I couldn't take it anymore! Goodbye GTS..... Hello my new love <3

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Two months ago I purchased my video card (and a few other parts) from frys electronics (kinda had to, so I paid $460 for the 8800GTS) I had a $60 rebate but I held off on that since I knew I was going to maybe step up to a 8900 (if it ever came out by that time). When the 2900xt released with non competitive #'s to the GTX, I knew Nvidia did not have to release the 8900's anymore until its GTX is beaten. With Intel's price cuts on the 22nd, I really wanted a Q6600 for $266.... Well it was a hard decision, but with my $60 rebate gone, I figure might as well do it. Sigh.... hope I made the right decision. New GTX coming next week


EDIT: I cancelled the step-up cause its a waste right now. In other news, my new Lian Li A05 silver case will be here mid next week!

Check here for benchies:

12k should be fairly easy (of course, USFORCES is running SLI!)

Just did it! 12,022 3DMARK06! YEAH!

Impressive,but as you know, 3dmark06 does not reflect real world performance 2900xt does great in 3dm (even beating the GTX), but in games it flops against the GTX. Anyhow, congratulations on the score!

yes I know that

But compared to other GTS's, it's impressive in my book (the memory clock of 2210 helps quite a bit I believe )

I am not far behind the bulk of GTX's with this score.

Overclock that GTX and enjoy!
