Im with you i think ncix might have wrong info. If you wanna return it probly could get away with it without restocking fees saying the listing lies and you didn't get the product you was exspecting to get.

As others have said, looks like NCIX have the wrong info, so double check the box.

However, seeing as you say you bought it in a local store, does the box say it is DDR3 too and that is what is confusing you?

the box says DDR2

http://img.ncix.com/images/27147_5.jpg

its hard to see, but if you notice where it says Super+ 1GB right below in smaller letters it shows DDR2, that image is from the ncix website...

http://img.ncix.com/images/27147_1.jpg

thats my identical card, as taken from the ncix website, identical in every way, however, they claim its ddr3, and apparantly even palit claims its ddr3, but the box shows DDR2 etc... I dont know *** is going on here....

Reason I was asking is cuz im looking to SLI two of these, yet if I cant get an identical card, how the heck am I gonna be able to do that hmm... lol

EDIT

http://techgage.com/article/palit_ge...00gt_super1gb/

Thats a review of my card where they say its supposed to be 700mhz on the ram, but mine is only 500, so I think maybe it is defective after all, but that still doesnt explain how ncix seems to think its 800mhz....

I very much doubt its defective - maybe GPU-Z is reading it wrong, try ATiTool.

If the box says DDR2 and Palit claim its DDR2 (look at their page!) and GPU-Z say its DDR2 it looks like NCIX have their info completely wrong =/

Dude, asides the DDR2/3 stuff, it's perfectly fine and reading exactly how it should be. It CLEARLY states that the ram speed is 1000MHz (effective) and your gpuz says 500MHz (1000 effective).... so what's the problem?

Ramdac=/=ram clock speed

http://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/a3yhb/ <-- GPU-Z validation

I am a bit confused.... I have this card, but my GPU-Z shows me different stats.

The box is identical to the one pictured, the PCB, layout, color, everything is identical to what is pictured, yet this item shows 800mhz ram *DDR3* while my card IS 500mhz DDR2, I dont konw if this is something with my card, or if its something with ncix product description, maybe error or something..

This card has NEVER been overclocked, my drivers are up to date from nvidia website as of this post date/time, and it has ALWAYS shown me these specs...

These specs have shown in two different systems, with two different motherboards, entirely different system actually, same thing. When I game, it doesnt seem to be performing how it should.. I realize its no 8800, but still, its an 8600..
Palit does not have a 1gb ddr3, thats why they are so cheap, they use 1gb of ddr2.

the extra 768 mb of ram, is basically worthless on that card, because it isnt used for too many games, or video content, that card is more for hd viewing, and blu ray, than it is, for gaming.

check tigerdirect.
assuming this is the card you have(jus diff heatsink, this will show the real specs, Tigerdirect, is usually never wrong on the specifications of products.
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...591&CatId=2306
but i am positive that, palit does not have a 1gb card with Gddr3 in the 8600 series.

I agree that ncix is most likely wrong. That card on tigerdirect however isnt my card. I realize its identical to the one pictured on palit's website, but I cant even find an image for my card from their site, perhaps they made a revision... Either way, My card has dual DVI and svideo, while that tigerdirect card has Dsub, hdmi, and single dvi.. aside from that, the heatsink, and PCB color, the card looks identical... Dont know about the specs though.
