Got a locked Best Buy x850 Pro card - Page 2

post #11 of 12
From what I've read some of the pipelocks are inside the gpu. Since humans don't have the same precision than machines, well it means no touchie .

If that is the case for your cards ..

I'm going to take it back and get my $$ back and headto curcuit city and make thme price match this one from best buy.

If this 3rd one from a different store(and one that doesn't sell and many video cards I might add) doesn't work I give up.

I might keep this card though.

When running at XTPE clock speeds this cards eats my 6600GT that was overclocked prety much to a 6800GT up.

Maybe it would be worth keeping and calling it good on this AGP port.

The question is: is it worth it to spend the extra $100 to get that extra 20%?
