yea. true. I will be water cooling so I know I can squeeze quite a bit extra out of a stock one.

You might want to skip this card altogether. The gtx isnt even really worth buying in imho. Only reason why im getting one is because of the step up.


My invoice is at $439.

I actually paid $360

7900 GTX $499 - $520?

Money out of my pocket............a lot less then i would miss.


I really think any gpu is going to be worth buying unless it is DX10. Other wise you going to be shelling out more money sooner than you'd prefer. Just to stay with the current.


And before any says anything...........stepping up will give my my full moneys worth if you think about. I did

No it won't. I have Auto-Detectd my card many times and get different Clock speeds: 499, 500, 502, 507. If it's written into the BIOS then why the different speeds?? It obviously isn't, plus I can get the card up to 516, if it's written in the BIOS then I wouldn't be able to go over my detected speed now would I

Before your video card boots up, the BIOS is read to set the clock speeds. Yes, they are written in the BIOS. Why are your speeds varying somewhat? The same reason that you'll see your ram or cpu speed fluctuate. As far as not being able to clock higher than what's in your BIOS, I have no idea what your confusion is there. It's the fundamental part of this forum....overclocking.

Competely false, something it is written in the BIOS but there is no number associated with the Auto Detect feature within the BIOS that when you click it it will automatically go to a certain number. Every chip will vary based on it's makeup, no chip is exactly the same. By saying that it will auto detect what is written in the BIOS means that every single Chip will have the same Auto Detect OC, which is wrong.

Most Auto Detect around 485-490 and the occasional 500, some not even that high. If it is then I'll need some

Lol, ok, so you're claiming that it tests the chip and decides what speeds are ok? Just to follow your logic, explain how I can set the core speed on bootup to be whatever I want it to be by modifying my BIOS. Also, the GTO cards that people flash with the XT PE BIOS magically become better chips after the BIOS flash?
