anything like this for nVidia?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of getting a new video card and trying to get the best bang for my buck. I know that a Sapphire X800 GTO2 can be flash to run at X850 XT equivelent. Just curious to see if any nVidia video cards does anything similar. Any info is appreciated. Thanks.

wow i'm so uninformed about ati/intel, but i do stick to the best combo: AMD/nVidia

I'd also suggest getting Nvidia, 6800gs is like 200$, or 7800gt is around 300.

Yeah, the 6800gs can be flashed to a 6800gt I think. I could be wrong, though. I'd get a nVidia anyway.

No.. It cant... And it would be pointless, the 6800GS is kinda superior to a 6800GT anyways (in OC'ability), and at 425/1100 its like a 6800GT, and at 485/1100 its like a 6800Ultra.. (which XFX sells a 485/1100 version)
