xfx 8600gt help!!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
well im shopping around for a friend that plans to build a new comp. and well ive come acrossed the xfx 8600gt and there are two versions, the xxx(ooo adult!!!) and the original...i see that the xxx edition is oced pretty high and is priced higher of course, i was wondering if the normal xfx 8600 gt can overclock just as high or even higher...if its a few mhz off it doesnt matter, but i was just wonderin, is the preoced version the bang for the buck?
i dont want to do any volt modding, just want to oc and get the same performance, is it possible?

the oced http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150229

Go for XXX, they are always richer in ingredients. For the best bang of your money, you meight wanna consider my eVga 8600gt 'pervert edition' or 'pervertclocked edition'.

I would go for the GTS instead. It outperforms the GT and you can overclock the card with ATI Tool if you want. The 8600GT just doesnt match up to the GTS.

Quote:
When it comes to 8600GT, price difference of 50 somethings between GT and GTS should not be a reason for you not to go for the GTS one. For future games, 8600GT will be a bare minimum, so do not go under the minimum right away.

It sounds crazy? only took me 5 mints to do the Vmod with pencil. You'll need a good vga cooler like VF900. I fallow this http://sg.vr-zone.com/index.php?i=4925

Mine is an eVga 8600GT superclocked which was preclocked.
