A Mean set of old school GTX-280's

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So Ive had the pleasure of owning my GTX280s since about June of '08, and like most people in this section of OCN, I took them for a swim a while back...



As of now I have the cards SLId and running at 715 | 1430 | 1280

Although Im not quite ambitious enough to start and maintain a rate the clocks above you or a GTX280 performance thread.. I am curious to see if anyone else has pushed any more juice outta these bad boys...

All input appreciated everyone welcome...

That's an old photo too, I've reworked a lot of the unsightly bits.

Remember i've got the 285's not the 280's I'm not sure if you'll see similar numbers?

Yes I remember using my dual HD4850's. They were pimp and still work to this day. Good times.

EDIT: Looking back on release day prices of those cards is making me want to cry. I want toughs prices again...
