I must say, overclocking the 8800GTS is quite good.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Well I got my E6600 today and already saw a massive performance boost. So I hopped on F.E.A.R. right away and ran the benchmark with 1280x1024 and everything at MAX, except for Soft Shadows which I have off. I got 94% above 40FPS and the other 6% between 25-40FPS. I then decided to overclock my GTS to a very easy and stable 620//907 just to see what happend. I was quite surprised when I went from that to this:

I'm going to see if I can push this card any higher with clocks, because I never go above 60 on a load temperature, even after running 3DMark 05 or 06. I am also going to overclock the processor to see what other tasty performance increases I can get.

This card is such a great bang for the buck!!

I will also try to keep you guys updated with whatever I do.

Why a badaxe and not a P5B Deluxe?

I'm so tempted to order a GTX right now but.......$560 is a little overpriced.

I wouldn't know. Great card by the way.

As for Nasgul, I'd recommend buying a last-gen card for cheap on these forums (X1900XT from Mikey, 7900GTX from Robilar) or waiting for the R600.
