I know WEI means nothing but overclocked im surprised i can hit 7.9 with a gtx 465.

Anyone been able to hit the number with a lower spec card than this? (like a 6770 or something along those lines).

BTW point of this thread was to find out how low of a video card can get a 7.9 in WEI overclocked. Since the replies stopped ill assume gtx 460/465 is about the lowest that can achieve a 7.9. BTW a stock 465 gets 7.6 in WEI.

I bet a really good overclocking 6850 could hit 7.9. I had to bump the volts a bit to hit 860mhz on my 465. 6850 is about the same level as my card.

Hmm that is weird, a stock 580 should get 7.9. Also, evga still sells 580's so im sure they would send you one.

But if you get a 670 instead of a 580, you can sell the other 680 and go SLI 670's for a nice upgrade at very low cost. 670's can get some nice sale prices, and if you play any of those F2P games, theres $150 in game credits (3 games x $50)

I hit 7.9 with my stock GTX 470 1280MB. I have it now @ 900/1800/1800 and it's pretty smooth. Handles any game I throw at it, really.

Hmm never heard of this issue, built my PC in aug of 2011 and havent had a non overclock testing blue screen in that time.
