Have I been ripped off ?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Ok I've been looking at overclocking my gc and I've run into a few little strange things.
The box says that it's a 6800 with 256 Mb of ram
3dmark06 says the gpu is a 6600 with 256 Mb
the default clock and me freq is 300 and 400 (overclocked it's 327 and 439).
The max number of pixel units (2) and vertex units (3) according to rivatuner
are unlocked.
Or am I missing something (like my brain) ?

Is there a part number or sticker with a part number on the video card itself?

It would be unusual for 3dmark06 to register incorrectly. What scores are you getting with the card in '06?

Omri was a tad vague.

He wants you to pull your heatsink off the card and see what it is, that will tell you immediately. (but it requires taking the heatsink off)...

Check for serial numbers or part numbers, thats the easiest.

Judging by your benchmark, I'd take it back if you can.

Sounds like a 6600 not a 6800. 6800's have 8 pipes and memory is higher than that. I'd take it back.

Yeah I think it's a bit late I've had it a while and I have no idea where the reciept is, although I do know that I bought it on my credit card.
hmm do you think stating mis-reprisentation of goods is grounds for calling for a charge back ?

If the reciept you were given indicates a 6800 and you received a 6600, then that is grounds for a chargeback. be prepared for the credit card company to request a copy of the reciept. If you can't find the bill. Go back to the computer store and request a copy of the reciept. Tell them your computer was stolen and you need it for insurance replacement purposes. You might even "suggest" you will replace your entire computer through them. It's the old carrot on the stick trick. If they give you a copy of the bill check it and compare it to the marks on the gpu as noted above. Then you have documentation to support your issue.

Sneaky...I like it.

Geforce 6800 Core clock default should be 325, memory should be 700.
