perfectly at 1600x1200 with absolutely no problems ( including Vanguard ), which is nice to know.

            Awesome! I plan on cranking up my 2142 to 1600x1200. I cant wait.

              i believe the card comes overclocked out of the box.

                You are correct Sir,

                Core Speed - 550MHz instead of 500MHz on the standard cards.

                I believe i can get more out of this though :)

                  I'd be shocked if you couldn't get 600-650mhz out of the core and 850 out of the ram.

                    i take it we aren't talking about standard cooling.

                      Speaking of cooling is there any type of aftermarket cooling you can put on these double thick cards? or is it necessary? I looked around but I couldn't find anything.

                          I don't have mine yet. I am still waiting for eVGA to process my credit card. I think those guys play video games all day or something :) From what I have been reading it looks like this card is worth it. I will definatly let you know how it is when I get it though

                          I think the exact length is 10.4 inches. I can't remember where I found this info or I would send you a link.

                            http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130082

                              That is the card I am getting too.

                              I believe this is what you need to look at:
