post #21 of 36
oops...

so a few less 'lines' ....I will try to find the post relating to this discussion in the nvidia section. Someone a few weeks ago, in this forum, vmod'd a GS up to 700+ on the core.

will see if I can find it later.

If he has the money then go for it...but burn you do know that the price range he is saying is 150-170 while your suggesting a 200 buck card. People do have cuts to make

Yea i need to do the volt mod on mine as it never goes past 53 load on the card. Which is ice cold for a GPU. Do i have to use the pencil mod ands tuff or what is that thing he posted for flashing it?

The whole X19** series will be more future proof as more, and more shader intensive games come to be. It uses more efficient architecture. While the X1900GT might not OC as well, it has other benefits:

- Marginally better image quality over Nvidia's 7900GS
- The ability to run *true* HDR and FSAA simultaneously
- Longevity in the technological race

*waits to get bashed by Nvidia rights activists*

Edited for clarity.

Lol and I'll have many EL OH EL'S when my 7900GS will always have 20% or so more FPS in games. Id rather have the smoothness of frames over a little image quality any day.
