8800 GT XXX 512 GDDR3, Safe to OC?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm running card in my sig with a stock fan and was wondering what I could possibly get out of it from over clocking. Any suggestions?

I ran 3DMark06 at stock speeds and came out with a poor 9500~ or so. This is with the rig listed below, I'm about to upgrade to a Q6600 or Q9450. Not sure yet.

Also I was thinking about running my 8800 in SLI and was curious as to what requirements would need to be met in order for me to do this.

Would I just need another 8 series card with 512 GDDR3? I have the other hardware required.

yes. That is all you need. look in the FS threads, there are few people selling 8800gt's (myself included )

My sig rig gets 17500 in 3dmark06. So you can probably hit close to that with your rig, just OC you cpu (if you get the q6600).
