Trouble identifying video card

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I grabbed some info from the card itself, and more from the service tag at Dell

From Dell:

1R7240CARD (CIRCUIT), GRAPHICS, 256, 6800, UHMGA11-B

From the card itself:

CN-0R7240-69072-4B3-0229
NVIDIA 180-10211-0000-A03
4B1D127960

I wanted to get started on overclocking my video card and figured identifying the model was the first step, any advice?

When I purchased the card I am almost certain it was a 6800 Ultra, in a Dimension 8400. However, going back for drivers from the Dell site does not specifically mention Ultra as a video card, but rather the GT or GTO (which confuses me greatly).

Its an Nvidia Geforce 6800, possibly a GT. Just plug it into your motherboard, turn it on, download and install some Nvidia drivers, and the drivers will tell you what card you have installed.

It's an Nvidia 6800GT(PCI-E or AGP), first install some drivers and then download Coolbits 2.0(search google for it) and you're set, after you done all that, I will tell you the next step.

I've downloaded Coolbits 2.0. Ready!

Go into Display properties > Advanced > 6800GT or your video card name, then find overclocking in the menu to the right. Accept the EULA and go to manual overclocking. Increase it step by step, testing it to make sure there are no artifacts (there are threads to tell you what those are). Have fun.
