New EVGA Akimbo 8800GT Any thoughts?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I just bought the EVGA 8800gt Akimbo edition the non oc'd. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130347 When i bought it I was thinking I could probably just OC it to the OC'd cards specs or close. Once I made it over to overclock.net (unfortunately after buying) I started to second guess myself as to my final decision, although I still firmly believe this card will be awesome I was just wondering if everyone else is hip to this card too or if maybe I should of went 9600GT or somethin. Tried posting in the "official" forum but apparently it is not a hot area right now.

The 8800GT is better than the 9600GT. So it's all good.

Ya I was pretty sure of that.....seems there are some 8800gts close to the price of the Akimbo (before the rebate) that thought started to cross my mind. How about OC'n it EVGA lets you OC w/o warranty void I thought right? This will be my 1st EVGA card.

I honestly don't think EVGA cares if you overclock your card. I believe its BFG that doesn't let you OC your cards.

I have the SC (650) and run it above SSC clocks.
Every card is different so there is no right answer.
Sometimes it's the luck of the draw.

Too true, I have a bog standard xfx 8800gt, and am able to run it 803/1988/950 with the bios volt mod. Without the mod I was stuck at 750/1850/950.

Nice Numbers I hope I can have the luck of the draw Plus I think that cooler is a beast and that can't hurt
