(this link is the back of the gs)<br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowImage.asp?Image=14-145-133-02.jpg%2C14-145-133-03.jpg%2C14-145-133-04.jpg%2C14-145-133-05.jpg%2C14-145-133-06.jpg%2C14-145-133-07.jpg&CurImage=14-145-133-04.jpg&Description=CHAINTECH+GSE76GS-A1+Geforce+7600GS+256MB+GDDR3+PCI+Express+x16+Video+Card+-+Retail" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...ard+%2D+Retail</a><br>
(this one is the gt)<br><a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowImage.asp?Image=14-186-004-02.jpg%2C14-186-004-03.jpg%2C14-186-004-04.jpg%2C14-186-004-05.jpg%2C14-186-004-06.jpg%2C14-186-004-07.jpg&CurImage=14-186-004-04.jpg&Description=Foxconn+FV-N76TM2D2+Geforce+7600GT+256MB+GDDR3+PCI+Express+x16+Video+Card+-+Retail" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/ShowIm...ard+%2D+Retail</a><br>

Never mind.Its same as GT.It just has lower clocks.U can easily turn it into GT.I also have Gs with DDR3 and I set clocks to Gt clocks.

Don't go past 1.5v on air. And thats with a good cooler. Far too many cards have burned out because the people with the cards kept asking me to mod their BIOS with more volts than I recommended using. <img src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
1.55/1.6v on water.

Watch the type of memory on that GS. It may not be rated as well as the mem on the GT. The GS may have 1.6 or 1.8 ns memory as opposed to the GT which most likey has 1.2 or 1.4 ns memory.

They might be the same, but as you can see from <a href="http://www.digit-life.com/articles2/video/g73-2.html" target="_blank">this</a> site (about 1/4 of the way down the page) that the layout for the GT and GS are not the same, so I would be careful with a volt mod.

Okay, I looked at the pic of your GS and the reference GT on that site, looks like your GS uses the reference GT PCB, so go ahead and see how far you can OC that beast!

<a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835118117" target="_blank">Here</a> is one, and <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835186130" target="_blank">here</a> is another one. It fits the 7600GT, but not 100% sure about the GS. I have the Zalman, and it works great! Most people like the VF-900, but this is a lot cheaper, and just as effective.

GDDR3 (Graphics Double Data Rate3) takes this one step further, requiring less voltage than DDR2, and scaling even futher (though with some latency penalty).</div>

</div>That might help. Basically DDR3 runs faster, and has more overclocking headroom.
