ASTROS are amazing for FPS. They are so sophisticated now.

Hmm, hey guys, I just got this Asus 9800GT, what can I do with it? My dad just picked it up from his office since someone didn't need it anymore.

That sir is a great benching card!
Prep it for cold, grab a plastic sandwich bag, put some dry ice in it and place it between the heatsink and the core. BAM! You got yourself sub-zero cooling.
Only thing left to do would be to volt-modd it to get some extreme overclocks out of it, and some massive 3dmark06 boints. thumb.gif

Will try after a few days, I'm busy trying to catch up. This card isn't that bad. Performs fairly well against my other cards and it OCs great for an old card.

Yeah, think it's actually a rebadged 8800gt, it was so good at the time that they kept it as the top dog for the next gen lol tongue.gif

If you have decent cpu clocks (close to 5ghz) you can get some good 3d boints with it! biggrin.gif

I can run 5.0 for benching so I might be able to do some good.

Yep, go for it!

Anything like 3dmark06, Vantage, Aquamark, and older 3dmarks should do well...
Play with the clocks and compare driver versions to the ones used in the best submissions. That's as far as it goes for tweaks, at least what you get from me wink.gif
(I bench for OCF hehe)

Haha, I'll try doing some soon. I'm trying to get into the habit of benching like crazy, but always scared of killing my stuff. So since this is free, then it shouldn't be a big problem for me.

That's the spirit, plus it's a cheap way to get big points. Either that card, the 8800gt, or a gtx580 are awesome for hardware boints. thumb.gif
You can also bench on unusual cpu's or gpu's, those net good boints cause there are very few submissions. rolleyes.gif

Can anyone verify for me if getchromium.org is a safe site? (It's for the Chromium Browser)
