Got the card installed last night. <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814122008" target="_blank">http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814122008</a><br>
Idles at 44c and loads at about 70. Detect optimal frequencies got 600/1648 from the stock 520/1400. This is with the stock cooler and no cooling on the ram<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Ill be getting a vf700 or 900 to see what it can really do.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin">

</div>?? 7300gt has the same 8 pipelines but better vertex engines plus 520/1400 stock vs.500/1000 on a 6600gt. Also 7 series is over better architecture. If you have 115 then yes. I only had 80 dollars to spend on a vid card.

Awesome, thank god someone else bought this card on the forums<br><br>
I am currently building my Bargain Gaming Rig (Yes buffoons, we try to save money and get some decent performance <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick out tounge caps">)<br><br>
Anyways I'd appreciate it if you could tell me all the spec's on how this card works as far as gaming goes. Maybe even some screenshots on games you play and the settings you use.<br><br>
I'd also appreciate it if you could tell me of any cooling products for this card, since I've never bought a cooling device for anything at all..

The reason I want to go with this card is because it's only £50 for what looks like a decent product, where as a good 7600GT is around £120, which I don't currently have to spare. I'm already pushing my limit with the overall budget for the rig..

The 7300GT with DDR3 is a really good budget card. Faster than a 6600GT at stock speeds and they are really good overclockers. If you are on a really tight budget it is definately the card to get. It will be a huge upgrade over you 5200FX adam144.

The cards been great so far<img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> Detect optimal frequencies gave me 600/1650<img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" /> Im looking for a cheap vf700 to throw on and with that I think it can go a lot higher. I only play css but with max settings(no aa or af yet) I get anywhere from about 60-140 fps with a stock 3000+. Once my opty 146 gets here Ill try to open it up a little and do some benching.<br />
And yes if your like me and don't have enough for the 7600gt this card is perfect.

</div>If you plan on doing more than 1280x1024 then wait for the 256mb version. If not its a great buy. Ill be ordering the vf700 or 900(can't decide<img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />) tommorrow and will post results as soon as I get everything up and running<img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" />

oh my Monitor only runs to 1280x1024, which I'm keeping with my plain ol' Dell desktop. I do have a spare dell monitor but I don't think the resolution goes that high for some reason. But I don't need anything higher than 1280 x 1024, it's fine for me as is.<br />
<br />
I just started working at Best Buy but the discount on computer products is actually worse when compared to buying as a customer. (Best Buy employee discount is 5% more than what Best Buy pays for the product. The computers they by actually cost them more than what they sell them for so I dunno how much of a discount I'd get off that monitor.)

Why would best buy sell their computers at a loss? They don't make THAT much from the geek squad.

I got a 6600GT for 100 buks and with a 550/1000 to 567/1147 oc (no artifacts). If you are a cheap ass, then get this gpu. If you are not i recommend 7600GTS.<img src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Gunner2" class="inlineimg" /> <img src="/images/smilies/gunner2.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Gunner2" class="inlineimg" /> <img src="/images/smilies/eek.gif" border="0" alt="" title="EEK!" class="inlineimg" /> <img src="/images/smilies/thumb.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Thumb" class="inlineimg" />

Based on my previous ownership of three levels of graphics cards (X300se, 7600GS (then sli'd), X1900XT). I would say either buy this card, or an X1900XT. The difference from a mid range card to a high one is so great and you should not waste your money on something that you are going to want to replace in 3-4 months.
