I don't have crysis but yeah i can run metro 30+ easily. What do you have your 9800's OC'd too?

You forgot to turn PhysX off for your 3DMark runs .

But I agree, those were great cards in their day. And eVGA did in fact make the 1GB Akimbo version too.

Sadly, they are identical in every way shape and form to the GTS 250 and 9800GTX. Yes there are some 9800GTX+'s which had a die shrink, and some GTS 250's that had a die shrink. But there were also some that still were on the 65nm die too. That is one thing that REALLY turned me off of Nvidia for a while.

And the I can tell you from experience, the GTX470 isn't honestly MUCH of an upgrade from your SLI'd 8800's. I just came from a single 4890 (slightly worse than your 8800's in SLI), and going to the GTX470 honestly wasn't all that mind blowing other than Folding.

There are some aftermarket coolers for those. The TT DuOrb is what I had on mine and still have in a box around here somewhere.

Oh i didn't know i had phsyx on I just ran them at all default setting's and posted my scores.

Yeah that's why i don't know if i should even upgrade them for a while besides the vram part. These card's blow me away and for the price they cannot be beaten. I think im gonna stick with these babies and upgrade later to a much better upgrade like a gtx 580 and keep these for getting a dedicated bigadv rig going and using the other for phsyx

That vantage gpu score is equal to a really OC'ed 450 and a bit less than my gtx285..

8800 FTW
post #19 of 84
oh come on? 770 only?

crank the volts and push em up to 900 core 2200 shaders!

all they need is ~1.4v and some great load temps, and of course some voltmod loving!
my G92 is one of the best scaling cards i have ever vmodded.

8800GTX is up there too, but only for the shaders. 702/1944/1150 1.65v anyone?
